It is our honour on Father's Day to share with your the smiles and machines of Sam Testa and his son Frank.
Months ago we spotted an insane green FG Falcon with the most wicked set of number plates - OATH M8. Young Frank Testa was running his IG page with his insane 700hp barra powered rig and building a some what cult following. I just had to get in touch with him for a photoshoot.
Frank was keen as mustard and during our chat I learned Dad wasn't a Lada Niva driver. Something epic was brewing in my imagination, so it was decided their shed was to be the place.
From the moment I rolled onto their property and met them I knew something special was on the cards. They say impressions are made within the first 20 seconds. I quickly felt the warmth of the most beautiful family you could come across.
I just love how the universe works and sharing space and time with these people was an absolute honour and privilege. Here's a capture of pure Aussie culture, larrikinism, and old fashioned values. Best mates to boot.
I don't care whether you are Holden, Ford or Toyota Corolla...if your heart is not warmed by Sam and Frank then I haven't done my job as a photographer. These blokes are the epitome of Kenoath.
As a sacred space of blokedome it doesn't get any better than an arvo in the shed with cold beers, good blokes and a couple of Aus. muscle cars.
