Nissan Heritage Museum

I recently had the amazing opportunity to photograph some of the cars collected in the Nissan Heritage Museum in Japan. Photographing some of these beautiful machines was a dream come true for me. I kinda went crazy in there, but in a good way.

This image is of the classic Datsun 240Z which Edgar Hermann and his co-driver, Hans Schuller, raced in the East African Safari Rally in 1973. It was beat to s**t, which was no surprise given how punishing the race must have been to both driver and car - 3,300 miles over 4 days, in which 89 crews started but only 18 finished. Unbelievable. These guys were insane. I think camels were the least of their obstacles.
