Old film and Retina IIA

I recently shot some photos with an old Kodak Retina IIa and out of date Fujifilm Pro 160. This film that was given to me by a friend had an expiration date of 2006 and was stored at room temperature.  This camera hasn't been used for nearly 40 years. The camera works well except for the slow shutter speeds under 1/25 of a second.  The negatives looked fogged with faded color.  Still with some work I was able to get the images below.

Retina IIa manufactured in the early 1950s

Here are some of the photos from the expired Fujfilm.
