It’s been a busy week for me shooting. I haven’t had much time to update my blog. You may know I like to find cars that have been nurtured and cherished by their owners for a long time and here are 7 from the last week.
- This 1963 Ford was bought new by Sharon’s parents and given to her as a Sweet Sixteen car.
- Ralph bought this Royal Mist Blue 1966 Olds 4-4-2 right after high school and took his wife to the prom in it. Early on he used it as a drag race car and then as a daily driver. It won awards at the World of Wheels in the 70s, 80s and 90s.
- Larry bought his blue 1975 Chevrolet Caprice Classic convertible new in 1975; it’s never been wrecked. There are 60k miles but now he only drives it 500 miles a year.
- I’ve known Paul’s twin Karl (1969 Mustang) for a while and just learned Paul has owned the MG for 35 years. The very good-natured Carl & Paul were singing “One Is The Loneliest Number” along with the band and they can thank me for not having recorded that performance.
- Ron has had the red ’59 Caddy for 25 years. I met him when he had driven his ’59 Bonneville convertible and didn’t realize this Cadillac was his until I recognized him as the driver from a shot at Westchester. He restored it twice
- Ed bought this 1947 Chrysler New Yorker 22 years ago.
- I met Jim’s (1930 Ford) brother Gary this year and saw his 1955 Ford Customline that he found in a garage near Comiskey Park 17 years ago.
