Five Star Imperial

This 1950 Chrysler Crown Imperial limousine carried Gen Douglas MacArthur to and from his office at the Dai Ichi insurance building in Tokyo during the latter part of the Occupation of Japan. When MacArthur returned to the United States in 1951, the Crown Imperial was shipped to him in New York City where he continued to use it until 1963, when it was returned to the U.S. Army motor pool and subsequently given to the MacArthur Memorial in Norfolk Virginia. Canon 5D Mark II, 1/40 sec @ f/8.0, ISO 400, 35mm focal length.

- Got a new "used" car today - a BMW 135i convertible. The new Bimmer is great fun to drive and the trademark orange instrument panel shows its built for speed. I'm sure it's Black Sapphire Metallic exterior will soon be a featured photo on this blog. Canon G11, 1/3 sec @ f/2.8, ISO 800 in macro mode.

Frosty Beamer

- Awoke to a heavy frost this morning. Went out to get the paper and decided it was worth a picture of the frosty emblem on Cindy's BMW. While it was cold this morning with snow still on the ground, today's high of 55ºF and tomorrow's forecast for lows 60's will make it seem as if Spring is here. Canon G11, 1/100 @ f/3.2, ISO 200, in macro mode.

At the Car Wash

- Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa.
Took both cars to the Freedom Wash today to get the road salt and grime off. Had to take some pictures while being conveyored through the wash. This is the spot free rinse on the wind shield. Is it just me or do you see an dancer in this photo as well?
Talkin' about the car wash, girl, come on, ya'll and sing it for me, oooh, oooh, oooh.
Now that song is stuck in your head too. From 1976 by Rose Royce. Canon G11, 1/800 sec @ f/8.0, ISO 200.

Tunnel Crawl

From 2010 Blog
- Brake lights abound as I did the tunnel crawl last Thursday afternoon coming back from Hampton Virginia through the Hampton Roads Bridge Tunnel - the HRBT to locals. I was headed east on I64 on the down slope toward the bottom of Thimble Shoals channel. The camera was dash mounted and fired with a remote control. Canon G11, 1/10 sec @ f/4.5, ISO 400.

236 - Cooper Jack

From 365 Project
Parked next to this Mini Cooper with the these Union Jack covers on the side and rear view mirrors. I think Coopers now have the most after market accessories of any car. It seems that everyone who has one has tricked it up. In the old days the original VW Beetle was king of the accessories, I should know. Wish I still had that 1970 Bug. Canon G10, 1/800 sec @ f/4.5, ISO 100, 150mm equivalent focal length.
