Depth of Speed was born from a desire of story, travel, and a love of anything automotive related. Next year my wife and I will be taking to the streets to uncover and document the greatest stories from the automotive world. From coast-to-coast and from top to bottom, finding the best stories will take the highest priority. Every time I meet someone new or attend an event I amazed at the depth, passion, and love that the automotive world brings. Depth of Speed is just that, an in-depth look at these stories. There is something about motors and machines, that to an outsider looking in, would make us seem plain crazy.
We have begun the process of outfitting our trusty Scamp trailer to traverse the entire country. Known affectionately as a fiberglass egg, our Scamp will be our home for one year of our lives. At only 13 feet long it will make for a cozy year.
Episode two of Depth of Speed takes us to pinstriping shop of Andy Kawahara. Known succinctly as Andy's Pinstriping, his craft is a true unification of art and automotive. Josh Clason speaks with Andy regarding why he loves pinstriping and how the old crowd has embraced the artform. While most will unanimously agree, the art of pinstriping much like sign painting is a dying breed due to the vinyl industry but with that comes glimmers of hope.
A Film i shot about Dustin Kott,
the Californian bike builder who makes custom British style Cafe racers out of old japanese bikes.
I met Dustin in LA on a Harley-Davidson shoot, and was intrigued
how a classic American who looks like he should be building
Choppers, was passionate about little old Brit bikes,
and was using cheap 70s Japanese bikes to make lovely custom Cafes.
