Girls & Cars

I got this vintage car ad from Darrell Staggs, a photographer that I’m lucky enough to be collaborating with on an art project. Very Exciting. Check out his work here.

Cars have always held a certain fascination for me. Growing up I remember my dad taking us two places: skating rinks and low rider shows. My son is a real life car enthusiast. Like he’s into torque and engines and whatnot. Taking him to the Meechum Auto Auction and getting to see his joy was everything.

And I love old cars. Don’t get me wrong…I love a space coupe. They are fast,flashy, loud; certainly fun for a night or a weekend. But its something about the care and restoration of a classic that just impresses me more. I can appreciate the extra work and extra care that goes into its upkeep. I appreciate the memories it holds. But more than anything I admire the individuality of each car. Each one unique. Each one with its own purpose.

My favorite…chilling in the corner, minding her business, doing just enough. But when she step out, you gone see it.
