Scottsdale has a classic car dealership, Discover Classic Cars, and they were kind enough to let me take a few photos of their extensive inventory of classic cars, extending back at least into the 20s and up through the muscle cars of the 70s. I wasn't comfortable spending a lot of time on the lot, as I did not want to interfere with their business operation. In addition, it had rained recently, so the normally sparkling car bodies had water spots on some of their surfaces, and I was not going to clean them off. I did get some OK shots, however. As usual, I found myself taking photos of just parts of cars, as in this shot.
I did manage to photograph the whole car in this case. Not sure of the make. Handsome, though.
I knew the following to be a Ford,
because of its radiator.
Don't know about the following car, but I did like the detailing.
I also liked that I was able to capture the reflection of one muscle car in the side panel of another in the following.
But the car that I liked the best was a 1940 Ford coupe sporting lines created at the height of the art deco period. It was gorgeous and was in great condition.
Loved the side mirrors. Here is a closeup of the grille.
This shot also worked well as a B&W.
Finally, there is the shot of the back quarter section that I positioned at the top of this post to catch the viewer's attention. This is really a simple shot, with just a few lines and a taillight to identify it. Normally, I get concerned with areas in a photo that are completely dark. However, here the dark areas on the right sides of the trunk and the fender actually serve to provide depth to the shot.
