goodbye 2012

Since all the important newspapers, magazines and blogs post their end-of-year reports, I thought I'd join the festivities with something slightly less relevant: my favorite shot of the year. It didn't took me long to come up with it: Laurent's mighty 1932 Roadster staged on an old military airfield with the swiss alps making for an equally majestic backdrop. See you guys in 2013.


simply beautiful

I never posted this shot before. Mostly because I was hoping to have it published together with some other pics I took that day – but it didn't make it. So, here it is for you to enjoy. An example of simplicity: Mark Garza's unmolested 1946 Ford in a wonderful factory color, a subtle lowering job and tastefully chosen wheelcovers. I thought I'd follow this example when taking the picture: no fancy angles, no artificial light, no photoshop editing. Just as simple as that.


wheels are everything

I thought I'm fully aware of the impact wheels have on the look of a car. But I keep getting blown away everytime I see the transformation that can be done by simply putting on different wheels and tires. Even though I liked the factory wheelcovers a lot I kinda felt those 14 inch wheels were too tiny for that wagon. And since I always liked the look of chrome reverse wheels and chromed OEM steelies, I celebrated my own little x-mas party today. I'm absolutely stoked, also because it took me days to figure out the perfect tire size and it seems the choice I made turned out right. My apologies that they're only radials, but lookwise they are as bias-ply-ish as they get. Now where did I put that box with the lowering blocks?

Stoked to see some of my work in issue 24 of the french PowerGlide Magazine. Coming soon...


longing for a longroof

The Lowtech headquarter recently moved to sunny San Clemente, California. And if you're familiar with this part of the planet, you know that it's got the perfect climate for well aged automobiles. You don't have to worry about snow blocking your garage door. Hell you can even drive your old heap in December without fearing it's all gonna be rusted away in January. So when we needed a staff car that fits right in with the local vibe we knew what it had to be. There are just some minor adjustments needed when it comes to stance and wheels and that longboard sticking out of the rolled down tailgate window...

christmas on the moon

Finally I found some time to upload my favorite shots from the big Mooneyes X-mas Party. If you like them, there's more in the slideshow. Now we're ready for the holiday season.

back from the moon

Just got home from my first Mooneyes X-Mas Party. Damn that was a lot of cars, but the best part was meeting a lot of old friends and making new friends. More pics coming soon.
