Cool. I like the soft dated color in these pics too! I had these on my walls "back in the day." Do you have the one of Gene Chan's purple "T" roadster with brass plated wheels, Shannon cones, and hemi engine? He was from the town where I grew up.

Have to dig them out and make a list of the ones I need and my duplicates and maybe do a little trading with somebody here.

The Hot Rod Magazine "Spec Sheet" cards are my all time favorite. Also, my first thought when I saw thread. I managed to put together a complete set and was thrilled.......... I lifted this shot from Google:

Whether it's women or cars, I prefer that vintage soft look as it's so atmospheric. I love Technicolor movies. I've heard that they used to have color advisers on set to determine which colors would work best with the film process. Real life is fuzzy and hazy and soft lit - not see every hair and pore sharp. As for the cars, they look more like art with a softer color printing process. If you really want atmospheric, try watching black and white silent films - something I've been doing lately. It seems like the modern world is stripping all the aura and mystery out of life.

No doubt. As cool as Technicolor film and KodaChrome is, some BnW films simply awesome. Watch "Vampyr", holy crap is that a mood inducer!!

Recently started adding more 50's and early 60's HRM's to my collection.

Never really thought so much about film / camera technology being the reason the pics looked the way they did, I just figured HRM's art editor airbrushed the shit outta the pics to make them that way.

Who took those pics anyway? Rickmann? Bob D'Olivio?

These are great! I agree, there's just something about the old photos that, like a old
car or a comfy pair of shoes, gives them life and personality.
What a great collection...
Thanks Ryan

This thread needs Paul Simon singing "Kodochrome" in the background...

I might have to burn a roll before it goes away.

Well I figured Bob G. might have a little airbrush experience. And then considering the way most everybody on the forums drools over these pictures...
