Each and every car owner is very proud of their vehicle and of all the work that they have put into restoring, building and maintaining them. There was a whole lot of buffing going on with some of these vehicles and when the light hit chrome just right it was blinding. It still amazes me to this day but how do they get those engines so fantastically clean and shiny? Not a speck of dust, oil, grime or anything to be found unless of course it was one of the autos that was listed as everything in it’s original shape.
This Chevy caught my eye from across the street because it was my favorite color – purple. It’s owner was quite animated and affable; making the occasional joke about how he looked when he began to restore the car and how he looks now; he had hair then and is bald now. When he saw me standing in front of the car trying to get some shots he volunteered to close the hood so that I could see the beautiful design. Another of his little jokes was that the gear shift knob is the face he makes sometimes but I have forgotten the punchline of when and why.
