Apart from it being a good picture of the Alpine, the people have that classic car meet pose, and the use of the limited depth of field to separate it from the background modernity is great.

^^FrozenInTime, that is a super sweet shot of the Alpine. The M10 40mm f1.2 combination brings it all together; of course it’d be nothing without you.

All the best,
Mike

Yes loving the 40/1.2 ; the view, rendering and the freedom of carrying just one compact fast lens.

I guess that red mid-1990s 6th gen Toyota Celica is not old enough for this thread?

I have to say I was concentrating more upon the Evoque and the Nissan Note! I can live with the Celica though!

That car certainly benefits from the Panoramic adapter Dourbalister! I like the angle, it makes it appear even longer.

Thanks, Charles! The panoramic format and wide angle lens does distort size a bit, but make no mistake, that car is a huge boat!

It sure is! I had one of the same but a 4-door hardtop, in two-tone pink! Push-button transmission selector! It was a good car...

I kinda wish I had color film loaded in one the cameras I had with me, because this one was pink (with white accents), too!

The "Bullitt" Mustang that Steve McQueen drove in the 1968 movie "Bullitt." Long thought to be lost, it resurfaced a few years back. A pic on Ferrania P30. Canon F-1.

You did “show me a nice old car”, so well within the spirit, seems like.
Having driven a real Mini Cooper back in the day, of around this vintage, and a few of the new (sort of bloated) German ones, I’d much rather have this one, as they’re more fun. Bonkers.

Fun seems to be the missing ingredient in a lot of things these days. CPU's make them very wonderful but too complex and, worse still, bland these days.


I just wish I could afford/justify buying a restored version of some of the cars I've owned over the last 50 years...

Old car in Uppsala, Sweden, July 2019.
Canon EOS 30D, EF 50mm/1.8 at 1/250 sec, f/10 and ISO 100.
Should probably have panned the car rather than getting the background sharp..

Speaking of CPUs, this Mercedes-Benz 240D is supposedly the best car for a zombie apocalypse. According to this article, it doesn't require any electronics to run, not even spark plugs to ignite the fuel. The door locks are powered by a mechanical vacuum system, and even the oil-pressure gauge is mechanical. A truly "analog" car in a digital age!

Mercedes-Benz 240D W123.123 (1978-1985).

Nikon FM2n, Nikkor-S Auto 55mm f/1.2, ORWO N74+, developed in LegacyPro L110 at 1:31 for 6.5 minutes.

Just good old fashioned electrical glow plugs to get it started.

Somewhere in Morocco is a taxi driver who has a W115 240D that is on about 3 million KMs. Those engines can last for ever, but with their very low speed, the journeys feel the same way.

Very nice picture Dourbalister. I love those things with a passion, but despite my love of black and white, I love the 70s colour options so much one of my little games is guessing the colour and the exact colour code, which you can't do from B&W.

Thanks, Charles! I found this one parked at the end of my street, but I'm not sure if it's there all the time. Maybe if the stars align and I happen to have color film loaded in one of my cameras, I'll take a color version. For your enjoyment, of course!

That would be most kind! I suspect it's a metallic, possibly astral silver or silver blue, but it's a fools errand from black and white!
