Got some unused shots from the August 2011 issue of Super Street for you guys today…I’m sure you guys have seen plenty of this car by now. It’s been at all the major Socal car shows and meets this entire summer and has been a consistent winner of award. It’s a very basic set-up in terms of modifications, with a different mix of styles. The build is unique in that it encompasses style traits from a drift-themed S14, with a touch of Japanese VIP styling, and an all-American GM LS1 motor under the hood. One of the coolest things about it is that the car is driven a majority of the time by it’s female co-owner. Peter and Theresa built this thing together but she’s definitely the one that sees the most seat-time in it….
When I first shot these photos, I was pretty happy with the results. It was a pretty quick shoot at a very quiet location. Since the car had a lot of Earth tones to it, I tried to edit the photos in a way where it had a similar feel. For the story, I wanted to have a little fun with it and went a different direction than what most are used to and I think the story complimented the photos well. Overall, I was really happy with how it came out when it hit the newstands. The owner(s) were easy to talk to and chill, the car was easy to shoot, nobody drove by and bothered me while I was shooting since it was a pretty secluded spot…all in all, I had a good time doing it. It’s one of those shoots that remind me how fun my job really is. When the magazine dropped Peter and Theresa couldn’t have been happier with it so that makes the satisfaction of producing a good story even more gratifying. Below is a link to the original story on the Super Street website. If you haven’t seen it, I suggest you take a couple minutes to read it because it’s a pretty cool story. The published photos are also on their site in a pretty large format as well. The ones I have attached are the shots that weren’t used and at the end I’ve also included a 1080P-sized wallpaper for you guys…

That Nardi!!! Where to get one from???
Nice pics for sure! The car is a little to ‘space invader’ for my taste (unsure what direction the car was built in, show/performance/parking lots?) but that paint job is pretty nice!
