Old equipment while being fairly rushed for most of the pictures. Fun vehicle to drive and still be able to haul stuff around.
Sigma 17-70 (that will be for sale very soon) using a very old Canon DSLR (300D).
Fiancee has better equipment, but I haven't had a chance to try it out on the SS....
Thoughts??

You do 1000x better than I do. And I wish I still had the WS.6 once in a while too.
Your silver one is damn near perfection!

sometimes wishing you had some better equipment is gonna take away from the fun of taking the photos with what you actually have (which might ruin a day) but i think you did well. I like 2 and 6


its not how you take the picture, its the final result before editing.

These look OK, & you're on the right track. Look at how better light worked for some of these:

Lighting is always something that is tough here. Being in the Denver area (with most pictures taken at an even higher altitude) puts the sun just that little bit closer, but it does indeed make a difference.
I haven't really had the time to practice lately either.... :(

Like the second shot a lot. My cousin just bought one of these. Very tempting, just can't convert to automatic trans just yet.

The stock transmission is sloppy and somewhat weak.
Installed a Sonnax shift kit, Yank 3600 stall, and tranny cooler. Tuned it is MUCH better.

BTW, the lens that took these shots is for sale.....hoping the price is about right....not really sure what it should go for, lol

Love the color, really unique on the TB/SS's. I like that you blacked out the front airdams too. IMO the wheels would look great PlastiDip'd black. I had part of my front and rear fascia PlastiDip'd, as well as my wheels...on my TB/SS.
