Go Behind the Scenes At America’s Greatest Failed Supercar Company

The company never managed to find success, but it produced some gloriously weird, genuinely quick supercars during its brief existence from 1989-1993, helping it earn cult status. A recently uncovered documentary from Motoring TV profiles Vector and its founder Gerry Wiegert in 1992, and it’s a glorious relic. It was during this time Vector actually managed to get a few of its nearly $300,000 W8 Twin Turbos into the hands of customers. Like all of Vector’s cars, the W8 was designed to…

If ever there was a sport that required rapid fire photography, Formula One racing is it. Which makes what photographer Joshua Paul does even more fascinating, because instead of using top-of-the-range cameras to capture the fast-paced sport, Paul chooses to take his shots using a 104-year-old Graflex 4×5 view camera.
