Funny cars!

I didn't see these in traffic but I didn't want to start another thread so...

I have always had professional camera equiptment & used to go to the drags a lot! One day it occurred to me to print up a fake press pass so I could have unlimited access in the pits, staging areas & just about any other place I wanted to go. I shot these funny cars while they were waiting their turn & the driver for the Budweiser dragster posed for the last foto.

That Stude is way cool. There's a guy around here that has A pair of those headlights on his 32. They are big and oval shaped. Everyone is always asking him what they came off of originally.

Fake press Pass? That's a good one.
 
Free press!!!

Fake press Pass? That's a good one.

1st I scoped out what the real press guys passes looked like. Then I printed one, laminated it & had a little strap for it... worked like a charm. After that I got in for free too... who was gonna say not to free "press"!?!? Also helped to have a pro rig! ; - >

Bruce,
My Dad always loved a good challenge & bought a couple of these old Citroen's from a guy that could not get the hydraulic suspension systems working. He rebuilt the bladders & some other stuff... sold both of them & made some real quick money. I think my Dad did it because the guy told him he couldn't fix them.

Ahh, another AD. Those visors look good on them. I believe that one is a Fulton. Got a Dietrich on Mama's. Heck, I like the visors on just about anything. An old style one like that could look good on your's, Flat.
 
Desoto!

I saw this old Desoto parked on the street & this Poncho was in the drive...

Old homes... old cars go hand in hand!!!

That new neighborhood is just full of old cars, you've come to the right place.

Bonehead,
It's one of the largest concentrations of bungalows in the US & I guess it kinda goes along with the area. Nostalgia is very strong here to begin with! They just had a big protest yesterday when one of the builders tore down a turn of the century mansion. And there's plenty more old cars... I just have to catch them out & have my camera with me!
