Here’s another photo I took with my Olympus XA on Arista Premium 400 at the Mecum auction last month. This is my favorite shot on the roll, of the long flank of a 1958 Plymouth Fury. The giant West Pavilion at the Indiana State Fairgrounds is filled with skylights that bathe the cars in plenty of light. It let me open the aperture wide for shallow depth of field. This is also from the first set of negatives I scanned myself. I still haven’t taken the plunge on buying my own processing equipment, though.
Except for having been repainted once during its lifetime, this Plymouth is an original and unrestored example of the Forward Look design theme common to the entire Chrysler Corporation line in the mid-late 1950s. I’m a huge fan.
