Two toned sedan

On Saturday (April 26) I went to a classic car show at Lake Wheeler in Raleigh, NC. I like the old cars, but once they are parked, side by side, with their hoods up and their "DO NOT TOUCH" signs, I find few photo opportunities. SO I like to go early and catch the cars as they drive in. This Saturday, I was a bit late, so only caught a few. And the sun was pretty bright, so glare was an issue. But I think a few are worth showing.

This one is a Dodge, mid-1930s I would guess.

Agree with your sentiments here and this arrival pic proves the point - cars are, essentially, about movement.

A fine shot of this Dodge driving by. It would be fun to own one of these, but probably very expensive.

@Don: Unless you are a Jay Leno type who keeps a fleet of antique cars and a full time staff to maintain them, a car like this is more about time than money. You can pick up a clean model and make modest improvements for less than a Mercedes/Lexus/etc. Of course you CAN spend a fortune, but of what hobby is that untrue? But you only spend your money on a toy like this if you want to devote a lot of time and effort (and yes, money) to keeping it up and making it better.
