Week 16, car show

The first car show of the season and I was there with my Olympus OM-2n, 2 rolls of expired (1999) Fuji Super-G 400 and a roll of Ektar.  I started with the Ektar but because of pilot error, I ended up taking 36 shots of nothing.  It was a very strange car show in that there was a mix of late-model, lightly modified cars, many in rather poor shape, plus a few classic American, European and Japanese cars.  Most organized car shows have sections, all the pre-WWII cars here, post-war to 60s here, Muscle cars over there, imports over yonder, etc.  This show had cars parked however the car arrived.  So you could be looking at 1970s muscle car parked next to a Infiniti that looked bone-stock except some different rims.

My own preference are classic British cars, but there were none that I saw.  Surprising given the size of the show.  But in general I like most pre-1980 cars, so I focused on those.

Depending on the weather and time, I’ll probably do some random shots with one of my older cameras for the next week.  Maybe my Beltica, a 35mm rangefinder from Dresden.

  1. Nice stuff. Cool mix of cars and car people. Too bad about the wasted Ektar.

    One of my first cars was a 67 Triumph GT6. A serious piece of shit, but I loved it for the few days it actually ran.

    • Thanks! My first car was a 69 Triumph TR6. Still have it (needs a full resto). The Ektar I just didn’t connect it correctly to the take-up spool, so it was 36 shots on the same section of film. I was able to roll it up and transfer to my home roll canisters, so I might be able to save most of it.
