Fly-In: Arlington, Washington.

1948 Chrysler Windsor Sedan.

Chrysler built thousands of Sherman tanks during the World War II years of 1942-1945. Three years later, their cars still somewhat resembled tanks...big and heavy...but they had glorious amounts of chrome, plush mohair seats, wind wings, cowl air scoops, ultra wide white sidewall tires and even old fashioned suicide doors:-)

This really pops in b&w! It's a beautiful old car, and your postwork has really done it justice. Nice work!

We have been a Ford family for 3 generations but I often toyed with the idea of breaking out of the box and buying a Chrysler. They just had style and could take a licking on the road. :-) Guess I know why now. Oh well, unless its a used one, I won't be getting one now I suppose. Lovely shot of this old gal.

The days of flat glass windscreens...
curves everywhere but there.
Your work in B&W suits the vehicle very well,

These were a beauty Bill just before the fins took over.
My personal favourite pre-fin is the 1951-54 Chevy Bel Air.

Marvellous capture of this stunning oldie! I saw one of these in the last little while, and was absolutely fascinated! Exquisitely maintained, and what a lovely shine! I like how you've done the B&W theme... it's most fitting and adds the antique feel to it even more so! Splendid subject and POV!

Great shot! It's hard to remember how big cars were in those days. Very substantial vehicles. I like the use of B & W here, it adds to the antique feel of this old "tank"

It looks like they took a leaf out of Henry Fords book 'you can have any colour as long as it's black' beautiful capture.
