When Jimi Hendrix was asked what it was like to be the best guitarist in the world, he said, "You better ask Rory Gallagher."

1985 Porsche 962

This 962 was the sixth customer chassis constructed by Porsche and was delivered to Jim Busby Racing for the 1985 IMSA racing season. It competed under BF Goodrich sponsorship in over 35 races during 1985 and 1986. It is the original factory monocoque and is displayed with the 1985 Sun Bank 24 Hours of Daytona livery. In 1985, under the Busby Racing banner, it finished second at Riverside and was driven to a 3rd place finish at the 24 Hours of Daytona by Jochen Mass, Jim Busby and Rich Knoop. 1986 saw Mass and Busby, joined by Derek Warwick and Darin Brassfield achieve a back-to-back repeat at the 24 Hours of Daytona. For two successful seasons, including eight podiums and 12 top five finishes, chassis 962-106 was a fierce competitor on the IMSA circuit.  Purchased in 2011, the car has undergone a complete race prepared restoration by Bob Russo with paint by Blades Enterprises and graphics by Dave Schnorr of Auto-Graph-It.

Texas Flood

May end up doing some more bikes, the Amelia Concours denied my media access request for the first time in 5 years. The new staff evidently does not like my work, I kind of got that idea when they started blocking anything I tagged them with over on FB, anyone else, good or not has been okay tagging so it is not just locked down.

The Event overlap's with bike week and whenever time was tight I focused on the Concours. I put in an appeal but don't expect much, will still go and shoot the free stuff on Saturday but as far as the main event the only work I was able to do in the past was with media access before the crowds moved in -;0)

Your background clouds always amaze me and I've tried to emulate that style some - with a little success.

1929 Jaguar Austin Swallow Sports

By 1926 William Lyons had expanded his motorcycle sidecar business into production of small coupes and sport run-abouts called Austin Swallows.  These cars predate Lyons 1931 SS cars, and the first Jaguars of 1935, and are an important part of the early history of the company.
 
The Austin Swallow featured Lyons stylish designed body built on the basic and very humble Austin 7 chassis and motor that Herbert Austin was more than willing to sell. Known as the oldest running “Jaguar” in the US this Austin Swallow is completely unrestored and a good example of the early automobile workmanship of its era. Several thousand of these small cars (less than 800 were sports) were sold and helped lay the financial foundation company we know today as Jaguar.  

Taken at The Hilton Head Island Concours d'Elegance.

1952 Ferrari 212 EL

The legend of Ferrari dates back to 1940.  That year marks the birth of the Type 815 for use in the substitute Mille Miglia event. Ferrari went into production in 1946.  Initial production was for racing, street cars came later.

The 212 series was initially offered in 1951 and continued into 1952.  Production was approximately 90 cars.  The cars featured a 2.6 liter V-12 double overhead cam engine, front disc and rear drum brakes and unique carburation depending on whether they were domestic (one Weber) or export (three Webers).  The engine produced 140 horsepower.

The current owner has enjoyed this car for over half a century.  As far as he knows, it is the only three window coupe that was built on a Ferrari chassis by Ghia.

1931 Cord L29 Cabriolet

The Cord L29 was the first production front wheel drive car produces in the USA.  E.L. Cord owner of the Auburn Automobile Company, wanted a car priced between the Auburn and the Duesenberg cars.  The L29 was also the first production car with a unit power plant of engine, transmission, differential and front brakes as one unit.

I took the current owner 17 years to restore this car, doing everything himself. The car received a First Place Primary Award at the ACD Annual Meet in 2012.

Story
Tagline
but it's not like that; I never knew nothing about no Mississippi. - Buddy Guy
Introduction
I am a Northern California Expat living in a rural southern county covering 651 square miles on the Florida, Georgia border located between the Okefenokee Swamp and Isles of Cumberland.

To pay the bills these days I work in a Training Academy full time during days and also run two small software companies, PSM Quest– Photography Studio Management Software and The Motif Collective. The Academy work is the best job I have ever had and Quest was a personal challenge to take an idea, personally design, develop/test and then take it to market. It will never dominate the market vertical but we have grown quite nicely in a very short time on an international level. The Motif Collective is an online Fine Art Competition gallery dedicated to monthly Photography Contests.

I love nature, steel, blues, technology, imaging and anything that fits in the lens of a Camera!

My photography is online at Adams Views Imaging.

My favorite Printer is CG Pro - hands down off the scale affordable canvas prints for pros!
