That car almost knocked me off my swivel chair when the picture came up! A superb image.

Neat photo! I just may have to try the monochrome theme soon - I need to learn Photoshop a bit better before attempting it.

Carver said...

That's great! I used to have an old opel. This shot brought pack memories.

Stilig. enkelte ting gjør seg godt i s/h.

Men ser for meg denne som ferrarirød også :-)

Vintage but with charms. Looks like appeared from a spy movie of the same years.
A collection treasure.

Bilar är bilar. Jag gillar det. Måste erkänna att jag lärde mej ngt nytt. Fick googla....Jag har alltid trott att det var två skilda bilmärken med GM som ägare. Kul att lära nytt och bilen passar verkligen i svart/vitt! Hälsningar!

Flott svart-kvitt bilde.

Perfect match tema og motiv!!!

Charlotte said...

ahhh, dette bildet var innmari tøft!!! Likte godt vinkelen du har brukt her.

Ja, litt fælt å si det på denne måten men gleder meg også litt til de små blir litt større så vi kan reise litt mer :)

I bet that car could tell a great tale.

That's a great photo John. I love the front of the car as it make me think of a face (sad face). Contrast and composition spot on.

This is timeless. Great framing! Perfect mono.

Oh my father would love this. Opel is the only car worth driving in his opinion. It wouldn't surprise me if he used to own this particular model too.
This one looks a bit sad though. Needs some cheering up ;-)

Veldig fin fangst på linsa di.
Flott bilde. :)
Minner om barndom og alle bilene til pappa, og alle kjøreturer med dem mellom Sogn og Valdres.
Sjarmerende "vrak" dette. ;)

Fabulous photo as always John... but a heartbreaking one. To see such a solid trooper reduced to rust... *sigh*
