Photo of the Week: Impala Sunset
The images keep flowing over at the Palm Springs Automobilist Facebook Page. This week's top photo was "Impala Sunset", a great twilight look at a '59 Impala Sport Sedan at Oval Beach in picturesque Saugatuck, Michigan. Surprisingly enough, it's one of my own photos (I'm known for leaving the lens cap on) but even a blind squirrel finds a nut now and then.
And sharing a similar theme, I decided to include the second place photo as well. It's a Life magazine picture from the early '60s that I call "Along the Banks of the Hardtop River" and shows a riverbank shored up with abandoned cars that we would just happen to DIE FOR today. A great period look at how quickly these majestic chariots were discarded.
