Cars, Cars, and more Cars!









This past Saturday I had the opportunity of photographing some of the world's rarest automobiles at the LeMay auto show in Parkland, Washington. Make sure you click on each photo for a larger, more detailed view.

Way cool, David! Too bad current automotive design is not as beautiful. I get so tired of seeing Tupperware on wheels... all the plastic vehicles with little or no design or sculptural lines. Bah, humbug.

Dave, these photos are terrific; I love the distorted perspective that enhances the beauty of the detail in the design -- fins, grills, and such. Thanks for sharing.

Very cool. I wonder if these cars are as comfortable as today's cars. They definitely look roomy.
