It's kind of an interesting story...

September 09, 2022

I've technically never owned a car.

But, I have this thing for cars.

Especially forclassic cars.

Nope, the car I drove in high school and college doesn’t count because that was courtesy of mom + dad (thank you!).

I learned to drive stick shift on my dad’s kit-car Austin Healey affectionally called “Blackie”. Oh that engine purr and pure power…and no power steering or automatic breaks!

Then soon after learning how to drive manual on "Blackie", my dad (FINALLY) finished a years long project of building his own Austin Healey kit-car. This time the car was automatic and fire red...but still no power steering or automatic breaks! We named the car "Furia Roja", or "Red Fury" in English, and it was equally as dreamy to drive.



That is when it decided to turn on... 😂

So even though I've technically never owned a car, my love for cars was passed down to me from my dad thanks to those kit-car Austin Healeys.

Totally makes sense that I love to photograph classic cars now, right?!

But enough about me, let's get to get to the good part...photos of dreamy cars, including "Furia Roja", in my newly released Adventure Awaits print collection!
