KINGS OF THE ROAD

bugatti-2 Bugatti Type 35. ” … desirable as dark eyed houris never were …” Kings of the Road. Ken Purdy.

The quote is from a book Kings Of The Road, by Ken Purdy, an American automotive writer, which I read about the time I left school. It never left me giving me an insatiable, but unsatisfied appetite, when I was younger for Bugattis and Bentleys – the fastest lorries on the road – but I made do with MG, Riley, Sunbeam, Lancia, Alfa Romeo and even a plush Armstrong Siddeley.

The photography was taken at the Bull Ring in Birmingham, England, with a Nikon F and Ektachrome 64 in about 1982.
