What an unexpected update on the classic car. Drab black has become PINK!
Susan says, “I doubt very much that the original manufacturer color of this car was pink. It was no doubt whatever color you desired as long as it was black. You have to admire the audacity of the restorer to use this florescent and iridescent powder-puff pink in the original. Here all the dials displaying manly internal combustion data are enclosed in pink casing. The manual controls are sprouting from a pink column. Is the steering wheel pink? Quite possibly! Here we have a smash up of masculine and feminine tropes that turns both upside down. Making unexpected choices like this in your presentation is a good way to wake up a complacent audience. An added attraction is the humor inherent. It is very hard to make points that stick with your audience. Make them memorable by using the unexpected.”
Lucia says, “Another alluring technique is to show a small part of a larger subject to draw in your audience. We don’t need to see the whole car to envision the loving care and pride that went into restoring this classic car. Shot through the wind-wing (anyone remember those?), this photo captures the details of a dashboard restored to perfection. As a side note and back-story: the young woman who restored this car said that her grandfather left it to her. I think he would have been proud of her, don’t you?”
