Vintage Car Show Photos

Vintage Car Show Photos
July 1982
Hosted by the Slowpokes
Held at Detweiller Park
Peoria, Illinois

-Photos taken by Alan Arnell-

Back in the day it was harder to take photos of a car show.  I used a 35mm Cannon AE-1 SLR camera will real film.  You only had 24 shots on a roll, so you had to be selective in which cars you chose to photograph.  There was no Photoshop to crop or make the color better.  You had to do it all setting up the camera when taking the pictures.  Then when you exposed your film you had to send it off to a processing plant and have the pictures mailed back.  The whole process from buying the film to having it printed cost about $10.  Does not sound like much today, however as a first year teacher I only made $10 an hour.  It is much better today with my digital Cannon Rebel camera.  I have a memory card where I can take several hundred pictures and post on the internet for free. You can see that on the last 3 photos some how I exposed the film to a light source by the glow in the picture.  I remember, I also lost a half dozen pictures in that roll due to unwanted light on the film.   Please enjoy my first real car show as a newly employed adult.
