Very nice group Brad. I see you still are getting excellent car shots. Keep it up. Love 'em. #1474481

Thanks Dale, one would think I don't shoot anything else but cars from this months entries. Car Show season is here and that is what I do in the summer months. Traveling in last quarter of the year so something other than car pics then. Thanks for the comments. #10226770

:o) I know what you mean. I was headed to a model airplane event a few weeks ago and passed a local car show. Never did make it to the model plane site. Dumped a few on my blog. #10226881

WTG Car-man! :-) Congratulations on your well deserved gold badge Brad! You know I love all of your car images! :-) Do you know if this car was called a Sunbeam or does it look similar to one?

Brad Harding 9/1/2012 6:34:53 AM

The Metropolitan or Metropolitan / Nash was made in the USA and the Sunbeam was made in England. The Sunbeam Alpine series resembles this particular year for the Metro. The Sunbeam Alpine series 1 - V ran from 1959 to 68 and was a two seater. The later 60's models looked more like the Metro.

Nice to finally get a gold for a car picture or any picture as far as that goes. Thanks Joannie! #10303344
