Beautiful, and All Too Brief
Online newsletters are basically the same words and images as print media. The words, whether printed on the screen or on the page, are pretty much the same. Images, no matter how dramatically framed, cannot compare to the “pop” they deliver when back-lit by a screen. This week’s images are by Michael Furman, undisputed master of automotive studio photography. Enjoy!
Amelia! Amelia! Wherefore art Thou!
It is early Friday morning as you read this and we are beginning our first day of events at the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance. Since it is somewhat earlier in the week as I write this, I am trusting that the weather is warm and all is dry. The forecast was not positively negative. Either way, look for our detailed reports next week.
The Collier family name has been synonymous with motorsports for decades. Until now, access to the Naples Florida based Collier Collection archives and their historically important cars has been denied to all but serious collectors, restorers, scholars, and historians. We have recently learned from several sources that, in a partnership with Stanford University’s Revs Institute, the museum will soon be open to the public. This is exciting news and we will happily pass on details as they are confirmed.
Gold Medal Ads
The Winter Olympics have nothing whatsoever to do with cars. Then again… without car ad revenue there wouldn’t be television coverage. We did a quick Picks & Pans on the auto ads. We look for your thoughts.
Have a great weekend wherever you may be and if it is on the 18th fairway at Amelia on Sunday, say “Hi.” (I’m the one in the burgundy MMR logo cap.)
