Matchbox Sculptures

karin-humberg-matchbox-1
While on a cycling tour through the eastern part of Holland, we suddenly saw a small exposition of automotive statues. We recognized a Jaguar, a Beetle and a Mercedes 300SLR. They were made in 2008 by German sculptress Karin Humberg. She made these automobiles (called Matchbox I, II and III) from Norwegian Labrador, a rather distinctive sort of granite. A really fine job!

Pure Poetry

citroen-ami-factory
Like skeletons waiting what the future will bring. That’s what we thought when we saw this 1960’s poetic picture of Citroën’s factory in Rennes Le Jamais. Here they made the Ami6, a (then) futuristic model because of its back-slanted rear-window.

Et Dieu..

lancia-venetie
This week is the 67th Venice International Film Festival which is sponsored by Lancia. So what could be more fitting today than a picture of a Lancia in a picture. It’s the Aurelia Spider used in the legendary movie "Et dieu...Créa la Femme" that made sex-symbol Brigitte Bardot world famous. More of this movie can be seen (and ordered) at the website AureliaSpider.com. (With thanks to Dutch Film Works and Almar John Gouweloos)

Go Green

peel-green-1
Perhaps the smallest car ever produced was the Peel 50. It was made on the Isle of Man from 1962 until 1965 but wasn’t sold in great numbers. Recently it became famous again when Jeremy Clarkson of the popular TV-program Top Gear drove it  (YouTube). Maybe that revival brought on the idea by several bright young man to revive the marque and start re-manufacturing it. But it will not be the same as the 1960s model, for instance the tiny DKW 49cc fan-cooled engine will be replaced by a modern electric motor. Will today’s demand for ‘green’ cars warrant such a revival? If you ask us we think some things are best forgotten and the Peel is one of them. (photo courtesy Peel Engineering)
