For the Love of Cars

Photos and Words by Car Street Journal

To really be a kick ass automotive journalist or an automotive photographer you need to be able to have a good time! Too often we find ourselves stuck working twelve hour days, out in the sun, on the track, at a show, usually covered in tire dust or desert sand… We travel a lot, neglect some responsibilities of “normal people” like chores and laundry after a long day… But its totally worth it because its all for the love of cars.

Here at Car Street Journal, we like to be professional, but that doesn’t mean we can’t have a good time! For Example….
