  8. More recent scans, Praktica LTL with the 50mm Carl Zeiss Jena Pancolar lens + Ferrania P30 film
    I looked back to check whether I'd posted these and don't believe I did, but apologies for any repeats.



  9. Great set of car and truck photos, Ricochetrider. I remember that model of Monte Carlo. In my area most of them were sold with the basic 305 V8 two barrel. Most of the 350 V8 engines went to Cameros, Corvettes, and full size cars and pickups.

  14. Thanks, Mike! A buddy of mine had one of these Monte Carlos, with what I think was the 350 in it. I was working 2nd shift at a local hospital then, and me + a handful of buddies would get together after work to go cruising etc. I recall that car being a bit of a hoot. This one lives nearby my home and I really admire its satin black paint job. Many of the "Film Ferrania" folks don't like it when their fave film gets overly contrasty, but I happen to like that particular quality in this film stock. These deep blacks are just crazy, and this car is the perfect subject to show that off. OTOH, I've drawn a few compliments from that crew on the shot of the old rusting Ford truck for its tonal range.
  15. Nice photo. Interesting too. Do you mind if I ask what part you played in this activity?
  16. That's a 1977 model. The last year before GM down-sized and squared-off their whole line. Major changes in '78, esthetics wise.

  17. Yes, unfortunately with the downsize GM saddled Chevrolet with the inadequate Turbo Hydromatic 200, which couldn't handle the torque of a 350 or even a 305. However, Buick with its subcompact Skyhawk still got a Turbo Hydromatic 350 to go with its 3.8 V6.
    Back on topic now- great photos everyone and a great start to our weekly thread. Looking forward to seeing more.

  19. The "What Camera are you Using This Weekend?" thread reminded me that I might have a few archived images from my Celtic 28mm f 2.8.

    while not a macro, the 28mm Celtic can still get pretty close, SRT 101, Plus-x
