Feature: Dodge Coronet

22nd June 2015

  Having been to Gurston Down Speed Hillclimb a few times I thought I had the competition sussed, until now. Whilst it is never going to compete for top honours, John Harrison’s late-’50s Dodge Coronet is simply badass.

The famous flaming exhaust shot was a combo of my steady driving, Richard Clothier-Smith’s bravery and Jamie Lipman’s awesome photography skills. No rigs or Photoshop involved with this image, just the complete disregard of another human being’s safety for your enjoyment.
