Thematic Photographic–Multiples.

This theme is the perfect showcase for my multiple old Ford LTDs.

THE TWOS

Old Blue (1969) and Christine II (1970)

BattleCruiser III (1972) and Old Blue (although I no longer have the BattleCruiser).

Alphonse (1978) and Old Blue (Alphonse is technically a Mercury Marquis, but that’s just a Ford LTD with a Mercury badge on it).

THE THREES

BattleCruiser, Christine and Old Blue

THE FOURS

Old Blue, Christine, BattleCruiser and Big Green (1972) (who is now brown.  go figure.)

How long does it take you to drive all these cars to location and rearrange them to photograph? Sure, I know the park is near your house, but that's a lot of driving over, parking, walking home, and getting the next car -- then in reverse when you're through with the shoot.
That's a lot of work!

And how did you get that cool overhead shot?

I like the jazzy style you displayed your trusty old Fords!

I was going to say, can two be a multiple? But then you kindly multiplied them!!

Great shots!

Great cars, Max. How do/did you afford to run them all or are they just for show?

Lisa - Since it's so close, it takes me about a half hour to get all 4 of them there and another half hour to get them back. I got the overhead shot from a gondola ride at one of the ski resorts, I can't remember which. I drove one of them and my little brother drove the other (no, I'm not crazy enough to walk all the way home from the canyons).

Bob - I have them all registered and insured as Hobby Cars. registration is $10 a year (no emissions or safety inspections either) and insurance is about $11 a month (each). As Hobby Cars, I'm not supposed to drive them except to car shows/meets, and once a month or so to keep everything running. With the 4 of them, and my daily driver, it's easy to keep in those guidelines.
