The Recapturing of the Aura

For many self-proclaimed car fanatics, little can irritate us more than the rare moment where our "so called" encyclopedic knowledge of everything automobiles gets trumped by somebody else. Anybody else. At least that was how it was for me.

Now, one of the many things I get out of working on FPH is the constant reminder that I, in fact, know very little about anything at all. The internet is this amazing, never ending source of obscure stories and factoids from all over the world. God bless it!

On the far opposite end of the spectrum and from the far opposite end of the world (the Outback, to be exact), Gavin King is certainly the king of his domain. With a severe case of tunnel vision for classic British sports cars, the garage of his business, Concours Sportscar Restoration, holds some of the most incredible metal sculptures the world has ever seen. Of course, if you paid attention to the name of his company, you would understand that those beautiful machines didn't look that way when they came into his shop.

Also, remember to visit Toby Morris' page on Vimeo and check out more of his work.
