In this post we have a look at an old classic, the 1934 Ford Coupe. Introduced in 1932, the Ford Coupe model 40 came with a V8 engine. These old historic cars have become extremely popular amongst hot-rodders. Take one look at one and you'll understand why.

The 42nd Annual Street Rod Nationals East were held in York PA June 5, 6 & 7 and of course, I was more than happy to drop in to see some of the estimated 4000 vehicles roaming and parked within the York Fairgrounds. If you like muscle cars, hot rods and customs, this was the event to attend for those in the Mid-Atlantic Region

After returning from my trip to Aruba I found out that the Mecum Auctions were up the road in Harrisburg Pennsylvania. There was only one day left for the event so I quickly decided to take the Sunday morning drive.

For those not familiar with Mecum Auctions, they are the auctioneering clearing house for vintage cars, trucks and motorcycles.

A look back in time at a street scene from yesteryear? These old school cars may have you thinking so but in fact, this image was taken in the Spring of 2012.The combination of the older buildings and trailers also lend themselves to an overall feeling of times gone by.

This was an actual gathering of classic cars at an auto show in York PA. Attendees numbered into the thousands on this beautiful Sunday afternoon.

I processed this image using Nik's HDR Efex Pro 2. The zero (0) exposure was used to freeze the moving car on the roadway. Afterward the image was imported into Photoshop where I removed a transformer and the ugly lines that were cluttering the image as they draped across the building in the center. Final touches were added with Topaz's Simplify filter.

Below we have a black and white conversion, as no "old school" post is complete without one. :-)
