    I wonder what the price tag will be. I don't care how new they are I will always love my first car a 1956 Crown Victoria.

I know what you mean. That first car meant a lot. Mine was a VW bug!

My sisters 1963 Rambler was so much fun. You had to hit the dashboard to get the radio to work and pump the gas pedal real fast to get it to catch! HA! After that, it sure would take off!

Ron, I can't even imagine how much this would be. It sure was beautiful however.

Half a mil will seem cheap someday :-) I remember when my x-husband and I bought a Shelby Cobra for 10K in the 60's when a house cost that much, now they are going for as much as this car. Great capture and presentation Laura!

Hi Kitty, Jack and Julianne!

Kitty...ME TOO!

Jack? Really? Is this the price tag?

Thank you guys. Fun to read your comments.

Wow Julianne! And YES. I sure remember when 10K was BIG MONEY!!! FOR SURE!

Thank you Leslie. Hi Paddy! Thanks very much!

Hi Barbara! Nice to see you! Thank you.

This was a really cool exhibit. They had future Caddy's and all sorts of things I wasn't a BPer back then and didn't think to get too many images.

NEXT TIME I WILL!!! Have great days, all.

Outstanding capture Laura. I am particularily impressed with your exposure.

You skillfully utilized the showroom lighting to your best advantage. I particularily like your POV and the reflective highlights.

Very well done Laura. This photo is a winner in my eyes.

Wow, it is indeed a futuristic looking car, love the panoramic view for the driver. I wonder when they'd be able to fly. Great capture Laura, gotta have your camera all the time.

Hey, Pom!
This would fit in really well with "The Jetsons" series.
FYI, "The show originally aired in the early '60's,...At the time of its debut, it was the first program ever to be broadcast in color on ABC-TV. " (Wikipedia)
Since the show was set in 2062, your cool car would be a classic by then --- Jay Leno would be itching to outbid anyone to own it!
Beautiful capture of this sleek machine.

Hi All! Thank you so much! I love reading your comments. :))) !!!

Rey, so true. I carry my pocket camera with me all the time and I have been so glad that I did!!! Time and time again!

Mare, you always make me smile so big. I love seeing Jays collection. It's huge!

Very interesting about the Jetsons. I was an avid watcher. I think that is when I decided to become a space traveler. :)))

I strongly recommend Disney World or Disney Land once a year to stay young inside!

Have a great day everyone! :D

-Laura

Another reason to always have your camera with you...I still remember driving my mother's old Corvair...I loved that car. HUGE congratulations to you - you've had a great month!

Todays car are starting to look like this already. BTW, my first car was a 1952 Pontiac two door that blew sparks out of the exhaust going down the road. Didn't care, I was mobile. Congratulations on your Finalist selection Laura!

You are so right, Dave, they are! Yes! I remember just being happy to have wheels, too! Dad bought my VW for 250.00 for my birthday. After that I cared for all the maintenance and upkeep. The motor blew about a year later. 800.00 for that and I learned fast how to change fuel filters and other things! :))) Spare wiper blades on board and carried a tool kit with clamps and clips for hoses, etc...HeeHee... NOTHING WAS GOING TO STOP ME!

*

Hi Sis! I took this photo years ago. I'd love to go back to MGM Florida and see if it is still there. Maybe there is some hover craft there now! HeeHee!

Have wonderful days, all of you! Heading to the Calgary Zoo right now I think. Can't wait to get into the butterfly hut. I will think of my Dad and Mom there.

-Lala :D
