I drove to Raleigh yesterday to photograph a 1986 Mustang GT for the new Fox Mustang Magazine. The owner, Jeff Keisner, of Comdon Autosport, was very easy to work with. He let me have the 21,000-mile hatchback and sales guy Greg Romano for the afternoon. We found an unfinished stretch of road that was closed to the public, and I enjoyed a rare stress-free photo shoot. This short clip of video includes a couple of sneak peeks from the shoot.
The ’86 will be featured in the first issue of Fox Mustang Magazine. For more information about this new title, visit this link.
Ah, the joy of getting to a TV station at 6:45 a.m. on a Sunday! Well, at least I didn’t have to load a car on a trailer like the folks who generously brought this Toyota rock crawler. Bill and Judy Vickers also set the alarm clock to drive out in their 1957 Chevy.
This short clip was coordinated to promote the fall version of the 2011 Food Lion AutoFair at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
This video clip is from a documentary made for French television by Stephane Munka, who visited the United States for several weeks to put together a story on the 1968 Mustang that Steve McQueen drove in the movie Bullitt.
Stephane, his videographer, and I spent the day talking about my accidental discovery of the Mustang in 1990 and touring a little of the Concord, N.C., car culture. I also introduced them to southern comfort food at a local restaurant. We finished the day with some car-to-car videography, which marked my first time to be a driver in such an exchange. It was a fun day.
Stephane tells me the version you see here gives more weight to my speaking. He has turned down his French translation voiceover for the American audience.
I do not get a lot of sleep during the Food Lion AutoFair, although this early morning broadcast was a rarity. Don’t be fooled by the timestamp; we shot this video much earlier in the a.m. By the way, the Dodge Challenger owner is my friend Richard Canter – a local Mopar enthusiast.
This video is the second of two spots WCNC did for the speedway to promote our Food Lion AutoFair. You can see from the timestamp that I was up early for the first day of the show. After my TV time, I went to my office, closed the door, and took a two-hour nap before grabbing some breakfast.
