Thematic Photographic 48: Yellow v.1.0


"Fun, fun, fun -- with two tops!"
Raleigh, NC - March 2009 (Click to embiggen)

Ten years before the '67 Corvette Roadster I featured a while back was built, Ford rolled this yellow 1957 Thunderbird off the assembly line. And it's painted the same ahem... pale shade of yellow that Chevy put on the Vette 10 years later. Not, as you may have guessed, my favorite among yellows but on such a sweet ride... I guess it's forgivable. Violence UnSilenced

By the way, I'm curious about the small clickable links that correspond to the photo challenge meme. I'm curious how you did that? Is there a site where one can generate the code? I would appreciate any info you'll be willing to share. Thanks! :)

That's such a beautiful car, but yeah, that pale yellow would not be my choice of color. You've got a bit of a Dr. Seuss-like distorted reflection going on there.

When they made them into "sedans" -- what a pity.

Love your choice (really dates me, tho)

How coincidental, while I was away, I got a couple of snaps of a blue Thunderbird. I think 1969. It was just parked on the street looking 'blue' :) I brightened it's day by tanking photos. I'll post 'em soon.
