Hello, photog here

Hey folks. I currently don't have a car this group would find interesting (altho I have owned a few). I love cars, but I am in "practical" mode these. I joined, as a photographer, to keep up with the latest meetups and shows.

Just what we need...

Another photographer!
We welcome all here.

Welcome to the site, if your car rolls somebody likes it.
I heard Samir say he was going to start a mini-van club...

lol! I already know of 3! And if it's just a van club, make that 4.

I wonder how it must have been in the 70s with all those cool vans rolling around. You don't see vans at all anymore.

It was what was going on *inside* the van that was
more interesting than the outside.

Go buy a roll of shag carpet in a gaudy color, some
star shaped skylights, a waterbed, mini-bar and
an 8-track with some JBL speakers and I'll tell you
how to get started. What happens after that is
up to you.

Oh-yeah, you will need a "If the van is rocking"
bumpersticker to complete the look.

I still think you should install a loud speaker with the ice cream truck music playing. I mean you. Already have the party favors! Haha

I used to have not one but 2 ice cream trucks!
Big loudspeakers and music to boot.
It's amazing that you can tune the music out
after the first 400 times you hear it!

Well, I currently drive a 2004 Mitsubishi Galant ES-R. Only one dealer in California offered the "R" version. Basically it means a tint window job and custom wheels.

Here you go Samir. Heres a few I took back in 1978 at a world of wheels using a disc camara.





Pictures are 3.5 x 3.5. Could not take good pixs in doors. But hey its all the camara a kid could get.
