This was shot back in 2015 and I never got around to editing this footage together. I thought to start how I'm going on and get at least one video a week completed.
I first saw this Cadillac at Players Show Classic in 2015, at that show I only shot two cars, Robin's Rover 75 vimeo.com/130686610 and this classic beast. I spent the go part of an hour around this piece of Americana and was taken back by it's sheer size and presence - I loved the lines and patina as well as it's sofa like interior. Little did I know that Jamie had been watching me for the last 15mins - as we started talking I asked him why he wanted this particular car - "I've always wanted one of these since I saw Dr Dre bouncing up and down in the videos!" - Jamie had a dream and went for it.
Walking through the paddock at this year's Players Show at Goodwood and we couldn't help but notice Robin's Rover 75 estate, especially with the Twinings livery. We thought it stood out so much that we shot it and added a bit of The Clash. Enjoy this short feature.
Once again I was invited to shoot for the awesome brand Rothfink.com. This video was shot at Volksworld 2015 and this time features Pipey's insane Mk1 Volkswagen Golf powered by a Mazda 13B rotary engine all on top of a VW Beetle pan.
This was first spotted at last year's RetroRides gathering and ever since then we've itching to get the lens on it and put together a round up of all the little nuances that make this car stand out. First of all you spot how incredibly low it is, this is thanks to the Rayvern hydraulic suspension that Pipey plumbed in. Once your eye is caught you end up circling the car for ages smiling at the little things that make this a big beast.
Shot exclusively for Rothfink.com at last year's Volksworld 2014.
Filmed on a slightly overcast day with splashes of sun here and there. Volksworld was a great show with a great range of VW's on show, luckily I was on hand with the Rothfink guys to shoot their show cars at the event at Sandown Park. You may notice a familiar car, Lewis' old 1963 Ragtop Beetle - Miss D, the car since the video has changed owners but is still within the Rothfink family. Also on show was Jason's Hightop Splitty which we will hopefully be doing a feature in the near future.
We first spotted James' 1969 Mercedes W114 at Players Classic at Goodwood, slowly rolling in as the heaven's decided to open up and give us a light drizzle. I said that we'd go back and shoot it but never got the chance. As luck would have it the next sighting of James' Mercedes was at the later Players Show at North Weald - there it had a prime spot in the corner of the hanger. We managed to spend a good hour looking over and taking video footage of this air bagged sled.
It's great to see that these old Merc's are starting to crop up on the show scene now and it's also great to see James stepping away from the norm and playing with a car that is actually older than him. Hopefully this is a start of new wave of younger enthusiasts looking back in history and looking for characterful cars - to modify and make their own. The interior of this one looks like nice comfy armchair, shag carpeted, suitcase with speakers, airbag gauges in the glovebox and I especially love the original handbrake on the right of the steering wheel. The exterior has been kept simple with respray, sitting on it's original wheels and an awesome airbagged drop.
This video went through a few songs before settling on a the chosen track. This time it's the turn of the Isley Brothers with That Lady.
