Laws of Attraction by Tonyr Laws of Attraction by Tonyr
I have an enormous passion for cars, especially old classics like this one. It is a 1965 Mustang fastback and I find so many aspects of it deeply attractive. The lines of it's body, the look of the interior and the feel of driving it. My father who is now 84 is pictured inside the car. For many years he has worried about me purchasing and driving older cars. However when I took this car up to him at Christmas he fell in love with the car instantly. Also in the short time I have owned the car I have found that many other poeple of all ages have been similarly inspired by the car. Whilst it may not be to everyone's liking it would seem that something about this car lifts many people and has them feel their own souls.

This is tremendously empowering for me as I want people to share in the beauty of this car rather than feel excluded. This is also something I endeavour to do when presenting the images of women here on Deviant Art. I believe that things of beauty should inspire others to feel better about themselves. However when it comes to appreciating the beauty of women it would seem that society pressures us to not be so intuitive. Further many people viewing images of beautiful women are often disempowered by the experience.

There is much evidence that humans are attracted to balance and flow. Small children without the conditioning of society have been found to be attracted to faces and bodies that are assymetrical for example. I believe that the lines of this car have been formed in a way that stimulates the inner child in many who see it. I also believe that certain women have been gifted with bodies and faces that have a similar ability to touch on our souls. However it would seem that especially in modern society we are forced to second guess our inner selves due to the laws of not being seen to offend those who are hurting.

In general I believe that society and people need to become more passionate about life. To be more open to feel rather than be conditioned to censor what they do, say and think. I feel good about the attraction I have towards this car and also am proud about my attraction towards the women I depict on this site's pages. For me to pretend otherwise is to not be honest with what is a natural and healthy attraction to beauty.

My father still has his 1965 Mustang 289 3 Speed that he brought me home from the hospital in - it was brand new and so was I!  It is yellow and not a fast back, but oh the memories I have of that car!  This one is simply stunning!

Thanks very much. It must have been such a buzz being with one of these cars when they were new.

Indeed, these are beautiful cars. The styling is wonderful. I also have a 65 fastback, looking just like yours only I have the styled steel wheel reproductions. Some photos are on my page. Again, you have a beautiful car!

Very beautiful :) Looks like they pony just came off the lot. There is something to be said about a classic car. And even more so when that car is restored and looking like it did the day it was built. Maybe it's because back then care were more unique from each other. Now it seems like most body styles all came from the same mold.

I have a '67 Mustang and just recently purchased a new camera/lenses. I'll be sure to look at your work for inspiration and hopefully be posting some shots here on dA.

I will certainly do so. I was hoping to take my car out tomorrow and take some shots but I'm not sure if the weather will cooperate. There is a major car show in about three weeks which I intend to go and fill up my memory card. I let you know what happens. :)

So many Beautiful things...
My favorite Mustang is the '67 GT500 with a 427 under the hood! A boy can dream...
I have an '85GT, though it has seen better days, as I have, it used to be a shiny beautiful and fearsomely fast thing. It has a Richmond Gear 4+1 trans (close ratio 5 speed) and a 5.0, used to beat street bikes, would slip the tires in 4th at over 110 mph! I do so miss it but my wallet doesn't miss the tickets! lol

I love the 67 Mustangs also. Hate to think what a genuine GT500 would cost.

Check out winthemustangs.com, they're giving away a '68 and 2013 GT500 and $50K for taxes!!
Last year was a '67 and 2012, but I didn't win. If I did I wouldn't be sitting here typing, I'd be out smokin' tire!! lol

I agree with you completely. This is a nice looking car, but I would be more seduced by the profile of a Porsche 911, which has a similar profile. I like some of the classic/modern profiles we have been seeing over the last decade with new car designs. Although I really dig the lines of my 2005 Acura MDX and would not trade it for an older car with limited features.

I find that there are a range of cars that I find attractive. A Porsche 911 of various years being an example. I think attractive looks in cars are not limited to older designs. There are so many 2013 cars that look incredible. However there are also many designs of new and old cars that lack the soul creativity in their design. Much about personal preference but I do think that something designed from a pure creative space is universally attractive.

Understood. style is a matter of opinion, but clearly there has been some rare designs that had shown to be a timeless hit with people crossing decades with little change to their shape. The general shape of the 911 had not changed much over the last 40+ years, where most car styles change so radically they are not even reminiscent of their earlier versions. The Corvette had changed more than the 911 over the last several decades, but it is also one of those famous designs. I suppose you could say the same about the design of the pickup truck, but for the life of me I cannot see why? I have several trailers for that sort of use, which do not cost me much in maintenance, insurance, or licensing fees. Pickups make no sense to me, but I cannot argue how popular they have been through out the last century.

It was nice to see the Mustang and Cobra make a comeback with a modern twist. The Mini Cooper was a surprise hit after it had vanished from the USA scene for nearly 3 decades. I was even more surprised to see the Fiat making a comeback as well. I never imagined we'd see Fiat in the USA again. Only time will tell if they've made a lasting return.

There is absolutely something about the older cars that are far more alluring and stylish than the bland boxes on wheels of today (Hence my choice of a Valiant Ranger for my car :D)

I have always found the text which accompanies your photos to be thoughtful and intelligent which shows the empathy you have for your subjects. Be it a beautiful car or a beautiful woman. It is a breath of fresh air.

This is true that this car steers the child in ourselves, if I must say :eyes:
I can say that your women pictures are of the most marvelous I have ever seen here about the same subject on dA :thumbsup:

Definitely. Your nudes are among the more classy that I never saw - not that I am not watching constantly nude pics in general :D but yours have a great beauty and how they define the shapes with the lights and shadows. This is why I used a couple of your photos as references for my drawings, and I may be tempted to use them again, if you don't see any inconvenient, of course!
