Cassidy Norris with an Aston Martin V8 Vantage - Photo by Fred Jennings PhotographyShocker Racing first met Cassidy a few months back on good old Instagram.  Cassidy owns Cnorr Vinyl, a sticker and apparel company that had been popping up around the automotive community on IG.  After sharing a few of her photos on the @ShockerRacing IG page, Cass contacted us about what it would take to be one of the official #ShockerRacingGirls.  We discussed the details and began searching for a photographer and a car to work with in the Pittsburgh area.  Finding a photographer ended up being the easy part as Shelby Wolf set us up with Fred Jennings.  Fred was highly recommended by Shelby, as she explained that he was really easy to work with and that he was especially helpful for models with little to no experience.  To view more from Fred Jennings Photography be sure to check out his website: www.1Camera1Lense.com

The hardest part of making this whole shoot happen was finding the right car.  We had quite a few nice cars submitted as possibilities for the shoot but none of them felt quite right.  I wanted to see something different, something that we had not shot with before and don't see a lot of.  Fred, Cass and I were all using our resources to see what we could come up with and finally Cass found the winner.  Cassidy had found someone who put us in touch with Paul who owns this beautiful Aston Martin V8 Vantage Roadster...

Paul tells us that his Aston Martin is a 2007 with some nice tasteful mods.  He added carbon fiber front and rear diffusers along with a spoiler.  Paul also added taillight inserts along with side mirror caps and then finished off the appearance of the Aston with a set of 20" Forgiato Wheels and dropped it 2 inches with HRN Lowering Springs.  He then added a thermal camera that displays through the navigation screen and added a power boost with some computer programming that bumped his horsepower up to 420.

We then took some time to interview the 23 year old Cassidy and find out a little more about her.  Along with owning Cnorr Vinyl, Cass is a restaurant manager from Pittsburgh, PA. You can catch up with her on Instagram: @Cnorr16 or on Twitter: @cassidyy16n

Cassidy Norris with an Aston Martin V8 Vantage - Fred Jennings PhotographySR: What kind of car do you currently drive?
Cass: I drive a 2008 Mitsubishi Lancer GTS - 5spd

SR: What was the first car you owned?
Cass: My first car was a 2001 VW Jetta - 5spd

SR: What is your dream car?
Cass: I have too many to list, but an Audi R8 is right up there!

SR: How did you first get involved in the car scene?
Cass: It all started when my parents forced me to learn how to drive on a manual car!

SR: What is your favorite automotive event of the year?
Cass: Car meets are always fun when I have time to go.  Pittsburgh Cars and Coffee is pretty awesome, even though my Lancer isn't nice enough to be with the fancy cars.

SR: What modeling experience do you have?
Cass: Not much! Haha, I did my first photoshoot for this article!

SR: What is your best asset?
Cass: My sassiness, but I like my butt and my eyes physical wise!

SR: What is your biggest pet peeve?
Cass: Automatic cars.  Even worse, automatic cars that are modified(that are available in stick, if they don't come in stick that's a little different).  Either that or people thinking that I am not a "real" car girl because I have a little plastidip on my car.  I just like Pink and wanted to make a statement with my car!

Bonus facts about Cass, Feel free to call her "Casshole" or Chuck... as in Norris!  Those are a couple of her favorite nicknames that have been given to her!  Casshole, tells us she is a country girl on the inside even though she was named after The Grateful Dead.  Cass, loves to drive random cars as much as possible and secretly wants to be a racecar driver!

I want to say a huge thanks to Cassidy for helping pull this whole shoot together.  She is new to the whole concept but was a huge help.   Also, a big thank you to Shelby(AShelbyCobraGirl) for putting us in touch with Fred.  Keep an eye out for an article featuring Shelby coming soon! Also, thanks to Paul for letting Cassidy climb all over your car and of course a huge thanks to Fred Jennings photography! Fred, we look forward to working with you again soon!
