I love these old car emblems…

Robert and I were on a road trip, traveling round Montana, visiting antique shops, when he spotted a car lot full of vintage cars. While he roamed about enjoying his favorite past time, I enjoyed the old cars also!

There are so many interesting textures, patterns, and designs in an old car lot.

I shot this near Four Corners, at Belgrade, (first photo taken with my new Tamron lens!) Montana in a collector’s car lot.

I was inspired by the color I saw in this when the light shone through it, I also love old things.

This is the first time I captured an old hood ornament, and now I’m hooked! Photo is “AS IS”.

Enjoying what Montana has to offer, greatly influences my work. Rodeos, horses, mountains, all of this plays a part in what I create. I lived here in Montana, taking care of cattle and horses on the ranch until I retired a few years ago.

I now spend my time recreating in Montana, and creating photos and paintings from what I see here in this state.

    I love it!! I remember our Pontiac woodie wagon. It didn’t have this great ornament, though. When it stopped, you’d have to hit the alternator with your shoe if the needle didn’t go back to zero.

  • I once had a car I had to hit the alternator like that, how funny! The things we used to do….:)
