Striped Tomato

Striped Tomato 

Continuing my Americans Abroad theme, this time of a replica  of the infamous Ford Gran Torino from Starsky and Hutch, which was affectionately known as the "Striped Tomato".  As a kid growing up, this was one of the cars we used to dream about, and was as much a leading character of the hit TV show as were the main stars Starsky, Hutch and Huggy Bear. 

End of Life

Latest photography posted on my Flickr Photo Stream

Taken down on the Hastings Fishing beach October 2014. The beach itself is still a working commercial fishing operation base for the Hasting Fishing Fleet. I photographed this van before in 2013 when it still appeared to be in daily use on the beach, and in some ways this was the inspiration behind my Work Horse series. It now appears that the van has come to the end of its useful life and has been put to rest, no doubt to be ingloriously scrapped. So here it is again, captured for posterity in all its banal glory.

Photograph of the front grill of a 1970's Chevrolet Chevelle SS and in the back ground a Ford Mustang 350GT by Shelby. Some fine example of old school American muscle car. This photo was taken last year at Magnificent Motors held on the Western Lawns on the Eastbourne Seafront.
