For the Veterans…

I have great respect for our veterans that have defended this country, inside and out. A friend sent me this drawing, so I’m passing it on to all you veterans, with a very big, heartfelt THANK YOU!

Tampa Bay Auto Show

8 11 2008

Okay, so as a part of a photo project I’m working on, I headed over to the Auto Show at the Tampa convention center. I must say, with a few exceptions, I’m pretty disappointed with the cars on display.

What had been touted as a great display of beautifully restored cars turned out to have about 6 of them in total. And they weren’t even a part of the main displays… Pretty disappointing, I must say. A lot of the cars look alike and aren’t all that difference in price, colors, looks, and performance. Hmmm. Sounds like a lot of computers these days…. Except for the few that truly set themselves apart.

I’m not a new Ford fan. If it’s a Ford made after about 1970, I’m not usually going to like it. I actually like the new concept car that was on display, the Ford Airstream, despite the fact that it looks like something out of a Nintendo or Atari game. What I don’t understand, is how is it NOT a copyright infringement?

This one’s for you Richard – it’s time to trade in your Titan for the Airstream. That way you can have a Ford Airstream pulling your Airstream Safari! 🙂 Sorry – had to get that one in. But the front looks a lot like the Airstreams, so you can imagine the comments.

The Lamborghini cars were pretty awesome this year too. They’ve updated a classic design and re-designed another. Needless to say, these cars speak for themselves.

Another beautifully restored car was the Czech Tatra. There’s a lot of history behind these cars, but I’m going to save that for another day. So for now, enjoy the pictures!

One of the concept cars that I really looked forward to seeing was the new Chevy Camaro (2010). Beautiful car, decent specs, and overall, it reminds me of my favorite animal, the Great White shark. C’mon, you can’t tell me this doesn’t look like the shark….

And of course, my favorite for last. Can anyone tell me what this is?
