Talk about the perfect session! When this family reached out to me about doing a combination family and automotive session, I accepted immediately. I was so excited to be able to pair both sides of my work together. We were treated to perfect Houston springtime weather, and the kids had a blast playing with their parents and their gorgeous 1965 Ford Mustang. We hope more sessions like this come along soon!
So excited to finally be able to share the news that my images have made the cover of Street Trucks Magazine! I met with Julio Garcia, the owner of “Coyote Ugly”, a 1970 Ford F-100 Pickup that has been restored into a gorgeous show car. No corners were cut with this beast, and the finish on everything is absolutely top-notch.
So go pick up a copy today to see this beautiful machine in print!
This particular model GT350 is known as the “Holy Grail” of all Hertz Shelby’s, and for good reason. This early production 1966 Shelby GT350H has the earliest serial number of any GT350H with known whereabouts.
A second unique aspect of the early White cars is the absence of the “H” in the sill stripes. Through the magic of time, it is now a virtual certainty that the White cars all received the standard “GT350” stripes, as there has never been any photographic or other documentation of any White car originally finished with GT350H stripes. Even though it has long been rumored that H-stripe kits were available, none have ever surfaced.
A few weeks ago I got the chance to shoot two All-American icons here in Houston. Although they come from the same family, these two are very different animals. The GT500 has become more of a refined beast over the years, although calling it so may still be against the rules. Still no slouch to 60mph (4.1 seconds), the 2011 GT500 had a weight savings of over 150 pounds thanks to a new all-aluminum engine block. Even with its live rear axle, the car handles crisply and cleanly. The blue-on-white paint job is perfect for this car, and the white shows the sharp lines that make this generation Mustang so aggressive.
