I saw this while exiting a VA Cemetery recently. Makes an unlikely couple, eh?
I like the W123 benz and have always liked them. To me it is a classic up there with the Volvo 240. The X-Car I am mixed about. I sat in a Buick Skylark(like the one in the pic) in a local junk yard years ago and it was roomy for the driver(I am 6 ft 1 in tall). There is a person at my work with an 82 Olds Omega which despite being turd brown, looks pretty good
The Skylark looks like an early-birdie with its outward-placed parking lamps.
Paul, is this the least-commented CC outtake ever?
I don’t keep those records. Hint: Your original shot made the cars so small as to be almost unrecognizable. I cropped the photo quite a bit, but the Buick is still too small. If you want a shot to be successful, the key elements need to be much more visible, unless you’ve just snapped a Duesenberg SJ on the road.
Next time, I will try to make sure that I get more details, my own camera (so I don’t have to bug my mom to use her phone, and time, for that matter.
I blew up the pic just to attempt to discern what the subject was. Is it the conjunction between the Buick & the MB, the fact that the gentleman’s sweater is the same color as the Buick, or am I missing something else??
