1927 Roadster at Bonneville Salt Flats

Bonnie’s Bonneville Homecoming at Speedweek 2009.  The first roadster I’ve ever ridden in.  What a blast!  This beauty shot on virgin salt will stick in my brain for years.


Larry Volk's Hemi powered model A Roadster with Hilborn Injection

Hilborn Injectors from Larry Volk’s ’29 roadster project.  This Hemi powered Model A will be an epic project that I plan on writing more about in the future as Larry builds his dream ride.

Hot Rods by Dean '55 Chevy

The Hot Rods by Dean ’55 Chevy at World Finals blew me away when I saw it waiting in line.  One of my favorite cars I shot all year.  Nothing like a stock bodied car with great stance! 

Galaxie and Coupe at Speedweek

Nick Hoesing’s ex-Galaxie Custom and his buddy’s 5 Window Coupe from Nebraska.  Cruising the Long Course at Bonneville while riding shotgun with Pikesan is one of my favorite moments of 2009.

 Record breaking VW Karman Ghia at World Finals 2009

Larry Monreal’s turbo VW just after sunset during World Finals 2009.  The bright yellow paint, low light from the sunrise and a top notch driver and “5th son” Jim Bradshaw.

Pikesan's 1927 Model T Pinto powered Roadster at Bonneville

This is definitely one of my favorite shots from this year.  Man and Machine.  I really gained an appreciation for the roadster as the ultimate driving experience.  Pikesan’s first trip to the Salt Flats will NOT be his last, that’s for sure! 

Just realized this turned into a “Favorite Salt Flats Picture Poll”.  That tells you how EPIC Bonneville is!  See you on the Salt!
