IN THE FIELD: 1950’s Style

Last weekend I was in another of my favorite haunts…a local hardware store. While I was in line to pay for my merchandise, I just happened to look out the storefront windows. There in the parking lot was a pristine car from the 1950‘s. Turns out, it was 1955 Buick Special. As you can well imagine, I had to get a few photos of this classic vehicle.

I found the owner and chatted with him for a few minutes about the car before asking him if I could get a few photos. He agreed and was quite flattered I wanted to photograph his car.

We walked over to my Jeep so I could grab my camera, and we then headed over to his car. He casually mentioned the Buick was recently restored. In fact it was restored from the chassis up to the roof following the original specifications. It sure was a beauty.

A few days later I sent him a few sample photos via e-mail. As soon as our schedules permit, we will meet at a more suitable location and I will conduct a proper photo shoot of his pride and joy.
