Drivers of New York: Rocky

A photographic portrait of America’s most unlikely car lovers.

No matter the shape, no matter the make, no matter the era, The Drive and Classic Car Club have a love affair with the automobile. Somewhere under those steel roofs and carbon engine covers, there’s a personality. It might be that of a champion, or perhaps, more like your recovering alcoholic Uncle Eddie. But it’s undeniably there.

And thus, the birth of this photographic column. These are snippets, little insights into the life of a car and, more importantly, those of the people who own them. There will be no rolling prose, no feature-length interview. Just an automobile and its owner, as seen through the lens of Finnish phenom Tuukka Koski.

“In two weeks, we’re driving to Ocean City, so I wanted to have some work done on it. Today I’m getting tint work. In about an hour, it’s getting a Bulldog chip. I like to keep on improving it with things like M3 bumpers... I painted the wheels myself. They came out pretty good.”
