    I visited the Carolina Auto Show in Charlotte, NC and grabbed a few pictures. Without a tripod it was tough going, but I managed to get a few good shots. You can see more of the images HERE.

    #3 looks like a "out-of-my-price-range" kind of car.

    Next to that car was a Masserati and an Astin Martin. That entire section was "out of my price range" :)

    That whole auto show was probably filled with "touch me and you die" cars.

    Actually most of the cars were just "normal" ones. There were 2 Porshes and one of them was roped completely off so you could not touch it.

    They also had the GT500 locked so you could climb in, something that aggravated me to no end, since I will never spend that kind of money on a Ford.

    It looked like your shutter speed had to be relatively slow since the lighting was poor, so great job having a steady hand!

    I agree if I had a lot of money looking to buy a car it likely wouldn't be american. I might as well by a fancy european one like a lotus or something. :wink:

    If I had the money for a car like that...I actually would probably get the Ford GT. Those things are beautiful machines.
    I hope you guys know what that is..lol

    Here is some of the data from the pictures:

    Mustang:
    Exposure Time 0.04s (1/25)
    Aperture F/5.0
    ISO 1600
    Focal Length 23mm

    The other pictures varied from .2s (1/5) to .0666s (1/15) exposure time and I dropped to ISO 100.

    I have lusted over the Ford GT a since I first saw it in pre-production. OMG, Awesome! But 150K will buy a lot of D3's, Phase one backs and looooong glass. Priorities, what can I say.

    toteki (or anyone),

    I am going to try and make it to a drag race Friday, weather permitting, and if you have ideas on some interesting perspectives for cars, let me know and I'll try them out. I usually get back into the pit area so I can get closer to the cars that way.

    Saw your reply to late, but I am curious for your shots !

    Should be able to get some nice shots of the cars seeing the fact you could go in the pit area !

    ;)
