Festivals of Speed: From Roadsters To Racecars

Festivals of Speed, St Pete
Re-published from Hooniverse, text and photography by Bryce Womeldurf

A few times a year, there is a Concours d’Elegance held in Florida called the Festivals of Speed. These photos are from the event in St Petersburg back in April. I was hoping to show them sooner, but was sidetracked for a while with a broken coolant temperature sensor connector in my Miata. But that’s a story for another time. Here, at last, are the photos from that hot sunny day. (more…)

November 2012: Cars & Cigars

Tonight, I ran across a fellow Jalop (commenter on Jalopnik, for the uninitiated), by the name of Jackson, on Google+ and I remembered that he and I live in the same town.

The main thing I’d been excited to see was Lamborghinis, but from what you see here in this opening image of the Ultima GTR, there were Lambos and so many other cars to get excited about, that I’d only previously seen in magazines. Here are the best of what I shot.

Power Squats and Power Bulges at Auto Collections Las Vegas

1967 California SpyderI had heard that Auto Collections was Las Vegas’ premiere place to go if you want to buy, or just look at, vintage steel. I went two weeks ago, while on vacation, and ended up stretching, squatting, and leaning myself through 300+ photo shots. Here are a few of my favorites. (more…)
