Model A Ford - polarized


Many years ago, as a young man, I had several occasions to drive a Model A. Great fun!

Wow, I love how old cars are well kept. My dad's friend has a car just like that one (we call them "burritas" -little donkeys- here). They are very popular for weddings.

Wow, that looks classic! I also liked the effect that you have done with the colors. Did you try a black & white for this photo?

Although Henry Ford would be pleased that this Model A has remained in service for so long, the paint job on this car is the antithesis to the Henry Ford phllosophy that buyers may have whatever color car they want, as long as it is black.

Any pictures of you driving it? ;-) I really like this polarised effect! Have a great weekend!

Great car, looks very classic! But I bet it is not "too" comfortable:)

Oh, I've always wanted to ride in one of these old cars. When I was a little girl, my grandpa had a couple of really old cars, not sure what they were but they never ran and just sat out in his yard but I'd have alot of fun pretending to drive in them!
Great photo!
Hey, the sun is finally out here!

Never ridden in one of those. On the other, occasionally get to ride in a souped up convertible Camaro :) http://photoblog.twincityphotos.com/2008/05/1-2-3-go/

The outboard motor in the background with the word Honda looks makes an unusual label for this picture. East meets West, Old vs.New, Who knows what happens when holding the camera?

What a great old car. They made them with a lot of soul in those times.

Oh, I do like this picture. I like what you've done to it - the effect is really quite striking. My dad's uncle had a Model A when I was a kid. My sisters and I loved visiting him in Michigan and getting to ride down the local roads in it...bumping and bumping...and enjoying every minute of it! We especially liked to honk the horn: "Aah-OOOH-guh!" Thanks for the memories.

Is this a real working Model A? I have never tried to polarize an image, interesting effect. It looks a bit like a camouflaged version of the car.

Marie said...

Fantastic effect. How did you do that? I like old cars better than new ones. I am a "passéiste" :-)
Have a nice Sunday.

Hey! You've been experimenting lately with Photoshop. I like this photo. It has a vintage feel to it. Nice one, Jacob.

Thanks for visiting Norwich Daily Photo and leaving your comment. Have a great weekend! Come back tomorrow for more of Fairhaven!

@ VP - So far as I know, yes. They drive it around frequently. From the looks of it, I'd guess it's been complete redone with new engine, etc.

Denise Jelonek said...

Very cool picture! Well done!

sheer bliss .. it should be to drive this beauty ....

tapirgal said...

Your treatment of the photo looks in keeping with the car's age. Very nice!

Lois said...

How beautiful! My Granny used to tell me stories about driving around in her Model T Roadster when she was a girl.

Marie-Noyale said...

Did you get married in one?!!

Jacob said...

Non, Marie-Noyale. When we met, I was driving a 1937 Chevrolet. When we married, I had moved "up" to a 1950 Plymouth coupe!

Those were the days!
