Photo Finish

While doing research for his ongoing series on collectors of film and television vehicles, photographer Douglas Sonders climbed behind the wheel of owner (and Speed Racer fan) Len Mosco’s Mach 5 replica:

“In true movie and TV car fashion, it’s made to represent a cartoon vehicle which isn’t always the most ergonomic design. Speed Racer was not a tall guy, so I don’t know how he could see over that long hood or behind him without the help of a rear camera, which this car actually has (it pops up electronically like a periscope).”
