Autoweek: The car guy legacy lives

We hold a special place in our hearts for good people. For good car people, that place is larger and ever more dear.

If you need proof, take a look at the story we did on Terry Chandler, a two-car NHRA team sponsor, whose financial windfall benefits Make-a-Wish and Infinite Heroes with 3,000-hp billboards.

At Autoweek, we occasionally take up important causes to us that help our own -- Car Guys. When you learn about Jim Marshall, you might want to dig into your pockets. We know we will.

HuffPost: 'The Haight: Love, Rock and Revolution'

Jim Marshall's success as a photographer can be attributed to his insistence on one non-negotiable term from his subjects:

Access to everything.

"He'd rather not be paid and not eat than not have total access," says Amelia Davis, his former assistant.

Publishers Weekly: "The Haight," a gorgeous collection of photographs

Publishers Weekly: "The Haight," a gorgeous collection of photographs.

This gorgeous collection of photographs (most of them black and white), by one of the pioneers of rock photography, documents the epicenter of the countercultural revolution: San Francisco's Haight District in the mid- to late-1960s.

The photos are, for the most part, arranged in chronological order, enabling readers to witness the optimism that was embodied by the rise of the hippie movement, as well as its grim decline. Selvin (Summer of Love), an author and longtime pop music reporter for the San Francisco Chronicle, accompanies Marshall's remarkable photographs... more
