People and Their Cars - Your Contributions are Welcome!
« on: October 27, 2012, 05:42:19 AM »
Who has not taken a picture of a loved one or friend with a car? Or had their picture taken with their car? In this thread you'll find candid non-professional pictures of cars. Each picture seems to imply a story. Perhaps the car had just come home from the dealer, and pride of ownership overcame the new owner? It could be that the owner had spent spent untold hours tweaking his car to his own unique taste. Maybe the car had taken the people to an adventure. Or, maybe it was the adventure. Perhaps, like the car, the photographer saw his or her significant other as a possession or trophy. I suspect many of the people in these pictures are no longer with us, or have long forgotten when, where or why these scenes were shot.

I hope you'll enjoys crafting your own scenarios for these people and their machines. And, as always, please add some of you own.  :)

Nice idea!

Here's a selection. As Otto said in his preamble, there's a story behind each one, but that is going to be left to the viewer's imagination.  :)

Different cars, same boy.

By the way, I love the one with the guy trying to sell his own book (My flight to Venus! :o) in front of his car...

The tough part, with this kind of thread, is to make sure that one is not posting a picture that's already there somewhere above.
But this one is invaluable...
I offer no guarantees.

This Tucker photo seems to be a period pic. What year? The car looks like it has seen some miles.
