Andrew Miller  Philadelphia based Industrial Designer and aspiring photographer with a car problem.

Today is my father's birthday. As I'm sending his "gift" to @thestrokeassociation in his memory, I've been reminiscing about the past couple of months and the neat little quirks of life that present themselves if you're paying attention.

For as long as I could remember my dad had a matchbox toy-sized Alfa Romeo tipo 158 on his dresser (it was the one car I couldn't play with, but I did). When we buried him, that was one of the items that I sent with him. •
Fast forward a few years and this moment really cemented what the power of photography is for me. While the real 158 is beautiful on it's own; these simple snapshots are of so much more than just the glossy red metal in front of me. Happy birthday, Dad.

I don't have a wide angle lens for my real camera, so this will have to do. It's so raw compared to the e39 and I love it and cant wait to get it really road worthy (besides neighborhood spins)

I don't get to see these often (ever). Such a wild car. Designed by an American working in an Italian design firm for an Argentinian-born Italian. So of course it has a ford v8 in it...

Simple geometry and color blocking.

I love old motorcycles. So much character and simplicity. Shot walking around the pits of the #coatesvillegrandprix a couple weekends ago.

My #inktober goal will be to be illustrate every vehicle I've owned. (No I dont have enough for every day of the month).
My first car, a '94 Ford Probe GT.
Proportions are a bit off, but hey, I have a work presentation in a few minutes.

At the office today doing some design work for a deadline early this week.
Here's a dude sitting in his office on the weekend too.

Happy 5th birthday to this handsome couch potato. #greyhounds #50mmphotography #petoji #exracer

Motorsports must have been wild in the 30's. Skinny tires, big engines, no safety features... here's a 1936 Moyers Bear Special driven by DL George at the #coatesvillegrandprix
