Yes Peter, that did it. It is a 1935 Buick Cabriolet. They made 3 models with the suicide doors. Total of all 3, only 291 made. 1 with conventional doors. 933 made. This is the car I wish I could afford. Thank You so much Peter, Gene

Happy to help Gene . I never would have noticed that car if you hadn't have asked but it is a really cool looking automobile. Peter

At the present time I really don't have a good way to reproduce good pictures , the ones that I post are taken by my 12 year old camera of original photos that I have . The originals are high quality but that gets lost when I do it this way . I need to get a scanner and figure out how to resize them . Keep in mind I am a old contractor and not very good at this . I have a large collection of these original photos , which came out of the Patrick Shimmon collection years ago when he passed away . They are Vico Utoco stations from Utah and Idaho taken by the company photographer . here are some more pictures. The globes are different Pep 88 and Utoco globes. I will try to get better quality photos posted in the future . Thanks Peter

Peter,

If you get a scanner, most scanners let you scan at a smaller size.

Your photos are really good though for detail. If you want to figure out about squaring them better, keep in mind that the larger side of the resulting image is what the camera is closest to. In other words you are not holding your camera parallel to what you are photographing.

You should be able to see it through the view finder. If the top of the old photo looks smaller than the bottom, it means that the camera is closer to that side. You need to get above the center of the photograph to level it out. A tripod can help you with this. You can see that the lens is parallel by stepping back from your set up before you take the overhead photo. And you should see the same in the viewfinder or screen. Same goes for one side bigger than the other. Your camera is more to one side than centered.

To help explain what is happening: When I take a photo of one of my paintings, I lean the painting on the wall of my porch out of the sun, so I get the light reflected from the sky. When I see in my viewfinder that the top is bigger than the bottom, I know I have to lean the picture even more so the top recedes. That or I have to move the camera lower so it's 'closer' to the middle of the painting and not the top.

Anyway nice photo reproductions!
