1967 Ford Mustang


One last image from the car show in town this past July.

This may be one of the most recognized car icons/logos in the world...well, at least in America!
I had fun "floating" it off the front grille of a
1967 Ford Mustang.

Run away with wild horses this weekend, if you can!

You did good, Ginnie.

Great composition, too.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Ray. I remember when I walked around campus in the early-mid 60s and saw these cars everywhere. They became a hit from the very beginning. Thanks.

such a beautiful shot of this well known car... makes me want to buy a mustang!!
Ginnie Hart: HA! Now that's advertising for you, Elaine. grin
It's an American classic!
Ginnie Hart: Yes, it is, Larry! A hit from the very first time it was made till now.

very nice Ginnie, one of my friends restores mustangs, planning a shoot with him soon.. should be fun
Ginnie Hart: Your friend restores them in Australia, Tony? Wow. It's the hobby of many a man over here in the States. So you're telling me it's a worldwide hobby?! Ford knows it hit a goldmine, then!

tonguetongue When this opened I said 'Mustang' so even in the Netherlands we have these great cars, one of my bosses back in 1972 had a Mustang, a green one, he would sometimes take me from one of his shop's to another, I was his freelance window dresser in that time.
What a car, after all these years I still remember it.
This is an outstanding composition, love the Black and Silver....
I will try to run away with wild horses, IF I can see them... wink
Een heel goed weekend voor jou ook MLS, IHVJ.
Ginnie Hart: I think this is one of the best things Ford ever did, MLMA. A goldmine for them. So glad you have memories of this because it makes my point that it IS a worldwide icon! Hope jouw ogen are still working okay. Doe voorzichtig.

The Mustang is very popular down under many clubs.You have a good weekend your self Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: So it does seem to be a worldwide icon then, Vintage. Thanks!

Well captured Icon. Your framing is fantastic smile
Ginnie Hart: You're a sweetheart, SAVO. Thanks.
Well there aint too much difference or usage between a horse and a car when you think about it.

Certinly there is no difference between so called car salesmen and the horse dealers of the wild west.

Ha! richard
Ginnie Hart: HA! Good point, Richard!! Thanks for the smile.
je suis stupéfait que tu sache à ce point faire le détail des voitures. tu es un génie de la photo de voiture, je te le dis
Ginnie Hart: Your words are very kind, O-P. It's funny but I'm not really a fanatic about cars at all, except making sure I have a good one that has good gas mileage (I drive a Honda Civic Hybrid). Merci!
Love the framing Ginnie. I agree the logo is one of the most recognized in the world.
Ginnie Hart: Ford has had a heyday with this one, Debola. smile Thanks.

a brilliant example of how to isolate detail. Superb.
Ginnie Hart: You're very kind, Rhys. I must say it was fun. Thanks.
This implies that the car travels like a racehorse. No car has a snail emblem Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Come to think of it, Chad, YOU'RE RIGHT! smile Thanks.

Hay que reconocer que este coche enamora, me acuerdo cuando lo vi por primera vez en la pelicula 60 segundos, nunca he tenido la oportunidad de ver uno de cerca.
Saludos.
Ginnie Hart: Muchas gracias, Alex. If you do ever see one of these up close and personal, you'll be even more enamored! smile

Oh yes - very American!
Ginnie Hart: It has made Ford proud, for sure, Chris. smile
Another one of the great plastic kits of the 60', I think it was made by Revell and you could also make as a dragster with an enormous red parachute hanging out behind it.

I do believe it was also a rather nice car. Nice detail shot Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: The memories you have, Les! grin Thanks for sharing them.

Of course, I've heard of the Ford Mustang but never seen the logo. They're a bit thin on the ground in the UK!
Ingrid
Ginnie Hart: A bit thin on the ground, Ingrid? That's a new expression for me. grin Thanks.
Even here where they were never more than a rarity on the road
Ginnie Hart: Ford really did come up with a winner then, Bill. Nice to see it has gotten around. smile

Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Klaus. So glad so many of you around the world have recognized it. Danke.

Mustang... The Wild Horse... Magnifique. I like, i have a dream ....
Ginnie Hart: HA! Merci, Oscar. Merci.
Mustang, one of my favorite car, especially the 1967
Ginnie Hart: I think it's a favorite of many, Christophe, judging by how many refurbish it as a hobby. Thanks.

Ginnie Hart: Magic, Rian. Magic. grin Thanks.
Well done Ginnie, you must have done a lot of work to get this image in the way you have.
Ginnie Hart: This one did take more time than I usually spend on an image, Brian, but once I got started, I couldn't stop. I could see it in my mind's eye! smile Thanks.

I never see one of these emblems without associating it with the first web site I design for a client. He restored mustangs. Nice capture.
Ginnie Hart: Awwwww. Thanks for sharing that, Sherri. smile
A fine image Ginnie..the work was well worth it.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Ron. It's my favorite of the series. smile

Ginnie Hart: I totally agree, Rafael. They've been laughing all the way to the bank since the day this model first came out! Thanks.

Great composition and very well presented. Have a nice weekend Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: It was my personal favorite of the series, Frida, so thank you. smile
Amazing again. Nice weekend Ginie.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Albert, and the same to you.
Ginnie,My brother owns a RED one...he loved this shot!! Cheers, HC
Ginnie Hart: Awww. Thanks for sharing that, HC. You just made my day! smile
You have a good eye for an image and composition. Lovely capture.

How many miles to the gallon? tongue
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Fotografa. I have no idea about this car's mileage, especially with the new ones today. Not as good as my Honda Civic Hybrid, I'm sure (45 mpg).

Just like the Harley, an icon in its own lifetime. Instantly recognisable ;o)
Ginnie Hart: Good comparison, Mike. You're so right. Thanks.
Very nice detail! I will send the link to my brother. He rebuilds them and have car race as a hobby.
Got a great memory of "helping him" in the garage as a teenager putting together his first car. The engine was from a Ford Mustang and came in parts from USA.
Ginnie Hart: Wow. That's quite a memory, Pernilla. Congratulations to you and your brother both. Thanks for sending this to him. That means a lot!

Great job isolating this! An iconic car to be sure!
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Andy. It was fun to do. smile
I always had the feeling that the horse is running in the wrong direction smile
Ginnie Hart: HA! Maybe so, Wim. I wonder?! smile I never thought of that.
Classic! So where did you get this piece? Was it detached?
Ginnie Hart: It was on the front grille of a 1967 Ford Mustang (at the car show), Brian. I simply cloned out all the surrounding stuff!
This is iconic Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Yes, it is, Langton. Thank you kindly for stopping by and commenting.
There it is - my daddy's pride and joy!

But you know... I've been thinking about images as "text" and the importance of context for them. I think this mustang resonates more when the car is seen too - like one of those wonderful 1957 T-birds just doesn't look right if a photo doesn't show the "porthole" window.

But what do I know? The importance thing was the fun of 0-60 in that thing - and the look of jealousy from the boys!
Ginnie Hart: I know what you mean about context, Linda, but this horse was just BEGGING to gallop off that car. I just had to release it's inner power. grin

'Course, it sounds like you have memories that simply canNOT be separated from "that" car!
Una imagen impresionante.

Saludos
Ginnie Hart: Muchas gracias, Bernardo.
Perfecta y brillante, Saludos
Ginnie Hart: Muchas gracias, MA!
This is a cracker! A very strong image well captured. Cheers, Dave.
Ginnie Hart: I had loads of fun with it, Dave, so I;me glad you like it. Thanks. smile

I would like to run away but I can afford only the logo ;-) Maybe better with wild horses.
Ginnie Hart: HA! Good point, Martial! By the way, the link did not take me to YOUR blog. HELP!

"Mustang Sally" popped into my mind as soon as this one came up. GREAT processing!!
Ginnie Hart: Awwww. I like that thought, Martie. grin Thanks.
nice framing here ...
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Mohammadreza.
Ohh yes - the logo that brings back memories - the one car that I wanted to own when I was in college - thanks for sharing this Ginnie smile
Ginnie Hart: HA! A dream for a lot of people, I'm sure, Thomas. Thanks.
