I came home from a week away to a sizeable parcel…I’d not ordered anything…wasn’t expecting anything…and it was addressed from EA..?
Oh, yeah! Without so much as a note or warning the Awesome Chaps at the big S-H had sent me out a little (BIG) parcel including a load of stickers, keyring and The Photo book of the year!
I’m guessing people with feature cars/ supported them at shows all got a copy! It’s beautifully put together, full of stunning images and a nice way to spend a couple of hours with a coffee. I would say get a copy, but looking at the store I think they’ve all gone; make sure volume two is on your shopping list for next year though.
Well, the new issue of Retro Cars Magazine dropped last week, so I can finally post up some sneaky B-roll from the build up feature! Make sure you check out the mag for all the detail, but for now get a load of this:
You may have heard of a little website that goes by the name of Speedhunters? Well, I’ve been showing my support by having them in my blog roll for a while now and a couple of weeks back I got a call from Bryn (Musselwhite – Speedhunter’s newest features man and my long-term media crush) saying they wanted to feature the KP: AWESOME.
After we cancelled once due to the rain, there was only one other date we could do it…and guess what? It was raining, though just the term “raining” doesn’t really do justice to what felt like all the water in the world being thrown at a quiet corner of the Cotswolds where the shoot was taking place. The KP has only be wet about 4 or 5 times in 7 years, so I held back the tears and went for it. Luckily when I arrived there was the full Speedhunters service: Car wash and coffee.
Despite the freezing deluge it was an awesome day and, as always, a laugh with Bryn. Here’s a few “behind the scenes” pics. Bryn’s barns hold a number of cool cars, parts and memorabilia – worth a SH feature on their own!
Thanks again to Bryn and Speedhunters! Check out the full feature here:
A couple of weeks back I headed over to Compomotive wheels with Si from Retro Cars and Elliot from PVW to shoot a feature. I don’t usually post these things as they are going in the mag, but I thought I’d flash a bit of B-Roll because the place was AWESOME. Make sure you check it out in Retro cars and PVW: British engineering alive and well!
It’s that time of year when all the mags round-up their years worth of feature cars and let the public vote for their favorite, and Retro Cars is no different. I was stoked when I got my copy and my car had been nominated! Even cooler than that is so has Yuta’s 240 (getting my vote!!!). It was a great feature, beautifully shot by living legend Linhbergh (still one of my favorite ‘togs).
It’s a great mag this month and among a load of great writing, photography and feature cars is Ramon Portugal’s ’72 TE27. It’s perfection with 20 valves and those TRD wheels.
