This photo was captured at the 23rd Annual Hot Rod & Custom Car Summer Car Series held on July 8, 2017 in the Hooters, San Mateo parking lot (Albuquerque, NM). It shows a hood ornament from a beautifully restored vintage Pontiac roadster that was among the many cars, trucks and motorcycles on display at this car show. This is part of a series of car shows held annually in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Indeed, on any given summer weekend in Albuquerque you are likely to have two or more car shows being held somewhere in the city. A great way to carry on the Route 66 tradition in Albuquerque!
Camera: Pentax K-x and vintage Tokina RMC 35-135mm F:4-4:5 lens. This 12.4-megapixel DSLR can be found on the used camera market for less than $200. I purchased the Tokina lens on eBay for $5.00!
