More Sightings From Eli

Eli's Sightings

Back in July we featured a few sightings that were made by one of our younger readers, Eli R. He has been quite busy getting use to his new 35mm camera and it appears that he has found lots of great cars to practice photographing with it! Here is what he has to say about this batch of photographs – Well the film finally got developed! I’ve got 30+ sightings for you folks! These are the combination of two trips I took to take photos, sadly one trip was plagued with relentless rain so one or two of the photos are slightly out of focus, but alas, I still and very happy with the turnout of this bunch.


Sadly I will be off to college soon and I won’t be able to get too many more photos before then, so this may be my last submission for quite a while. But hopefully by travelling states over, I can find even more cars to photograph, that’s what I’m hoping. I love photography, cars, and this site, and I really hope the future holds more photos from me!


And as for the Junkyard in the photos, that was the day it was raining bad, and I would have asked to look around but I was out of film, the road there was all mud, and no one was home, so maybe thats a future trip.


So guys, what do you think of Eli’s photos? I for one am glad to see more young people getting into classic cars and film photography, both are hobbies that need more young people getting involved! I look forward to watching his skills grow and I want to encourage him to keep taking photos. Best of luck at school Eli!

        Gary from what I can remember the pickups from the late 50’s Chryslers sometimes used the same fins as the cars, similar to the 59 Chevy pickups which had the same tailgate as the trunk of the Impala wagons and sedans. This one could be around 1957 to 59.

    Great find, Eli. Really enjoy seeing all these old cars. Keep hoping someone will find my HS ’46 Mercury convertible one day. I’ll never get it out of my system.
