Thematic Photographic 171 - Classic
They don't make them like they used to
London, ON, June 2011
This is probably the loudest vehicle I've ever heard. Since it's a convertible, I'm guessing the guy who owns it has probably suffered hearing damage by now. I'm also pretty sure as it slowly cruised through the parking lot, I could see the roiled air behind it, likely a byproduct of incomplete combustion and fuel "economy" that probably never managed to scrape its way out of single digits.
None of that matters a whit, of course, as I'm sure everyone who saw the car that day probably wished they owned it. Classic cars will do that to even the most green of anti-motorheads. They just have a presence about them that newer vehicles - appliances, really - don't.
Your turn: Thematic celebrates all things classic this week. Cars, architecture, people, whatever. If you think it qualifies as classic, shoot it and share it on your blog. Then leave a comment here letting us know where to find it. Visit other participants and generally share the photographic joy. We'll be doing the classic thing all week.
