The cars were what was on the street, not was I was actually out to shoot. Actually, we learned that the Olds is named "Connie". '62 Cutlass Convertible. All original, and in surprisingly good shape. Owned by a kid who works at the bar at Cain's, who had a whole pizza by himself to eat and was wearing his (or someone's) purple FFA jacket. The interior looked pretty clean. It sounded fantastic. The passenger side was a bit rougher. I thought it was sweet.

Cain's, by the way, is a must for any music fan. Everyone who is anyone has been there.

^ No, it was a homeless kid we found wandering around. We tasered his tongue right before we took that shot, then left him a bottle of MD 20-20.

Well, I guess if I was that kid and I had a dad like YOU, I would drink MD 2020 to.

Since neither is true, you'll stick to beer from the Coke cooler:

Some nice shots and subjects Qbn. When I passed thru, I was traveling light and only had a pocket cam with me. What is that Art Deco building center left?
