Vehicle Details – CFFC
As promised, during this week of my book launch, I’m going to go easy on the words in my regular posts. I do have an important announcement for Thursday Doors participants (see below). Today’s post is coming in on the tail end of Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge. Here’s what Cee says about this challenge:
“This week our topic is celebrating Vehicle Details (paint job, headlights, engines, grills, seats, wheels, etc). Have fun. Most all of you know, I just adore taking photos vehicles, new or vintage.”
Now, before drifting into the gallery of vehicles I have gathered, let’s get that that announcement out of the way. As many of you know, Cee offers several photo challenges each week. On Thursdays, she kicks off her Black and White Photo Challenge. This challenge is topic related and the next topic (Thursday 6/23 – Wednesday 6/29) is Doors and Drawers. So, if you want to double-dip with your photos, save a few black and white ones for Cee’s challenge. Of course, you can include them in your Thursday Doors post.

Here in Connecticut, most people have to choose between the Yankees and the Red Sox – This guy seems secure in his choice.

We saw this cool transporter at the NHRA (Drag races) in Englishtown, New Jersey
I follow NHRA racing, and Tim Wilkerson is my favorite driver. This was his car many years ago.
This might look like a Studebaker, but all of the body details (grill, vents, headlights) are painted on.
Inside the Studebaker, again, all the details – including the copy of National Dragster on the floor – are pained on.
My good friend David made this model Ford Shelby GT for me.
When I was working, I used to see this guy at Dunkin Donuts. I wished my job required a crane.
STAGED – Our daughter Faith donated he car to be used in rescue training for a local fire department.
The only time my Triumph Spitfire had a proper passenger. That’s David in the passenger seat.
