Too Much Of A Good Thing

Cover photo for the Back To The Fifties album
Back To The Fifties
328 photos
Trophies: 219
I guess when it's too big to handle, it's too big to enjoy. A week or two ago I posted a photo album of the Back To The Fifties event in St. Paul. This is an annual event that draws in excess of 11,000 collector cars every year. I tried to only take pictures of the vehicles I thought were particularly interesting and still ended up with 328 photos.
As a result, almost nobody has looked at this album. And those who have can't even get half way through it. I think I've had fewer people look at this album than any other album I've posted.
Of course, it is summertime, when people are outdoors instead of in front of the computer.
And we live in a busy society, where people don't have time to sit down and look at over 300 pictures on the computer.
It's too bad, though, because there were a LOT of interesting vehicles there. Some of the photos I got include a Packard convertible sedan from the classic period, Cadillacs, Studebakers, radical customs, flamed streetrods, gassers, a panel with a saloon in the back, a dog peeing on somebody's car and even a hotrod that looks like a traffic cone.
Even if I do say so myself, if you've got time, it's worthwhile going through this album.
But for those of you who do not have time, I understand.

You know, photos take FOREVER to look at on Motortopia! and I have a very speedy Lenovo T500. They need to get a different technology for viewing photos for sure. If you posted them on Picasa or Photo Bucket, people can click through them quickly and easily.

It looks like it was a great show with some awesome cars. Sure wish I could have been there. Your efforts posting the photos for your buddies here at Motortopia is appreciated.

Thanks, Kid!
