“1960”

Bringing us back once again to the 2013 Motor Muster in Dearborn Michigan!

I must say that the Motor Muster is a real must( no pun intended ) for car lovers, and history buffs alike. There’s so much to be found across the many acres that envelope this annual car show.

In my last post I brought you some memorabilia from the 1950’s including the Brownie Hawkeye camera. In this post we have a full front and left side view of the beautiful 1960 Buick Le Sabre in blue with assorted things from around that time period laid out neatly on a blanket in front of the car.

Unlike my last post which focused mainly on the camera and magazine with very little of the 1955 Jaguar associated with it. This image brings you the full scene. Luckily for me, this little ensemble also included a camera from around the same time period a Kodak Duaflex III, which actually went out of production in 1960.

What I love so much about this is the feeling of nostalgia. Memories that take me back to a different time and place. That’s something that is a wonderful feeling. I feel that preserving and restoring vintage or classic cars, buildings, homes, structures, signs, cameras, etc. is an important part of sharing the past with future generations to come.

Of course preserving the land, forests, oceans, lakes, and……well you get the idea. Taking care of the whole world is another even more important trust on mankind, and therefore will have to remain a topic for another post, or better yet many posts!!

I hope you enjoy today’s image. Let me know if you’ve ever had the opportunity to drive or own a 1960 Buick Le Sabre, or if you have a Duaflex I, II, III, or even a IV camera in your vintage camera collection, maybe you even have photos that were taken with it! I’d love to see those! 🙂

I’ll be posting more images from the Motor Muster in future posts. But for now:

Have a great week everyone!!

  1. This takes me back to my early, early childhood. When I was three or four my parents owned a pale yellow Chevy Corvair. If I remember correctly, I believe the engine was in the “trunk” instead of under the hood. Life was much simpler then. Thanks for the “walk down memory lane!” Also, very nice photo 🙂 I need to attend a few car shows – I’m really enjoying this series!!
