There are few things as exciting as buying a new car. And why not register those moments for posterity? After all, they make for nice promotional material.
With that in mind, this is a short series of obvious dealer-sponsored captures. One can sense the photographer’s indication of “Act natural!” To which some had more success than others. And I suspect a shot or two may even have a salesman posing as a ‘buyer.’
Not that it matters much. Each of these shots is a good reflection of their times. They’re also a reminder of the joy that is felt when those keys are handed over.
