1961 Chevrolet Parkwood

Canon PowerShot S80

The other day I looked back through my many photos from the Mecum classic car auctions I used to go to. What fun those auctions were for me.

I used to take all of my digital cameras, plus all of my extra battery packs. That was one camera at first, then two, then three, all point-and-shoots. I also always brought one film camera. I was loaded down with gear!

This 1961 Chevrolet Parkwood station wagon was such a lovely color. I tended to shoot my Canon PowerShot S80 at 28mm, its default setting, which let me bring in lots of this wagon’s flank.

    My folks owned a Chevy Biscayne wagon this same color when I was a kid. I think ours was a 1964 or 65. Your photo brought back pleasant memories.

    Your close-ups of emblems and badges bring out details I had never noticed about them, even for someone like me who has always noticed stuff like that. Fabulous!

      IKR? Why are all cars black, white, gray, or beige today?

        The same reason there are no hood ornaments or cool lines. Because we are boring and unimaginative in our quest for uniformity.
