Been a While, Pics of the Car (56K Die In A Fire)

Postby josh99ta » Tue Jan 09, 2007 9:52 pm

Haven't posted many if any pics of the new GTO, figured I'd go ahead and throw these up as I went through enough hell to get them. :cwm11:

The Car:

2006 Spice Red Metallic GTO



The Camera:

Nikon D80 10.2MP dSLR w Nikkor 18-135mm lens.



The Wheels:

Complete Custom Wheel (CCW) 505As, 19x8.5 w 245/35s (F), 19x10 w 275/30 (R), no rolling or cutting fenders, no rubbing



The Story:

Normally I dont include a story but the ending on this one was pretty good so I'm including it this time.



I did a quick detail job on the car and of course it starts spitting rain just as I finish... but I was bound and determined to get some shots. Or so I thought. After two hours of driving around running from the rain and trying to look for a place to shoot with clear skies I give up and head back to my place which it had finally cleared up over... so I think it's not an ideal backdrop but I head to the local park to get some shots. I get there, start shooting, and not 5 or 6 shots into the shoot I hear a "splat" on the car twice then feel one on my shoulder. "Great, quarter sized rain drops... no wait... WHAT THE HECK!?!"



Thats right folks, not rain. After two wasted hours and finally getting a location for some non-rain shots a nice little bird decides to crap on my roof, my back window, and my shoulder! "You gotta be kidding me!" I had been pretty mad about Mother Nature's cruel sense of humor thus far but after this I just had to laugh. I pressed on and snapped these shots as I haven't gotten many daytime pics of the car. Not the best locale but you guys will have to deal with it as it's all the weather allowed.



Some of these were set-up shots, some where just shots I snapped playing around with camera settings that came out alright.

You like it? It reminds me of a 1995 Mustang, with a few changes. Bah, I am just not a fan of that car. Or the owner. :D

No no, he likes poop on his shoulder.

And yes, I said the same thing -- that Cobalt looks like a Mustang.
