I usually spend my free time exploring castles, but that's not my only interest. I also like cars, especially from the 60's & 70's, especially with a V8 and extra especially when they are in good, original condition.
This video was taken in Kurume City, Kyushu island, Japan. I first came upon this place in the new year, and it had been on my mind that I should make the trip back to shoot a video. Suffice to say I did.
So, what do you reckon folks?

*** Update ***
Me and my dad see my dad's old car for the first time in 20 years.
He sold the car over 20+ years ago when he was an alcoholic. Said he
probably would have died in it. This is the first time he saw it since he
sold it over 20+ years ago. The car does look in relative good shape, we
have no idea what has been done with the car over the past 20 years. It
obviously wasn't sitting there for 20 years and nobody claims it to be. Pay
attention, people. 1964 Buick Rivera. 425 Wildcat V8 w/ 427 horsepower.

Abandoned cars in forgotten junkyard
These pictures were taken in May of 2010 in the Michigan woods. The
junkyard is permanently closed and has posted no trespassing signs all over
the place. I spoke to the person who owns the property and was given
special permission to explore. This site covers 120 acres and is packed
with cars from the 1930's on up. I only had an hour to look and it must be
done on foot. Enjoy the pics, places like this just don't exist anymore.
Truely a rare find. Thanks to my buddy Chris for the tip on this hot spot.
Barn find 1927 Buick & 1941 Hudson- Reseda, California
In June of 2010 I was asked to help evaluate and uncover a rather unique
group of classic cars; one of which had be sitting since just after World
War 2. In fact there was an original WW2 Navy uniform still sitting in the
back seat. More rare cars came of hiding that fortuitous day. I was lucky
enough to recover and bring home a few of these time-forgotten relics.
Original Barn find 1968 GT500 Shelby
This car is completely original down to the tires! This one of a kind find
has never been washed since resurfacing from an undisclosed location in
Georgia. This Shelby is a true barn find and yes, it does start and is
driven on and off it's enclosed trailer to various car shows. The seats
have been changed back to the original ones that came in the car along with
all the SHELBY letters that are missing. The car is a rare automatic.

Vintage Racing Crash Roll cages are good
This is Mark with Zapata in second place of the last race at Roebling Road.
Listen close and you can hear his rear axle snap. At that point he can't
do anything but hold on. Mark is fine. This is a good reason to over
build safety into any racecar.
We are making a Documentary movie about vintage racing. Go to
www.vintageracingtoday.com for more info. It comes out Summer 2012.
We are following six drivers from Nashville for a year making a film about
Vintage Racing. Mark the driver in this video is one of those drivers. Go
to www.vintageracingtoday.com to see the movie trailer.
