Who We Are

Larry Thorson has been photographing the world since before you were born. He has always been a sucker for a sweet looking car. He likes to catch them out in the "wild." Failing that, he tries to capture the emotion and gravitas (or absurdity) of a car when it's on display. Metro Phoenix is ideal for both, as the survivor car and collector car auction center of the world. Likewise, he is always on the lookout for an intriguing street scene. Rather than elaborate staging, he tries to capture the spontaneous ephemeral moments that are otherwise lost in a blink. His work is on display across the web.

Wednesday’s WTF Moment

A “present,” found behind my left front tire at the end of the day on Wednesday.  Spike/hook up.  If it’s a present from a fan, we prefer a tasty sandwich from Sacks.  Or cash.

This is Not Your Father’s El Camino

or his Hummer SUT. This is the Isuzu Axiom XST.  Basically this is the last gasp for relevancy of a failing company.  It’s cool that it exists.  It’s cool that the Petersen Museum has it, and that it just hangs out in the parking ramp.  But, it seems about as useful as the aforementioned Hummer for any cargo.  (Except for toting a fridge. maybe.)
