Lovely shot. Contrast between those neat Peugeots, Fords or BMW and that beautiful classic DC8. Only planes never age. How close aviation was these days as well, it doesn't feel like that anymore.

Lovely! BMW 2000, Fiat 124, Peugeot 504, Ford Taunus and what?

Pretty colors and livery. Love the vintage cars parked right beside the airplane. No fences, no barriers; they give the photo a nice period look.
