Bit By the Shoebox Bug!

I went out to a regional Hofbräu with a very good buddy of mine final 7 days to capture up around a couple of sizzling pastrami sandwiches. He’s a outstanding car photographer identified especially for his perform capturing Porsches, both equally classic and modern day. We talked about our latest inspirations in art, structure, and of system, cars, as he had just returned from Steve Moal Coachbuilders store and spied Steve’s personal 1951 Ford Company coupe sitting in the corner, searching considerably neglected. It’s a Club Coupe with the inventory 8BA Flathead still in place, and in addition to becoming tastefully decreased, the auto is nevertheless pretty initial. A blank canvas if you will… All set to be built into a tasteful moderate tailor made, or potentially anything extra radical? Irrespective, I could see that familiar appear all more than my friend’s experience: A male absolutely bitten by the Shoebox Bug, indicated by a hazy glance in his eyes coupled with a somewhat devilish grin. Certainly, the ’49-’51 Fords are a perfect gateway drug into the earth of common customs, and I’m pretty stoked my pal will be joining our ranks. If you see a great photographer in a clean ’51 at your nearby cruise or parking ton accumulating, make confident to make him experience welcome!
