The Tech Stuff – - – Shot with a Canon G11 a compact camera – RAW – Wide-Angle Lens (6mm) – Tidy’d up with me old chum Photochop – 14 Brick Masons to erect the wall – anti-gravity drive to make the water stains run Up the wall – and a whole mob of lights and reflectors ~:0)
The Story – - – Okay – so for years ol’what’shername and me been saying – “How come auto-manufacturers don’t make cars that look like something – you know – like the Classic Cars did?” ~:0)
Well they did make some cars that looked like something – Plymouth came out with the Prowler for a time – they’d still be making them if it had proven profitable – like I tell me students – “If ya not makin’ money on a product – U can’t keep selling it!” Chevy made the SSR – a great looking Truck – or was it a truck? It was more of a sporty convertible with a big empty space in the back – not really that big ~:0)
Chevrolet also made a – car? – that resembles a panel-van of some yonks back and Chrysler made some kind of Sedan-Delivery looking car ( tiny inside ) – Point is – “Detroit” gave a shot at making some – Different – Hot Rod type cars and not as big a hit as they had hoped. The ol’ JuJu and I liked those cars – woulda bought an SSR but for one thing – – – priced out of our range (due to recent events in the world – Ha!)
That must have something to do with the growth of the Rat Rod Subculture of Hot Rodding and Custom Cars – they’re more affordable! Just missed a Rat Rod in Warsaw N.Y. on eBay recently me own self – out bid again – I’m still plugging at it though – got m’ eye on a 47 Ford Pick-Up in Illinois – need a motor rebuild though – It’s aways about the money isn’t it ~:0) Got to Sell more Pix so I can manage a new old ride – something that ol’what’shername will feel like it looks like something when we’re out cruising’ in it. Yeh! Thas the ticket – something ol’ Bogie woulda liked – something classic-cool – – – well as long as it’s a truck that is – Ha! ~:0) VivaChas!
