Hello, very good video, thanks! Could you let me know which font you have used for the written title “Sweets on Wheels” in the video? Thanks and kind regards, Frank

This is how it should be done – one of the best films on this site. Mr. Holland could talk me though any car presentation with his enthusiasm.
I also spottet the LPG cap – but I don’t mind.

Lovely one. I also found the drone shot well timed and composed. Enjoyed Holland on camera and found myself wondering about who he was beyond the car, which is the point. Wish for a little bit of fill on his face in front of the windows but enjoyed the composition in the house. Books, windows etc. Great film.

the presentation of the Range Rover merely provides the cinematographic setting of the profoundest declaration of classic car love I ever got the pleasure of listen to. In this clip John Holland more so is the protagonist than the automobile. Very likable enthusiast… great all weather classic.

Wow, I hadn’t sat and watched any videos in some time. This was a good one. Nice touch, nice commentary. No bull.

Thanks for sharing.

That guy, Holland, he is like a movie star. He is so good.
What a beautiful car and color. What nice film work.

Wow. Great film, great subject and John Holland is a great car guy. Everything he said about owning a vintage car is absolutely on point. Balancing reliability and maintenance against the pleasure of ownership and driving, the way their shape, sexiness, form and noise affect you and last, “you can’t get that from a modern motorcar”, is so true. I feel that way about my Alfa spider…..and now I want an old Range Rover. Bravo!

Once again I see you stretching the boundaries of your craft.
I see the opening shots with just natural sound and a 1970’s cinematic homage in look and feel. The shallow depth of field in the atmospheric shots are a particularly nice change from the wide sweeping vistas. Then the best use of a drone I’ve seen in quite a while, if not ever, as it flies low across the yard behind the Range Rover. I also like the wide and tall framing for the interview segments.
This is one of the best; excellent work!

Great car, nice guy, perfect film and editing. There’s just one thing bothering me… In one of the shots I notice an LPG filler cap… WHY? Or am I mistaking? The guy doesn’t look like he can’t afford petrol and he is telling in the film that the car is totally original. What’s your opinion on this subject?

One of the best films ever!

What a character – he really echoes what we all feel about our classic cars!

Thumbs up!

Boy howdy, y’all nailed this one. Easily among your very best.

John Holland is such a passionate advocate for soulful vehicles, he makes you want to get out and drive…….I’m heading for the garage and my Mustang now…….see ya!

The first 2 door RR I ever saw up close was my friends dads, in Ankara, Turkey.
What an elegant beauty. It made a real impression.
This film was exceptional.- both from a production point of view, as well as the subject doing a great job articulating his love of his RR, and our collective love for classic cars,… and such a pretty area of the British countryside.. so textbook and so lovely…..well done.. Thx- Kurt
