The 1A Blog Friday Video Wrap-Up

Tony – “Don’t forget your camper this holiday weekend!”

Jeremy – “I realize that no car video this week will live up to the video of the Seagull stealing the gopro video camera, but I do have some great ones for you! Now, if 1 Supra launching is a great time, then three Supra launches are thrice as good. AmIRite?”

Remember When You Wanted To Drift On Top of a Tall Building?

Well, you’re too late, because BMW already did it in “Part 2″ of their BMW 1M viral video marketing campaign.  I’ll be the first to say, they are two for two.  Not too shabby.  If you missed the first video, click this, and you will find it. It is a BMW 1M drifting through concrete walls. Strange, I know, but it’s quite impressive.

Like Tilt-Shift Videos? Ken Block’s Got A New One!

There is no denying that people like watching tilt shift videos.  Since people also like Ken Block, it was natural to combine the two for a Dirt 3 advertisement.  In the words of Napoleon Dynamite’s brother Kip – “I loooove Technology.”

Yank Tanks: The 50′s Cars in Cuba

A few days ago, I was too angry at my vehicles to give them any wrenching time, so I plopped myself down on the couch.  Before long, I found myself flippin’ through my Netflix account searching for car-related movies.  Among Two Lane Blacktop, Ronin, Bullit and Eric Bana’s Love The Beast, sat a movie that I had never heard of before.  It was called “Yank Tanks” by David Schendel, and it documented all of the 1940′s and 1950′s cars that are still in daily use in Cuba, along with the people that drive them.

Throughout the movie, dozens of car owners and mechanics are interviewed, along with the unique methods of repairing some of these old American rides.  As it turns out, the majority of the replacement parts for these old cars are smuggled into the country, made by amazing Cuban craftsman, or retrofitted from newer Russian cars.  From guys who build vehicles from metal scraps, to a shoeless dancing man that makes windshields, to painting cars with sponges, to one guy that makes his own brake pads with a secret formula of asbestos, you see it all.  The willingness to make any part of an old car is unlike anything that I have ever seen.  If you have a spare hour or so, I’d say it is definitely worth the watch.  The video above is the trailer for the movie, check it out!
