I'm always looking for cool photos. Sometimes that means hanging with a beekeeper, other times it means photos of a local world champion windsurfer. A couple of weeks back Jess and I noticed a rather large number of Porsches making their way past our house, a total parade of expensive cars. After a little internet digging, it turns out that there are a ton of autocross and car events at the old Devens Airfield. So Mike and I took a ride over to an event the BMWCCA's Boston branch was holding to see if there might be an opportunity to shoot some cool portraits of the drivers.
Like any hobby, the range of possibilities is endless, all the way from, "Nothing on this car is from the factory except for the engine," (the first Mini pictured below) to, "This is pretty much stock except for some fancy tires." I could even have taken my RSX out and done my best Top Gear impression if I'd bought or borrowed a helmet. (Also check out the awesome, "I am the Stig" shirt below. That's definitely going on my shopping list.) My favorite car might have been the Honda Civic though - you have to love it when you can see a $300 car on the same course as a $130,000 + Porsche GT3.
Special thanks is due to Dave for coming along to assist and translate general car jargon for the less mechanically inclined of us.
