Following 5 days in Tokyo we moved on to Fujiyoshida a small town at the base of the magnificent Mt. Fuji. I'm always drawn towards mountainous areas (although technically Fuji san is a volcano) it is so perfectly formed and visible from all around south western Japan.
Caffeine & Machine – Stratford-upon-Avon, UK
Having two instagram accounts following hundreds of classic, sports and modified car related users, a name that has consistently popped up over the last few years has been 'Caffeine & Machine'. Home of cool cars, combustion and coffee.
Petrolicious – Bicester Heritage, Oxfordshire
This felt very unlike any other car show I have attended. A super-chilled and classy atmosphere with some epic cars on show in some beautifully restored surroundings. A truly immersive experience. I geeked out massively and Nadine enjoyed it too.
London Cartel International Auto Show – South of England Show Ground
Cars have always been a big part of my life since I have been old enough to drive. They have provided me with a bottomless bucket to throw any disposable income into, they have caused me stress, blood, sweat and swearwords...They have also brought me much joy and enabled me to learn a lot of home mechanics and feel accomplished that I can take on practical challenges using these skills.
London Classic Car Show
I took a day of my half term to spend with my 6 year old nephew at London's Classic Car show at the ExCell Centre in London's Docklands. He's recently found an interest in cars and seemed to have a slight obsession with modern Lamborghinis and McLarens. I was hoping to help influence him towards the beauty of old cars and classic engineering.
Nordschleife, Nürburg – Germany
The proximity of Landgraaf to Germany and specifically the town Nürburg makes it convenient for a day trip to the infamous Nurbürgring or Nordschleife racing circuit otherwise known as Grüne Hölle - "Green Hell". Anyone who knows me will know that I have an obsession with cars and a particular interest in German cars (you may notice from my photos that I have a desire for a particular brand of German automobiles) the Nürburgring was a dream destination.
