“2015 Corvette Stingray Z06”

For all you Corvette lovers out there…….The cool new 2015 Corvette Stingray Z06 Supercar! Straight from the 2014 Detroit NAIAS.

This is the only supercar that delivers over 600 horsepower and has a choice of either a 7 speed manual, or an all new track certified 8 speed paddle-shift automatic transmission! To me, that’s pretty cool!

It is powered by an LT4 supercharged 6.2 aluminum V8 engine which delivers at least 625 horsepower with 635 lb-ft of torque!

This car is designed for downforce. Nearly every exterior change on the 2015 Z06 serves a functional purpose from the wider flare fenders, wider tires and wheels to the larger vents to provide more cooling air to the engine!

Oh, and something I really love is the removable carbon-fiber roof panel, allowing for an open roof, while enjoying the speed on the road!!

The 2015 Corvette Stingray Z06 has all this and so much more! Enjoy!

“Rockin the Terraplane”

This post is a really simple one. I have an image of a really cool Terraplane. Don’t ask me the year, for I haven’t a clue! Well maybe a 1935. Feel free to let me know! 🙂

This baby is gorgeous Ruby Red!! I processed it first in color, then again in B&W using Nik Silver Efex Pro.
I tend towards the color version, but I do like the way it processed in the monochrome also!

Your mission should you chose to accept is to………………let me know which image you prefer and why. 🙂

“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!!
