If you use any of these photos for commercial purposes I assume you'll discuss that with me

These were shot with a Nikon D70 - using lens (1) AF-S Nikkor 18-70 mm 1:35-4.5G ED, or (2) AF Nikkor 70-300mm telephoto, or after 5 June 2006, (3) AF-S DX Zoom-Nikkor, 55-200 mm f/4-5.6G ED. They were modified for web posting using Adobe Photoshop 7.0

The original large-format raw files are available upon request.

American Glory
Topic: Geometric Shapes
American Glory
Metal work - the shape of America in its glory days - a classic Cadillac fin, and the fender of the 1949 Buick Super Sport Convertible Eight - side by side on the lot at Frank Corrente Classic Cars on Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood. Actually, it's Frank Corrente's Cadillac Corner at 7614 Sunset - as featured in a Sports Illustrated video ("Watch Swimsuit Model Yesica Toscanini in her photo shoot at Frank Corrente's Cadillac Corner!"). The fin is a 1959 Cadillac Coupe Deville with the original "Woodrose" exterior, and inside, the original rose "Coronado" cloth with rose metallic leather trim. Wow. But it's been sold, so you can't have it. The Buick is still available.

Six new photos of the Buick were added to the parent site, Just Above Sunset, Monday, September 11 - they rolled it out front and put the top down. That new page is here.
