I am not a “car guy,” but the other week I spotted this cool looking vehicle and I just had to see if I could take some shots, because it reminded me of a car that would be in any horror movie. Though not a car guy, I do definitely appreciate fine art, whether it be in oils or metal, and this definitely ranks as fine art!

It was such a gnarly looking vehicle!

So…I went over and found the car’s owner, explained to him my deal, and he allowed me to take some shots. Now, I took them in both color and monochrome, but I really like the monochrome better. Only a couple of them came out where the guy wasn’t in the shot or other identifying objects such as license plates (and I can’t figure out how to smudge em in the images), so I’m only presenting three shots here, two monochrome and one color. Had I thought about it at the time, I would have asked the owner to pose with his ride, but I didn’t.

The car is a ’54 Buick “Super.” It’s owner is Jon Spindler. He graciously allowed me to use his name and the images of his ride. Thank you, Jon, for allowing me to interrupt your day and use these images!

The roof is a sparkling burgundy, and the body is a really neat flat black, which, the guy told me, is tough to maintain. Since it’s not a glossy coat, it attracts all kinds of dust, which get into the non-sealed (my word, like I said, I am not a car guy…) finish. But, man, it looks neat! I much prefer this look over glossy. I have a color image below.

Isn’t it just a cool car?

And that’s exactly why I just had to take these shots.

  1. Great pictures!! I love old cars, though I don’t know much about them. My dad had a ’67 Chevy Camaro when I was growing up and I guess that helped to gravitate my attention towards the older style cars. The sad thing is, I never even got to drive it.

      Oooh, yeah, A room mate of mine in college had a blue ’67 Camaro, and I DID get to drive it! That’s one of my favorite classic cars! Thanks, and thanks for cruising by, Jill!

    This made me smile. I used to drive a 66 Plymouth Fury – the car in Stephen King’s Christine. 🙂

      Cool! I know “Christine” was red, but that was the first thing I thought about, along with that other movie with a killer car I can no longer remember.

    Very cool-looking car, Frank! A definite head-turner. I would’ve stopped and taken some pics of it myself — the black and white was a nice touch. And yes, I can see it producing a story idea or two.
