Ford Model A by yankeedog Ford Model A by yankeedog
Taken at the the Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix car show at Market Square in Downtown Pittsburgh. If you are anywhere near Pittsburgh this weekend, July 24th & 25th, go the the race at Schenley Park, if you enjoy vintage cars, you will not be disappointed and it's FREE, just a small fee for parking, but the race and car show is free to the public!

Wow - that is beautiful! There's just something about a Model A's fenders, lights, vents and chrome that makes the reflections come alive!
Great shot - the vignette really suits this. :)

Thanks! I really hate car shows because there are always too many people around to get a good shot, so what I've been doing is to try to get the shot I want and then doing a very tight clipping path in PhotoShop on the car, pasting it on to a new layer and blurring the background, it give it a nice feel and really puts all the focus on the car. It's time consuming, but well worth the effort.

I would know Jim, but I saw a Hot Rod one that I took pictures of a while back that I wouldn't mind having.

The DOF was done in photoshop by drawing a clipping path around the car, pasting it onto its own layer and then blurring the background and the I added a Lomo/Holga type border and edge. I haven't mastered the DOF yet with the new camera, but I'm working on it. There is a portrait setting that I was reading about that claims to do it, but I haven't tried it yet, maybe at the race & car show this weekend! :-)

For my senior prom, my date's grandfather drove us to the event in his fully-restored 1929 Model A Ford. We stole the show from all the popular clique kids who showed up in Lincoln Town Car limousines and Bimmers.

See, now that is cool! When my wife and I go married, I rented a two tone, champagne & Salmon Bentley for our limo, it was pretty nice. I saw locally where one of the Limo places was offering different classic cars for events.

That's pretty cool. I wanted to do something like that for my wedding, but there weren't any classic cars in Duluth whose owners would have been willing to drive it on salty, Minnesota roads in February after dark. I was going to whisk her away in my 1994 Lincoln Mark VIII, but that got destroyed in a crash in Oklahoma 3 days before the wedding...so...I whisked her away from the wedding in a rented white F150 crew cab...not quite the same...

I'll have to look for some photos of the Bentley, it had belonged to Dolly Parton.

The Driver told us on the way to the reception that it was Dolly's car.

Dolly always says: "It takes a lot of money to look this cheap"!
