Is it Car Show Season Yet

The long answer to that question is no and yes. The big summertime car shows are still far away, especially as I look out the window of my office and watch snow falling on Daisy Hill today.



But every second Saturday of the month, The Vehicle Vault in Parker, Colorado sponsors Cars & Coffee and while last winter we were blessed with wonderful weather for these events, this winter the weather has not been as kind. Yet I remain hopeful that the weather at the next event on March 11, will be better. You can find details about the show along with directions and hours on the Vehicle Vault’s calendar here. I plan on being there and hope to meet you there as well.

This beautifully printed coffee table book features the photography of James Mann. Mr. Mann is, I think, one of the finest automobile photographers in the world and if you have seen his work in the wonderful English magazine Classic & Sports Cars, you already know what I mean.Pick up a copy at your local Barnes & Noble and prepare to be amazed to see how a car magazine should look.

Certainly Lamborghini Supercars 50 Years is a splendid example of the sheer artistry of his work. He is also author of the sadly out-of-print (but well worth searching for) How to Photograph Cars that takes you behind the scenes showing how he creates his automotive masterworks.
