Three on the column

Posted by
Harry (Apex, NC, United States) on 22 January 2015 in Transportation and Portfolio.

Those old cars had simple interiors. No seat belts, no air bags. A plain bench seat and a three speed shifter on the column. You can just barely see the clutch pedal in the lower right, This is a three shot HDR, and I had a lot of digital noise to contend with. I did not record the make or model of the car.

I love old wrecks. I often wonder what stories they can tell. We used to call a column shifter "There on the tree."

@RobertB: I have a hard time getting back to your blog, and when I do, many of my comments fail.

This is a remarkable image of the old car's interior. It's worthwhile to recall where cars came and who simple they were. A fine picture, Harry.

Wonderful and attractive image ... love the textures. I do miss the bench seats in these older cars ~ they were comfortable and roomy :)

@RBL: Yes, they were, but they were also much less safe and much harder to maintain. Thanks for your visits and comments.
