Story and photography by Sangrok Kim
Ever since I was six years old, my enthusiasm towards cars has never stopped. Seoul, which is the city where I was born and grew up, is not the best place to spot great cars. However, that didn’t stopped me from being patient and determined to seek out the ones that were hiding out there somewhere.
To fulfill my desire for the kinds of cars I rarely had the luck to see, I always went to underground parking lots with some of my friends after our classes were over. We spotted some great cars doing this, and I was amazed and captivated by their designs—of particular interest to me was the Shelby Cobra that I’d come across one day. I can still remember that moment where the reflection of the dim underground spotlight beautifully flowed up through its fender.
