Last week we asked about movies, and many, including the top three, had to do with racing. And it got me thinking about who the greatest racer of all time is. Certainly some have more wins than others and everyone has their favorites whether due to on-track heroism or off-track attitude, not that those two attributes are mutually exclusive...

Exceptional, Classic British Racing

Exceptional, Classic British Racing

In late July, I was lucky enough to witness classic car racing for the first time. The Silverstone Classic is a massive gathering of classic car lovers from around the UK, and I don't think there's a better introduction to the spectacle of vintage metal anywhere else in the world.

Belstaff and Aston Martin are a Sublime Pairing

We can't imagine a more appropriate match for classic British motoring than Belstaff's signature hand-waxed leather jacket, itself derived from Belstaff's storied involvement with motorcycling, and their jeans sewn from soft Japanese denim. In fact, the same philosophy behind Aston Martin's hand-built manufacturing techniques, are behind Belstaff's approach to making timeless clothing.

It can’t exactly be said that Aston Martin was seeking a lift when it announced the DB6 at the 1965 London Motor Show. Rather, it was a relief from lift of the aerodynamic kind that figured as a raison d’être for the new car. The outgoing DB5 was a rollicking automobile, not to mention its stature as a screen star, being James Bond’s equivalent of the Lone Ranger’s Silver.

Several words come to mind when thinking of Ferraris. "Beautiful," "fast," and "amazing" are a few of them. "Gap-filler" is not on that list. However, the 330 GTC debuted as one at the 1966 Geneva Auto Show. It bridged the space between the 275 GTB Berlinetta and the 330 2+2 Coupe.

This Connie was purchased by its first owner amidst the glitz and glamor of Hollywood and over the past fifty-two years has accrued fewer than 40,000 miles. Its Castilian Gold metallic paint, which, according to the seller, is "a lovely greenish-silverish-goldish" color, is mostly original too.

The car, upon starting, has a mellow growl about it. The exhaust note is typically pronounced as you would expect from an un-catalyzed, straight-pipe-exhaust vehicle of this era. And its four-cylinder Ford 1701cc Cortina engine revs surprisingly freely, accelerating this super-light car about with a fair bit of authority.

In my final year of high school, we were required to undertake a final senior project that would be year-long and had to focus on a peronsal goal and interest. Some of my classmates chose to skydive, write poetry, learn guitar...I chose to do something I always wanted to do–restore a car.

As a jazz musician living in Denmark (with the world's highest car taxes–over 200%!), buying a dream car is currently out of Ander's reach. So instead, he decided to write music to accompany and pay homage to his favorites. Since the music is inspired by the sound of the seventies, Elektrojazz chose to focus on cars from this era...
