over a hundred years, cars have fascinated us.
From time to time, a artisan and elitist enterprise, this medium,
and it is one, has imposed itself as the world biggest industry,
has it often happens, the democratization for what became a way
of transport brings it's load of detractors and also the questions
relative to the use of a perfectible tool in masses.
Within the last twenty years we have seen
the planets ecological consciousness worry of that phenomenon that
increases non stop, in almost uncontrollable proportions... Then
came the industrialized country's measures that were meant to eliminate
the race for power and speed, supposedly for security reason, pollution
and other gluttony.
To be honest with you, it came to late but
I do agree with it, of course it didn't stop the industrialized
country's to covet with these potential markets and sale them there
products. Think of china for a instant, knowing very well that to
be able to sale cars at a affordable price, there will no question
for catalysts or other technical sophistication... So?
Without any doubt today's cars are much better
than ever: Via the Saint-Marketing, the technology and industrialization
incited the cars-makers to built reliable, economic and well constructed
cars... All of that for millions of copies. This exactly where it
hurts to such a dosage how wouldn't get discourage ? Think of many
Claudia Shiffer... Few thousand maybe ?
The " edge design " and what not, they can
only end up along the sidewalk with the other luxurious and fashionable
one's that will only attract the eye's of the pedestrian true it's
brief youth. Let us take a look at the exotic expensive one's meaning
the rare one's (!) in our streets to understand to which point the
modern Homo Sapiens is still astonished in front of them.
In the same fashion, the vintage automobiles,
sometimes not so vintage, attracts crowds. Moreover, astonish the
after war "popular" one's are more praised that of the "Bourgeois's"
luxurious one's. For this edifying matter, Volkswagen Beetle company
has reedited a modern version, just like the Mini ( always and still
in production and sold for an astronomical price, considering the
competition ). How not to be surprise to see the 55-56-57 Chevrolet
amateurs just turning away from the sumptuous Imperial of the 50's
and 60's. As for as the prestigious sports cars are concern, how
one should react looking at the astronomical prices that some Ferrari's
have reached. Meanwhile Maserati is indifferent for it's qualities
have nothing to envy.
We are inviting you to a non pretentious
ride around some cars that we owned, own or knew, without any discrimination
what so ever for those how do not appear on this site... ( there
are many ! ).
A NICE TRIP!!!
