Charles Le Brigand who shot the above photograph writes:
Errol was on his way to a car show in Coney Island when I stopped him on Nostrand Ave. He smoothly turned down the volume of the stereo and said – “sure, where should we do this?
“Follow me” I said.
While on my bike, I mentally scanned through the neighborhood to find the right location for the shoot. I was looking for a clear, uniform background so the cherry-red color of Errol’s 1968 Catalina could really pop out. And this plain metal fence was just perfect.
Errol told me that his Pontiac is the only model registered in the State of NY and that he had won several trophies in local classic car shows over the years. He invited me to the next one in the Bronx and I told him that I would be crazy to refuse a ride through the boroughs in this exquisite classic.
