It’s Another “Name that Car” Contest

Today’s Post by Joe Farace

How I made this shot: The camera I used is almost as obscure (although it wasn’t at the time) as the car; it was a Samsung GX-1S that used Pentax K-mount lenses. Lens used was a smc Pentax-DA 12-24mm F4 ED AL [IF] lens at 16mm. Program mode exposure was 1/750 sec at f/8 and ISO 200.

I photographed this stack of cars at a recycling center for (mostly) imported cars that is/was located near Eaton, Colorado. When I talked to the yard’s owner about the car, he said only one person (at that time) who visited the yard had been able to identify this particular car and model. I got it wrong too.

Today’s contest is simple: You need to name the manufacturer and model of the car that’s stacked atop this VW bus. The first person to “Name that Car” by responding via the Contact page (no other form of contact will be valid for the contest) above will be the winner.

Hint: The manufacturer and model of this car, although not this particular car, has appeared in one of the “Our Cars” series of posts that appear here from time to time.

The Prize with be a LensPen Elite for cleaning smudges on lenses or filters. I keep one of them in all my camera bags and backpacks. LensPen has a retractable natural hair brush that’s useful for knocking off chunks of dust from your photo gear and has a soft chamois-like tip on the other end for removing smudges from lenses. The carbon based cleaning compound it uses reduces electrostatic charges that can attract dust to a lens’s surface and replenishes itself after each use. Since it doesn’t require cleaning fluid or lens tissue, a LensPen creates no trash.

Yes, LensPen is one of this blog’s sponsors, in fact they are its oldest sponsor and I want to thank them for their support. I have been using LensPen’s wonderful products for more than 20 years, long before I had any of my blogs.
