Thomas has got a smile on his face. He has a beautiful family, lives in his dream home, loves his work, and has a bunny rabbit. But that's not why he's smiling today. Today Thomas is slipping into his limited edition 50th anniversary Porsche 911. Yeah, that'll put a smile on your face.
You're looking at 320mm of Italian steel stopping power made by Brembo. That's 60-0 in 119.5 ft. Cause horsepower don't mean nothin' if you can't stop on a dime.
Hunter S. Thompson called it the Sausage Creature. I call it a Spicy Meatball. Call it what you want, but the Italians call it a Ducati. In this case, a Ducati 900ss (the ss stands for SuperSport).
This is what trying to keep up with an eight year old looks like. Its a constant blur of movement, mixed in with what just happened, and a whole lotta love.
That there is a DeArmond M75T electric guitar with a mahogany neck and body, with a rosewood fingerboard. Its got a Bigsby style tremolo with a gold champagne sparkle finish. Yeah, I'll drink to that.
My brother Mark went and won himself a Sports Clio for his work on the KT Wiz Korean baseball team! He got this fancy trophy sent to him, and I thought to myself I've never photographed reflective metal before...
So as with all awards ceremonies, I'd like to thank all those who made this possible. Thank you Mark Verlander for being a kick-ass brother, designer, and constant source of inspiration. I'd also like to thank the lighting talents of David Turner and Kemachat Sirichanvimol. And of course I'd like to thank my lovely wife Amanda, and our amazing daughter Stella.
Harry Dean Stanton is one of my favorite actors, and as soon as I saw this car it reminded me of the closing scene in Repo Man. Sadie Fortin graciously allowed me to poach this shot from her set–be sure to check out her fantastic automotive photography. Lighting was done by master commercial photographer Kemachat Sirichanvimol. Editing was done by the talented Adam Quiros. The music of course is by The Cars.
I love celebrating the 4th of July in a small town. And Greenfield, Massachusetts really knows how to get it on! There's nothing like really getting up close to the big show, and the view of Poet's Seat Tower from down below on Beacon Field is like no other.
