    Some folks just like the feel of wind in their hair. That, and the fact
    the Spyder is considerably rarer than the Coupe. Given the entire
    production run of 250 GT SWB's in 1961(the final year of production)
    when most effort went into production of the Competitione and the Le
    Mans effort, there were only about 10-15 Spyders built that year.
    ....but that is an exceptional example with an extraordinary provenance.
    There are not that many GTO's with that sort of lineage. As a matter of
    fact, there are not that many cars from any manufacturer with that sort
    of provenance.
    I doubt that would come close to a fraction the Moss GTO hammer price.

    While I have nothing against using graphite and dead trees, I usually
    photograph the sign in the front window (or wherever located) of a
    show car that I'm going to photograph. I can't recall ever being to a
    car show where there wasn't a card or something displayed with the car
    with the owner's name and the necessary information about the car.

    The photo of the card shows enough of the car to make it clear it's
    the same car, and is in file number sequence, so I have a record of
    the car information.

    The downside of these cards is that they appear in shots of the car
    and have to be cloned out. That's often a real problem since the
    interior of the car shows in part of the front windshield but is
    blocked by the card. Cloning or otherwise removing the card has to be
    time-consumingly creative.

    As long as I'm complaining, the biggest problem I have at car shows is
    the open hood. I don't want photos of engines. On many an occasion
    I've asked the owner to close the hood for the photograph.

    Car owners are usually quite happy to oblige photographers. However, I
    am careful about offering copies of images, as there is usually a
    professional. Sometimes the engines are quite interesting to shoot. My
    interest in the make and model is rather casual.

    Opps Shoud have read, "tried mightily" not "tired mightily" When
    referring to a picture of a car, that could have several meanings.

    I doubt it, the simplex had free floating fenders that followed the
    wheels more closely, and the front fenders went straight down behind the
    wheel.

    Plus, the Simplex roof was for the rear passangers only, not a complete
    soft top.

    The Model T is the best match, still, but some discrepancies are there.[/QUOTE]

    One thing it most definitely isn't, is a Model T. Look at the gear
    lever. There is nothing Model T about that. Ditto for the suspension.
