I've posted many of these photos in the 18-105 sample images thread but as I process more of them I wanted to put them in a thread of their own. The lighting in the museum was not the best for the f4 lens, so some photos may be noisy. But the museum itself is very interesting. Of course, it's all about the cars and technology. Well, almost all.. First, the Presidential limousines. FDR's DSC05545-2 1 by BugsDaddy, on Flickr DSC05544-1 by BugsDaddy, on Flickr Kennedy's - that's the very limo he was shot in. They fixed it & reused it for LBJ. DSC05535-2 by BugsDaddy, on Flickr Ronald Reagan's DSC05532-2 by BugsDaddy, on Flickr DSC05531-3 by BugsDaddy, on Flickr Some classic cars from the early age of automobile. 1904 Packard. This one looks more like a coach than a car. DSC05539_v1 by BugsDaddy, on Flickr 1927 LaSalle, the entry-level brand for Cadillac. DSC05571-1 by BugsDaddy, on Flickr This cartoonish thing is a "Cycle car" with a motorcycle engine. Popular for a very brief time in the early XX century... a very weird, steampunk looking contraption. DSC05573-3 by BugsDaddy, on Flickr We've certainly come a long way since then Although the way my MIL drives, I do wonder sometimes... DSC05541_v1 by BugsDaddy, on Flickr And now we're getting to the Golden Age of the American automobile... 1959 Cadillac Eldorado... I'd kill to have this baby. Well, not really. But I'd love to ride in one of these... that's when they had plenty of taste and weren't afraid to experiment. DSC05533-3 by BugsDaddy, on Flickr The classic 1955 Chevy Corvette. DSC05567-5 by BugsDaddy, on Flickr I actually worked with a guy who owned one of these since when they just came out... that was back around 1992 so the car must've been almost 40 years old and as spotless as if it only just came off the dealer's lot. Checker's Yellow Cab. This one is from 1982 but the design hasn't changed since 1950s. I wish they kept producing them in this classic body style, just like they do in England. DSC05543-5 by BugsDaddy, on Flickr That's one cool looking truck. DSC05538-8 by BugsDaddy, on Flickr A monstrous snow plow / steam locomotive. It's hard to imagine just how enormous it feels when you stand next to it. DSC05556-4 by BugsDaddy, on Flickr Richard Byrd's original Fokker airplane from his 1926 North Pole expedition. The one in which he became the first person to ever fly over the North Pole... or may be didn't. There's still controversy surrounding this flight. At any rate, he was most definitely near the pole. Henry Ford financed the expedition so he got the plane. The Fokker company didn't want people to think that the airplane was made by Ford (who also built some planes) so they put their name, in huge letters, both on the side of the airplane and on the wings. I wonder what nickname did the crew have for it... DSC05575-4 by BugsDaddy, on Flickr More to follow !
