With the eyes of the operator - point of view photographs have been the only ones I got a direct reaction via e-mail during the last year. Some of them even reappear on other site and social media (most of the time without a source) - so evendently there is a need, but I'm wondering if it can substitute anything. Most of the cars are prettier from the outside, flowing forms, chrome, shining colour and you don't get the feel, smell, sound of an old car - only more time to read the dials.
A few weeks ago I wrote about a short video, friends of mine made (see here for the old blog post), starring my Triumph. It was their first classic car video, a lot of fun and jet much for all to learn. Not only behind the camera while shooting, there is as much to do with music, selection of scenes and uploading. As it is a learning process, there is now the 2.0 Version out. Sadly the old Video, which had almost 1.600 view in 4 weeks, is gone, but a faster forward going video, more different...
In the first blog entry after my summer break I told you, that it wasn't a lazy summer without any car or gardening output and that there will be more (moving) pictures than before - now, there is the first time I can show you first results. It was the first video for me, but I was only the driver, since I couldn't have done it half as good. But for all of us it was the first classic car video and I hope it won't be the last. If so, you will be able to see them here - hopefully soon.
The Brno Revival, a classic car event with a AUTO JUMBLE, an exhibition inside the halls and a closed track creating the opportunity to see sports, touring and formula cars driving between the pavilions, took place last weekend.
Buying a 1969 Rolls-Royce Silver-Shadow on ebay for 4.000 GBP - it 's possible - driving it around, renting it for a wedding, where it will most of the time be a photo background- why not - but a full on adventure starts, when you decide to drive it 5.000 miles to the arctic cycle. If this climate zone doesn't suit you, there are other trips, for example: Ferrari in the dessert.
Not only the Tulln Classic Car show, a numerous of other events and a main event at the cote Azur - prior to Vettel an Hamilton racing at the harbor, it was time for the Monaco Historic pre-war Grand Prix
