I was honored again this year to have four of my images, of the best 50 chosen, to be considered for Sports Car Digest’s Best Vintage Car Racing Photo of 2016. Since 2009, SCD has celebrated the photographs they publish by choosing the top 50 and having the readers chose from these.  Selecting the top 50 certainly isn’t an easy task for them, but with the list being narrowed down, SCD is asking for your assistance in picking the best vintage car racing photo.

… I Wish I Was

Bullet proof.. I Wish I Was

Limb by limb and tooth by tooth
Tearing up inside of me
Every day every hour
I wish that I was bullet proof

Wax me
Mould me
Heat the pins and stab them in
You have turned me into this
Just wish that it was bullet proof

So pay the money and take a shot
Leadfill the hole in me
I could burst a million bubbles
All surrogate and bullet proof

And bullet proof
