KC’s Masterpiece

Datsun B-210, rescued from certain death, by KC, another visitor hanging out at Big M Auto Salvage. Quizzical looks all around when I asked him to stay after dark so I could shoot this car, even tho I was surrounded by hundreds of rare 50s and 60s cars to shoot. It’s been a long time […]
