These were done 3 nights ago when
Classic Car Club of America
visited Tonopah for the evening.
I did the requisite Pano with the
Nikon and then
spent about 40 glorious minutes making these.
40 minutes was all I got and as
I finished the final
shot a guy behind me was revving up his Packard
about to run over me if I didn't get out of the way.
The CCCA is a rich man's club.
Only cars that
were rare and "fine" when they were made
between 1925 and 1948 are allowed. I didn't
park the '39 Ford in the group! No jalopies
allowed thank you.

The exception is the little BumbleBee
It's owner is a local guy but it was really a
neat little car to photograph. He didn't park
it with the Packards and Cadillac's either.
A little closer than my Ford but still not in
the mix with the snooty full classic's.

Hope you had some fun looking at
LBB & Co. meniscus compares nicely with 2
other lenses that come to mind readily. My
9" Series V Pinkham & Smith, and my 12" Struss.
I paid $1300+ for the Pinkham and
the Struss. The LBB was $48. It suffers the
same fate as the '39 Ford does surrounded by
Packards and Lincolns.
