Okay it’s a cat not a car but I’m allowed some fun. …Mike.
This Toyota Matrix has to be the most feminine customization I’ve seen since the Mini that used to run around Southgate that had lace antimacassars on the seatbacks. That’s not a criticism – more power to the ladies!
Anyway, yesterday evening we headed up to the new Moxies at Hunt Club and Riverside and what did we see parked outside the T&T Chinese supermarket but this eye-catcher. Check out the interior too!
This cool Lincoln Continental low-rider lurks on a quiet Barrhaven backstreet…
It was a good showing at Kanata this week despite the threat of rain. Corvettes, Mustangs, Novas, Chevelles, rat rods, Barracudas, Camaros, etc.
There was also a Lotus Seven, a Can-Am Spyder trike, and a Sunbeam sports car.
I spotted this one cycling on a back-street near Strandherd and Woodroffe.
More cool cars and bikes for your enjoyment from this week’s Kanata Cruise. My favourite car was the Pontiac Solstice. I’m pleased with the close-up of the old Cadillac because I got detail in the highlights and the shadows but you probably don’t care about technical things like that – just enjoy the sumptuous blue interior. Check out the ‘tash on the guy riding the Harley Davidson doesn’t he look cool? It’s hard to get good general shots of the shoot with the people milling around. I’m pleased with the way the shot of the Barracuda brings across the sunset atmosphere of this cruise. Anyway, I hope you enjoy the pictures.
It’s the first time I’ve been able to get to the Kanata Cruise this year. Took a bunch of pictures of the cool cars and bikes – now I have to edit and process them all. From the preview screen on the back of the camera it looks like I’ve got some good shots – let’s hope they look as good when I get them up on the computer monitor this evening.
It wasn’t the biggest turnout ever but pretty good – I guess the forecast rain put some people off but it was a nice evening. Hazeldean Mall is a great spot. There was a good selection: a Ferrari, a cool Pontiac Solstice – usually I prefer the looks of the Saturn Sky but this one was very nicely done, Meteor, Camaros (old and new), Barracuda, a bunch of nice old coupes, and many many more as they say in the infomercials.
There were plenty of cool cars and bikes at the Merrickville Cruise and Shop on the 11th July. The sheer number of cars and people meant that it wasn’t going to be a great day for photography but that meant I could relax and simply the enjoy cars for their own sake and grab shots as the opportunity arose.
Had a great day out with the Eastern Ontario Trail Blazers on the 27th June for their trip up The Gorge near Burnstown. Chris Packham kindly invited us along for a ride in his Jeep. I wasn’t a very well-behaved guest because I spent more time walking with my camera than riding in his Jeep – I hope he wasn’t offended. There was a good selection of cars – Jeep TJs, JKs, and a YJ, a Ford Explorer, a Suzuki Samurai, and a Toyota Landcruiser. It was impressive the way that the little Suzuki kept up with the Jeeps. I always liked the Samurai.
I must point out that these guys were very sensible and safety conscious – it’s only my photography that makes it look like they were charging around the bush!
