I know, I know… I went missing for a few months. Old Man Winter came up to the great white north lands of Minnesota and I… kinda turned into a hibernating creature. Put my cameras away, got a new “real job”, and fried my desktop. But the snow is finally gone, the leaves are budding, and the cars are coming out of storage for another summer in the sun, and I’m ready. I’ve had a few shoots already, so let’s go over those, shall we?
A few of the guys in my car club have been building new rides all winter, and they went on a little trip down to Dubuque, Iowa for Vintage Torque Fest. Unfortunately, they left me behind. When they got back though I met up with one and his ’41 International Pickup he calls The Ratbinder and did a small impromptu shoot. The whole album can be found by clicking here. Since we were out and about anyways, I brought my car Nyx, a ’68 Ford Mustang, out to play as well. Her album is right here.
Princeton Speedway is up and running this year, with their season opener having been pushed back four weeks while good ol’ Mother Nature dumped rain on a freshly resurfaced track. A lot of drivers have fresh tin and new wraps on their cars, making the beginning of the season a riot of bright colors and clean cars… Until they get a green flag. Then all bets are off. Be sure to cruise over to the album and see what your favorite driver is racing in this year.
Lastly, I officially kicked off my 2014 car show season at Willmar Car Club’s 34th Annual Car Show last Sunday. It was a beautiful day, and the turnout was great! The nasty sunburn I got that day has just started to peel. Maybe next time I’ll think to put on sunscreen. You guessed it, the link to that gallery is right here.
So there it is! That’s what I’ve been up to since coming out of hibernation. I’ll be working on this page a bit and hopefully bringing it up to speed, then maybe it’ll be easier to keep updated. I keep waiting for it to just update itself… but no luck yet. Upcoming events include the Don Roseen Memorial Super Stock Special Friday night at Princeton Speedway, a cruise with the Minnesota Mustangs Facebook Group on Sunday, and the Jack & Jim’s Memorial Day Show on Monday.

Til Next Time,
