It must be the color scheme of this 1940 Chevrolet pickup truck, the cream and brown tones make me think of chocolate milk, and I can see in my mind milk crates with old glass bottles of chocolate milk stacked in the bed of the truck. This beautiful machine was captured at the Pasadena Police 2012 classic car show in Pasadena, California on June 17, 2012. This year’s Pasadena Police show was a bit of a disappointment, though, not as many cars as last year, and fewer, in my opinion, distinctive vehicles. I also thought last year’s venue on Colorado Boulevard was a better showcase in front of Paseo Pasadena rather than this year’s venue on Green Street, behind Paseo Pasadena.

Car Show Fortnight
The last image in this series from the Ontario Police Department Guns & Hoses car show on July 23, 2011 is another Buick. This car is from the same era as my childhood and I love the color scheme on this automobile, it reminds me of a Dreamsicle. It took some lawyer masking trickery in Photoshop to get the body tones right and I also added the background blur in Photoshop.
