I'm in Love with My Car, Part 1 - Men Exposed


I was playing "A Night at the Opera" by Queen the other night, and the song "I'm in Love with My Car"  inspired today's series.  A snip from the lyrics:

                                                        The machine of a dream
                                                        Such a clean machine
                                                        With the pistons a pumpin'
                                                        Аnd the hubcaps all gleam
                                                        When I'm holding your wheel
                                                        Аll I hear is your gear
                                                        With my hand on your grease gun
                                                        Oooh, it's like a disease, son
                                                        I'm in love with my car
                                                        Got a feel for my automobile
                                                        Get a grip on my boy-racer rollbar
                                                        Such a thrill when your radials squeal

    1. Queen should have used the gear stick in the lyrics. Missed opportunity.

  2. This is a great image. I did a little restoration on it, and plan to colorize it later.
