Click to preview Restorations photo book

Through photographs and imagination, classic cars and trucks come alive to tell all about their past and current lives in "Restorations: Travels Through the Time Tunnel." Along with the photos, fantasy and whimsy combine to paint an amusing picture of life in a boneyard. While all the vehicles have hopes of making it to the restoration garage someday, each, in their own way, becomes a little restored by simply sharing their stories with the author/photographer. Shot in and around Bozeman, Montana, the photographs of these beautiful automotive creations bring back memories of what once was and present glimpses of what could be. One thing for certain that can be said about this work is:

Old cars & trucks never die-
they just invent new stories
