Vintage cars…works of art.

As time goes by I find myself becoming more and more satisfied with the experience of attending vintage sports car events. The distinctive design and styling of each car helps to create their unique character. Before computers and wind tunnels dictated car design decisions, aesthetics ruled the day. “If it looked good, it was probably fast.”

Here are a few photographs from the Vintage Racer Group (VRG) Jefferson 500 vintage sports car event held at Summit Point Motorsports Park (Summit Point, WV) in May 2009. I approached this weekend with a singular goal…viewing each car as a work of art…and capturing their unique character.

1958 Elva MKII

1962 Aston Martin DB4

1966 Ford Mustang
