It’s a Porsche!

When I think of Porsche I remember the funny incident from the series F.R.I.E.N.D.S…

___________

Joey finds keys to a Porsche and wants to leave them at the lost and found but nobody seems to miss their keys.

Joey: Hey, somebody left their keys. Oh, to a Porsche! Hey Gunther, these yours?
Gunther: Yeah, that’s what I drive. I make four bucks an hour. I saved up for… 350 years.

Joey gets great responses from people when he stands next to the car. He then goes on to wash the Porsche when the owner comes by and takes it away!

I may not come as close to a Porsche as Joey, but how I wish this was my ride!

I shot the Chevy

1. To have an entire collection of my favorite scale model cars
2. To photograph the intricate details of them and make them come alive!

The first may never be attainable… while I have realized the second with this 1941 Chevrolet Deluxe photoshoot

A little more about scale model cars:
Fully built scale model cars made of die cast metal are very popular among collectors. These models are manufactured in various scales like 1:12,

1:18, 1:24, 1:43, and 1:64, among others.
Larger-scale premium models today are generally made with attention to details which replicate a real model, such as a working steering which steers the wheels in larger models, doors, trunk, and hood that open (the latter showing a detailed engine complete with things such as an exhaust system and/or other items contained in a typical car engine), and tyres mounted on a workable suspension system. In smaller scales some of the details are often eliminated.

Next stop… the Porsche Cayenne Turbo 😉
