Old Town Temecula Rod Run

I used to go to the Old Town Temecula Rod Run when it was first starting, and then for a few years. I don’t go anymore. It is just too crowded, and violent. That’s a shame, because I enjoyed walking through the old classic cars and catching some color in my camera. Here’s a shot from a few years ago taken on a regular day, not during the rod run. I changed the license plate in Photoshop.

2001 Plymouth Prowler

I was in the showroom of my favorite Chrysler dealer early one morning, and Glenn had his Prowler parked right in the middle. The light wasn’t perfect, there was a glare off one of the lights. I couldn’t resist taking a photo. I always carry a camera. That morning I had my daily shooter, the Canon S120. This little camera never lets me down. It’s more than capable of taking publishable images. Back to the car – I am actually not sure what year it is. It could be a 2001 model. I remember when these were sold new. I thought they were kinda funny lookin’ and didn’t think they would sell that well. Now, they are collectible. I should’ve bought one! Well…. maybe not. I would’ve had to pay storage costs, upkeep, etc. Oh well. They are fun to look at and imagine yourself driving one.
