Gary’s Automotive recently had the privilege of attending the 3rd annual Ottawa Autorama. The Ottawa Autorama is a showcase of classic restored and custom vehicles both old and new. The cars themselves are quite interesting, with models ranging from moonshiners to Bond cars, monster trucks to street racers, and everything in between. If you’re a fan of classic or custom cars, then the Ottawa Autorama can’t be missed!
The Classic Cars
One of the main draws at the Ottawa Autorama is the incredible lineup of classic cars. The vintage muscle cars, trucks, and other vehicles have all be carefully maintained and resorted to look like they just rolled off the factory floor. Modern Chargers and Camaros try, but they just can’t beat a classic.
The folks at Gary’s Automotive will keep your car working much better than salvaged cars of a dystopian wasteland. That doesn’t mean these cars aren’t interesting. Here we take a look at a classic car chase movie series. With a new installment due out next year, it’s not too late to customize your car (we do recommend leaving off any flame throwers or large spikes however). The Mad Max series spiced up the car chase genre and changed the face of it forever. Of course, the film featured some incredibly modified movie cars.
1979 was a big year for motion picture releases. Christopher Reeve first donned the red tights in Superman, Ridley Scott gave us a new fear in Alien, and the first Star Trek film was released. Perhaps most notably, Apocalypse Now hit theatres starring a legendary cast and is still a top contender for “best film of all time”. In the midst of all these masterpieces, a cult classic power house was quietly released not from Hollywood, but from Australia.
