We had planned to photograph Bay Area model Luna Rose during her visit to the Formula Drift Finals, but didn't get a chance to meet up with her until the track was hot and the smoke was billowing... So we thought, "Screw it! Why not just shoot her here?" Thanks to Formula D staff, we made it happen and snapped some gnarly photos of her in the staging lanes. Luna was definitely a trooper as she inhaled smoke for a good hour while posing a few feet from cars burning out. Thankfully, we didn't get sued, and she enjoyed the scenery!
So tell us about an interesting hobby you have.
I'm currently getting more into cars and I'm not just saying that because this is a car magazine!
Sure... So what cars have you owned?
Mazda Miata, Corvette Z06 and I'm currently driving my Nissan GT-R. I worked super hard and long for this toy. [Long and hard? Teehee. -Ed] I would call it my quarter-life crisis!
How was it shooting at Formula D?
I loved shooting on the track next to all the drift cars. I'm just glad they didn't run me over!
So what's something you absolutely hate?
I hate, hate slow and incompetent drivers.
Any bad habits you're trying to get rid of?
Road rage... Haha!
Sounds like you're a crazy driver! So what was your worst job?
Working at the movies in high school. I smelled like popcorn after every shift!
Any girl crushes?
Jessica Alba and my super-hot partner in crime, Keiko Alingas.
What was your worst date?
I got stood up once so I guess it was never a date. Oh well...
So if we were on a date, what would I order you at the bar?
Raspberry Long Island, hold the roofy.
Favorite part of your body?
My smile! I was tortured with braces for five years.
Tell us one of your biggest achievements.
Graduating from dental hygiene school. I have always wanted to be a hygienist since middle school. It was a great feeling when I finally made it!
If you had 24 hours to live, what would you do?
I would like to spend time with my loved ones as I eat a crapload of pie and turkey legs.
