Through the Lens – Highlights & Outtakes from Goodguys’ Steven Bunker
Goodguys was lucky to land Steven Bunker when he joined our media team back in 2015. A lifelong car kid, Steven grew up around drag strips – his name may sound familiar because his grandfather is Bob Bunker, a Pro Mod pioneer who piloted the “Folsom Flash” ’55 Chevy from the ’70s through the ’90s. Steven’s father, Bob Bunker Jr., heads up Bunker Motorsports and is a regular in the West Coast racing scene, building chassis and race cars for more than 30 years.
With genetics like that, it’s no wonder Steven has a passion for both cars and motorsports. In addition to helping his father and honing his fabrication skills at Bunker Motorsports, Steven began shooting photos at the drag strip in the early 2000’s and capturing the action with his Canon camera. What he saw through the lens is what first captured our attention and led to an official invitation to join the media team. Steven’s creative eye and knack for finding four-wheeled action have made him a true asset to Goodguys. He’s logged countless miles on the road attending events and continues to refine his photography, learning new skills and upping his game every season.
We asked Steven to share a gallery of a few favorite images for this installment of Through the Lens. Not only will these photos give you a taste for his talent, but they also offer some insight into the interests and personality of a key player creating the content you see in the Goodguys Gazette and on FuelCurve.com.
