Topic: 1958 cars sought for TV work
 
Description: An interesting thread has been posted on our forum. A company called Twofour Broadcast (www.twofour.co.uk) are currently making a television series for a major television channel that revolves around the presenter driving 1958 era classic cars around the leisure routes of the British Isles, as described in motoring guide books of that period.
The series, which coincides with the 50th anniversary of the first motorway being built in the UK, will showcase some of the most beautiful parts of our country.
They are looking for cars that would have been driven in 1958 (or thereabouts) that are road worthy and could be driven by the presenter along these routes, which range from about 10 to 50 miles.
They are looking for six cars and will need each car for about five days filming in the early summer of 2008 (dates and locations are not yet finalised).
It's a great opportunity to showcase your car, so if you'd like to know more, please email the producer, Jonny Steven at jonneysteven@twofour.co.uk

Topic: Classic Cars Banned from Cities?
 
Description: Jackal - a VIP member from the UK - has raised a forum subject of interest all of us who enjoy classic cars. Town and city councils throughout the UK are considering introducing measures to control the emissions of cars entering their city centres - or "green zones" - or alternatively where city tolls exist, like the congestion charge in London, making the charges for the highest polluting vehicles so exorbitant that owners of gas-guzzlers choose to keep well clear. This is all well and good and understood by even the most committed petrol head. The problems begin when no emissions data is available either because the car is a one off special or is too old to have emissions data logged against it - the simplest solution is, and a precedent exists, to ban them all together from the city centre. Cities already considering bans include Bristol and Edinburgh.
In Stuttgart in Germany a trial is already underway that bans cars older than 1993. Amsterdam has similar plans before its council for consideration.
This is a worrying development that may well see the usefulness of classics drastically reduced and, obviously the attractiveness of their ownership similarly hit.
To Rush fans this is the prediction of "The Red Barchetta" coming true. .
Details of a petition for UK drivers to sign are given on the Jackal's entry. Good subject - well raised.
