Thread: Asian Muscle Cars

  1. #1

    Default Asian Muscle Cars

    My childhood dream cars. More character and soul than modern day super cars?
    You be the judge.

    C&C welcomed. Thank you for viewing.

    These were pretty popular in the 70's and 80's in Aussie for those who did not yearn for a V8. My little brother loved his for so long :-)

    Great photos.

    Wasn't easy, had to ask around in forums, then eventually someone knew someone who had one and the rest is history.

    I'm not exactly old... But i loved that celica the first time i saw one a few years back. Gives the "muscle car" feeling. I like the slanted shot from the ground...

    Wow really beautiful esp. pic2, curious how u shot the car turning in motion with blurred bg..

    Feels like the R side car in pic#1 is bit too distorted though and vignetting on it a bit too heavy?

    Hi redmonsoon,

    Thanks for the comments. I agree, heheheh... distortion really quite bad as my WA lens was wide open. The motion shots are rigged with clamps and a rod attached to the car, camera is fired via remote.

    very nice. the spiral effect especially.
    i like these cars too..
    but they are not muscle cars.
    it was the trend to shape the cars in these styles in the 70s and 80s. curvy and sporty looking.
