This is my Brother and his first car. We took a short trip up to the Alabama Hills and I took a few photos. Soon after we returned, the car disappeared from a parking lot while he worked. We both still look at red bugs hoping to find it again somewhere.
This photo was picked in a national contest, to be used in a motion picture, “Take Me Home” a romantic road picture.
