…It’s Tuner Tuesday: Snaefell?

Snaefell

Motorcycle sidecars are usually just additions to a bike that allow you to bring someone else along for the ride without having them hold on to you and stare at the back of your helmet all day.

François Knorreck saw things differently however, as his right-hand chain driven Laverda 3CL inspired a sidecar that turns his ride into something that more closely resembles a car than a motorcycle.

In all, it took him 10 years, more than 10,000 hours, and $21,000 to convert the bike into what you see here (he calls it the Snaefell) but for the two passengers that get to sit in an enclosed capsule of speed, the time, energy and money were most definitely worth it.

…Tamar Levine documents Hollywood?

Tamar Levine - Michael JacksonTamar Levine takes photos of the strange and interesting people that gather in front of the Chinese Theater in Hollywood, pretending to be famous pop culture characters. (Spider-Man, Michael Jackson, Jack Sparrow, Luke Skywalker, Elvis Presley, Etc.)

Apparently, “these are full-time freelance careers for a fiercely territorial group of eccentrics who often take their celebrity alter-egos with them well after they’ve left Hollywood Blvd”.

Definitely a must see gallery.

…It’s Movie Monday: The Illusive?

The Illusive

Though I doubt the world of the automotive spy photographer is anything near as glamorous as how it’s portrayed in “The Illusive”, it sure is a neat way to debut a new ride.

The film, which features the new SLR Roadster (among other Mercedes offerings), the Apple iPhone, and a Canon camera (“ideal brand partners are brought together and acquired for each film individually”), follows a freelance photog as he attempts to get the exclusive shot, and the illusive girl.

    A closed-off racecourse in northern France. A high-class German carmaker is holding a hush-hush photo shoot for its hypercharged baby. No one outside of the company has ever seen the secret new roadster.

It’s a very entertaining film, if a bit short, and does a great job of advertising for the product without coming off as a blatant product advertisement.

If only all ads were as subtle.
