In late 1999, a group of five or six friends took a road trip along the old Route 66 through New Mexico, Texas, and Oklahoma. We stopped at nearly every crazy tourist spot. I found this gas station/early era convenience store of particular visual interest. At that point I thought, "I will remember where I took this" and did not bother to mark the transparency image below, one of the deadly sins photographers can commit. I suspect it is in the Texas panhandle.
This is a lineup of classic Chevrolet sedans, circa 1955/56 and a Chevy Nomad, transporting a wedding party to the reception. I was shooting out the window of another vehicle. Thanks to Earle Williams and his staff at Williams Classic Chassis Works for the detail and body work on the vehicles. Added bonus - check out the 2003 gas prices in the Pomona, California area.
Naturally, I could not neglect the desire to hop on a motorcycle and hit the road.
Wherever the road takes you this week, enjoy the ride!
until next Monday,
a passion for the image
