I took my Argus C3 to a Sunday car show in Los Ranchos de Albuquerque. Seemed the perfect camera for such an event.
I picked up this C3 at a yard sale not long ago along with several other cameras. The fellow was selling about everything he owned and going back to Sweden for surgery on a cancer the doctors here said was inoperable. I didn't need yet another C3, but it seemed like a worthy cause to support.
This is one of the later models with features like the Matchmatic, but it has standard shutter speeds and f-stops. The coated Cintar is well-recessed into the mount, so not much need to use a lens shade. I opened up the rangefinder from the top and got everything sparkly clean. A little cleaning and lube on the gear teeth got the dials turning smoothly. The shutter needed no attention, though I did reposition the cocking lever so it would be less likely to catch a finger.
