I'm Courtney. I'm a freelance automotive photojournalist and creative photographer. I've got an insatiable drive to experience vintage cars to their fullest potential (whatever that may be). This is Vintage Modders!
Without much further intricate introduction: I'm here to talk about old cars, basically. Old lowered cars, old chopped up cars, old German cars, old Japanese cars, and pretty much anything else from the 1980s and earlier. My golden age is the 1970s, and you'll find that I have a specific love of Datsuns and BMWs from those years.
This is a place where you can come to share photos of your project 240Z, or your concourse level E9. Got a patina kissed 80s Toyota pickup? That's great, too. While I have a penchant for the cambered and lowered, I can absolutely appreciate the beauty in a generously stock classic. It's important to remember the historical and social value of these cars, and not simply slam them to the ground without a thought otherwise.
Additionally, this isn't just a place for street cars. There are few things that get my heart racing more than a painfully loud, gasoline enveloped race car. The history and memories tied to race cars are so valuable, and I strive to learn the most I can about every race car I encounter.
While I enjoy photographing and writing about a variety of cars, I also aim to have some fun with my own cars. I have a 1973 Datsun 240Z and a 1980 BMW 732i, both projects.
(Sadly one of the only recent photos of the Z - that will change soon!)
Also, keep in mind: this is not a place to criticize other people's build styles. If you don't like airbag suspension or you think old BMWs are hunks of scrap metal, this probably isn't the place for you. Relentless negativity and unnecessary rudeness will result in removal from the Tribe. Short and simple!
All that said, I thank those of you who are already part of my Tribe, and welcome all of you who would like to find community through your obsession for classics!
