Cherry's #3

This 1926 Dodge is amazing to behold.
One wonders what the original owner would think of this paint job.
To our 21st century hot rod lovin' eyes, the "real fire" effect is awesome.

The high gloss, the fire effect on a black background and very little further customization make this a stunning specimen.

Original hood decor (or darn good replicas) includes the irresistible cloisonne-like Dodge Brothers emblem.

The high gloss plays a few tricks on the eyes.
I managed to capture myownself in the rear window.

  1. your comments are pure poetry. And your photos are excellent.

  2. Thank you! That is indeed humbling to read (especially from the blogger who originally inspired me to create this blog).

  3. Super photography of a super car. My first car was a 1937 Chevy...which I proceeded to lower and deck, etc. But it didn't look anything like this. Truly amazing. Thanks for sharing!

  4. Wow the gloss does render a realistic look to the fire. Great photo!

  5. Excellent shots and what a great car.

    Darryl and Ruth : )

  6. Good gravy--that does look like real fire! And you caught it with your camera--amazing. By the way, the header on your blog is wonderful.

  7. Thanks, everybody. Having an attractive subject helps!

    Beth - thanks for the comment about the header. I wanted to bring that wall home with me.
