I took my favorite medium format camera to Autorama and spent nearly four hours ogling the forms and colors of all of the hot rods and rat rods there on the show floor. While many cars there are primarily concerned with looking good, with speed taking secondary importance, this Mercedes 300 SL is primarily concerned with speed, it being a Bonneville Salt Flats car and all. So while looking good for this car was of secondary importance, it looks fantastic because… well, it’s a Gullwing. Photo shot with a Mamiya C220 TLR and an 80mm f/2.8 lens on Kodak Portra 400.

I got free tickets to the Detroit Auto Show Industry Preview courtesy of a friend, and brought along some buddies to explore and photograph the auto show in relative calm. I liked the wheels on this BMW M3, and liked the muted colors in the frame, with the red display in the background and blue car and blue floor in the foreground.

VW brought out this first-gen Jetta to sit alongside their newest one. Go figure, I shot a frame of the old car and paid the new car no attention.

I liked how the Ford GT looked with the crowd silhouetted against the turntable’s spotlights. Also, that dude in the back has a very appropriate jacket.

The big news in the Ford booth was the public unveiling of not only the new Bullitt Mustang, but the original one as well. Very few people paid attention to the new Mustang, with almost all eyes on the one and only original. I didn’t buck the trend myself.
