My Spotlighted Images
My Photoblog Challenges Winners
For the next several weeks, I'll be busy. My commenting will be spotty. I have preloaded images, some of which I think you'll like, for the duration.
Listed on Photoblogs.org
Polished chrome, lovingly buffed hood emblem, a sea of lustrous paintwork which reflects the pride of a dutiful owner, and memories of days when workmanship took pride of place.
The splash of colour works really nicely

This tempting little series has me trying to figure what year the Durant is . . pre-1930?

@Ronnie 2¢: According to a little WEB research, the Durant Motors Corporation was in business from 1921 to 1932 (or 1934, depending on source) when it was declared bankrupt.
This is a fabulous hood ornament. Those were the days...heavy chrome and style in creating car decorations! Very nice shot.
