A few of my first photos with a slr were of this Caprice Classic. I’m sure if many of you had friends with Monte Carlos or Caprice Classics or Buick Regals but back in my little home town in ohio they were/are everywhere. It’s like they are synonymous with getting money - hustlers and dopeboys loved them. You’ll see them now with HUGE wheels but they used to rock the 17” deep dish hundred (pronounced hunned) spoke Dayton’s. This may be the first roll of film I developed and processed back in 9th grade (notice my framing exercise with my little brother in the background).
I was reminded by all this because of a track called Monte Carlo from Naturel (go check this post out on flwrpt and please download the album, it’s dope). Listening to it has taken me back and has me wishing I could rent a classic car from zipcar today and go drive slow through Manhattan. My 14yo self would feel on top of the world! When the track is over I’d put on MC Eiht’s Straight Up Menace.
