20th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Artistic
Panic on Main Street

Some of the design details from the late 1950s cars were pretty crazy - they where like chrome & plastic sculptures from a bizarro, futuristic world! However, I think the tail lights of the 1957 Cadillac Coupe de Ville topped them all, especially for it’s Mohawk topped expression of surprise. I’ve photographed this beautiful barge of a car abandoned in the New Hampshire woods a few times, but this is the first time I encountered a restored vintage model at a car show. By the way, this is the same look I got from every girl I asked to the prom in high school!
