365-38 British Steel

 When I was younger I was a big fan of small European cars. I owned a Triumph and a Fiat at one time. Big American cars and trucks were the norm where I lived. I certainly liked American cars, especially muscle cars, but I loved driving the Euros.  There is a “foreign” car parts dealer in an alley off of the main road in my town. I’m not sure if they are in business anymore but they still have a few parts cars lying around like this MGB GT. I used to like going to this store to buy parts (which was often) because it was so different from going to a NAPA store or something similar which catered more to American iron. Going off of the main drag into this alley to buy parts among all of the MG’s and Mini-Cooper’s and Austin-Healey’s was like entering a secret society. BMW’s were still just BMW’s, a drivers car, not a marque one bought just because they are expensive, like most do now.   As the title suggests, you can’t look back, but I did enjoy that time. I went a little wild in processing today with Topaz Adjust and orton effect to try to jazz it up a little. Pentax K20D, DA55-300
