Car-spotting challenge

August 8, 2009

The car-spotting challenge:  your bus is coming and you see a 1940 Ford two-door.  Can you get your camera out, turned on, warmed up (it’s an oldie that uses floppy disks), and get the picture and still get the bus?  This photo was taken on Venice Blvd near the Venice Beach on Saturday August 8, 2009.

(Yes.)  You see the pictures.

Where’s Neal Cassidy when we really need him?

On the way to the Santa Monica Public Library to post some photos of newspaper stories (so some concernced citizens would see how they looked on-line) we took along our old camera (that uses floppy disks – hence the blog name) just in case we saw anything of interest.

We say this Model A-looking vehicle in downtown Santa Monica on Sunday August 2, 2009.

That’s more like the kind of photos visitors expect to find on a car-spotting blog, eh?

Who goofed?
