Most Expensive Crashes

I tripped over this story while cruising around the Internet and thought I would share it. Here are the most expensive car crashes.

Pitching TV Shows

Last month I was part of a very small crew shooting footage at the Model T Ford Club of America Museum for pitches of several television shows. I can't really talk about the specific shows but can say that the MTFCA Museum was the perfect backdrop for them. The museum, located in Richmond, IN, is literally stuffed with history. Featuring rare Model Ts as well as many unique and varied versions, this museum may be small but it should be on everyone's bucket list; at least everyone who fancies the Car of the 20th Century.
 Cinematographer Jim Rollo is seen here setting up the first shot.
 Yes, Jim is standing beneath a single passenger aircraft that was powered by a Model T engine.
 The predecessor of the Model T, the Model N featured a great deal of similarities in design.
 My daughter Alli makes sure that Jim stays on schedule.
 Jim getting his drone working. We did aerial shots of several Model Ts.

 Two of the Model Ts that we shot, being led by a beautiful 1914 model.

 While Jim was operating the drone I was shooting on the sidelines.
 Looking over Jim's shoulder at the beautiful footage from the drone.
After the shoot I took my turn in that 1914 Model T.

This will wrap up the week from the Clermont Sportsman's Club but there will be plenty more posts to come as we move into the cold of winter. For today's post I've included a spectacular 1949 Oldsmobile, a Chevrolet Bel Air, a Monte Carlo, a Bonneville, a 1955 Chevy Handyman, and a Z 28 Camaro.

Lots of Chevys at the Clermont Sportsman's Club Show

This year's Clermont Sportsman's Club Car Show brought out a lot of really cool old cars from Chevrolet. There was everything from an old Chevy station wagon, a couple of old Chevy trucks, a Studebaker Hawk, a Chevy II, a 1951 Chevy Coupe, a 1967 Chvey II, with a beautiful Studebaker Hawk sitting among them.

More From the Clermont Sportsman's Club

While many people think of the Pumpkin Run Nationals as the last real car show of our season, the Clermont Sportsman's Club's annual show the following weekend is always a big draw, generally netting close to 200 entries. This year those entries included a Ford Fairlane GT, a Pontiac GTO, a Chevrolet Impala, a Chevy Chevette, a Cobra, a 1956 Bel Air, and a custom Ford V8.

A Car Show For the Environment

The Annual Clermont Sportsman's Club Car Show raises money to help the causes supported by the host organization. The Sportsman's Club is a social club with a big heart. As a not-for-profit their major concern is to protect the environment. With that in mind they maintain a beautiful wooded area that features its own small lake. But they also support environmental issues throughout Clermont County.

The car show regularly draws a host of beautiful classic and collectible cars from not only nearby but from neighboring states. This year's group included a slick customized Chevy pick-up truck with a homemade mini-camper, a sharp custom Ford, a few old Chevy pick-ups, a rat rod, a Corvette and an El Camino.

Clermont Sportsman's Club

Following the Pumpkin Run it seems that most people begin the process of packing away their cars for the cold months. That is except those folks who know about the annual Clermont Sportsman's Club Car Show. This show, held the week after the gigantic Pumpkin Run always seems to have two things happen. One, the weather pretty much seems about as perfect as possible, with above average temperatures and no rain. The other is that a nice array of cars always show up; usually around 200 or so.

This year's selection featured an El Camino, a Camaro, a Nova, a Mustang, an old Ford Roadmaster, a 1972 Ford F-100 pick up, and a Volkswagen Beetle.
