All that Jazz


Another image from the car show in town this past July.

Almost all the cars had their front hoods open to show off their engines.
This one goes to the
1948 English Ford Anglia from my last post.

I have absolutely no clue what any of this 'jazz" is.
All I know is that it does NOT look like this under MY hood!

Wished the outside of my car was this clean. Love all the chrome, definitely a mean machine. Great shot Ginnie, the clarity and details are exceptional.
Ginnie Hart: I know, John. Those guys are fanatics! grin Thanks.

lol it doesn't look like that under my hood either!! nice shot Ginnie!! and why are you laughing before you even get to my site? lolol
Ginnie Hart: I always get my education when I go to one of these shows, Elaine...about the OWNERS and their lifestyle! And yes, I'm almost always laughing at/with you...just because of your great sense of humor. I think your outlook on life is delightful! smile
Underneath my hood is grime and oil!
Ginnie Hart: I'm guessing that's true of almost all of us, Larry! A car well lived in! smile

There was a art show this past weekend in Alpharetta, did you go? I been to one one year but they don't like people taking pictures.
Ginnie Hart: No, Ti, I wasn't at that art show...in fact, I didn't even know about it. I feel really out of it these days! sad But I did ask someone at this car show if it was okay to take pictures and he was like "Bring it on!" They all seemed to pop their buttons over someone photographing their cars!

That is one clean engine. I like the mix of color and chrome.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Sherri. Makes you wonder if they ever drive the car...other than to and from car shows!
Ginnie: All I know is that it does NOT look like this under MY hood!
VZ: I certainly hope it doesn't, Ginnie. LOL
Ginnie Hart: You can say that again, Viktor! smile I would feel not very lived in!

Technically, Ginnie...these are what is known as the "innards".

This might be the best innards shot of the engine compartment of a motor vehicle that I have ever seen.

[Are you, perhaps, a closet petrol-head?]
Ginnie Hart: You are very kind about these innards, Ray. Someone else asked if I might be a petrol-head. HA! Not on your life!

Lol. I will reaaaaly like under my 'bonnet' to look like this.
Fine, fine picture here Ginnie smile
Ginnie Hart: So true, SAVO, so true...but then, we wouldn't look lived in! smile Thanks!
quelle belle mécanique
Ginnie Hart: Merci, O-P. Merci.

No engine from 1948 should look that good, great shot Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: You are so right, Tony. No clogged arteries in this beast, for sure. smile Thanks.

I am pleased that not everything born in 1948 is decrepit Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: HA! Is there any hope for us, Chris?? grin
A wonderfully restored engine!
Ginnie Hart: Yes, indeed! Thanks, Wim.
My Ford Popular(cousin to this Anglia) didn't have all those shiny extras underneath the bonnet ... It's not fair ;-)richard
Ginnie Hart: None of my cousins had them either, Richard, so you're not alone. grin Thanks.
Ah that brings back memories Ginnie. As a lad I was intrigued by the classic Hot Rods that were to be seen in the US and tried to get my hands on the plastic kits of them, acres of chrome everywhere and such amazing things done to them. Forty five years on and they still hold a fascination and this looks like a fine example of the classic car.
Ginnie Hart: It sounds like you have an idea then, Les, of what all this jazz is! Good for you! Thanks. smile

For a moment I thought you were a petrol head.Love the chrome
Ginnie Hart: You're not the only one who has thought this, Vintage. smile Thanks.
This engine just shouts testosterone! Nice image. All the best, Dave.
Ginnie Hart: HA! I think you have testosterone on your mind, Dave, judging by YOUR image today. grin The two go together. Thanks.
Well that isn't a bog standard Ford Anglia Engine! The original had a 933cc side valve engine with a top speed of about 65mph and took about 40 seconds to reach 50 mph!
Ginnie Hart: My guess is that none of these cars had standard engines, Bill, so I'm sure you're right. Just think how impatient we'd be today if it took 40 seconds to go from 0 to 50 mph! It reminds me of when I watch an action movie from 10-15 years ago and how s l o w it seems! MAN! What's happening to us!!

Always amazes me how enthusiasts manage to restore to this level of perfection. Great close up Ginnie ;o)
Ginnie Hart: You're so right, Mike. I'm guessing they're as bad as some photographers I know. grin Thanks.

It's a work of art in its own way. This obviously doesn't get used a lot!
Ingrid
Ginnie Hart: That's a good way to put it, Ingrid. It IS a work of art!

i like the title very much
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Kimera. It did seem to fit. smile
Bonita, bonita!!
Ginnie Hart: Muchas gracias, MA.
A great image of a wonderful engine Ginnie, not the original type as Bill says.
Ginnie Hart: HA! Not the original type at all, to be sure, Brian! And THANKS for trying the new template at your site. You're gonna LOVE LOVE LOVE it, as are the rest of us. smile

Anglia in its glory!- I can imagine a full jazz band using all the different, glittering instruments! The hearts of some men (and some women) may jump whilst looking at these fine cars and your car pics! I heard that some men love more their cars than their wives?
Ginnie Hart: Sad but true, Philine, on some men loving their cars more than...anything else in the world. Sigh. I wonder if some would say the same about some photographers? I sure hope not! Thanks, Philine, for always adding such insight and delight in your comments!

nice details and good lightning Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Danke, kind sir!
Ah now this is the bit I don't understand at all Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Then you and I are in the same boat, Chad! grin

Oh, Ginnie, you are a master for these kind of shots . FANTASTIC details, sharpness !!!
Ginnie Hart: You are always so complimentary, Mariana. Thank you!
Ha ha..The original engine was a long...long way short of looking like this. They have done wonders with it Ginnie. Excellent shot.
Ginnie Hart: These guys really know how to soup everything up, Ron! It amazes me. Thanks.
Wow you really got deep inside this one G!
Ginnie Hart: HA! But I didn't study one whit of it, Heather! It's all Greek to me. grin

This is an amazing shot MLS, I 'eat' this kind of things, I always want to know 'what's under the hood' grin
Smart spot for your signature.
I know you had fun with these pictures, ik had er graag bij geweest, misschien een andere keer.
Ginnie Hart: Next thing you'll tell me is that you'll be able to change the oil in our car! And if so, MLMA, I want you to teach ME how to do it. I've always wanted to learn. Why pay for it when I can do it myself! smile One day we'll go to one of these shows together. That will be a fun photo hunt!

Ginnie Hart: I should have thought of that myself, Maria! That's a cool transformer! smile

ahhh all-american engine at its best! (even though i am more of an import guy)
Ginnie Hart: You and me both, Liang. You couldn't pay me to buy an American car...yet. I've had a Honda Hybrid for 9 years now...first the Insight and now the Civic. I'm really partial to Honda. smile Thanks.
They should give you a job in the marketing section. Professional shot Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: HA! Flattery will get you everywhere, Albert. grin Thanks.
What a nice looking blower! I like engines =)
Ginnie Hart: I should would love knowing what that "blower" does, Brian!!! Thanks.

You can tell this car is loved very much, Ginnie. Very nice shot.
Ginnie Hart: I guess what we spend our money on does let others know what we love, Kay! Thanks. smile

i wouldn't know if it's like that under my hood...i've never looked!

btw...took at least 15 seconds to load this morning!
Ginnie Hart: HA! I never look either, David. Someone else does that for me!

I will be very glad if/when the administrators can get this loading issue fixed. It's even driving ME crazy! Hard to get used to!!! I must say that your patience deserves a prize! Thank you.

one classic, Ford Anglia... wow.

I like this photo
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Oscar, for stopping by and commenting. Merci!
It doesn't look like this under my hood, either. Not only that, it doesn't look like this under my car's hood!


(Oh! Looks like Elaine and I have the same warped sense of humor!)
Ginnie Hart: We all have a warped sense of humor, Linda! I love it. grin Thanks.
Red Hair Closet Petrol-Head tongue Wish my car engine looked like this.
Ginnie Hart: You at least got the red hair right, Fotografa. grin Thanks.
