Default The LT1 on a mountain road...

I was looking at some property on the side of a mountain yesterday and saw a good backdrop so I racked off 100 or so frames and came up a nicely framed shot with the road disappearing up the hill....

Awesome shot James. Two black stripes on the roadway would have been the cherry on top.

Thanks Lawrence...
Looks much better after Clay barrring and then 2 apps of Meguires Number 7...
The checking is less visible on the deck and the hood after number 7.
I have original comfort weave seats with nice full bolsters to be delivered this week.
Need a PG master cyl and survivor smog pump/pulley, pass tree, and survivor smog hoses, check valves...

How about 3 - 5 sets...
The first shot was with 135mm zoom from about 50 feet away... so the background was blurred so much you couldn't see them...
This was much closer with the lens opened up...

Nice shots, James. With the '71 plate on there, bias ply tires would cap off "the look".

I was trying to decide whether to go with Firestones or Goodyears... I like the Goodyears however my brother works for Bridgestone/Firestone Corp.
Thinking about getting some Aluminum Slots and putting some BFG's on them to drive it.

Those are some good photos. Great looking ride. Love the LT1 hoods with stripe.

One of (IMHO) the top hoods of all time.
