If you are wondering how I got these
pictures.......The highway is actually a viaduct that is
over a wide valley and the main river that flows next to
Dallas Texas downtown area. It is a one way street that is
used to get from downtown to the oldest housing neighborhood
in Dallas. The bridge is heavily utilized in the afternoon
when people are leaving work to return home, but
sporadically used otherwise.
had everything ready, pulled to the side of the road, and
then when traffic cleared, pulled out and took the picture.
The Acapulco blue on the car is difficult to get a good
picture of when it is in bright sunshine.
All in all, I got very lucky to get the shot framed the way
I bought this car off a
gentleman near Boston and drove it to Dallas. I had a
green one, but when this came up for sale and was the colors
that I was going to make the other one, it only made sense
to sell the green one and make an offer.
The car had a broken
motor mount and I had to drive it home gingerly, but covered
almost 1900 miles in 2 days. Other than the mount, the
transmission was hitting the tunnel and the gauges would all
of a sudden decide to go to the full right hand position
several times. I drove through some incredible rain
storms and let's just say that the top wasn't adjusted
properly.......It was a great drive and I will always be
able to say "I drove it home".
My plan for this car is
to have a very fast, reliable and good handling car. I
don't intend to keep it stock or .... uninteresting.
I've changed things one at a time instead of just taking the
thing apart and ending up with a completed car. I've
gone through 3 sets of wheels/tires and different brakes, 2
iterations of stereo etc.
