    Gee Jim, it sure would look nice next to the wifes 38 Buick Special Business Coupe..it's just not at the house right now. She has a guy looking at it to do restoration on it...but what a grand old car. Even has a clock and radio in it.

    Nice pictures, makes me want to find some of these old lens and give them a chance to show their stuff....will have to keep my eyes open.

    Yep, 16 years ago. It hasn't run in 10 or 12 but we can fix that.

    Oh a '38 Buick is very nice. Whole different class.

    Cool!

    If I had the optotunity to buy my 1st car I'd jump at it! The 2nd was an interum step, the 3rd we just sold recently! I do have a '70 car (I bought in '94) that my boys (6 & 3) think is theirs! They might be lucky and it still be around when they have licences (although we have power-to-weight laws that don't allow them to drive it until they have a full licence... and extra 3 years). A mate's brother had a mid 50's Customline when we were young... we thought it was the ant's pants!

    Honestly, I sat here, mesmerized by these photos - I love your composition and exposure of the first shot. The vignetting does not bother me in this case. And imagining you (not that I have a clue of what you look like ) with a LF rig and those old lenses in that settign just seemed like something worth seeing - truly timeless. Much like, by the look of it, those "little" lenses! Made my evening!

    Thanks all for kind thoughts. Gnashings, yes, that's why I can ignore the signs, me and my camera are so decrepit that we simply blend right in

    Perhaps I am not really that mad (relatively speaking) still using Voigtlander Petzvals. Well done Jim!

    Jim, to me what you are doing and have done is what keeps me interested in photography. The old optics I am sure give thanks to you for giving them another opportunity to perform their magic. Looking forward to more posts
    from you!
