This past week, the Pacific Northwest experienced a snow storm which left thousands without power. I was even stranded at home for a little while! I can’t even remember the last time Washington got so much snow! However, as I pondered the situation more, I realized that this could be one of those “lemons into lemonade” moments (or, is that “ice into ice cream“).
There were all sorts of things I could be doing – anything from snow drifting to catching up on a few projects to…snatching some photo opportunities! After walking outside and noticing Ray Stonehocker’s Garage Autohero Datsun 510 under a huge blanket of snow, I knew what I would be doing. I couldn’t miss this opportunity!
If you’re not familiar with Ray’s Datsun 510, (check out his feature that I did awhile back by clicking here). Take a moment to read about the build and see why it’s still one of my favorite 510s and why I’m still a huge fan of the rat rod approach that Ray took to build her. This weather will only add to her patina and build “character” – just as being out in this weather shooting pics is adding to mine! I hope you MotorMavens readers are somewhere warm and toasty dreaming of all the automotive goodness ahead this Spring. I’m sure I’ll be all thawed out by then!
still maintain this and tgay’s 510 are the most fun to look at under the hood. so much work and so much awesome!!
