Women Posing With Cars
What is it with getting women to pose with cars? I remember when all the ads for cars used to feature a beautiful woman posing beside them. And it seems my dad imitated this by taking a picture of my mother posing beside the car whenever he bought a new one. During the course of working on my photo scanning project, I found several pics of my mother standing beside some new car - like this one, where she is standing beside a 1950-something Mercury.
Here she is again, standing beside another car. I think this photo was taken a year or so later.
Flash forward many years - the tradition continued with a new generation. Here is yours truly, wearing a really ugly denim jumper (it looks like a big sack), posing beside the 1974 MGB that Peter and I owned about 20 years ago. It was a great little car and we had a lot of fun bombing around in it. Ah, the memories! I guess as long as people continue to buy cars, men will take pictures of women posing beside them, for some strange reason or other.
