    Right Place – Right Time

    I rarely go to hangouts anymore, and it’s not like I drive around town looking for cars to feature – which really doesn’t seem like a bad idea. If you end up finding a Gear-Trends business card on a windshield would that be weird? Just thinking out loud here, anyways. The city of Harlingen was throwing a bicycle event and it all lead to the library where apparently a “car show” of sorts was happening. RGV Modern Mopar were posted up there, and once I had my fill of riding around my fixed gear bike like the true hipster I am- I struck up a conversation with some of them. That’s how I ended up meeting these guys, and after a while I was finally able to get one of them in front of the camera to feature. Take that social anxiety!

    Apparently 2016 was a good year for me. I went out to more events back then, and I was starting to shoot something I had just started getting into- drifting. I guess if you want to get technical late 2015 is when it started, but I hate odd numbers so we’ll kinda just yaknow, round up. The Lone Star Drift event in Houston was one of the first places I got to shoot anything like this- and at the 2016 Round 1 event, I saw Joshs’ S14 for the first time. I know – I know, “you still dont’ know anything, this car isn’t even a S14” – obviously. But as some of us know, some cars don’t stick around forever, and sometimes a good deal comes along that you just can’t pass up – no matter how many long nights might be in store for you.

    Not for the Faint of Heart

    Sometimes social media does some good, instead of using it to get “roasted” anonymously by some new trendy app, to swipe left or right on a cute single in your area, or to post photos of your food constantly – sometimes it does some good. That’s how this entire shoot ended up happening, no…not by swiping left, come on guys- I happened to be at a car show in Harlingen months ago snapping some photos for myself, posted them up a few days later on Facebok, and the owner of this car was doing the same thing. I noticed he owned a Mustang and realized I haven’t put up a really all out built domestic V8 in a while – so the wheels got turning, and it just so happened that I got lucky, this wasn’t some car that got tossed in a shop and built- most of this went down in his own garage.
