(Photos by Mike Brooks) – It goes without saying that 2015 was my Bangshiftiest year ever. I was fortunate enough to be able to get to many awesome events over the last 12 months. I got to see some amazing cars of all flavors from all over the country. Most of all, I was able to do it making friendships along the way. When I first set out to start taking photos car shows and events years ago, I had no idea of the bonds I’d make with people from all over the world.
From rubbing elbows and becoming friends with guys I’ve only read about in magazines and seen on TV, as well as people and families that have amazing stories about the dream car that they were able build to cruise, show off, or race. I always thought it was the cars that made the hobby so special. I realize more and more, that the people and the love they have for the lifestyle is what makes it truly amazing. It’s a family like no other, and I’m lucky to be a part of it.
