Description

"A race car that sits in a museum is a travesty," says Brian Blain, founder of the Blain Motorsports Foundation. Brian's obsession with pre-World War I race cars began decades ago when a family friend gifted him a trunk full of old racing memorabilia. He was already an avid motorcycle and car racer, but the contents of the trunk opened up a whole new world to him. Now, he centers his efforts on finding, preserving, restoring, and most importantly, DRIVING these amazing vintage race cars.

Comments

  • Ben Didlot Added Sitting down in a modern car and turning the key and driving away is a pretty mundane experience. Driving the old cars that require you to participate in making it run, keeping it running, and knowing how it works so you can have the sheer pleasure of the drive is an experience not many people today will ever experience. You can actually bond with a machine, and that is what this is all about.
  • Fred Grey Added Building a 1912 Hudson 33 Speed Roadster gives me a feeling like no other car ever did.
    Temptation to build a old racer never goes away.
  • Al Barany Added I have loved old cars since I was a child, now I'm 77. This was a great video.
  • Mal Added Fantastic I play with old motor bikes and old Volvo cars they stopped building good cars when all the electronic stuff started to be fitted to cars .
  • gary Added a fantastic little doco.
  • mcrook6@bigpond.com Added I am into 66 mustangs but these were also good.
  • Larry Adams Added Excellent video and narration. Thoroughly enjoyed it and learned a lot. Gives me a whole new appreciation for the cars and race scenes from Downton Abbey. Thank you.
  • Becky Added Boy, have we come a long way! And I'm glad, too. I don't think I'd WANT to drive one of those old, clattering, sputtering, vibrating jalopies. History is one thing, and it's important and interesting, but I can fully appreciate power steering, power brakes, air conditioning and heating, radio, windows... the list goes on and on. (Yes, I'm soft.) Museums, no... in the public eye, yes... but I would never volunteer to start one... or drive one.
