What a pretty old truck. I believe all vehicles from this era were black so I'm sure the candy apple red is a new color for this old beauty.

It is a cool old truck. I like the colorful red image. Have a happy day!

Delightful. I favor the black and white and the sepia, they are so stunning but then red isn't a color I like so much either. But all excellent captures.

My preference is the b&w. I like the red, but the very green bg is a bit distracting. I find that quite a but with greenery.

Birdman said...

I say keep to the black and white on this one. Color complicates it for me.

interesting!
I am very happy, when a group comes together, that comments each other!

Great job in Photoshop. Fantastic results! I just ordered Photoshop Elements 13. When I got back from Alaska I downloaded the upgrade to my iMac called "Yosemite". It took 7 hours (DSL in my area isn't too fast). I'm still learning how to navigate the new version iPhoto. I don't like change, so it's been hard for me.

see you there! said...

I enjoy seeing the different versions of a photo that you come up with. Of course you probably guessed that the b/w is my favorite.

You're doing well with Elements! Re the original red color - very unlikely. As the ol' anti-Semite, Henry Ford, used to say: "You can have any color you want, so long as it's black." This looks to be a well-restored Model A.

VP said...

The excellent original is enough for me!

Mary Hone said...

Great old car, love the effects too.

PerthDailyPhoto said...

This old beauty looks good whichever way you've shown it EG, although..... I do love the watercolour red :)

William Kendall said...

What a beauty!

Margaret Adamson said...

What a beauty. Now if you wsih to know which on I like the best, it is number 2- sepia.

Debbie said...

love these bad boys, let's go for a spin!!!

Andrea Priebe said...

Well, you are having fun and learning all kinds of new PS tricks. I like the red on the truck and who ever painted it did an awesome job. I too love vintage and I think by painting this truck red, they lost value, but it is still cool.

Wonderful photos of a classic.

Rose said...

I always wonder about paint colors, too...on old cars and trucks.

I have to say this is a beauty and you got a wonderful capture of it. But I do like the Sepia and B&W version best.

Judy said...

I'm always excited to look at an old truck. Looking at the black and white and sepia first made that bright red quite a surprise. I have pictures of my Grandfather in a truck like that one. Well done!

Gillian Olson said...

Great old truck and I agree that red is probably not original colour. I love the sepia version.

Sylvia K said...

What a great old truck it is indeed!! You do have so much fun, EG, and your blog is always a great way to start my day!! Hope your week is going well!!!

John @ Sinbad and I on the Loose said...

The owner did a great disservice to that car by painting it red. He obviously wanted to be noticed and get attention. I feel restored old cars should be done so as they originally came out from the factory. I think your sepia version came out the best.

RedPat said...

I like the B&W, EG!

Car wonderful, lovely!

cieldequimper said...

I'm glad I know it's red but I still prefer the sepia though!

Halcyon said...

I love black and white (especially for "old" stuff), but I have to admit, I like the original version best in this case.

Terri @ Coloring Outside the Lines said...

This is a wonderful old car (in any color), but I do like that red- snazzy!

Lmkazmierczak said...

A fine vintage truck...I hope it did come in red originally♪ http://lauriekazmierczak.com/z-sighting/

Jane Hards Photography said...

I do love sepia for certain subjects, and vintage vehicles alwasy look so classy in monochrome.

NatureFootstep said...

I love that old car. :) All versions is good. But I like the poster edges as it looks a little like a cartoon :)

Kay said...

I "vote" sepia with black and white a close second. The effects are nice but the first two compliment the subject especially well.

First pic is the one

Gemma Wiseman said...

A grand old beauty who looks impressive in all these colours.

Randy said...

I love the sepia version. Fun little truck.

Jack said...

I usually prefer color but here I like the sepia version.

Stephanie said...

I love all the version and this style of truck.

Yogi♪♪♪ said...

Who knows if red was an authentic color, it should have been if it was not.

Chandra Eswaran said...

Like'em all, Tina.
The truck is quite lovely.
Have a Wonderful Day!
Peace :)

I think some vintage cars WERE originally red. My father (who is 84) often tells the story of his very first car, which was a 1936 Ford. The car was bright red, and his father made him paint it because he didn't want a bright red car sitting in front of their house.
