1959 Traveler & 1957 Dodge photoshoot

A while ago two photographers and four models had a photo shoot with my Traveler and Dodge.

Photos can be seen at photographers’ sites.
The first:
http://www.peterkemp.nl/fotografie_peterkemp/keuzemenu/keuzemenu.html
(follow the icon/link ‘Fotoshoots’ and then ‘The Wild Bunch’).
And the other photographer:
http://gallery.zoom.nl/user/3898/mgjvk/myimages/90
and
http://gallery.zoom.nl/user/3898/mgjvk/myimages/120
(you’ll probably need to browse, because he keeps adding (other) photos).

The photo shoot as a portfolio won a national price and got published in the leading photographers magazine "Focus". With a nice story to it, which even got a correct annotation for the Traveler and Dodge too…
The article in whole (in Dutch...) can be found here:
www.peterkemp.nl/fotografie_peterkemp/PeterkempFocus2009.pdf

I've mounted the hitch receiver, new rear spring leafs and shocks on both my Dodges and they handle the trailer easily. In facts I don't even use the old fashioned weight distribution and sway control bars I bought especially for this combination! The 2-door you see here doesn't have any power robbing thingies like PS or PB and that didn't bother me driving the combination down a steep hill without any trouble whatsoever. Okay.., I was doing 25 mph... Surprisingly, it's as if it isn't there!

Cool Pictures

It brings back much nostalgia seeing the old Dodge and Airstream. Back then the manufacturers made their automobiles unique, unlike today where everyone is a copycat!
