  5. I'm the farthest thing from a photographer, but there is something about the great old B&W images that seem more real. How can that be? I mean we see in color, but why does B&W seem more realistic?
  6. ...........Yeah, I loved that..... ad01.jpg

  7. I would imagine you've heard of Ansel Adams...........if not, put your search fingers in gear...........he had a gift for making B&W almost talk.

  12. Looks like that was a very well equipped shop for the day....
  13. Is this the same Rod Emory that is know for building radical Porsche cars? HRP
  14. I would think so. He did/does some "outlaw Porsches". And restorations of vintage Porsches

    dirty old man

    What bounced my memory into gear was "Valley Custom Shop" they did the first sectionin g job I had ever seen and it was depicted in HRM, on a shoebox Ford coupe and I thought, and stll think it was about the slickest and sharpest custom I ever saw.
    Wish I still had that issue, and I may have somewhere in my attic!

    Rod is a great guy. I stopped by to see him in December...a real craftsman!
  21. Some have wondered whether the Valley Custom '32 5w was ever finished, it was but somehow it flew under the radar. This is it in the early 70s dilapidated but a completed car.

    I learn something new every time I jump on the HAMB, great read!
  24. Rod has got his own following as well and is just as talented as his dad and grandfarther. Met him at SEMA this year when he gave a Outlaw badge to a 356 Porsche that a friend of mine built for SEMA . Super cool person very down to earth.

    Rod applies his to equally impressive early Porsches.

    I'm looking forward to meeting Rod this coming Friday at the Porsche Werks Reunion at Amelia. I'll be showing the Dean Jeffries Porsche that Rod's dad Gary has said he saw at an LA auto show in 1961 giving him the inspiration for his "Outlaw" Porsches. Rod will be bringing his latest outlaw and the Gmund coupe he restored for the Pebble Beach Concours. I'll also be on the Amelia Concours field on Sunday - big weekend for me - I'm excited.
