 The 1969 Nissan R382. I absolutely loved this car as it reminded me of something out of Speed Racer, the Japanese anime  about racing. Designed and built by Nismo, the performance wing of Nissan, the R382's sole reason for existence was to compete and win the Japanese Grand Prix - which it did, dominating the field by taking the top two positions in the 320-mile race. Nissan’s most feared rivals, including Porsche and Toyota, were left in the dust. Go Speed Racer, Go! 

Nissan Heritage

I had the amazing opportunity to photograph some of the cars collected in the Nissan Heritage Museum in Japan. Being there was a dream come true for me. I kinda went crazy in there, but in a good way. These are just two of the many cars I shot  for them and TBWA/ChiatDay, L.A.

 This image above 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.
