I was searching through a few folders trying to find a photo when I ran across this one. We shot it during a SHRA Magazine shoot as an extra car for the magazine.
If you don’t know, the truck above in the main photo is owned by Kenneth Elliott who ended up coming out that day and spending a few hours with us.
Ken unexpectedly passed away right in the middle of us editing our last magazine. It is still shocking to me that he is gone. (My heart goes out to his family.)
It is never “the time” to talk about things like this but I just had to pass on one of the photos we took that day. I just happened to shoot this one with one of our Spokane Hot Rod Girls (Patricia) as an extra photo.
Her expression / pose in the first picture sure expresses now what I’m feeling about him being gone. I just had to share it for you all. We are a hot rod family here at the SHRA. We truly miss Ken and his humor.
May his memory live on in all of us. RIP, Hot Rod Brother. – Darrin Marion
