    Here are a couple of old post cards from a collection called "Positively New York" and another snapshot in time of a Comet and a Maverick from the early 80's i believe?

    Great pics. I'm not a photographer or anything(might consider it as another hobby) but I always have loved the way older photos like those look. There is just something about them that just stands out from all these new HD features found in everything.
