Thank you

thank you so much Dave I appreciate that.

Love this site and enjoy sharing a hobby that gives another perspective on a time gone past

Very atmospheric

This is a great colorization, PaadonMe. As with your previous two, it employs a muted and limited palette to maximum effect. Your blues and golds in the other two are very lovely, and the overalls on the mechanic here are perfect. I also love the subtle gradations of whites and grays and the various wood tones. Finally, the shiny parts look so realistic. The reflection of the capped photographer in the car door is complex and haunting.
