You know how when you’re in the passenger seat while driving on the highway, it becomes a total preoccupation to look at people in the other cars? (And then it’s really awkward when they look back at you? But you still can’t resist?)

Well, Andrew Bush cleverly turned that preoccupation into an photographic project, which he has now turned into a book. Most of the photos were taken in the early ’90s on the highways of LA (perhaps the best place in the country for capturing car culture), so in addition to being an awesome chronicle of people in cars, it’s also an interesting little time capsule of LA in the early ’90s.

Pretty amazing how the cars on the road have changed since then. Time flies, no? Looking at these made me feel old for the first time in my life. Also, why oh why are cars not still painted with those flat colors? I detest the current glittery (truly, look up close, they’re glittery), pearlescent paint colors on cars today.


This gent above was on the highway in Montecito– are you surprised? It’s so perfect. Check out his site for more photos, and for captions– the captions are occasionally hilarious in a very dry sort of way, often for the verb he chooses for “drive” to go with the person.

You can order the book here. [Via Swiss Miss]
