I had a chance to attend the Lone Star Round Up in Austin this past weekend. It was my first time to go to a big car show. All I can say is wow! Lots of people and many, many cars.

Here is a link to a slideshow of the 160 pics I took. Now you can go to the car show and see it as I did! :-)
And that was only part of the cars on display.

Hope you like them. I had fun.

Thank you mike, you sure did a fine job. looks as though for you to get soem of those full frame ones you had to have spent a lot of you time on your knees,,,,thanks again for the effort.

sure is a lot of 350 chevy mills out there, and I am glad to see there is still some ‘55 Chey bodys left to show that fine design, both pillered/Biscayned and 2dr. hartop ed Bel Aires. I am old enouf to remember and Always liked the 51&52 Studies Italian sports car design, first I have seen with a chevy block though he did a fine job on a not that often seen car,,,,,, al all of thoses 3 and 5 window coupes along with all of those blowers,,,,,ah could go on, but looking past & around your features shots, that show would have been something for everyone to stand drool and admire.
thanks for the shirt pocket tag along,,,looked at them all !!!!

Thank you sir. That Studebaker with the Chevy engine was immaculate.

I have bad knees so I have to kinda squat to get the lower shots. I am feeling it today. :-( For the rear shots of the Henry J, I sat on my bootae to take those! :-)

Some’tn I almost forgot,
If’n I did not notice you picture here at your heading, I still would have guessed that you would have had some experience looking threw a lenses. May be it is sometimes taken for granite, and for sure I am no expert, but I did notice how a very high percentage of your subject were centered framed. There is a whole lot to taking a pleasurable picture that maybe the viewer would not notice beyond the subject at hand, all in al to make them look like they should. wAs an allogy whether it’s in woodworking or in photography a little extra time and ones experience is to be admired. You have to want’ah.

Not here to blow smoke your way, but just to let you know. i both liked the subject, that is obvious, but your experience in setting them up eyes to mind,,, angle, height, distance, lighting,,,you did just fine, Mike.

Thanks for the Pics Mike!

I’m thinking of getting rid of mine. Not only can I not see where I’m going, I’m also officially DEAF from the Straight Pipes!

Brings back a few memories, some good, some bad and the old saying, “If you want to make a small fortune
playing with hot rods, you have to start out with a large fortune.” I am partial to what we used to call
sleepers, and some of those Chevys look like they might fit. Thank you for sharing.
