About Scotty Gilbertson

I've always been a car nut; probably driving my parents crazy by calling out cars from the backseat of our '56 Pontiac as a kid and I never grew out of that. I still do that when I'm in the car by myself now, which I am for 40,000+ miles a year as an architectural photographer. I gave up on architecture because I love photography even more and it involves travel and we were always in the car or our camper going somewhere. I still love a road trip and I'm usually on one for about 150-200 days a year. I've gravitated towards unusual vehicles in the last decade or so. Even though I absolutely love everything related to all vehicles (old, new, big, small, cars, trucks, motorcycles, snowmobiles, and boats powered by gas, diesel, hybrid, ev, pedal, etc.), anything small and unusual is really what catches my eye lately. Cars like Crosleys, King Midgets, anything AMC or Nash, first-generation Falcons - or vintage Japanese cars and even oddball, vintage EVs like the Comuta-Car or the Elcar Zagato. I'm of the school of thought that any true car guy or gal has room in their heart for any vehicle, even if they personally have no interest in it at all. Just respecting the opinions of others on the vehicles that they like and not assuming that someone else's vehicle choices are somehow inferior; that's my vision of the perfect world. Oh yeah, and I guess I should say, world peace, ending hunger, and things like that, too.. but cool, old cars first!
