Red hot


IMG_6348I love old cars. There is something magical about cars as old as this one, that look so shiny and cared for. I also really like the way the sun reflects the "star-bursts" in so many places.

The Ford Fairlane, produced from 1955 to 1971, began as a premiere full-size car with curvy lines and a distinctive stainless steel stripe on the side.

Later on the Fairlane name was used for mid-size Ford models, and even for a drag-strip racer type car in the mid 1960s.

I have no idea the age of this car. Looking at one of the car club websites, my best guess for this car would be 1958. If anyone knows for sure, let me know.

It sure is pretty!


  1. Someone have looked after the car with LOVE.
    And I like the way you have created these shots, and I love the bright/sharp colors and the composition too. Just superb!!:)

  2. That is one SNAZZY car! Good job for capturing its personality. My dad had a 1957 Ford Fairlane, and it was a great car. I think you may be right that this is probably a 58 -- As I remember, the car began to spread its "wings" the year after my dad bought his.

  3. That is one snazzy car! The photo ops on that one are plentiful.
