Father & Son with with PICTURES

My dad is getting up there in years and has a bad case of Parkinson's and I don't have many pictures of just him and me together. Then one day it hit me: He has a black '79 'vette that he LOVES tinkering with (since he can't really drive anymore, he tinkers). I have a black '13 Camaro that I love to drive and tinker with. SO why don't I get dad to park the 'vette next to the Camaro, with the two of us standing in front of the cars. Kind of a father & son/father & son thing (me and dad / Corvette and Camaro).

He thought it was a neat idea so I started last night polishing out his 'vette (I haven't touched it in a few years and man is it swirled). Mine was detailed this past Friday, so It should only need a WW or something similar if the dust & pollen are kept to a minimum.

My dad's car doesn't leave the garage if it's raining two states away or if the driveway is wet. 5 minutes BEFORE these pics were taken it was snowing (yes, snow in May - hey, it's Ohio). But the sun came out, it got warm and the driveway dried off. TWO MINUTES AFTER the pics were taken, the skies got dark and opened up again and it snowed like crazy ... he had barely gotten it back in the garage before it could be "pounded" by snowflakes.

Good idea!
You'll cherish that picture for the rest of your life. My Dad has been gone a long time, and was always the one taking the pictures. Between five kids, none of us have any pictures with him in them!
Still miss him alot.

I have been thinking of doing this for the past couple years. My dad worked in speed shops when I was a kid and now he has his own. He also has a 2010 SS but just drives it, no plans to go crazy with it. But he is finishing up a 72 SS that will be painted ABM as well with white stripes. I'm sure we will get together for a photo shoot as soon as it is ready to run.

Do it now with your 2010s ... you can always retake pics with the '72. I just didn't want to be one of those guys who had to live with the consequences of waiting until things are "Just Right" only to find out that "Just Right" has passed you by.
