View Full Version : TurboVan photo shoot!

10-10-2012, 10:21 PM
Had the pleasure of spending the morning with Slowleak (Adam from Washington) while he did a pro photo shoot of Turbo at an old vacant gas station here in town. We talked at the Nats and he was nice enough to make time in his busy schedule of photography to squeeze me in.
We had quite an audience as a parade of locals stuck in construction traffic were ogling us.
He sure has a lot of trick equipment, including radio-controlled remote flash units.

Thanks, Adam!

whoa man! that's awesome, and it was a frikin' fun shoot too. Afterwards I drove over to Ventura, got a gun pointed at me (yay!!) and then shot Johnny's fantasticaly red 1st gen on the Pacific Coast Highway. Awesome, just awesome. Surfers in the backgound, ludicrously sweet van in the foreground. Two more vans to shoot tomorrow, two more on Saturday and then... probably a couple more! Thanks for posting these and great hanging out with you again - I look forward to more updates about Taco! - Slowleak

Just got finished shooting Rollin' Heavy Magazine's 3rd Gen, a sweet sweet Chevy with a 400 and a lot of history... and just about the nicest collection of vintage stickers on the inside of the rear doors and the ceiling.

Those are 15 X 12" Cragar SuperLite II's, with 5" or 5-1/2" backspacing (can't remember), and BFGoodrich P295-50 T/A's.
Trolled ebay for two years looking for those wheels...
She can actually break 'em loose in 2nd gear.
