A classic Corvette arrives at a vintage car show. I even got a bit of panning blur in this one!

This reminds me of "Thunder," a '67 Corvette I was fond of.

they were a lot nicer at the beginning than now... but what a car, I like it very much, almost bought it but don't like the motto that goes with it... you would not understand, it is in french... I took parts of a yellow Corvette yesterday, might post it with the motto one day for silly tuesday... I saw a red Ferrari alson and took all the angles ot if. I love sport cars...

@Sue-Ann: If you go back to my June 4 post (easiest to do if you look at my portfolio page) you will find an older blue corvette. I would guess it is a mid- to late-1950s model.

I'm not familiar with the motto that you reference, but then I don't speak French.

I have said this before: they made such beautiful cars in the olden days!

You did a fine job of capturing the car in sharp focus and blurring just enough to add the sense of movement. Very well done, Harry.

It seems to come from another planet that car! Splendid shot. Good day.
