During our senior year at Cal Poly University, in California, I shared an apartment with my friend Reed, who built a ‘54 Mercury, bored and stroked. Fastest car in Pomona back in 1962. Reed was and is an automotive genius.
I gave up hot cars as a primary interest and hobby for awhile, pretty much missing the muscle car era while raising a family, make a living and all that during the 60s.
Nevertheless, photography and photojournalism brought me plenty of excitement from 1963 through the 80s, particularly as a photojournalist and publisher during the Vietnam war.
But that’s a whole other story.
