I stumbled upon some cool stuff.
I had been out that far east once previous and had remembered what looked to be a little old car shop on the one road out there, so I decided to check it out this time. Boy, was I in for a surprise.
Sitting in the grass under a tree, for at least ten years as I was told, was this mint Alfa Romeo Montreal. Not only is it my favorite Alfa, but it was my first time seeing one in person. I will admit I had a bit of a fan girl moment. The best part is that its for sale. The bad part is that the owner is asking 50k as she sits.
This was also my first time seeing a 510 in person. In my favorite color too!
I know you all know what that Mini is, but if you look closely at the plate of the car on the left, you’ll see its from France. It just so happens its the most French car ever made, the 2CV. Some type of van version I guess.
I ran out of film at this point, but along with those pictured above, there were two Karman Ghias, a P1800, and under the cover in the photo above was an Austin Healey 3000 Mk.II. This was the stuff tucked away in the back. Out front there were a bunch of mid nineties Saabs, BMWs, and Mercs. As well as a white ‘62 Cadillac Eldorado convertible, for sale. Some of you might remember as well that I saw an Alpina Z8 on the way there. I posted about that on Facebook.
This was taken on what remained of the front straight of the old Bridgehampton Raceway, that has now been turned into a golf course. I’m on the right, and my buddy is on the left.
This was about as close as I got to the lighthouse. I had never been there before only to show up, take one picture, and drive right back home. Why? Because the whole trip was never about the light house, it was about the cars. The roads just before the light house were the stuff out of dreams, and myself nor my friend could wait to get right back out there for some spirited driving.
I love cars.
Also, for all of you camera guys out there, these were taken with my Olympus OM-2S, using a 50mm 1.8 Zuiko, and Ektar 100.
