This is a fully restored 1951 Emergency Pickup built for the US Airforce. The canary yellow was not avialable to the public in 1951.

Hello Tom! Great subject and good composition. You filled the frame nicely and have a nice angle on the truck. I can't decide if you should've cropped the stop sign or not but that is very minor anyway. Great color and details.

Great colors and detail here, Tom -- fine bit of framing, too. You really make this one stand out. Possibly I'd have cropped that stop sign at right, but you could argue it adds context. In any case, really nice work.

Nice shot. Very pretty car.

honestly I'm a bit surprised to see the lack of attention about this shot so far...
Wonderful Pickup, wonderful colors & framing, "wonderful" to notice once again how things on TE work in their own mysterious ways.
I personally like it a lot.

What a neat restored "golden" oldie! Crisp colors, good clarity, and a special frame. Great work and TFS. Gerald

A good composition of this old timer. I like the tight framing and the inclusion of the Stop sign. Superb saturated colours and excellent sharpness.

!!!!-:)) Hi Tom great, this is an artistic object,an art object for museum.
Very well framed and composed with the road sign ( the stop sign on the right corner.)
You captured it with an ideal light the colors are stunning.
Have a nice time.

I like this one. The colours of that truck are impressive. The green and the yellow fit together well. Excellent point of view and sharpness. Vehicles were so stylish in that time. We have a good example of it.

Hello Tom -
What a nice truck and you captured it well. I am not sure whether a more oblique view, so we can see the box, would improve the image or not. The stop sign in the BG IMO should be cropped or if you have more image should be complete. That's just a bit of nit-picking. But, I over the composition is good but it may be about 1/2 stop underexposed. Well done.
Thank you for sharing.

Belle prise de vue et beau camion, la restauration est bien réussie. J'aime beaucoup ces couleurs de jaune canari et de vert, ça me rappelle des souvenirs, ces deux couleurs sont les celles des camions de la Compagnie où je travaillais. Le STOP dérange un peu et j'ai préparé un WS, juste une autre façon de voir car c'est déjà une belle photo.

Great shot. I appreciate this kind of capture. Yesterday, I did some capture about old cars in my city. Good colors, sharpness and contrasts. In special, I liked these colors because they are our national colors. well done. Regards, Consuelo

Imagine the pleasure I would have pulling the fifth wheel with such a refurbished jewel!
And everybody would get out of my way because of the siren and the flasher!
Quite an appealing subject.

You captured gresat detail and color and framed those classic lines well; I like the head-on look.

I like the way that you have your photos displayed on the "random mode". This enabled this great shot of this 1951 Ford pickup to stand out on the small thumbnails. This vintage truck was manufactured the same year that yours truly was born (a pair of antiques). What a beautiful job of restoration! Modern cars simply don't have the character of these old masterpieces do. Fantastic photograph!

The intensity of the contrasting colors especially on the polished surfaces of the restored truck is outstanding. I like the inclusion of the stop sign in the otherwise very close crop. It is a beauty!
