This is Matt Farah’s L.A.-canyon-spec Fox Body Ford Mustang, about as perfect as a 1980s Mustang can be. As is only appropriate, here it is shot by the inimitable Larry Chen using film equipment of the day.

The whole thing is up on Speedhunters, and I don’t want to take any eyes away from that site. Head over there to see the whole thing shot on lovely Kodak Portra, off an old Nikon and a Leica.

DISCUSSION

I always thought Matt Farah was kind of a douche, a lighter version of Richard Rawlings. I then met him when he was racing at a Lemons event at Sonoma. Just happened to be next to him in the stands and struck up a conversation. Was really nice and normal. after about 5 minutes he said nice to meet you and invited our team to his site for a beer after the race. Just reaffirms the axiom, “don’t judge a book by it’s cover”.
