Mean Green Drivin' Machine

A friend and I went for a very spur of the moment drive out to Point Reyes Station a couple of days ago. By the time we got there it was already close to the time the town starts rolling up the sidewalks. We hurriedly grabbed a parking spot on one of the side streets and went in a few shops before they closed. On our way back to the car I spotted this wonderful green (original paint, I'm sure) Studebaker parked directly across the street. This beauty was actually sitting on someone's side yard with a FOR SALE sign on her so I felt like it was perfectly OK to be taking pictures (I shot 133 to be exact...lol). I quickly started snapping away as I was losing the light at rapid speed. The setting sun made the light on the chrome absolutely perfect — just enough to get a sweet golden glow on the chrome bits without creating those oh-so-annoying hot spots. I was absolutely GIDDY with excitement! :-D

 

As I always say...timing is EVERYTHING. Our little road trip was great fun and seeing this cool vintage car alone was worth the price of admission. :-)

 

More pics to follow in the future, I'm sure. ;-)
