This past weekend I attended a get together with some old car buddies. On the way back, a good friend of mine got this shot out of his passenger window as we cruised along. I thought it was a pretty neat pic.

Driving the '46

Same shot sort of 'washed out' of color.

What kind of camera did you use? That is a wonderful shot, definitely a keeper.

Thank you for all the kind words... I give the credit to my buddy for the shot and my fiance for driving the 'camera car'. I just drove.

A special thanks to the great folks on that she's even running! grin

He may send me some more shots he took and if he does, I'll post those as well. If anyone just wants other pics I already have pm me with your e-mail and I'll send 'em along.
