At the 2018 New Mexico International Auto Show, there really was only one star, and there was not even a close second -- it was the 2017 Ford GT. Placed right inside the main entrance to the entire exhibit space in the Albuquerque Convention Center, there was the Ford GT in a beautiful silver-gray color. I had not seen it in person before of course, as it is a very rare car and the limited run is still being produced. In photos I had not cared for the frog-like appearance of the front fascia on this supercar. It looks much better in person, and the 3/4 view, as pictured above, revealing the extreme aero and duct work make for a truly stunning appearance. If you dare park a Ford GT on the street, it will attract massive amounts of attention!Read More
I really like to photograph cars, but I very rarely get to do it on purpose. I had no idea a classic car show was going on just a few miles from my Saint Petersburg home until I happened upon it as I was leaving a meeting about an upcoming HDR gallery exhibition. I was very glad I did though. There were some real beauties at the show, but I focused on the Ford Cobras and a 1963 Chevrolet Corvette split window.
Lately I have been thinking about how only old things have any value. For cars, to me, it is absolutely true. These classics are beloved works of art. I think of the cars rolling off robotic assembly lines today and think, how many will be in car shows 40 years from now? Probably not any.
The 1963 Chevrolet Corvette split window is one of the all-time classics and a rarity. It's a truly beautiful car with so much character that one cannot even compare it to any car of today, not even another Corvette.
I just hope there are enough of these classic cars in good condition still around by the time I can afford one of them. What a feeling it must be to cruise down the street in a piece of motoring history!
If you have a classic car, get it professionally photographed today!
