New, looking old – more classic cars
Thought for the day….” It is better to be looked over than overlooked” (Mae West).
“If you focus on results, you will never change. If you focus on change, then you will get results”.
Lucky timing with the camera recently and a case of being in the right place at the right time. There has been a rally of Ford Model A cars in the Otago region recently, and I just happened to be at the village of Cardrona when the cars were also there. Over 4.8 million Model A cars were made between 1927 and 1932 , the car being a replacement for the famous Ford Model T. One version of the car even featured a V8 engine. Prices ranged from USD 385 up to USD 1400. Interestingly, it was the first car to feature safety glass in the windshield.
Two of the cars are seen here, outside the famous Cardrona Hotel. Originally a gold-rush village, it now sits at the base of a ski resort. A disused (gold) mineshaft can be seen inside the hotel bar. From here, to the left of the photo, the road climbs up the Crown Range, reaching a height of 1119m, before descending towards the tourist town of Queenstown. Due to the bad light that day, the photo was converted to black and white, then changed to sepia, to give it a 1930s look.
and another photo….some of the 20 000 plus runners in the Stockholm marathon…
