Pictures of a 1930 Ford Model A
Riverfront Cruise In, Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio
Why is the 1930 Ford Model A such a big deal? Well it was the car that John Dillinger used in one of the most famous getaways in American history. He knocked out the rear window and his tommy-gun was blasting away at the police. Maybe that is his ghost in there looking out the window!
Total production of Model A for 1930 was 854,263. There was a total of 10 different models and the price was between $433-$655.

What a beautiful car this 1967 GTO is. Still looking good in 2012! I took this picture with my Nikon D90 on August 22, 2011 at the Riverfront Mall Cruise-In, Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio. The ISO is 200 which is what looks great when using a Nikon. I shot the picture around 7pm which gave me some dramatic lighting.
I typically run and gun and very seldom use a tripod. I used to shoot a lot of cars with my 35mm Canon years ago, and would use a tripod if I was being paid for the pictures. In those days the picture of your car on drift wood was very cool! Always a winner!
Go to a car show and get some exercise walking around looking at the great cars!
Occasionally on a Monday night my friends and I will head up to Cuyahoga Falls and checkout the car show at the Riverfront Mall. I typically take my DSLR along to capture pictures of the cars. Sometimes I don't take my camera if I just need a break from the time it takes to capture all those great cars. Plus my friends leave me behind once I get started with the camera.
In 2007 I took a few pictures of a 1936 Ford. What a great looking car. They don't build them like that anymore. Lots of great details to be captured in every picture.
If you have never gone to a car show you should checkout a local show in your area. You get to spend sometime outdoors and remember back to another time when cars were not defined by big government or the price of gasoline.
The summer season is here in Ohio and time for me to get my camera ready for some great shots of car shows around the North East Ohio area. Here is one of my favorite pics from last year. A 1929 Ford, taken in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio, August 22, 2011.
Car shows are best enjoyed with your friends. Rich and Tom bring a wealth of knowledge about the various models years they love the best. There is always something to learn from them and the local history of cars and their owners.
