One of the ultra cool things about Bonneville are the number of cool old hot rods and customs that show up on the salt on Saturday and Sunday of the first weekend of racing action. It makes us cringe sometimes because we can’t stand the thought of bringing something cool out here and someday rusting out, but many of these dudes have been doing this for years and come out to hang out and be seen and then clean the hell out of the thing and get it back home. The variety is cool, the style is sometimes traditional and sometimes a bit weird, but always fun to check out. Lots of the these guys cruise the pits, hit the starting line area, and just cruise around the salt looking for anything fun and exciting to check out. Of course they are also there to show off these cool rides, so you’ll often times find groups of them parked together somewhere where everyone will see them and take pictures. Of course we’re ultra glad to oblige and think its pretty cool when we can bring something like this to you on such an awesome blank canvas.
We say blank canvas because the salt is arguably the best thing to shoot a car on ever. With very little shadows, amazing reflection of light, and such nice white to bring out the colors, it is unlikely you’ll find a nicer place to shoot a car that doesn’t involve a giant light box and a coved white room. This place is pure rad when it comes to photos.
