I had to grab a few minutes to share this wonderful old car I spotted at Lowe's today. Even though I was on a fast errand (yes,sometimes I am on slow errands) and needed to make a mad dash there and back, I took a minute to photograph this 1951 Chevy. So far it has been the highlight of my day. It has also been the shiniest thing I have found this week to share.
When I first looked at this shot I though that someone has keyed this jewel ( even though I knew it was pristine when I photographed it). If you click the photo to enlarge it you will see the lines on the side are actually reflections of the stripes on the parking lot. I was surprised to see reflections on this car on such a overcast day. The shiny finish must be the reason.
That purple smear on the bumper is my slacks. The reflections on the car are the lights and storage buildings lining the parking lot.
I watched the driver park this car and grabbed my camera. As I was walking toward the car I noticed he stopped to shine a spot on the rear fender with his shirtsleeve as he walked past it.
