Kenny, I very much like the amount of car you included here.
Love the composition.

a late Model T, just starting to show some of the lines in the cowl and front grill that later appear in the Model A.
a good shot and well processed.
regards, tom

Thank you both. Film doesn't seem to 'get too much love'here. The front end of these old Fords are the most photogenic IMO, Chris.

Kenny- Chris nailed my strongest reaction to this excellent image. Until I scrolled right and saw the edge of the fender, I was worried that I wouldn't get to see it. Oh, joy- it IS there. Not sure exactly why, but that makes all the difference in the world to me.
This is a really fine image in all ways.
I bet that Ford looks better now than when it came out of the factory. There's a lot of loving care in this restoration.

Actually, Charlie, compared to the rest of this gentleman's collection, this Model T looks pretty rough around the edges. It may be that he's gonna do some work on it but it is not completely restored. My fine photography doesn't show the rough edges.

Definitely a beaut, and well captured. One question though, is it backwards? Can't quite make out the logo but almost looks reversed?

No matter, great image!

Now that you mention it, it is. Forgot to flip the neg on the scanner. Good eye, my friend.
