This mid 50s Chevrolet stationwagon at the Ventura Auto Show brought back early teen memories of weekend fishing trips with my Father. He had a 1953 wagon and the back seat folded down and he would sleep inside on a mattress, while I got to sleep outside on a army surplus cot. I really was attracted to seeing Nature and fishing was only the tool to get outside urban SoCal. A big benefit of sleeping in California's deserts and mountains was the night sky, the stars radiated beyond civilization.

Perfect quality shot! The star on the metal part said about excellent exposure. Very nice portrait of Chevy. This old guy has good good condition. Once I've met old Packard in LA. I will post that photo some later too.

This brings back some memories--some good and some bad. Those are some heavy duty cars of the past. I like the lines, smooth and elegant. Good lighting and nice details. Well done, tfs.

I like the shot of the Chevy station wagon (that's an expression young people would not know). But it is the personal note that adds special interest. I remember the massive chrome bumpers on cars in those days.
Warm regards and have a good weekend,

another attractive old car, designed to be practical and convenient but also to make an impact with its distinctive features. I like this dynamic composition too, the frame is entirely dedicated to the big car and the light has enhanced the vividness of its colours and the quality of its textures. Lovely images are evoked by your note too. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely weekend,
