“I’ve always marvelled at those who can shape metal like soft butter or the engine builders who keep pushing the boundaries of performance from specifications that were implemented many decades ago. I love how a bunch of blokes will stand around arguing about authenticity, I call these people train spotters, the custodians of culture. Without them I wouldn’t have a job as a photographer following Australian car culture”. — Train Spotters aka Custodians of Culture, Simon Davidson.
