I have way to many pics of my car! Artsy ones and others....so I will drop 2 of my faves, 1st one was out some dirt road on the Connecticut shore line,in 1988, and the second is in the shop were I keep it now
....Ok one more!
Our photography business was doing well and we were having fun meeting lots of new people, creative builders, just nice folks with their cool hot rod builds and custom motorcycles. The hot rod that we purchased (1940 deluxe Ford Sedan Delivery 327 powered) needed a lot of work. So, the El Camino was still the workhorse, while we repaired, replaced and made big changes to the sedan delivery. Safety and drivability were two issues that had to get straight.
Both my wife and I decided that it would be a great addition to those photo shoot locations and days. Along with our business cards, sedan delivery would stick out during the photo shoots. Afterwards we hoped the bright red sedan delivery became a memory of the photography and prints coming their way.
Being a real Red color (not Salmon Pink like my high school, Flathead sedan delivery) was attractive and made the sedan delivery stick out. But we needed many months of working on it to get it to the point of safe road trips all over So Cal and inland areas.
The back of the sedan delivery was a perfect place to showcase the stacks of photographs in all different sizes and configuration. one of the most popular was a antique brown tone that made any black and white photo look like an old photo. Most were free as it did not take long to print a string of photos from the long negative roll. The color ones were custom and took longer.
Our future plans included painting the side of the red sedan delivery with the words: “Photographic Works, Laguna Beach” for the ultimate memory exposure on those photo shoot days.
