Attention New Members and those new registering!
We had a lot of problems with spammers and bot attacks with the stock measures provided by the software. The 7 for registration was a fix that we came up with on our own that has worked quite well. Yes it is a PIA for both you and administration to put you onto your chosen username.
If you come back on and your login does not work retry with your username without the 7.

Thanks for joining us from the administration.

Hang-out for cars and car buffs.

Image

'65 Fury.

Image

Heavily modified with daytime running L.E.D.'s, and G.P.S. locator.

Image

440 with Edelbrock intake and headers. Double pumper 4 bbl- I doubt it's original.

Image

I didn't get much opportunity for photo's of the car with the hood down.
This set all with Nikon D-810 and Nikkor 35-105 f3.5-4.5.
Sun was already setting, and most are wide open soft. This lens perks up a bit around f8.

Image

Owner/builder's documentation on the underside of the hood.

Image

Fury badging.

I've got a few more of a couple or so more vehicles.
Will get them up later- getting pretty tired here.

Regards,

Doc Sharptail

Ratter V-dub. I thought it was a Kharmann Ghia at first.

Image

Plenty of pre-perforation rust here.
Evidence here that an A/T was a big fat hairy deal at one time...

Image

For you Brit fans:

Jensen Interceptor III.
I know nothing about these, and have done no research.

Image

The beefed up rear suspension and dual exhaust hint at V-8 power.
Glass replacement would be a bit of a mission for that rear windscreen.

Image

Image

I thought the badging was Bentley at first.

Image

Image

'49 Chev 1/2 ton stepside.

Image

Nice chrome "grille" and front bumper.
Bumper looks period correct to my mostly un-educated eye.
The Series E 100mm f2.8 at f8 caught some decent sun-stars.
ISO 64.

Image

Box looks like a custom built replacement.
Definitely lacking the factory rear bumper.

Image

Nice work done to it. I have a soft spot for these old step-sides.

Regards,

Doc Sharptail

Those 5 windows bring stupid money now... vs buying them @ $50 any day of the week in the 60s. But that's much like anything else. SW

The Jensen Interceptors were a custom built car across the pond. You got the V8 part right, they used big and small block MoPars, 360 thru the 440 Six pack. A bit de-tuned from the US versions IIRC.

Jensen, like most British Car Companies, had an interesting history,

I rolled that truck out of the Wimpy dealership (AZ) in 1970.
We've been places.
