Autocar and Driver

When I was explaining the theme of this blog - the relationships between people and their vehicles, and the ways that people use and identify with their cars (and trucks), a friend asked me (she's not that into cars), "Is this going to be about how people look like their dogs?"

Well, not exactly, but kinda. People do pick vehicles that suit their personalities. Most of the time we have to infer their personalities from the car, because we don't get the chance to talk to them.

When I find them together, I like to make a picture of that.

This is an old picture, but I remember distinctly meeting this gentleman at a rest stop in southeastern Michigan. Great guy. No nonsense.

He was quite amused that I asked to take his portrait with his rig.

I'd like to meet his dog.
