  1. I first spotted this beauty at last year's Players Classic basking in the sunlight. This year we were at the same show and spotted it under cover in the paddock, lucky really as it was raining earlier in the morning. Being a Caddy it meant that it had quite a bit of extra space in the rear - this is where you can find the customised low rider bicycle. It's clean and simple lines are complimented by the beautiful black paint work - then you make your way under the bonnet and into the engine bay and that's where some real gems are.

    I bumped into Carl the owner as I was milling around the Caddy taking shots and started chatting to him, I mentioned that I saw it last year but only took one shot of it and promised myself that if I saw it again I'd shoot it! I thought this would be a great opportunity to try out the interview/documentary style. So we agreed to meet up later during the day to finish off with a few questions and answers. The Caddy was the first of the four cars that I shot at Players Classic and as the day rolled on I wondered if I'd have the chance to do a quick interview - turns out that Carl managed to win a Players Award and was one of the last cars around at the show so we hurried across and grabbed some great footage.

    Definitely one of my favourites of the show - I present to you 'Double Trouble' Carl's 1988 Volkswagen Mk1 Caddy.

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.

    After a life changing motorcycle accident Steve was paralyzed from the waist down. His love of cars and more importantly Porsche's put him back in the drivers seat. Using hand controls, he is driven by a passion to once again become whole. A big part of the journey has been learning to drive again. His love of Porsche's is only eclipsed by his determination to not be limited by his handicap.
