Not sure these cars aged too well. Look at these long overhangs...

I had seen this rat rod once before when I didn't have a camera. Always hoped I'd get the chance to get some shots one day. For your consideration, a Fokker DR-1 (well...that's what it says anyway) The Ghost of the Red Baron!

The skull is the air cleaner. Eyes light up, as do the breathers on the valve covers. The machine guns flashed too, couldn't seem to catch them.

I finally took a flash with me. This is in a park in the evening. Most of the cars are parked under shade trees, and even the ones that aren't require shooting into the sun in at least one direction. The flash worked really well and while I have a lot to learn, the first shot of the grill was definitely made easier with the flash. Not sure I would've been able to get the shot without it with the sun right there.

Edited because I found out the exif had been stripped during processing. Now both the old and new show up in my edit list, and I have no idea which is which. The ones below are the old ones, and there they shall stay!

Don't see an old Chevy like this very often in England.
