Beautiful, the subjects and the images.  Never was was into cars except on the "line" level.  I liked the lines of X series Jags and touring cars from the early fifties...then all the beauties like seen above...but my heart still belongs to Cords and Auburns. Love

these were the the two eras of art in auto design, everything else (for the most part) has been a race to mediocrity.

' those gorgeous chrome lines! ' --- music to my ears ! Yvette :) 
You know - I'm not sure why - but here on DA - these classic cars 
do not seem to get their fair share of the feelings and attention we both share . 
 Not everybody I've spoken with appreciates this era and it's cars .

Personally I think they belong in the finest Art museums - others 'might' prefer the scrap heap ! :lol: 

 ~  Some see the 'heavy chrome ' as overkill 
and ugly --and of course that is their right being that all art is subjective. 
 ~ When I question my own bias - because of the element of nostalgia - I still think
that is just the beauty I see in these metal machines that endlessly fascinates me .
 ~ When I go to the occasional car show - it's not really about the obligatory 'Elvis clone' and his
band - playing away -- or talking about the mechanical aspects of these cars with the owners ( I don't have that knowledge )
Mainly I just love the aesthetic aspects of these vehicles. 
 - Even better is to see one on the street in modern traffic - they certainly stand out ! - Making all surrounding modern 
cars seem so drab and all looking like clones of the same design .
~  Yet many do not see it that way  - that is why I made this journal - to try to show these automobiles
in their best light. But I also would welcome the opinions of those that see things differently ! 
( I'm just curious ) ---------------------  by the way - thanks for the comment :D

I try to go every year to our mid-May downtown American Graffiti car show, just to walk around and admire. I rarely take photos anymore (too many people). What makes these classics a work of art is not only the original design, but also the love and care (not to mention beaucoup bucks) that their owners put into them.

Yes - I propose a theme song for all those men and woman who keep those cars preserved and shiny ! --we can call it - 'The Classic Car Preservation Society'
