Caddy Cruiser, American Made

April 11, 2014

1959 Cadillac with its long beautiful lines and huge fins. These cars look like they have been customized even when they are stock. I love the choice of color by the owner, any other car and this just wouldn’t work. Shot at Goodguys Del Mar Nationals, April 4, 2014.

Autocross in the pits

April 7, 2014

Here is a shot from the Goodguys Meguir’s 14th Del Mar Nationals car show. This shot was taken between autocross races in the pits. This Vintage Camaro was being tweaked for the next session. I am glad they have added autocross to the event because it is a great way to see these vintage cars in action instead of just sitting pretty. Photo nerd info: Nikon D800 with Nikon manual 24mm perspective shift lens.

Lunde VW Double Cab Bay

February 5, 2014

This shot was done a few years ago at Airkewld in Surprise, AZ. It is a very detailed double cab that could be driven everyday. Dig this truck. Mark of Lunde VW brought it by for the photo shoot. Thanks Mark! Thanks Pete!

Porsche Photo

September 10, 2013

The VW Treffen event this last weekend, September 8, 2013, at The Phoenix Club in Anaheim, CA is where this shot was taken.  This show is one of my favorites. It is so, as my wife would say, civilized. Not jam-packed with cars but enough to walk around and enjoy each one for hours. The quality of some of these cars is amazing. Nothing newer than a 57 oval window is allowed in the show. Buses must be pressed bumper era and Ghias older than a 1960. There are coachbuilt cars and as you can see even a few Porsches in this show. The show is every two years at this German Club. They have a rifle (pellet gun) range, German dancers, beer and we had some Schnitzel and Brats.

This 1957 Porsche Speedster is owned by Kelly Whittemore

Photo nerd info: Nikon D800, Nikon 50mm shot at 1.4 @ 1/5000th sec, iso 50

This shot is from today’s Bob Baker Volkswagen Show in Carlsbad, California. This car is a 1961 but has parts from years as far back as an early 50′s split window grafted in. Owner said he has had the car since the 1970′s. Photo nerd info: Nikon D800, 80-200 Nikon Lens at 80mm, F3.2 @ 500 second, iso 50.

My personal 62 Volkswagen

April 3, 2013

Took a little cruise out today to do my errands. Had a camera, a wall, my 62 bug and some sun. This is with the new front end modifications. There are a few more details needing attention. Note the center caps on front wheels missing. The new 4.5″ BRM wheels have a slightly smaller hole for the center cap so my custom billet ones don’t fit. Those are being custom-made this week. Front end is now running Airkewld front BAD disc brakes, stainless braided lines, 3″ narrowed beam, 4.5″ BRM style wheels and new ContiEcoContact 145/65/15 tires (Smart Car tires).  Happy driving!
