Last week, I shot this great little ’73 Dodge Dart. I couldn’t get over how pristine this car was! What was also remarkable was that a relatively small car would have such a large engine. It has a BIG Dodge 440 in it. Yeah, it growls like it means it.
A lot of owners like to arrive early to the Syracuse Nationals. Although the NYS Fairgrounds are enormous, they fill up quickly when you’re talking about 8,000 cars, plus vendors and tens of thousands of spectators. Many drivers show up before sunrise and line up before the gates open. Catching the first rays of sun as they break over the cars makes for some really dramatic images.
Last year, I was disappointed that I didn’t make my way over to the Autocross at the Syracuse Nationals. This year, I made it a point to spend plenty of time there, and I was NOT disappointed. A friend got me up close and personal to the cars, and even in a couple of them for ride-alongs. It really was quite a thrill. Click the images below to expand.
