His faithful Steed.

Talk about commitment and love. Leigh is a guy who has spent many an hour caring for the first new car he and his bride bought way back in 1967. “Musty” has been through a lot! From getting sprayed with gravel and rocks back when I-90 was being built, to run over by a truck and even surviving many years in a high school parking lot, as a daily driver! Elevated to “family member” status, she is finally getting the respect she deserves. Leigh is a member of the Mustang Club of America (link here) and was asked recently to put together an article about his car. I am not even going to try to give you a overview. You would be better off reading it from him. Till they publish it (hopefully) I’lll just tempt you with some photos. These are a few of my favorites.

Here he is with his ride. Love the custom plates. That's original paint folks! There were a few bugs that needed some photo-shopping. The first location wasn't so bad. There was one dedicated little guy who managed to smear himself on the air cleaner though.

This is probably my favorite shot. Nice soft sun, the hills in the background and the car with a nice pose.

This is a little more like what I wanted to try. Back light sun set, with some soft light on the shade side of the car. I think I over-did it. But I still like it. And it gave me some great ideas for future shoots.

I would love to get her out again.  There is something nice about shooting a car.  I’m not just talking about the fact that the hold still (hello suggered up kids)  But there is something “sexy” about them, and I don’t have to worry about what folks will think of me shooting a living model.

I’ll update you all when/if the story get’s published.

  2. […] @ 7:04 pm You may recall back in July when I shot my father in law with his 67′ Stang (link here).  He had written to the editor of Mustang Times about his 1967 coup that he and his wife were […]
