IT WAS ONLY A MATTER OF TIME – FLYING CARS
“The 1960s animated cartoon series – The Jetsons – is best remembered for its depiction of a future that just never seemed to get any closer (apart from video phones). And nothing about this future is more lamented than the prolonged absence of George Jetson’s flying electric car. The bad news: There are still no flying electric cars. The good news: Florida is building a place to park them.” Continue reading “”
THANKS FORZA – THE MAGAZINE ABOUT FERRARI
Thanks also… to garage manager Fred Russell, writer Jay Gillotti, and car owner Frank Mandarano (L to R), for making this recent Ferrari Daytona shoot so much fun.
Photographing two Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Spyders together is a dream come true for any car photographer. Only 122+ were made.
Known as the ultimate Jame Bond, here’s a photo of Sean Connery, MI6 agent 007, with his Aston Martin DB5 in the 1964 movie Goldfinger. Continue reading “”
FORD BRONCO + FILSON CAMPAIGN GOES WILD
Bronco and Filson – two iconic American brands with long histories in the outdoors – announced a campaign today where they are joining forces to celebrate wildland firefighters and raise funds to help maintain and preserve America’s natural resources and National Forests. I was asked to pitch in.
See my still shots from last week’s photo assignment of this vehicle for Ford and Filson below. Five million views in the first week! Some say 50 million views, but I’m guessing that might be overall. Continue reading “”
THE PIONEER – ROTHSPORT RACING & PCA
No one knows for sure when Porsche’s 1995 3.8-liter air cooled motor was first transplanted into a pre-1974 early 911.
What we do know is that in late 1999 Jeff Gamroth of Rothsport Racing in Oregon started thinking about constructing a long hood 911 using the most powerful normally aspirated air-cooled flat six available from Porsche.
First you need to establish your goals. Does income from photography matter to you? If not, then join the millions of other people with the same avocation. Continue reading “”
PORSCHE WINS CLASS – JUST MISSES OVERALL VICTORY AT PIKES PEAK
David Donner in his 000 Magazine sponsored Porsche GT2 RS Clubsport took the Time Attack 1 class victory at Pikes Peak this weekend. His overall time of 9:36.559 was just 1.1 seconds away from the overall win. Continue reading “”
A simple car shoot video rig is ideally compact, lightweight, and easy to use. It’s also hopefully not too expensive. After all, it’s your vision and message that will determine the success of any film more than anything else.
Whatever rig you choose, you don’t really want to compromise much on quality – for the camera, the lens, monitor or the audio mic. Continue reading “”
There are very few awards out there for automotive magazine and book designers. If there were more, Richard Baron would have a wall full of trophies and plaques. Continue reading “”
If you really want a change of experience, and you live near Seattle, one option is to take a 4-hour trip east to the wheat fields of the Palouse – but don’t delay. This year’s crop will be cut in a couple of weeks. Continue reading “”
KEEP ON KEEPING ON – WITH A FERRARI MODENA 360
Even though it’s been surpassed by more powerful models, I still admire the Ferrari Modena 360 coupe of 1999-2004. What a perfect shape. Continue reading “”

My sincere thanks to everyone at Pano for all they do.
Afshin Behnia, founder of the popular car site Petrolicious, has stepped down as CEO and says the site is for sale after posting controversial remarks on the Internet. Continue reading “”
TED FIELD AND DANNY ONGAIS Taking the Long Road Home with a Porsche RSR
Article by Randy Wells, Photos by Randy Wells and Others
Forty-Five years ago Porsche’s RSR was the hot ticket for car racing. Of course, joining in the fun has always been easier if you are an heir to one of America’s famous family fortunes.
Ted Field was only 12 years old when his father, Marshall Field IV, a part of the department store dynasty that created a world of affluence for his family, passed away in Chicago. After moving to Alaska with his mother, the young Field decided California was where he wanted to be. So what do you do when you’re well off, single, 21, and living in southern California? Find yourself a Porsche of course – but not just any Porsche. Continue reading “”
