There’s something beautiful about a framed image hanging serenely on a wall. We’re extremely proud of our sustainably sourced frames and believe there’s really no better way to enhance a stunning photograph. We’re pleased as punch to say they’ve adorned galleries and homes from London to Los Angeles.
Art comes in many shapes and sizes, and our framed prints are built to fit each of them. The final dimensions will depend on the image you choose, but to give you an idea here are the most common photographic sizes:
Canon 5D Mark 2, 24-105mm 1:4 lensPhotoshop CS6
car, automobile, antique, fifties, classic, pontiac, two tone, sunset, yellow, silver
The name’s Flyrod. American car culture is my thing. If it rolls, roars, or rumbles I’m into it. Statistics and facts aren’t my gig. My mission is to track down and capture the infamous rides that make up pop culture, and to tell their stories.
WHEN CARS COULD FLY
There once was a time when cars could flyA time when style really caught your eye
It was the nineteen fifties when Ike was in chargeWhen a post-war America yearned to live large
These are the models we all now revereThe ones that got longer and bigger each year
The race was on to conquer spaceAnd automobiles were setting the pace
Sleek jet airplanes adorned every hoodThey layed on the chrome wherever they could
Rocket engine taillights flashed so brightStep on the gas and let her take flight
Big bumper guards that looked like bulletsAnd that big V-8 engine sure could pull it
Giant fins adorned the rear fenderLike rocket ships in all their splendor
Big whitewall tires to smooth out the rideA two-tone paint job shown off with pride
Style was the thing that made people boastImpressing the neighbors mattered the most
You might have to build a bigger garageKeeping-up the image that was just a mirage
Drive one of these and they’ll think you are richIt was all part of the dealers sales pitch
The happiness factor was kind of short rangeBecause every year the styles would change
It seams crazy now, but I wouldn’t lieThose were the day when cars could fly

Love it! Those truly were the days……
Thanks Dot. Let’s go for a spin.
Yep, those were the days! Another gem!
Thanks Monnie. Let’s go for a spin.
What a great looking looking Bonneville, you do it proud. Pontiac what should, could, will never be the muscle/sport division of GM.
Well said John. Thanks
Superb image, what an awesome car. Love the verse as well.
So very cool I just love this angle.
Thanks Donna, always appreciated.
Oh wow you’re a writer! That website is really amazing. Really enjoyed the poem too
I have a soft spot for 58 Bonnies. This one looks like it has all the goodies. $ stars, chrome jet accent, foe roof vent and chrome around and in the lights. She looks so good in that monochrome gold background. The poem rings true to the era. Excellent work Jim.
I hear you Paul. I’ve only seen a couple of these in the passed two years so I guess they are rare. I made it a two tone to make it look more stock. This one was nicely restored but they took of lettering and some small chrome details to make it look cleaner, and it has a modern paint color. Big mistake! You can’t improve on the original design of cars like this. It just kills their appeal as far as I’m concerned. Thanks for weighing in.
Thanks Larry, always appreciated.
Great title and presentation! Beautiful car, sky, clouds!
Thanks Angie, always appreciated.
