Villa d'Este Video

Recommended Posts

One of the people I know online is wrapping up his trip to the Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Esta 2018. I found this video production from 2017. It is just too well done not to share.

Yes, that is a well done video ... thanks for posting.

 

It's always nice to see how the "Other Half" lives, especially since many of them are "gear heads" (albeit high-end ones) sorta, kinda, almost like us on this here Forum.

 

Cheers,

My Son is a video editor so the quality really caught my eye.

 

And, at 2:20, the courtesy car is very similar to what I am taking my Wife for a ride in the country with. Maybe we will ride over by the old peasant farm.

Great video. I need to show this to my wife so she can see what a Concourse is like. Last time we were in Europe there was one on nearby. I would have liked to have had a  attended but really didn't have any clothing appropriate for a high end event, my wife couldn't understand this, mind you she always looks beautiful and dresses well so she probably could have fitted straight in, myself on the other hand usually need a bit of prep work 😁. Maybe next time. One thing I have discovered is if they are real car people they will talk if you show that you are interested in there car .

I'm just a tie, a jacket, and a smile away. Stifle a minute.

Oh! We took the ride. I meant PHEASANT farm, Freudian slip.

Top shelf stuff, I could barely afford to watch the video. I had my "courtesy car" out just the other day. It shakes and rattles like the shuttle coming back to earth.

We have something like that here in Round Rock, Texas, every 3rd Saturday of the month at the local Taco Bell.

 

Except for the champagne.

Yep Taco Bell would be more my style. Just showed my wife the video and her comments were as follows. Wow where are the smiles and fun why would you do something like that if it makes you so sad😁 Also that her fathers cousin lived on lake Como unfortunately we can't stay with her cause she's dead. 

Oh well I thinks I'll be more comfortable have fun locally and if I have to push my car I won't have such a large crowd😁

The BMW Group  had the video produced. I liked that one little shot of the Bentley being pushed. BMW Group, your efforts did not go unappreciated.

The BMW's proceeded in a stately manner.

I happened to be in the neighborhood over this last weekend and was able to attend the show both days.(2018) Quite a place for a car show. I saw some jaw dropping stuff, some that I was not even familiar with. Here is a photo from the first day, the 540K Cab A was a Massachusetts car for many years and owned by family friends for something like forty years. Overall an incredible automotive adventure. I have more photos if anyone wants to see them, ask and I will post.

I knew Tom and he had quite a few cars over the years. None of his cars were at that show that I am familiar with. I know where his Nash and Pierce are, as for the others, I have no idea where they are.
