Can you please tell me the name of that song?

This is simply beautiful! Just as gorgeous as the car is the landscape it was driving through! Oo that note, what is the area in SoCal shown that has those tree-lined roads and rolling meadows? I must know so I can go for a drive through there next time I’m in LA 🙂 If you, the wonderful staff at Petrolicious, could let me know I’d so appreciate it. Keep up these amazing automotive vignettes!

Simply stunning! A fitting complement to the beauty that once owned it.

Is it me or does the guy in the video remind anyone of Jeff Goldblum?

It’s always great listening to Leslie and those of us here in LA have the good fortune to enjoy his seminars at the Petersen. Agree that this video is a exceptional piece but if you can imagine, this car is even more beautiful in person.

While the same could be said every week, the video this week was truly a work of art. I wonder exactly who it might be that actually creates the videos every week for us to enjoy? Could it be Kika? Afshin’s (wife?). If so Kika you are a talented person with a wonderful eye for beauty! If not? Who is the artist in the shadows of the world of Petrolicious?
As always, a brilliant piece this week! Thank you!!

Jim,
Thanks so much for the flattery. The praise should all go to our team of talented filmmakers from around the world. We’re lucky to work with so many wonderful creative people.
Cheers.

Such beauty. It is a shame those ideas in automotive design have been lost.

…… and yet another very fine example of what Cadillac could of been had GM seen the sense of establishing partnerships such as that which created this gem … rather than the badge engineered EuroSnob wanna be’s that Cadillac has become of late …

What a beauty this cars is . Yet in light of what Cadillac has become ? What a tragic reminder of what could of been it is
