“It was a highlight for the auction,” says photographer Patrick Fore, who snapped the shot right before the car went on the block. The annual event brought in more than 100 world-class vehicles, including Ferraris, Packards and Corvettes. Fore, who’s also an art director for a local church, was just as taken by the car as the collectors who were haggling over it. “It’s fast, looks good, and the fact that Rod Stewart owned it—awesome.”
