I find myself constantly fascinated by the class, style and elegance of classical vehicles. As a child growing up in Africa, these were things I only saw on TV. Now living in San Francisco, I have been privileged to see and capture their beauty. My Dad was a lover of cars, we had 7 cars in our parking lot and my dad would constantly rave about the uniqueness and craftsmanship of cars that he was interested in. These were not the cars of our time but he knew of their aesthetic appeal so anytime he had the chance he would talk about them. My dad passed away in June 2014, his heart gave up on him while he slept. Since then, the things he loved always remind me of him: his music, his dancing and his love for cars. He stirred up my interest in classical cars; they are truly iconic of American Transportation.
