In case you were sleeping late and missed Old Car City USA on CBS Sunday Morning, here is a link to the video on the CBS website:
This Sunday, August 9th, at 9:43am, CBS Sunday Morning will be airing a piece on Old Car City USA featuring Dean Lewis and his family as they discuss the history and meanings behind Old Car City. Earlier this summer, Tracy Smith from CBS Sunday Morning, came to visit Dean and his family at Old Car City. They spent several days touring and filming in Old Car City and interviewed Dean and the family as well as photographers who were making images at Old Car City. So if you are up and moving this Sunday, please tune into CBS Sunday Morning on you local CBS affiliate.
Richard Green came to visit us at Old Car City recently and made this wonderful video, Thanks Richard!
Don’t forget that Old Car City is also a fantastic background for Portrait Photography. The possibilities are endless. Check out a few of these portraits.

Hope to see you soon!
Over the last several weeks, Old Car City has seen some interesting visitors drop by to interview Dean about Old Car City and to just take some fine pictures. I was fortunate enough to be able to meet both visitors and spend a little time with them.
Our first visitor is a celebrity in the Photoshop circles. Pete Collins is one of the “Photoshop Guys” at Kelbyone training, which is an online training resource for Photoshop. Pete also is the co-host of Photoshop User TV and has a regular column in Photoshop User Magazine. Pete was about midway through a week long photography trip with some friends when they stopped by to shoot at Old Car City. I look forward to seeing some of his images from Old Car City being used in some of his new tutorials. Pete is a great guy and I highly recommend his workshops and classes. We had a great conversation about layers and using some of the great rust and patina on the cars as a texture layer.
Our next visitor was Marissa Gawel, recipient of the National Geographic Young Explorer’s Grant. Marissa, along with Penn Greene, are traveling throughout the country seeking out and documenting America’s Road Side Attractions. From Marissa,
“We’re looking to understand the role of the attractions we’re visiting-withing their cities and withing the greater context of American culture. The creators of the sites built their museums, homes, and art for reasons that vary from the spiritual to the entrepreneurial, but, regardless, have brought their towns new narratives and new business. I’ve found the creations we’ve seen so far are incredible, and speak to the creative spirit of this country”
The weather this weekend is shaping up to be great! Head on out to Old Car City this Saturday and make some images to add to your portfolio. We look forward to seeing you soon.
Don’t forget to check out the current issue of Hot Rod Magazine. It has an article with images made at Old Car City. Well worth checking out.
