Textile workers

Despite the fact that it's Saturday, I'm blown up at seven in the morning. I push the eight-year-old boy, pick up the sleepy one in my arms, and here we are looking at the phones, swinging in the subway car. We think we are going to a holiday. We are waiting for "the brightest automotive event of the fall". The roar of engines, the smell of smoke from burnt tires, high ...

Manoir de L'Automobile. Loheac. vol 4. Rally and cross.

Watching car competitions is great: excitement, adrenaline, the roar of engines, tactics and strategy, spectacular runs and the tension on the track. It's no less great to see the rally monsters that once flashed on TV screens at arm's length. Current rallycross ...

Visit. "Buckets Empire"

Visit. "Buckets Empire"

Running a little ahead, I would like to note that I have never been a fan of Japanese cars, and even more so I do not understand the nuances and details of each car. The family's attempts to instill in me a love for the divine and reliable Toyota were unsuccessful, the Germans prevailed. And all the knowledge about the Japanese ...

Auto dealerships and motor shows: will they survive in the new reality?

Auto dealerships and motor shows: will they survive in the new reality?

Looked into Italclassic: Alfa-Romeo and all all all

Greetings to old readers of my old logbook and new readers of the new blog :) I thought that many of you have already grown up (and someone may even have grown old), and decided - and not whether I should uncork this bottle of my blog. To begin with, I propose to move to sunny Spain, where on the sidelines about ...

Highlights from the San Francisco Auto Show 2019

Highlights from the San Francisco Auto Show 2019

It rains outside and disgusting. So you need to go to some event under the roof. SF Auto Show is not a Geneva or Detroit auto show. This is a local event, more like a huge showroom, and designed for mere mortals - potential buyers. The first one is at the entrance ...

Larz Anderson Auto Museum - the oldest auto collection in the United States

Larz Anderson Auto Museum - the oldest auto collection in the United States

The absence in the United States of a traditional European hereditary aristocracy with its families and titles in real life is more than compensated for by the stories of local dynasties of the bourgeoisie. Not everyone is as rich and famous as the Rothschilds or Trumps, but America is truly a "land of opportunities" both now and a hundred, and two ...

The rise of the Japanese car industry after WWII

The rise of the Japanese car industry after WWII

Good weekend everyone! It is interesting that the writing of all the previous articles pushed me to become interested in another question: how were things with the auto industry mainly in closed Asian states? For, basically, in museums there are various European and American cars, whose age is already p ...

How much can you spend in a car museum that is not a museum

How much can you spend in a car museum that is not a museum

On a rainy October day, I wondered if Cologne had automobile museums. My extremely modest knowledge of the German language was enough to find a certain place in the search called MotorWorld, and the search network algorithms were skillful enough to supply me with a huge amount of ka ...

Rusty generators of imagination. Museum "Autokombinat"

Rusty generators of imagination. Museum "Autokombinat"

It's hard to say which is more pleasant - an icy shower of rain (hot water was turned off again in the heavenly homeowners' association) or the squelching of boots on sodden slippery clay, which will then stain the interior of the "Arcana". Perhaps, it is worth choosing a piercing wind, against which even a copter is not able to fly - it is strained to buzz ...

Exhibition that no one noticed: "Festival of hunting, fishing, tourism"

Exhibition that no one noticed: "Festival of hunting, fishing, tourism"

The festival of hunting, fishing, tourism has failed. This is not sarcasm over a corpse. It is a regret that many good beginnings in our country, with our management and goals, fail. How many were there ?! Some even have no memories left and this “festival” will be one of them ... The principle “how are you ...

JDM meet. What we call "hang out" on Fridays.

JDM meet. What we call "hang out" on Fridays.

Well, I don't know exactly what we call it now, but I know for sure that before the weekend, it would seem, ordinary people (not all) turn into party-goers. Some hang out in bars, others go home, but there are those who meet friends in iconic places. Smotra, Ring at the Third Worker, as at the ZhBK. To ...

BMW Museum Tour Part 1

BMW Museum Tour Part 1

Friends, today the program includes a story about a visit to the luxurious BMW Museum, which is located at the headquarters of the concern in Munich.

Doomed to immortality

Doomed to immortality

Autumn is a time to be sad, and a visit to Chernousovo, as to one of the most existential places in Russia, is the best choice to get depressed. Silent walks among the rows of cars alone is a meditative activity, but it brings a kind of pleasure. Last weekend, a warm friendly ...

Museum "Motors of October", second hall, Moscow, July 2019

Museum "Motors of October", second hall, Moscow, July 2019

Not so long ago I talked in my blog about the Museum "Motors of October", which opened this spring in the capital. Some in the comments to my, and to other articles about this museum, scolded Dmitry Oktyabrsky for being too pretentious, that there are only Cadillacs, and budget cars have run out of things once or twice. And father ...

About a little girl and big cars.

About a little girl and big cars.

It happens: there are a lot of things to do, there is a mess at work, you come in the night, you leave the house with the first roosters, the child does not see you for a week, because when you are at home, he is either already asleep or still sleeping. And you understand that until the roof finally goes off, you need to be distracted by something. For something pleasant and p ...

Restomods against drainage

Restomods against drainage

Hello! In the last post about radical street rods, opinions were rather harshly divided into "cool, just like toys" and "danunafig, it's impossible to ride this." I fully agree with them, since such projects still require extraordinary skill in working with iron, as well as an engineer ...

Exceptionally non-exclusive: the world's most popular car festival

Exceptionally non-exclusive: the world's most popular car festival

A car is, in principle, not cheap, but a classic car even more so. Therefore, for the vast majority, classic cars fall into the category of sweet, but unrealizable dreams. After all, when you watch Pebble Beach, Amelia Island, Goodwood or Villa D'Este bathing in luxury, you feel ambivalent ...
