Vintage Motorcycles and Cars
I am a huge old car buff. When I was in high school the crowd I ran around with drove, built, and street raced cars like Camaros, Mustangs, and anything else with a big motor. Plus my dad always had some old car, or motorcycle rebuild going on, and now my brother carries that tradition on.
Then there is the fact that for most of my driving life, since I was 16, I have owned a motorcycle of some kind. Al and I had Harley’s until about 5 years ago, and we had so much fun riding. So when I heard that a custom vintage bike builder here was having a vintage motorcycle and car show, I was all about going. Now of course, it’s all about the photo op, and I was not disappointed.
There were several old Indian Motorcycles. Love them!! And this fender ornament was certainly a favorite.
I created this photo out of several images. The ornament, a photo of a gas tank, and a couple of textures layers.
Even the horns on the vintage Indian motorcycles had style.
Check out this old Triumph. The belt drive is a separate wheel, and the belt is made from riveted together canvas pieces. I can’t even imagine.
This tire was amazing too. Those are leather patches in the tire.
There was a display of old oil cans. I love stuff like this.
Down the street there was a car show going on too, so we headed there to see what we could see.
For me this was all about textures, angles, and of course the cool cars.
The photo prompt this week for the Dogwood 52 is Artistic Green. This Charger was the perfect example of artistic green.
It was a fun day, and I’m so glad we went.
