I low-key wonder if y'all guys still think like this yah or nah 🤔🤔😮❤❤

One of the best things about this wonderful family of wheels and steel is the people that you meet and the experiences that you share. As a late-commer into this passion I have a lot to learn and have been continuously inspired by the community and their individual willingness to help each other.
.
This is Timmy McMaster of Hanford Auto and Machine based in Hanford, CA (@yblockguy). I first met Tim when I was on a road with the Rolling Bones crew in 2017. One of the cars (after driving thousands of miles from upstate New York to Bonneville and then heading south to California) had a mechanical issue that required a difficult to source part. Tim drove from Hanford, CA on very short notice to meet the crew in a small town near El Mirage so that the repair could be made in the parking lot. The repair was made, the day was saved and I saw yet another example of how this community is built of good people with a true heart for continuing the passions of hot-rodders begun so many years ago.
.
Tim runs a machine shop called Hanford Auto and Machine and builds beautiful motors and cars built to be driven hard and long. Look him up if you want quality, knowledgeable and honest work done. We need more people and values like this in the world today. Visit http://yblockguy.com/.

This photo was made on large format 4x5” film and a camera made some time in the 1930’s. While I do love the cars, motorcycles and speed it really is the people that inspire me to make photographs.

This is not a staged photograph. This is a moment just before Stacie B. London, AKA @triplenickel555, makes a run at the storied El Mirage dry lake bed. I have mentioned before that I’m always watching to get a glimpse of what it may be like for the drivers moments before being given the go-ahead to fly down the course. The adrenaline, the pre-visualization, the nerves and the focus required to set a record is fascinating to me, as are the incredible people that work so tirelessly to achieve these historic milestones. I just happened to be at the starting line with my ridiculously huge 1930’s 4x5” Graflex as Stacie was preparing for her run. Thank you photography gods.
.
As I have been observing and working to capture on film small glimpses of what it takes and how it feels to be here I am drawn to certain teams and drivers that seem to have that something extra that really draws me in and inspires me to try to share their passion with all of you. Although I have never “officially” met Stacie I have seen first-hand and heard from people that I know and respect just how passionate and dedicated she and her team are to this endeavor, and it’s showing results. With records set and goals achieved I’m sure she’s already moving on to find new records to break and barriers to move.
.
Congratulations on your successes so far and much respect for your dedication and drive to achieve. You are an inspiration and wonderful example of what this sport is and should be.
