I’ve always been a gearhead at heart. I was that kid that took apart the blender; and before I was old enough to drive it, I had a motorcycle that also got disassembled regularly. My teen years and early twenties were a string of old cars, bikes, oil leaks, and busted knuckles. Modifying and maintaining old cars shares much with design. Both use creative problem solving to create something that must look good while serving a purpose. This collection of photos was made over the course of my travels to various car shows, swap meets, motorcycle rallies, and amateur races. At these events, I try to focus as much attention, if not more, on the people, personalities, and lifestyle as on the machines and action.
