View 345: Goodbye to Summer

It was a good summer.

It started off with a tour of Syracuse at night beginning in Franklin Square.

I had a lot of fun covering the Syracuse Crunch Summer Street Hockey series which included the annual Media Game.  The winning team included members of the media and Crunch front office.

While photographing with a remote camera at ESTA Safety Park Dragstrip, I caught one of my favorite pre-race preparations….the burnout!

I ended the summer at the Northeast Mustang Meet photographing my favorite automobile. The Ford Mustang grew up in the 1960s ending in 1969 with the Mach 1 with its 390 cu. in. (6.4 liter) V8 engine and Ramair shaker hood.

While we are talking about the 1960s, let us end summer correctly with A Summer Song by Chad and Jeremy from 1964, the year the Ford Mustang was born.
