1965 Ford Mustang GT 5.0 Restomod

Photos from a studio shoot back in 2005 of a restomod 1965 Ford Mustang hardtop. I have no recollection of this shoot and its owner.

This is a very cool car, with a 5.0-liter Ford V-8 installed, an updated interior, and up-sized rolling stock that doesn't overwhelm the car.

WP Chrysler Museum Visit 2001

With the announcement that FCA will be housing the Chrysler historic collection at the former Viper Conner Avenue Plant in Detroit, I found a CD backup disc of my 2001 visit to the WP Chrysler Museum in Auburn Hills, Michigan. (I think they were taken after the 2001 Chrysler What's New new vehicle program at the Chelsea Proving Grounds west of Detroit.)

Looking at the photos it seems that I didn't shoot every car. There are two groups of photos, most were taken in the public exhibit area while others were taken in a basement storage garage. At the time I was surprised to see several Jeeps in the basement as well as an AMX. What I didn't see is the 1902 Rambler, which will be the oldest vehicle in the collection displayed in the Conor Avenue facility. The groundbreaking 1993 Jeep Grand Cherokee is displayed on the main public display area.

According to the EXIF info embedded in the images, these images were shot with my camera at the time, a Nikon 990 CoolPix point and shoot so these images are not the resolution of even contemporary smartphone images. In fact, they are uncompressed 1MB images straight from the camera. Still, most seem to be sharp and crisp and I believe they can be scaled up to 4000-pixels wide from the native 2048-pixels wide.

2017 La Jolla Concours d√Člegance

2017 edition of the La Jolla Concours d√Člegance.

Packard was the featured marque this year and the featured car was General Lyons' 1934 Packard Runabout Speedster in a vibrant shade of blue. Try to imagine being wealthy enough to own such a car as the world was still feeling the effects of the Great Depression.

The Best of Show winner was the 1921 Duesenberg A Dual-Cowl Phaeton entered by Ron and Sandy Hansen, resplendent in yellow. The best prewar winner was Valerie and Aaron Weiss' 1936 Mercedes-Benz 290 Cabriolet A, fresh from its class win at Amelia Island. The top prize of the postwar cars and winner of the Ferrari class was the 1963 Ferrari 400 Superamerica entered by Donnie Crevier and Larry Alderson.

I had several personal favorites that stood out in the great field, two of note were the 1948 Packard 2270 limousine entered by Richard Walworth which featured ramp-up wheel chair access. My second favorite was the 1966 Peugeot 404 coupe owned by Greg and Margie Millard that took second place in the Pininfarina-bodied class, beating several Italian exotics.

Two Porsches caught my eye, the first being a highly original 1951 Porsche Pre-A coupe owned by Wayne and Nancy Baker. The other was not part of the concours iteself, rather it was a full-electric powered 1973 Porsche 911 Targa displayed by local San Diego firm Zelectric.

My favorite photo? A little girl playing with the sign in front of Skeets Dunn's 1951 Alfa Romeo 1900 coupe.
