Photography It’s been 12-13 years and I’m still mad at Larry for leaving his window open.

I found an old hard drive with a ton of pics from 05/06. I was instantly filled with rage when I saw his back window open in this one. Lol. The CSVT guys should remember this day at US41.

What happened to the SVT lightning? I don't think I've seen one on the road in ages. Those were such cool trucks.

Too bad they don't make photo editing software for old pictures.

Doesn’t make it any less frustrating. If I have to edit a photo to make it good, then I need to just go ahead and put the camera down.

It died in ‘04. Not sure why.

They rusted away, like the rest of the f150's

What happened to Larry? I haven't heard much from him.

Hows your buddy Chris doing?

I’ve got news for you. I’d put money on every single professional photograph you see has been edited. Extensively. Nothing come straight off a camera and gets published. Nothing. You can take fantastic photos but the enology to edit lets them be perfect.

I will say they probably would have sold more if they'd have stuck some Manley rods in the bottom end like they did with the Cobras. They were cool trucks though.It's kind of amazing to me that even "mundane" trucks now make nearly the same power that these did.

I'd be mad the at the white one for running a front license plate.
That's what stands out to me at 1st glance.

I’m aware. That’s why I’m not a professional photographer. If you’re gonna edit your shit that heavily, why not just make it from scratch and draw something?

Mannnn I have some old pics from MSC, maybe i'll dig them up today. I was there the day that pic was taken, I have a pic of me and Victor as well as a few others I think

I was 18 years old with a slow (but clean!) 2v GT on a 100 shot, brand new to CSVT. I love that I still hang out with friends that I first met online 12 years ago lol

Kevin! Good to hear from you man. It’s been a long time!

He is doing well. He got married about a year and a half ago and just had a baby.
Awesome. Glad to hear he's doing great!

Is this Larry, Larry Hamilton from Speed Inc.? I don't recall him owning a blue Lightning. But he changed cars so often... :D

If so, I can kinda fill in some things as I know/knew him and he lived up the street from me.

No no. Larry formerly of Speed Inc (didn’t he jump ship to AMS a few years ago?) is a great dude. This Larry was....a turd burglar.

Yea, he did go to AMS.

Last I heard he was in Kansas City area or something like that. His son likes to play with my kids and dog, so that is what he last told me.

Funny though, Larry's now ex wife has a white Lightning in the garage. :D
