Steel Rainbow

Karma announced her August Photo Hunt in mid-July which played right into my hands. The weekend after her announcing the hunt would include things in the colors of the rainbow, the Syracuse Nationals rolled into town with over 7,000 hot rods, classic and muscle cars in every color the automotive industry has produced over the last 100 years. There is still time to join Karma’s Photo Hunt as she is taking submissions until this Sunday, August 28, 2011.

1. Red GTO.  A classic Pontiac GTO with a hefty 328 cu. in. V-8 under the hood.  (cu. in. means cubic inches).

Bonus (kind of) as this was taken by a fellow alum at the luncheon cruise during my high school’s alumni weekend earlier this month.

    A fine series of shining colored cars. A boys dream that never ends. In particular I like the bulletholes in the blue Frenchy.
    What a nice couple 🙂

    Yes, I did kind of have a guess where you were going with your photo hunt this time around! A most unique presentation of the rainbow! (I’ll take one of those red GTO’s, ok? 😉 )
    Nice bonus pic too – I’ll count it as “self” portrait since I’m thinking the composition of the shot was yours.

  4. These are great… excet for the GTO. GTOs always remind me of my ex (*gag*), he used to own a GTO Judge.

    Wow! Always amazing to see what colors cars COULD be if we wanted them to (I have a blog post in waiting, with photos, of our country’s usual dull car colors).

  11. No arguing with the collection of rainbow colours here.. Very nice indeed, and I’d quite happily drive away in any of them… even the purple one… but the GTO would be my first choice…

    Very cool choices. I love the orange coupe image best of all, but something in me is drawn to that yellow Pontiac. D’you think I was a cab driver in a previous life? Or maybe a hotrodder. Yeah, that’s it.
