One lovely summer morning, many moons ago, I was walking to work. About 8 am in the morning. I had a class at one of the banks, downtown Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia. On the way, I was stopped dead in my tracks; as amongst the sea of grey and white 10-year-old Japanese metal boxes, I heard a low growl of a sound that echoed the old days when driving was about fun, not commuting. Then more. And suddenly, I approached Sukhbaatar Square, the large Soviet-style square in the centre of the city, complete with the outrageous monstrosity of a Chinghis Khan statue (that's another story). The square was quickly filling up with old classic cars - Aston Martins, Bentleys, Mustangs - all numbered and bursting with life and character.
As a classic car enthusiast, I was like a kid in a toy shop, My lesson that morning was probably the best lesson in the world. I was set-up for the rest of the day, or indeed week..anyway, enough talking - just watch the clip. Together with The Gravy Theme, a piece of music I recorded a while back..... Enjoy
