  1. Went to the Players Show, North Weald and was pretty much taken aback with the caliber of cars on show - it also didn't help that the previous day I helped shoot a wedding. I was however determined to some kind of footage and so chose Vern Van de Weyer’s 1975 W115 Mercedes Benz, which I first saw on the Speedhunters website. I thought that I hadn't seen any video footage dedicated to the car, so I shot it.

    Hopefully do more of these mini shoots.

  4. Eigentlich wollte sich Frank B. Meyer Anfang des neuen Jahrtausends seinen Oldtimer-Traum mit einem alten Mercedes erfüllen. Auf dem Wunschzettel stand eine S-Klasse mit großem Sechs- oder Achtzylindermotor. Gekauft hat er sich schließlich einen Citroën DS 20 Pallas aus dem Jahr 1973. Von der S-Klasse zur Göttin – diese Geschichte erzählt er in diesem Film.

  5. Die Citroën DS, oder auch die Göttin ist ein zauberhaftes Auto. Es beflügelte die Fantasie der Menschen schon 1955, dem Jahr als die DS in Serie ging. Das gilt gleichermaßen für die Gegenwart, wie die Zukunft. Nur wenige Fahrzeuge transportieren ihre Botschaft über so viele Jahrzehnte. John DeLorean hat für seinen DMC-12 die Unterstützung von Robert Zemeckis und Hollywood gebraucht, um einen ähnlichen Kultstatus zu erlangen. Die DS hat es ganz alleine geschafft.

    The Citroën DS, or the goddess is a magnificent car. It inspired the imagination of the people already in 1955. This also applies to the present, as the future. Only a few vehicles carry their message over as many decades. John DeLorean has the support of Robert Zemeckis and Hollywood needed for its DMC-12 in order to obtain a similar cult status. The DS has done it all alone.

Life is too short for ugly cars.

Safe. You can choose your means of getting around by price-performance ratio, trunk capacity or color. Or by breakdown statistics. Of even by fuel efficiency. Now that's really safe. And rational. But you can also let your heart and the gasoline in your blood carry you away. That's passion.

Chromjuwelen.com (Chrome Jewels) sets off with the passion that steers you off the safe path into the irrational lane. The community that meets and exchanges info every day on the internet portal has it's high-octane outing behind it. And often makes everything associated with it—choice of music, clothing and colorful skin—part of their lifestyle. With all the consequences. And a lot of self-confidence.
