Though his first love is Citroen, he fell for muscle cars after being seduced by 1950s finned flyers—in fact, he’s written two books on American muscle. But please don’t think there is a strong American bias because foreign weirdness is never far from his heart. With a penchant for underground music from the 1960-70s, Diego and his family reside in metropolitan Phoenix.


  1. The kind of farm trucks I remember from my childhood. Used to see them loading up at the feed store across the street from my grandparents house. My uncle had a bit smaller Studebaker stake-bed on his farm. It does not look like it in these pictures, but you should be able to lift those stake-sides up out of their pockets and make it a very useful flatbed when needed.

    • That’s not how it works.
