This is such a neat picture, there is nothing to make it look like it was taken recently. Very cool. :tu:

His technique makes the pic look vintage. Nicely done.

Humm, I should go through my scans of mid 70s pics and take the yellow out.

Any chance of getting some close-up pics of the wheel/fender clearance?

Trying to figure out if a 15x7 zero offset with a 175/55-15 will tuck or not. 8)
