Yes, the title is an attention grabber, but then again, so it this vehicle. Automobiles from years gone by have a style accentuated by curves and lines. I guess that's why cars are always referred to in the feminine gender. I call upon our auto aficionado "jerseygurl" (Laura) to help identify this model as I was so engrossed with photo shooting, I didn't annotate the model/year. One for LE'S B/W Challenge and I encourage all to join the fun. As always, thanks for looking and leaving a comment.

Wonderful shot of this old beauty, Doug. I would guess a Buick or a Pontiac around 1957-58 era.

She's sexy alright Doug - from what I could gather, she appears to be a 1958 Buick Special 4 door sedan of which 48,238 were made that year - and came with a 364 Cubic Inch engine and had that soft and ultra comfortable ride. The cars of that era had panache and style. Great shot of this baby for the B&W Doug!!!!!!!!!

Emptiness is not nothingness. It is simply the opposite of full of it.

I agree with Laura - my mom had a 58' Buick and I recognized that rear quarter immediately. I was only 7 but it was a great car until it burned up! Excellent shot of the beautiful lines of this car unlike the boxes we drive now.

I was pretty sure it was a Buick, but that is about all. I remember seeing them when I was a kid. Beautiful black and white, Doug. Excellent for the challenge.

She's a bonny model Doug...

I also like the angle and composition you snapped this at... it adds a little 'tease' to let us see the rest of her!

I agree with Bob, less is more. She is a teaser :)
Thank you so much Doug for providing this curvaceous beauty for the BWC :)

My thanks to all who leave comments for my work and to those of you who like one enough to make it a favourite. To touch just one person that way makes each image worthwhile. . . . . . . . . .. . . . "The question is not what you look at, but what you see" ~ Marcel Proust

I would say the back looks like a 55-58 Buick but the chrome on the door and quarter panel doesn't match anything I've seen in that year range. I'm stumped. Good find and nice shot.

The crop and angle of this shot really works well.
They sure made curvaceous cars make then didn't they and I'm pretty sure Marilyn Monroe would have complemented the car extremely well...
What completes the photo though, is the Black and White conversion which really shows off the contrast between the chrome and the paintwork.
