  6. A 40-foot sinkhole opened up under the National Corvette Museum in Kentucky on Wednesday and swallowed eight collector cars, including the historic one millionth Corvette built in 1992. No injuries were reported, but a 1993 ZR-1 Spyder and a 2009 ZR1 “Blue Devil” on loan from General Motors Co were among the iconic cars piled up in the gaping pit. It seems almost Biblical in a way, to have the ground open up and swallow the cream of the collection of the museum, what are the odds? Alarms went off early Wednesday morning in the “Skydome” area and museum security officers who rushed to the scene discovered the sinkhole, 25 to 30 feet (7.6 to 9m) deep. The Bowling Green Fire Department estimated its width at 40 feet (12m). Security camera footage posted on the museum’s web site shows two cars falling in as the hole opens up. Museum spokeswoman Laura Johnson said other cars near the sinkhole have been safely removed, and the museum was now trying to find a way to pull up the damaged Corvettes. Evidently, 'what to do next' includes moving other cars in their collection that might be at risk due to the sinkhole. Because the museum operates so many webcams, it's been possible to follow the action unfolding live. Teams of people have been pushing Corvette display cars of all years and descriptions through the museum's carpeted halls, but it isn't immediately clear where these cars are going. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0im-l411P1M http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W5FG9_mGWPo http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gbQF8_ZcwQk http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k05VvKHsWaw http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IukDWhf7U9I
  7. Volkswagen Kombi's epic journey reaches end after 63 years... but buyers can snap up limited final edition of iconic van for £26,000 Brazil is the last country still producing the iconic vehicle after it was introduced in Germany 63 years ago It will cease production due to new safety rules mandating every vehicle must have air bags and anti-lock braking For 63 years, it has carried families of hippies, hauled surfers in search of killer waves and served as a workhorse across many developing countries. But now, the Volkswagen Kombi's epic journey has finally reached the end of the road. The iconic vehicle has succumbed to environmental legislation - meaning it will no longer be produced in Brazil, or anywhere else in the world. Iconic: The Volkswagen Kombi's epic journey has finally reached the end of the road after 63 years of production. Above, a multi-coloured fleet of the beloved vehicles Farewell gesture: The Kombi has succumbed to environmental legislation. However, Volkswagen is now offering a limited final version (pictured) to buyers and collectors Final edition: About 1,200 'last edition' models are expected to be produced by the German manufacturer - each priced at an estimated $43,000 (£26,000) Brazil is the only country still producing the beloved model, which was introduced in Germany in 1950. However, it will cease production on December 20 due to new safety regulations coming into force next year - mandating that every vehicle in the country must have air bags and anti-lock braking. Factory: Workers produce limited final editions of the Kombi in Volkwagen Brazil's factory in Sao Bernardo do Campo today Production: Brazil is the only country still producing the beloved Kombi, which was introduced in Germany in 1950 End of an era: However, the country will cease production on December 20 due to new safety regulations coming into force next year - mandating that every vehicle in the country must have air bags and anti-lock braking. Above, workers test various elements of the final edition Kombi People across the world are mourning the end of the Kombi - with some van lovers holding an exhibition in Sao Bernado do Campo, Brazil, yesterday to honour their beloved minubuses. In total, more than 10million of the iconic vehicles have been produced throughout the world - with 1.5million having been made in Brazil since 1957. The vans were called the Type 2, because they were the second type to be offered by car maker Volkswagen - the first being the Beetle. Over the years, they have been dubbed a variety of things, including the minivan, microvan, hippie van, campervan and the 'bus'. Hippie hooray: For 63 years, the iconic vehicle it has carried hippies, hauled surfers in search of killer waves and served as a workhorse in many developing countries Popular: In total, more than 10million Kombis have been produced throughout the world - with 1.5million having been made in Brazil since 1957 Out with a bang: People across the world are mourning the end of the Kombi - with some van lovers holding an exhibition in Sao Bernado do Campo, Brazil, yesterday to honour their beloved minubuses In Britain and the US during the 60s and 70s, partly because it was cheap, the Type 2 became linked with youth culture - with its advertising slogan 'not just a vehicle ... more a way of life'. Fans of the machine said its mechanical failures only reinforced its charm and, because its engine was so simple, it was easy to fix, imparting a deeper sense of ownership. It became popular that British enthusiasts still gather every year for the annual Volkswagen Festival near Leeds. Celebrity fans of the iconic vehicle include actor Martin Clunes, who owns two campers – a rare black one with a bay windscreen, and a navy and white split-screen model dating from 1977. Hippier times: The show was held in Sao Bernardo do Campo, Brazil, tocelebrate the last of the iconic Volkswagen Kombi minibuses to come off the assembly line Early model: The vans were called the Type 2, because they were the second type to be offered by car maker Volkswagen, the first being the Beetle Still young: In Britain and the US during the 60s and 70s, partly because it was cheap, the Type 2 became linked with youth culture Nicknames: Over the years, the Kombi has been dubbed a variety of things, including the minivan, microvan, hippie van, campervan and 'bus' Die hards: Die-hard British enthusiasts still gather every year for the annual VW Festival near Leeds ‘There’s something so self-contained about a camper,' he said. 'Driving one is like putting on a comfortable pair of old slippers.' Formula 1 racing driver Jenson Button has also owned two – a red and white model from 1956 and a gold-coloured 1970 Volkswagen Kombi. Jamie Oliver was less impressed. In 2005, he drove around Europe in a 1959 Samba version of the machine for the Channel 4 television series Jamie’s Great Escape. 'To be honest, it was a complete pain,' he said. 'It was towing a heavy trailer, so perhaps it’s not surprising that it broke down several times.’ Beyond useful: In poorer regions like Latin American and Africa, the vehicle has continued to be made long after production ended in the UK in 1967 Multi-purpose: In Brazil, the Kombi is used by the postal service to haul mail, by the army to transport soldiers, and by funeral directors to carry corpses Lunch van: Brazilians also convert their vans into rolling food carts, setting up on street corners for working-class lunchtime crowds Unsafe: Production in Germany was halted in 1979 because the van no longer met European safety requirements In poorer regions like Latin American and Africa, the vehicle has continued to be made long after production ended in the UK in 1967. In Brazil its uses are perhaps not as romantic– it is used by the postal service to haul mail, by the army to transport soldiers, and by funeral directors to carry corpses. Brazilians also convert their vans into rolling food carts, setting up on street corners for working-class lunchtime crowds. Famous fans: Celebrity fans of the iconic vehicle include actor Martin Clunes, Formula 1 racing driver Jenson Button and chef Jamie Oliver Numerous attempts: Volkswagen unveiled a new version of the camper van at the 2011 Geneva Motor show, but it never went into production Sink and mirrors: A man takes a photograph of the inside of a van Volkswagen Kombi minibus fitted with sink and mirror Fans' favourite: Collector Marcos da Silva carries a miniature Volkswagen Kombi Production in Germany was halted in 1979 because the Kombi no longer met European safety requirements. Volkswagen unveiled a new version of the camper van at the 2011 Geneva Motor show, but it never went into production. Damon Ristau, director of the documentary film ‘The Bus’ about van fanatics, said: ‘The van represents freedom. It has a magic and charm lacking in other vehicles. It’s about the open road, about bringing smiles to peoples’ faces when they see an old VW van rolling along.' Lap of luxury: A boy plays with a tablet inside a Kombi which has been fitted with leather seats and a widescreen television Taking a break: Visitors rest at yesterday's exhibition which showcased hundreds of the iconic minibuses Long heritage: The first ever Volkswagen campervans were made in 1950 Read more: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2520659/VW-Kombis-epic-journey-reaches-end-63-years.html#ixzz2nDssL6LA Follow us: @MailOnline on Twitter | DailyMail on Facebook
  8. What would you do if you lost your most prized possession? This man, Robert Russell, went looking for his stolen sports car on eBay for 42 years! Robert Russell never gave up searching for the 1967 Austin-Healey, which was stolen from his home in Philadelphia in 1970. Russell recently spotted what he thought was his car on eBay. He checked the vehicle identification number on the website against the one on the car's title certificate and found they matched. Russell, who now lives in Texas, then contacted the police in May who then tracked down the car in East Los Angeles. "Detective Ortega located the stolen Austin-Healey at the dealership listed in the eBay ad and confirmed that the car was the same vehicle reported stolen by Mr. Russell," the department said. After working with Philadelphia police to resolve vehicle identification issues, the department told Russell he could pick up his car. He has since brought it back to Texas. Russell told deputies that he bought the vehicle for US$3,000 (S$3,746). It's now valued at US$23,000 (S$28,724). Robert Russell said he continued his search for the vehicle, not for its monetary value, but because it had sentimental value to both him and his wife.
  9. beautiful song, and nice nostalgic advert think this was made in 1970s can see in the advert, the Singapore River was still filled with bumboats, the streets got the mobile hawker stalls, etc nice [:)]
  10. Fans of vintage racing cars would be familiar with racing cars such as the Porsche 917, Ford GT40 and the Lola T70. And most fans of these racing cars could only dream of driving them as the real thing could cost you a lot of money. But now you can stop dreaming and obtain one of these racing cars at a fraction of the price of a real one. South African firm, Bailey Cars, builds replicas of classic racing cars and they have set up shop in North America so fans can fulfil their dreams of owning such racers. Prices ranging from US$83,000 for a Lola T70 to US$103,300 for a Ferrari P4, excluding shipping. You could say that the prices are not that really cheap but considering that they are still much cheaper than buying the real thing and they are built using modern engineering techniques. Each car is built on a modern tube frame chassis. Engine and transmission is based on a customer

    Steve McQueen

    Legendary Hollywood actor, Steve McQueen is a man who is genuinely passionate about cars and obviously he loves fast cars. Most would know or remember the Ford Mustang that he drove in the movie Bullitt and it is one of the best car chase scene ever in movie history. Even though the Mustang was a brilliant piece of machine, McQueen prefers something a little different. The car that you see here is a Ferrari 275 GTB4 and it was once owned by Steve McQueen himself. It was said that McQueen took delivery of the car in San Francisco while filming the movie Bullitt. The current owner of the Ferrari 275 GTB4 has brought the car to Ferrari Classiche to have it restored to its original state in order to receive an authenticity certification. Ferrari Classiche is based at Maranello and they authenticate and certify classic Ferraris as original which would be a huge advantage to owners when they want to sell their cars. But for their cars to be certified as a Ferrari original, the car must be in the original condition (same specifications as when it left the factory) and with matching numbers and not subject to any modification. When the car arrived at Ferrari Classiche, there was one problem. One of the previous owners has converted the coupe to a convertible during the 1980s. This was done probably because the owner at that time wanted a 275 GTB4 NART which is the Spyder (or convertible) version of the 275 GTB4. He probably could not find or afford one as only 10 units of the Spyder variant were ever made by Sergio Scaglietti and Enzo Ferrari. Since Ferrari Classiche could not authenticate and certify a fake 275 GTB4 Spyder, the current owner had to allow them to turn his pretend Spyder back to an original coupe by reproducing the roof and other parts of the car with hand beaten steel panels. And this will restore the car back to its original condition and granting it Ferrari Classiche status. Classic Ferraris are becoming excellent long term investments. Recently, a Ferrari 250 GTO which was built for Stirling Moss sold for US$35 million in a private sale. The 275 GTB4 might not fetch a huge price but at least the owner made a good decision to restore it back to the original state. Plus, with the car

    Vintage Mercedes car seized by German police

    When Dutch car collector, Frans van Haren, won an auction for a vintage 1937 Mercedes car, it was just like a dream come true. But it turned into a nightmare when it got confiscated by the local authorities in Germany where he brought it to have the car displayed at the recent Techno Classica Car Show in Essen, Germany. The car you see here is a rare (and obviously, precious) 1937 Mercedes 500 K Roadster (type W29); where only 392 were made in total including 29 units that were roadsters. Frans van Haren acquired the car in an auction last year in August. He paid an enormous amount of US$ 3.767 million dollars for it and decided to bring it to the above mentioned auto show. At the auto show, German police confiscated the car as a result of a claim by a custodian acting for the family of the car

    The revival of the Atalanta Sports Tourer

    Back in December last year, I wrote about the resurgence of several British sports car manufacturers and one of them is Atalanta Motors. Details were little back then but a recent launch of the new car provided more details about the revival. The event was held at the Royal Automobile Club on 05 March 2012, exactly 75 years when the original Atalanta Sports Tourer was introduced in 1937 by its founder Neil Watson. This revival project is a joint venture between restorer Trevor Farrington and motoring enthusiast Martyn Corfield, who purchased the Atalanta name. Both Corfield and Farrington designed a new Atalanta Sports Tourer that combines modern engineering and the classic lines of the original car. At the launch, Corfield spoke about the history of the marque and highlighted some of the innovative technologies which the original Atalanta models featured. The revived company uses modern technology to enhance performance and safety, while the 1930s English sports car styling is retained including the tall and narrow tyres so as to give a good driver
