100% stock and yet totally Hot Rod!!!
I love all the TROG stuff.....
Did I really not post my TROG pictures in here....?
well - here ya go then
Nice pix, what did you shoot these with? Taking to people about Santa Barbara, TROG was really well received. Everyone had a great time and the city loved everything about it!
I used to race a Henry J like that back in the 80s. Never could get that car to go straight after I put the big block in it.
But did you have a pair of those groovy striped pants?
The camera is a Nikon D90 - pretty dammed old by todays standards but I have an excellent lens. To give you an idea of how old, it was the first DSLR to record video
but it takes good pictures. Ive shot many weddings on it.
and the event - oh dood - it was the coolest event ive ever seen in SB. I ran into people from Long Beach, San Fran, Germany, Japan, Ireland, Australia.... and EVERYONE was smiling and happy. Everyone was stoked, taking pictures, cheering. It was amazing.
I dont want to flood this thread with a bunch of photos of mine so you can just go here to check them out if you like.
The night before the event, I snuck in on my Speed Triple. Nobody stopped me from riding into the pit area, then I was taking pictures of the track etc
and I literally stepped on an All Access pass. I had already paid for the ticket for the next day but I went down early with the pass and they let me go almost anywhere I wanted to. I even made it into the Cycle World article they did about it because I was everywhere that day - 12 hours on my feet shooting
but there was just SO much to see.... I wanted to get pics of it all. I love being in the middle of it all, I like breathing the exhaust and getting oil and grease on me. Im a petrolhead
Not when I was racing, but I probably did in the early 70s
Stumbled on this one today.
That looks like Wayne Carini's hot rod he had built a while back.
Curve drags. This could be the genesis of a whole new sport.
Who says that it needs to be totally straight?
They recently repaved so it should be interesting for (hopefully) next year
From the past.
