Cruisers II and NNWM-2K15 Update

 NNWM-2K15 Update:

Another chapter of my NNWM-2K15. I’m still writing chapter 36, but here comes Chapter 32.

The next post will contain Chapter 32 of the 2015 NaNoWriMo work-in-progress, and it will go up immediately after this post goes live. It’s password protected. Since it’s been a while, click HERE for the previous stuff.

Please, don’t ask for a password thinking it will make me feel good. Especially, don’t ask unless you’ve read the first few chapters and know that you are interested in reading more. Unless you intend to read it, don’t ask. I will not feel hurt, I will not cry myself to sleep, I will not hate anyone who chooses not to read my effort. I will, however, get a little miffed if I get asked for passwords by a bunch of people, and then only my regular four or five readers read the stuff.

Cruisers Update II:

Continuing with my late reporting on the June 14, 2015, Tri-Lakes Vintage Car show.

Here it is again, the AMC S/C Hurst Rambler Scrambler . . .

By the way, there is a SmugMug Gallery (HERE) for this, past, and future posts about this show. That’s right . . . I’m not posting all 700 photos in this post. Also, you can click on the photos to open a larger version in a separate tab or window. Go ahead; try it.

This is the front of the 1951 Ford Tudor Sedan Custom first seen in the previous post.

And this is the First Generation Cougar also seen in the last post . . .

This next car is a 1930 Ford Sedan (there are more photos later on – I’m showing the photos in the order I snapped them).

14JUNE2015 Tri-Lakes Car Show

Obviously, it had some word done since then.

Next up . . . a 1967 Camaro RS-SS . . .

14JUNE2015 Tri-Lakes Car Show

I wanted to appear as if I gave a rat’s ass about what kind of engine was in the thing, so I snapped a few photos. Looks like tubes and stuff.

14JUNE2015 Tri-Lakes Car Show

This next photo shows more of the red thing in there. I overheard a few people speak in awe of it, so I snapped a photo.

14JUNE2015 Tri-Lakes Car Show

I needed to cleanse my eyes of the jumbled mess of stuff I just saw, so I stepped back to the Pontiac Catalina . . .

14JUNE2015 Tri-Lakes Car Show

This next one is a Chevrolet, but I could be massively wrong. I have no pictures of the name or emblems . . .

14JUNE2015 Tri-Lakes Car Show

. . . but I did take a photo of the “let me compensate for my shortcomings” engine.

14JUNE2015 Tri-Lakes Car Show

There were a number of Mustangs on display. I have the years for some of them, but not all. Like, for instance, this one.

14JUNE2015 Tri-Lakes Car Show

Here’s a few more photos of the 1930 Ford Sedan. (Note: for the grammarians gnashing their teeth in dismay, I know that the contraction “here’s” — for “here is” — is the incorrect verb form for “a few more photos”. Sue me.)

I’m not sure those are historically correct tires . . .

I also got a few more photos of the RS-SS 1976 Camaro . . .

14JUNE2015 Tri-Lakes Car Show

14JUNE2015 Tri-Lakes Car Show

Look at all that leg room and that killer steering wheel. No, really . . . a killer steering wheel, as in “caving your chest in”.

For the AMC fans . . . first up, a 1970 AMC AMX.

14JUNE2015 Tri-Lakes Car Show

Then, another view of the 1969 AMC Javelin.

14JUNE2015 Tri-Lakes Car Show

I’m ending this post with a look at the 1956 Chevrolet Bel Air 2-Door Hardtop.

It’s unfortunate that the portable toilet was positioned directly behind the car. Oh, well.

I wanted a shot of the emblem and hood ornament, so . . .

14JUNE2015 Tri-Lakes Car Show

I liked the shot, but did not like the background power lines and power lines pole. In a rare moment of anger against the world conspiring against me producing a nice photograph, I took to Photoshop. While I was at it, I cleaned up the dust spots on the paint job, and ran it through a couple of post-processing passes to get this . . .

14JUNE2015 Tri-Lakes Car Show

Then, I thought I should try a B&W conversion . . .

14JUNE2015 Tri-Lakes Car Show

Finally, another shot of the car, this time from behind . . . also showing the people who were milling about and interfering with my photo shoot.

14JUNE2015 Tri-Lakes Car Show

That’s it. This post has ended . . . except for the stuff below.

    Your post processing of the hood ornament is excellent. That’s a great shot . . . which makes me wonder at the artsy results you’d get using filters on those fancy cars . . . um, probably amazing!
