    Got asked to have my car in a photo shoot the first week I owned it. Had some trouble uploading them Untitled.png Untitled.png Untitled.png to here so I had to use screen shots.

    Not the owner but I’m am in a sense the current care taker. One of the Simon and Simon 57’s convertibles. It was painted turquoise for a Midas muffler commercial. Dark blue paint is underneath. [​IMG][​IMG]

    Only right that I should do it since I have used her and her sister as props also.

    About 15 years ago I was at a car show and some guy and six girls in Budweiser bathing suits came up to me and asked to use my Deuce roadster for a poster, photo shoot. They took about 20 or so pictures and he gave me his business card. Never heard anything since!

    26 years ago, I had the reverse happen. A group asked if my 40 something year old wife would consent to be photographed with their cars. I don't recall anyone calling her a "prop", though. :p
    She's an older cutie now. But she still has a lot of that same size/same figure left, to me she does, anyway.......... but without the big Texas hair. :D
    I thought I was a very lucky S.O.B. when I met her and I still haven't changed my mind about that. :rolleyes:

    The cars were O/T so I cropped.

    Aside from pictures of the car itself, my friend from law school asked if I could be her wedding limo with my '57. I was happy to oblige.

    yes, I have a local photographer with me on speed dial. She is an excellent photographer and person with desire to use my ol beater as a prop. The young guy wanted his senior pics with a hotrod... who can say no to that? FB_IMG_1574993545117.jpg FB_IMG_1574993536397.jpg FB_IMG_1574993611419.jpg
