344. Depth of Speed - A Little Americana. 
Jul 1, 2011 at 04:53PM

Just in time for the 4th of July, comes Josh Clason's Depth of Speed series. Here's how he introduces this series on the video site: "Depth of Speed was born from a desire of story, travel, and a love of anything automotive related. Next year my wife and I will be taking to the streets to uncover and document the greatest stories from the automotive world. From coast-to-coast and from top to bottom, finding the best stories will take the highest priority. Every time I meet someone new or attend an event I amazed at the depth, passion, and love that the automotive world brings. Depth of Speed is just that, an in-depth look at these stories. There is something about motors and machines, that to an outsider looking in, would make us seem plain crazy."

So he and his wife set out for a year on the road pulling a 13 foot trailer as a base form which to live and to capture these stories. So far they have released three short films. The production value is top-notch as is the storytelling, even if you're not one who is normally excited by things automotive. The first video below highlights the work of Andy the pinstriping artist, and is my favorite of the three. What a craft. The other two aren't shabby though either, focusing on Chris Davenport of Salt Flats Speed Shop and Andy Carter founder of Pangea Speed, a custom motorcycle outfit.

If nothing else, this series makes me want to get out on the road this weekend. Enjoy and happy 4th from Graphicology.
