1957 pontiac star chief

well, it's a new year, but i'm still perusing last year's pics. i haven't been to a car show since the beginning of december...family obligations, rain or cold keeping cars away, or just holiday cancellations. i'll be going bat's ass soon, if i can't get out and take some shots. gonna have to go shoot flowers or something. maybe i should pick another obsession for this year. i think it's supposed to rain tomorrow. shit. tomorrow is another day...

this one was from the show that also was attended by the infamous richard. no, not this car...i wouldn't dare share one of his precious baby. nuff said of you, richard. be gone with you. we are not amused.

there were actually two of these pontiac star chiefs that evening. probably from the same club. this pretty purpley one, and i think the other was green, but unfortunately didn't get a picture of that one – every bit as purrty, but bad location. the owner and some other guy were sitting at this end for quite a while, and seemed disinclined to move, so i thought i'd only get the front with them in the shot. they weren't in their seats the next circuit around the show, so was able to catch this shot. i do love when they got something goin' on in the back, don't you?
