The Windy Bull

The Windy Bull Been wanting to do one of these frontal treatments on a first generation junkyard Toronado for a while now.

Police Call

With all the rain this month I wasn’t sure if I was gonna get out for the full moon. I squeaked out a night at the junkyard between storms and was rewarded with big reflective puddles and fast moving broken clouds. And mud. Lots of mud. A pile of wrecked Fresno cop cars, during several […]

Cranbrook Ghosts

1951 Plymouth Cranbrook. Another barn find at Big M, John had just trucked it in that day from some farm in the valley. It was a beat up, rusty old bomb, with almost all of its chrome gone. These are the left and right front fenders, just behind the front tire. I like it’s delicious […]

The Five Steps

The Five Steps Rooting around in folders, oh yeah, I remember this night in 2015, sneaking around at the abandoned Alameda Naval Air Station. Stairwell in one of the barracks. Late at night, total darkness through the fish-eye, lit with Protomachines flashlight.
