In some ways I am very much a girl. I like my nails to look pretty and I absolutely love wearing dresses and cute girly shoes. But on the other hand, I still have a lot of “tom boy” in me. Growing up, I always preferred playing with cool cars over Barbie dolls. Dolls were boring…they just sat there. Cars had wheels and they could go! I’ve also always been drawn to the artistry of car designs…the lines…curves…paint colors…chrome wheels. To me vehicles really are works of art. I am particularly drawn to cars made in the 60’s which makes sense as I was born in that decade. These cars were what I saw the most in my formative years. They left an imprint of what cars were meant to look like. These two sexy beauties were “chance” shots as I was going about my life….parked in parking lots just waiting for me to discover them. 🙂

You could have a blast shooting at a car show!
It’s on the bucket list if a good one comes to town…but I know some vintage car owners are funny about you taking artsy pictures of their cars…they know there is money to be made and they get funky about it…so it’s always a treat to find one without it’s owner….I keep a camera in my purse at all times! 🙂

What fun! I like the colors and patterns in these images.
Thank you Priya!
My dad still has his maroon colored 67 mustang. He bought it when he first joined the Canadian Air Force. I remember arguing over who would have to sit on the hump in the back seat. He loves that car!
Great post and shots by the way!
Thanks Laura…funny that….I always had a thing for old mustangs…particularly those years…65…67…I always wanted one…but never got one. Then nearly 12 years ago I met a man from Match.com for an Indian dinner. He got there first and was waiting inside. I had no clue what kinda car he drove, but I saw this shiny red 65 Mustang in the parking lot….I was drooling on my way in. Had a fantastic date! On our way out, I pointed to the Mustang and said…if that’s yours, I will marry you. He busted out laughing…it was his car. We just celebrated 10 years married in January. 🙂
hahaha That’s awesome!! What a great story! You should do a blog post…
My high school mascot was the Impalas, and people always asked “the car?” I just told them yes instead of explaining that there is this kind of African antelope… Plus a Chevy SS would be much cooler
I dont blame you….an African antelope sounds kinda lame….LOL
