Night Drives

Night Drives

The best way to enjoy a car is to drive a car. Only the driver can truly feel this sensation, the joy of applying pressure to your right foot and getting a direct reaction as you rev it through the RPM’s knowing you are solely responsible for the power and sound it produces only to shift milliseconds before redline.

This guy, and I

                      Well just another typical Wednesday afternoon for us. washing our cars to prep for west side Wednesday, a seemingly pointless act because we are always late and never get prime parking, and no one looks at our cars anyway. so i decided to snap some shots while at the car wash.
