    Thread: Some photos of the Noble and the RS.

    1. 11-28-2010 02:05 PM #1
      I hired a photographer to take some images of the Noble in order to sell it. I'm really happy with the fruits of his labor and thought you guys would appreciate seeing some images:



















      He also shot the RS. The car itself looks pretty bland by comparison to the Noble:











      Yes, I know I need new door sill moldings. I didn't realize how bad they look until I saw this photograph:

      Yes, they were taken in Reston. The photographer is from Richmond, so he didn't know of any locations and I didn't do any research. We ended up at a friend's parking garage.

      It was never orange: It just had orange accents.

      When did you get the Noble? Did I miss a thread?

      Also, the RS looks much better with the regular badge back on the hood. What happened to the bumper sticker?

      P.S. Is that the same seat that was in your Lotus?

      Do you use the racing buckets on the RS only on track days? What's the reason again the US doesn't get those factory buckets stock?

      love the cars...
      some of the photos, while awesome, are lacking obvious focal points...
      seems like you'd want the full car in focus for the side shots if you're selling it, and it seems like his focus or depth of field wasn't really of that same mindset?
      or these are lower res, and the high res are crystal clear...

      awesome pics, but i'm picky and see some stuff that doesn't mesh for pic clarity...

      jealous of your cars!

      It's been an albatross for the last couple of years. Long story.

      I loaned the car to a friend who lives in a liberal college town. He peeled off the stickers for fear of vandalism.

      The seat is the same brand, but not the same model as that which was in the Exige.

      Kudos to you for noticing it! It's my favorite addition.

      I have seats for track days, but not the factory ones. The US didn't get the Euro-spec seats because we suck. I'm okay with that because the factory seats are too narrow for me and incompatible with HANS.

      Sweet pictures. I've encountered one Noble, and it was at a small track here in CA. The owner was afraid of wrecking it, I guess, and drove kinda slow-like. Man did it sound awesome though. Where's the for sale link? I've seen some of them getting down to the $50s.

      That apartment building looks kinda

      The people around here tuck their teeshirts into their jeans. So a sense of humor will not be welcomed.

      You really have a thing for that car, huh? You should meet me at the shop and check it out. In the spring. When it's ready.

      I haven't created an ad yet, but it's in the $50,000-range. If you're interested, feel free to contact me privately and I'll give you all the details.

      The buildings in the background are almost all commercial properties.

      Absolutely! You gonna fly to DC for it? The guy that took those images drove 5 hours round-trip for $25.

      In all seriousness, I've seen your work and it's spectacular. We're just a bit geographically challenged to make it work.

      You're damn right I do have a thing for that car. I grew up around them so some of my earliest car geeky memories are from a 2002 back in the 70's.

      It's just damn cool older car.
