A one break from Scotland photos.
Spotted this car, a 1971 VW TL on the street of Givatayim.
I asked the owner for details and his permission to take this photo, and all of a sudden, the dog appeared in the scene, not related to the car owner – so decided to have it as a bonus on this photo.
The car is designated as an antique-collection, it says so on the license-plate which I obscured the number.
Beautifully maintained and in fine driving condition.
*** Thanks to Lucas that indicated the correct name of this car.

Beautiful view of the moment, a good text ...

Good evening, Ike!
I can well remember this type which in Germany we used to know as VW 1600 TL. The TL stands for "touring limousine" aka "traurige Lösung" (= sad solution). It was produced in a time when the beetle could no more be called adequate, but VW did not have a vision what to produce further on. The engine is still in the tail, as it was the case for the beetle. A high percentage was sold as station wagons, offering much space to load.
You captured a well kept exemplar in warm light, and as to the background, there often is not much choice.
Have a nice time!

A very nice capture from a well-chosen POV of this old classic car. I like its warm tones in the warm sunlight. The dog right next to the car is a wonderful detail, very well seen!

Bonjour, cher Ike,
Elle a encore fière allure cette VW, je me souviens d'elle dans les rues de Paris.Elle est parfaitement entretenue.
De plus, elle possède une alarme à quatre pattes !!!

Beautiful classic, Ike. The VW Brasilia was sold in Mexico too in the 1970s.
Surely the dog wet the tire of this well-maintained car!

The dog is helping to frame the car. The point of view is showing the details of th 1971 VW Brasilia. It is clear and sharp. Have a nice day.

Bel angle de prise de cette ancienne voiture très bien entretenue, belle brillance et reflets dans les vitres, sympat la présence du chien

Funny scene with that very beautiful car sand the cute dog. Well seen!

The Oldsmobile vehicle is eyecatching and vintage, with the stray dog animating the scene. Good sharpness and soft pastel colors. The angled pov is great. Tfs!

Bravo et amitié.

A VW model I have never seen or heard of before. The point of view is well chosen to capture the sleek elegant lines. Very good rendering of the colours and sheen in the coachwork. The uninvited dog contributes to the mood and is well included.
Royaldevon (43375) 2016-11-15 2:34
It's a gorgeous car and, as you say, beautifully maintained!
The shadows and highlights confirm its shiny bodywork.
I like your composition, giving a fine impression of the car and with enough surrounding space to prevent it feeling 'crowded'.
The dog is a real bonus.
It looks like a car mascot!
Well spotted and photographed.
Have a lovely day,

Parked cars are not my favorite kind of photos, I'm just not interested in cars, but the light is very nice, there seems to be an interesting building in the background, and the dog is definitely a nice part of the photo.

I didn't know there was this car there, and with the same name! Very nice capture of this lovely old car, with excellent colors and sharpness! Beautiful job!
ourania (51079) 2016-11-15 10:46
a very effective portrait of a beautiful car, I don't think I've ever seen it before but I like it very much. The dog is standing next to it like a companion or a guard. I also like the style and the atmosphere of this neighbourhood, which -again- reminds me of certain suburbs of Athens. The light and the colours are very lovely.
Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,

Yes, those rear engined sewing machines were manufactured the longest in Brazil. This is an attractive view of a legend of a car.

I missing this picture with the old car and dog.
My friend has the same car during the seventies.
Perspective and depth are perfect.
Presentation and clarity are very pleasant to look at.
Very well done, TFS.

curiosa essa fotografia desse VW, que aqui no Brasil ficou conhecido como VW TL. O VW Brasilia era outro veículo, que pode ser visto nessa foto minha, que apesar de pequena, dá pra ver bem as formas. De qualquer maneira um interessante registro. Belo trabalho.
Parabéns e Abraço,
macjake (72539) 2016-11-17 22:46
darn, i thought you captured this one in Scotland somewhere :)
that would have been a great find walking the streets.
yeah, this is one of those cars I think alot of guys would enjoy having in their garage. very good angle of the car, we can see its long lean lines, wheels and headlights. looks great. cheers
emka (106722) 2016-11-17 23:33
Nice old Volkswagen and the dog is indeed the bonus here. It is in good state but with historical plate so probably used only on special occasion and well cared for. In Cuba such oldies t are just in common use.

lovely car, the photo could pretend to be taken in 1971. The dog merged with the car resulting in a quite funny combination. Although we all love travel: it is sometimes nice to make a break and post something freshly photographed at home :)
Have a great weekend,

Hello dear Ike,
A truly engaging scene time perfectly. I don't remember this model of the VW, but can you believe it is so well preserved after 45 years.
Warm regards and have a good weekend,

A fine shot of this classic old VW. The beautiful light and well chosen angle brings out lovely details. You`re right, the dog is a nice addition. It looks as if it`s guarding the 45 years old classic car. Excellent:) TFS.

We had this car here in Brazil back in the 70's and 80's!
Sharpness, exposure, colors, horizontal format, contrasts and composition are all excellent!
TFS - congrats,
