“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. 🙂

“Rockin the Monochrome”

A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to go to a vintage automobile show at Greenfield Village in Dearborn Michigan. It’s called the Motor Muster, a yearly show which brings automobile enthusiasts of every kind together with more cars, motorcycles and other vehicles than you can shake a stick at!!

I have just started to get to these images, so while looking through them at first glance, these two popped out at me, and said MONOCHROME!!

Here we have the wheel and details of a beautiful 1955 Jaguar, and the stunning hood ornament from a Rolls Royce of an unknown year. Unknown to me at least! 😉

I’ll be bringing you more images from the 2013 Motor Muster, next time in color. I have a fun image coming up that also involves a vintage camera.

For now, enjoy these and have a great week ahead to all!!

“Lights Camera Action”

Well my friends,tonight I thought I’d bring us back to the bright lights, the large crowds, and the full fledged action of the Detroit Auto Show (NAIAS)!

For those of you out there that have a love of all things Corvette, muscle cars, fast cars, luxury sports cars, etc. Well here you have a pretty nice perspective of the awesome 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray.

There was a lot of attention that was on this car as in turned around! Cameras were clicking everywhere, lights were coming from all directions, and people were admiring, talking, and going nuts for this brand new Corvette! It made for a pretty wild time!

From this vantage point I think you can get a good idea of both the car itself and the atmosphere surrounding it!!

I hope you enjoyed tonight’s post. If so please feel free to leave me a comment!!

“1903 Ford Model A” 2

As many of you who follow me know. I’ve been working through a mountain of automobile images. I decided to post just one more car image here, then after that it will back to our regularly scheduled programming. No seriously, I’ll get back into more nature images!! I think I’m about Car-d out LOL!! 😉

I did find this car here to be of quite a bit of interest though. A 1903 Ford Model A, in fact the only one still surviving. The details are fantastic, and of course beautifully cared for. Shiny red paint, white tires with red spokes on the wheels. Plus a beautiful brass steering wheel and horn!! Truly a marvel from 110 years ago!!

I hope you enjoy this image, and if you’re a car lover. I have many images of different types of cars and their details on my site. So for now, until the next auto show, or maybe a muscle car show, I think I’ll stick to nature, landscapes, and maybe an abstract here and there!! 😉
