Dashboards

I love to photograph dashboards when I go to car shows. They display a level of quality we rarely see anymore and I like to fantasize about what it would be like to drive some of these cars and watch the gauges operating. How many of them can you identify?

A Packard ?
The 60's Mopar is similar to one owned by Ward Cleaver.

It's a Chrysler Imperial, but I don't know what year, other than late '50s.

Good documentation. Do you get close ups too, like the font on numbers and words on dials and such.

I like to see tiffs and stuff on numbers.

Just back from Prudhoe Bay, IMO it was really worth the trip, AK is a beautiful place & you need lots of time to take it all in. I'm looking forward to returning & exploring some places i didn't have time to ride.RIP Ron Melton

That one kinda reminds me of my 9000 but it was in the shop so much I never really got to know it. I know they advertise the SAAB dash as being inspired by their fighter jets.

I try not to touch the car and I stand far enough away to get the shot but not make the owner nervous so it's hard to get the detail I want sometimes.
