November 2018 NTFC Meet

North Texas Foxbody Club Meet

untitled-44-Edit-2-1This month took B&T Garage/BTG Media out Terrell, TX for the monthly NTFC meet. Crown Custom Hot Rods was gracious enough to allow us to tour their shop and utilize their parking lot. untitled-351-Edit-1

The meet started out with a meeting location at the Summit warehouse in Arlington, TX. We gathered there and cruised as a small group out to Terrell for the meet. I was able to capture a couple roller shots on the way.

Big Blue is such a beast! My ears are still ringing from the exhaust note.

Once we arrived at Crown Custom Hot Rods we gathered as usual and had a great time. It’s hard to beat like-minded people, a great shop location, beverages, pizzas and of course awesome Mustangs!

The gathering lasted about 3 hours and then we all headed on our separate ways. We, of course, had to take some roller shots on our way home!

 

If you’re in North Texas and own a Foxbody Mustang, you should really look us up! We’d love to have you join and be a part of the best Foxbody club in Texas!

2018 LMR Cruise – Texas Motor Plex

Took Nate Dog with me to the 2018 Late Model Restoration Cruise. We tagged along with the North Texas Foxbody Club crew and drove down to Ennis Texas to the Texas Motor Plex. The event had drag racing, car show, dyno station, and a burnout contest. I spent the day shooting video, photos, and BS’ing with the guys and gals from NTFC and other clubs. It got pretty hot so Nat and I cut out of there before the raffle and burnout contest started. There’s a vlog video of the event below, I hope you enjoy it, we did!

MMDFW Burger Box Meet

Muscle Mustangs DFW had a small meet at the Arlington Burger Box. It was a fun night and I got to see a bunch of new faces. It’s always good to see all sorts of cars and hear about everyone’s like minded passion, their cars.

In this video we follow a member throughout the night in an interesting perspective of the night. Enjoy.

Photographer?

The last couple of months have been pretty challenging. A bathroom remodel that’s been going on for way to long, the awesome Project 64.5, a massive job role change at work and a new role within the North Texas Foxbody Club.

Like most members of the group, I post numerous photos of my own Fox as well as meet photos. There are many fantastic photographers within the club. So, I was honored when I was asked to be the official videographer/photographer for the North Texas Foxbody Club! What a great to opportunity to highlight the club and members while shooting photos of what we all enjoy, automobiles, Mustangs, and most importantly Foxbodies!

Foxy Molly Build – Replacing Springs

My 89 Mustang, Foxy Molly, already has a new pair of Eibach springs installed. The problem is that I don’t believe they’re actually for my Mustang. The rear-end sits soo high it looks really silly. So, I bought a used pair from Ken with North Texas Foxbody Club. These should help Molly get a better-looking stance!

Week 7 – 52 Week Photography Challenge

Week 7 of the 52-Week Photography Challenge is, “Abandoned was a very popular week in the original challenge. For the advanced challenge tell the story of something forgotten.”

The image I chose for this week was taken on our way home from the Presidents Day Tournament in Colorado Springs. It was snapped on my iPhone 7 Plus somewhere between Raton and Capulin. If you’ve ever driven through this desolate area then you know there’s pretty much nothing out there. Just grass, rocks, rolling hills and very few trees. This homestead is right off of highway 87 and I can guess why it’s abandoned. There’s nothing around, like anywhere. I can just imagine the brutal winters and the wind that never stops blowing at this place. No thank you.

This picture is called, “Pack Your Bags, We’re Leaving!”

Week 6 – 52 Week Photography Challenge

Week 6 of the Dogwood 52-Week Challenge was candy. You are to take a photograph of something considered candy, but you can’t take a photograph of candy. Be creative. Okay, sounds easy enough. The family and I were recently in Colorado for a hockey tournament. Tournaments are pretty hard to do anything, let alone go see friends, family and or go out for a nice dinner. One night while we were there we managed to sneak away, the 3 of use, for an impromptu fancy pants dinner. We drove to Sedalia Colorado to our favorite restaurant Gabriels. Gabriels is a pretty swanky place that serves excellent Tuscan Italian food. This stuff is to die for and this is where my photograph comes from. I consider Gabriels my candy.

They say the best camera is the one you have with you, this is Gabriel’s Candy, shot on my iPhone 7.img_9123-1

Week 5 – 52 Week Photography Challenge

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA The challenge last week was “Shoot 10 shots of the same subject. Each shot should be from a different angle, distance, and focal length. Share your favorite image from the set.” Week 5’s challenge is late, obviously. Work has been so outrageous that I struggled to get 10 shots. Honestly, the photo here is my favorite out of what was 15 shots. I say “was”, because this was shot over a year ago. The one on the right is one of those 15 shots.

These photos are from our family trip to New Orleans. We had a great time there, and no, we did not do Mardi Gras. We spent our time checking out the geat architecture, shopping, and the excellent food.  We also spent a great deal of time just walking the streets of downtown New Orleans. As soon as I saw this street I knew I had to snap a few pics, okay, hundreds of pics. I took them from different angles, lenses, focal points etc.

There was something about the modern setting contrasted by items from days past that caught my attention. I believe these horse heads were used to tie up horses back in the day, the transportation of that era. The funny thing is, they still stand guard over our modern transportation, the lines of unassuming cars packed into every street. Their purpose today is purely decorative and I loved the composition.

Here is my favorite shot from that batch titled, Giddy Up.
