Had spent near to three hours poking around the beautiful classic autos at Shannons and was about to leave, when … the gleaming glistening silky smooth cherry red duco, almost dripping in chrome, of a fully restored 1959 Cadillac appeared in the doorway!

Capturing people being people, and the finer details of four and two wheeled blingy classic automotives – two fave ‘topics’ of imagery :-))

    this is really pretty… i can’t blow it up big enough to see what the little hint of red is in the wheel but i think it adds something to the image

  • Thank you Jill :o))
    Didn’t get time to have a real good look (owner didn’t hang around longer than
    15mins) but I’m guessing that lil bit of red is the lever to pop the skirt off?? :o))

    Zowie!!!

  • LOL!!! Yeah, and the rest!! :-D
    Said to the owner, as he got out of the car, “I was about to go home mate, and then you turn up in this!” He chuckled and grinned a big smile, and let me get some images while he chatted to one of the Shannons’ guys :o)))

    Wow! Excellent… How many of these wound up in the trunk after the tire change!!!! – John

  • Hehehe, I can imagine the novelty would have quickly worn
    off if they’re a b!tch to replace ;o) … Thank you John :o)))

    Awesome Ell! Great shot of some wicked wheels :)

  • Awww, they were seriously cool spinners on this Caddy, bsn, thankyou :o)))
    Every cm of this 6m gal absolutely gleamed in the late afternoon light!
    Would be soooo nervous driving her though were she mine (in my dreams!!) but the young guy who drove her didn’t bat an eyelid backing her out the drive (has a ‘reversing’ beeper/alarm!!) and into the traffic to go home … the Shannons’ guy chuckled at my wolf-whistle as she left! ;o)))
