    Default Z06 Spy Photos, Part Deaux...

    Hi folks -

    I returned from the Bloomington Gold in St. Charles, and I have a couple of spy shots to share.

    Here are a couple of shots of an older Lambo Countach - hate the wing but this car sounded really nice (I still like V8's sound better).

    The car was super clean, and the fellow waved back at my son and I when we went past him - he turned left ino the Lambo dealership and we went on back to the gold field.

    If you could only go to one Corvette function a year, I would make the Gold the one you go to. Hands down - you will get your Corvette Fix!

    I have several more pictures I took at the Gold - I will share them with you as time permits.

    best regards -

    Do I recall you posting somewhere that you are a train-nut (or something like that?)
    Mr. Schroder is a train nut. He has vast catalogues of train pics. We go on rail-fan-and-photo-expeditions nearly every weekend. We wrestle for who gets to take the train pics- I'm the camera nut, he's the train nut
    You want to put some up ? I like those cool angle/compression shots like you took in the other thread
    (Hey -its your thread, you can hijack it if you want )

    Hi Tammy -


    Yup - certified train nerd.

    I used to take my son out "railfanning" when he was young - we live near the main east west CHI / LA route of the old Santa Fe, and near the Burlington Northern's Galesburg hump yard.

    Most of the pics I took while hunting tains were on slide film (the magazines liked that format...) I used to submit my pics to TRP - without much luck...

    I will hunt up a couple of prints and scan them...

    Thanks for the comments on the spatial compression - that's an old train picture trick...lol

    best regards -

    Hi invinceablevett -

    Well - kinda...

    The Cajun spelling for "doo" is deaux - as in Pappadeaux etc. In Chicago, they pronouce it "dokes".

    It's a sort of joke to me. Perhaps me alone...lol.
