Taken at the Kenosha car show on August 31, 2019. It's probably a 1955 Cadillac Eldorado with an aftermarket grill.

I managed to try out the PL 12-60mm with the Digital King 0.7X converter over the weekend.

I got swooped by spur-wing plovers for this!

We're definitely approaching "swooping season". Magpies are generally the offenders around here.

I'm embarrassed that I can't identify the car. Given my age and interest in motor vehicles, I should be able to. That letter 'D' on the rear pillar looks so familiar but I've spent the last hour trying...

The magpies are the usual offenders here, too, but I saw many, many nesting plover pairs when I shot this. The car looked like a Triumph to me, but I didn't dare evoke the plover's wrath by getting closer! I'm guessing, from the D, it's a Dolomite.

It was a Triumph Dolomite, this one is the Sprint version.

How could I not recognise that! 🙄
I used to own a Triumph 2.5 PI from the same era and the Dolomite body was a scaled down version of that car.

My minor goddess hasn't been out of the shed for a few months, but I start her up when I remember (not actually every week, like I plan to). I took these with EM10.2 and my new old Canon FD AC-Zoom 35-70mm f/3.5-4.5 adapted with Roxsen focal reducer - while not great, it's more enjoyable to use than expected!

Magnificent.
Looks in beautiful condition.
I love these. I was introduced to them in my first year at work.
A works supervisor (roads) would take me with him when he needed survey input and always up the scrub.
We'd turn off the main road, head bush, and up would go the suspension.
They were so comfortable to ride in.
What's the extra digits around inner circle of the speedo? 80,150, 250

That's a great story - one of the best parts about ownership is hearing the memories people always share! She's all there but is actually very shabby. I'm looking forward to getting the seats rebuilt and upholstered, but need to sell something else first.
