Event: Collector Car Auction

When Gus told me he was on the production team for a collector car auction I insisted he get me a ticket.  Seeing classic cars is like traveling back in time. I picture the families that use to own it, the conversations that took place, the adventures, the everyday moments like going to the grocery store. It takes me back to a time I only see in movies, a time when life was simple.

All the cars were so unique from each other with amazing details. I decided to photograph what makes each car special.

Decades later we call these cars a work of art.

When I saw this black Chevy I was taken back to my childhood. My dad use to have one and he loved it. I remember when a random man came to our door and offered him cash for it. I can recall the look of sadness on my dad’s face, it was hard for him to let it go but finally did.

When I went inside for the auction it was amazing how much these cars were going for. Each one was going for no less than 40, 000. A black mustang went for 100, 000.

This 1960’s Porsche was my favorite!!!

Each car held its own beauty. The closer I looked the more elegant it became.

The Time Machine was even there! But not for sale 😦

Being at the auction I understood the heart of the buyer. My emotions would take over and I would pay anything. I pictured myself ridding the car in the sunset, cruising. Yes, if I had that much money I would say, “I worked hard for my dollars, why not.” haha..


Route 66 – Classic Cars

I’ve always been fascinated with old cars. My parents tell me stories about how everyone in the city would drive all night and “cruse” the streets.

My community once a year has a huge car show called Route #66. Everyone in town comes and shows off their classic cars.
