This was monumental! We shot four rides ( two gassers and two rat rods) with four pin-up models, in the middle of winter and on the tail end of the biggest Northwest snow storm in recent memory. This was for a four season shop calendar in which we documented the whole process for my new film Rats & Gassers: Kustom Kulture Takes A Ride. The amazing Tina Tang, of Parris Blue Photograph, shot the gals and cars at GodSpeed Fabrication in Auburn, Washington. For us, this was an hour plus road trip. The roads were clogged with downed power lines and trees just a few blocks from the shop- and after being scolded by an Over-Caffeinated-Agro-Cop, we turned around and took an unmarked detour for the last few miles to GodSpeed. My wife and Cameron Harris came as film crew. A few night before we were going to cancel, because of the extreme weather. Things had thawed out just enough to make the trip to Auburn. The models were Kitty Mansfield, Aly Hellcat, Kissable Kandie and Stiletto Sweetheart. The cars were Big Tom & Carla McDonald's '56 T- Bird, Steve Mallory's '62 Oldsmobile Wagon, Robb Newby's International Rat Truck and Dave Leibold's Ford Rat Truck. Dave came through at the last minute when another car owner couldn't make it because he was still snowed in. These guys and gals drove in very iffy conditions to get to make this happen. I am humbled by everyones effort to pull this off!
I will add more pics and still later.
