He’s a good automobile photographer recognized particularly for his operate capturing Porsches, both equally vintage and contemporary. We talked about our newest inspirations in art, structure, and of program, vehicles, as he experienced just returned from Steve Moal Coachbuilders store and spied Steve’s individual 1951 Ford Business coupe sitting down in the corner, looking somewhat forgotten. It’s a Club Coupe with the stock 8BA Flathead however in spot, and aside from currently being tastefully lowered, the auto is nevertheless quite primary. A blank canvas if you will… Ready to be created into a tasteful gentle custom made, or most likely one thing much more radical? Irrespective, I could see that acquainted search all in excess of my friend’s deal with: A male absolutely bitten by the Shoebox Bug, indicated by a hazy glimpse in his eyes coupled with a a bit devilish grin.
