Globally it may just be the largest Mustang gathering as well know, with an entire week filled with the sounds and sites of Mustangs scattered throughout the Myrtle beach area. For 6 days, thousands and thousands of Mustangs take over the strip for Mustang Week. One of the more notable events being  the car show.

The Survivor Camaro. Still Surviving.

In our lives we meet amazing people, some of those who set out to change the world, or make it a better place. So was the case for the “Survivor Camaro.”   Built by Kristen Benavidez after a long battle of the life threatening disease Leukemia, she survived.  Her 2010 Camaro then became a symbol to raise awareness and support for others who are struggling as she did.

I had the opportunity to travel to Houston, Texas and shoot Kristen with her Camaro and during that time, learnt a lot about the vehicle, along with her story and eventually we became very good friends.  But just a few short years after this photoshoot, the Camaro was destroyed along with her family home during the hurricane Harvey.

Here is a tribute to an amazing person and car.

The Porsche 918

Some days you just need to park on a desolate road, and just stare at your car, which is exactly what we did with this 2016, Porsche 918.  The location was just outside of Benicia, California, between the plains of desolation and the congestion of San Francisco.  It was a very hot Sunday morning.  So enjoy the heat of this photo shoot.  – Adam Riley

Photoshoot with Olivia Cook

To me a great experience is having an opportunity to photo-shoot a custom vehicle.  But when I have the opportunity to photograph the painter who painted that vehicle, it becomes even a greater experience.  Here we showcase Olivia Cook, a professional custom painter standing next to a wickedly customized 240z drift car, that’s covered in House of Color’s custom “pearl white” sprayed by Olivia herself.  Enjoy!  – Adam Riley
