A vintage car bought for restoration by a young Donegal man killed in a road accident is in the spotlight at an event in his memory.
Jamie Bonner of Dungloe died in a two-car collision between Creeslough and Portnablagh in September 2020.
A second man, Michael McGinley of Creeslough, died of his injuries in the days following the crash.
Jamie’s family hosted an event in his memory to mark World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims.
The Classic and Classic Car Show takes place Sunday at Rosses Community School in Dungloe.
Jamie had bought a Ford Sierra he planned to restore last winter.
Her father Declan, brother Shane and a family friend restored the car and it will be on display at Sunday’s event.
“It will be a proud day to have the car to school on Sunday,” said Jamie’s mother Carmel.
Carmel said that she, Declan, Shane and Clara’s sister, were blown away by the generosity of so many who have donated, donated raffle prizes and offered to help.
“It will definitely be a more important day than we expected,” she said.
“People are so generous. We are just overwhelmed by the generosity of the community. Foreigners also made donations. It has been incredible.
She said Sunday would be a very emotional day, but it would help Jamie’s family and friends remember Jamie. The event will be followed by others who have lost loved ones on the roads.
“It’s going to be a tough day and a very emotional day, but it shows just how respected, popular and appreciated Jamie was by young and old. His friends have been great – they always keep in touch with us. It is not easy for them to call home. It is very kind of them to keep in touch and it means so much.
Jamie was a student at Rosses Community School and Carmel thanked the school and the board for using the grounds for the event, which runs from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m.
The Mid West Donegal Vintage Car Club helps organize the car show.
Funds raised that day will go to Gemma’s Legacy of Hope, a Dungloe-based counseling service, and Hugh’s House, which provides accommodation for parents with children at Temple Street, Holles Street, The Coombe and Rotunda hospitals. .

“When the girl of your dreams gives you the car of your dreams! Kourtney Kardashian surprises her delighted fiancé Travis Barker with a vintage $ 205,000 Buick GNX for his 46th birthday










Kourtney Kardashian gave her fiance Travis Barker the car of her dreams for her 46th birthday this weekend.

While the Blink-182 drummer did not specify the model or year of his new wheels, the 42-year-old reality star appears to have gifted him a vintage Buick GNX, which costs around $ 205,000, according to Motor Biscuit.

In the eyes of car enthusiasts, the high price tag is apparently justifiable as it is considered an “80s supercar” and is faster than most luxury sports cars..

Barker’s post comes as they celebrated him in another year of living in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.

The entrepreneur’s future stepchildren, Alabama Barker and Landon Barker, used their social media accounts to share scenes from the family vacation.

Landon has appeared on TikTok to post video clips of the group riding on the beach.

Kourtney and Travis were seen holding hands as they rode the majestic animals side by side.

For the relaxing activity, Kourtney wore an off-the-shoulder print top, black stockings, and a pair of dark cowboy boots. Her hair was pulled back.

The birthday boy wore a black sleeveless t-shirt with a yellow skull on the front.

He was wearing a black baseball cap worn inside out, black pants, and black shoes. The fashionable rock star wore several chains around her neck.

A sunset was the backdrop for the image of the lovebirds who can’t seem to hold hands.

On Wednesday afternoon, the wellness guru continued to share footage from the trip.

Drawing on the photo-sharing app, she posted other selections of stories, starting with a view of dozens of black balloons on the floor of their Mexican digs.

Hanging from virtually invisible streamers were silver balloons that spelled “Happy Birthday Travis.”

They were hung in front of a large arched window that offered a view of the pool and the ocean.

Teasing even more snippets from their trip, the newly hired media personality posted a photo of a waterfall and a large villa door that had multi-colored stained glass panels.

ISLAMABAD:

Vintage car enthusiasts from across the country attended an exhibition titled “Heritage on Wheels” on Tuesday organized by Vintage and Classic Cars Club Pakistan (VCCCP) in conjunction with a private hotel in Islamabad.

The 1922 French-made Amilcar was the oldest car at the show, which included 35 vintage cars from Karachi, Lahore and Islamabad. Other classics include the 1954 UK-built Austin Healey, the 1955 TR, and the 1955 US-made Ford Thunderbird.

Some participants drove from Karachi as part of the 11th VCCCP Karachi at Khyber Classic Car Rally 2021.

While owning and maintaining classic cars is considered an expensive taste, hobby patrons see the investment as rewarding.

Speaking on the occasion, VCCCP Chairman Mohsin Ikram said the purpose of the event was to present beautiful vehicles from an earlier era to the public and promote a soft image of Pakistan.

He appreciated the owners of vintage cars for their passion for maintaining these vehicles as cultural artifacts and celebrated that this year’s show included a mother who has come all the way from Karachi with her family.

Visitors admired the colorful and unique assembly of cars as they wandered from model to model, taking photos with their favorites.

Aziz Bolani, the organizer of the exhibition, said that vintage cars are of great importance along with historic sites and buildings.

He added that unlike conventional cars, vintage cars rarely change hands as their owners are often emotionally attached to them, and the memories associated with these cars are a wonderful trip down memory lane.

Antique car store restores temple statue – CBS17.com https://nemgt.org/antique-car-store-restores-temple-statue-cbs17-com/ https://nemgt.org/antique-car-store-restores-temple-statue-cbs17-com/#respond Tue, 09 Nov 2021 15:49:26 +0000 https://nemgt.org/antique-car-store-restores-temple-statue-cbs17-com/ through: PETER SMITH, Associate Press Posted: November 9, 2021 / 10:49 a.m. EST / Update: November 9, 2021 / 10:49 a.m. EST Dave Ley, co-owner of Exoticars, an auto repair shop specializing in classic vehicles, pulls out a restored Buddha statue outside McCandless, Pa.

Workers repaired and repainted the figurine in the Pittsburgh Buddhist Center, which brought it from Sri Lanka over 15 years ago. (AP Photo / Jessie Wardarski)

McCANDLESS, Pa. (AP) – The main branches of Buddhism are often referred to as “vehicles” or paths of spiritual practice.

So it’s only fitting that when the monks at the Pittsburgh Buddhist Center needed a major restoration of its exterior Buddha statue, they turned to an auto restoration shop specializing in classic cars.

This partnership between ancient Asian spirituality and modern American craftsmanship recently came to fruition with the relocation of the newly renovated sparkling white statue to the central temple.

With his eyes closed and seated in the lotus position, the Buddha endured weeks of painstaking work at Exoticars in the town of McCandless, north of Pittsburgh. The statue sat amid an array of vintage vehicles, from Bentleys and Corvettes to Porsches and a 1951 Ford pickup.

Workers removed several coats of deteriorating paint and primer – a task that required precision tools when working on the Buddha’s hair, depicted by detailed curls.

They also fixed cracks in the fiberglass, added a strip of metal to strengthen the base of the statue, and applied a new coat of white body paint, giving it a glass-like sheen in the sun.

According to Dave Ley, co-owner of Exoticars, the repair job has fascinated customers as well as classic car enthusiasts who bring old hot rods and sports cars to the store’s Friday night happy hours.

“There is always something here that people are monitoring progress on,” Ley said, and for a few weeks this fall, the Buddha “has been a big hit.”

The Pittsburgh Buddhist Center practices the Theravada vehicle of Common Buddhism in Sri Lanka, where the monks originated and where the statue was made. Paid for by a donor, the Buddha was first installed in 2006 at the temple’s previous location in Harrison Township, another suburb.

After the original paint began to deteriorate years ago, the monks applied new coats to the top as a temporary measure, said temple abbot Bhante Soorakkulame Pemaratana.

But when they moved earlier this year to their current location in West Deer Township, also north of Pittsburgh, they started looking for a more permanent solution. A carpenter who had previously worked for the temple recommended the auto store.

The result, unveiled at the temple on October 24, is “so awesome” and “beyond my expectations,” Pemaratana said. He expressed his gratitude to Ley and his team for removing the paint by hand rather than using an electric sander, which could have damaged the statue.

“I also appreciate his courage in accepting this job,” said the abbot. “It’s beyond his comfort zone.”

Buddhists use such statues to help focus their devotions and contemplate the virtues of the founder of the religion.

According to Pemaratana, this represents the Buddha in a pose symbolizing samadhi, or stillness. The monks take him regularly to an annual festival celebrating the birth of the Buddha, a gathering that brings together the various Buddhist groups in Pittsburgh.

Pemaratana visited Exoticars for one of the Friday happy hours, delighting many people who he said had never met a Buddhist monk before.

“They saw monks in the movies, but not a real monk,” said the abbot. “I am so happy for the relationship we have built.”

Ley too.

“We thought we were getting good karma,” he said.

Ley also tried out what could become a slogan for the store: “We work on everything from Bentleys to Buddhas. ”

Kaizer Chiefs star Bernard Parker appears to have confidence in himself after his recent exploits, and the rejuvenated forward shows it during his recent cruise in a Gusheshe.

In Parker’s recent outing against Supersport United, the veteran Amakhosi pocketed a stunning brace that came with an emotional response amid the abuse reported by some fans.

Scroll through the gallery above to see Bernard Parker showing off his Gusheshe

In recent seasons, ‘Die Hond’ hasn’t been as prolific as it used to be, and the pressure of being a seasoned figure in an underperforming Kaizer Chiefs team in recent campaigns has taken its toll on the player.

Parker seems to be gradually picking up his pace, and the two finishes against Matsatsantsa have given the star a confidence that has translated even off the pitch.

The 35-year-old took to the streets recently to probably remember why he bought such a cool vehicle as the Gusheshe. This BMW model is synonymous with street culture and there is an undeniable flair that comes with owning and driving.

To top it off, the star was banging on Cassper Nyovest’s classic hit song ‘Gusheshe’, which really showed the kind of spirit the Boss Man was in.

Parker’s is a classic convertible fitted with red leather seats. Unsurprisingly, this isn’t his only car, as the former Thanda Royal Zulu forward appears to have a red Range Rover SUV.

Your opinions, please?

How many goals do you think Bernard Parker will score this season?

There was great excitement in the Necarne Equestrian Park over the weekend as spectators enjoyed touring and seeing vintage cars during a three day event.

The Erne Vintage Classic Car Show took place last weekend raising over £ 18,000 so far for Air Ambulance Northern Ireland.

The event, sponsored by Fermanagh and Omagh District Council, was hosted by George Ogle and his team of assistants and featured over 80 vintage cars, tractors and motorcycles inside the center of Necarne and brought together over 2 000 people throughout the weekend.

The NI Air Ambulance rescue helicopter also attended the event for a few hours on Saturday afternoon, allowing visitors and nearby residents to see it and speak in person to the medical and aviation team.

Damien McAnespie, Head of Fundraising for Air Ambulance NI, said: “The Erne Vintage Classic Car Show has been a fantastic event for car enthusiasts and families.

“A tremendous amount of work from George Ogle has gone into organizing this event and I want to thank him for all of his efforts.

“We also had 26 NI Air Ambulance volunteers who attended the event throughout the three days and we appreciate their support in making the show run.

“The provisional sum of £ 18,000 raised to date will allow the NI HEMS (Helicopter Emergency Medical Service) air ambulance to fly and respond to trauma and medical incidents for more than three days. At an average task rate of two calls per day, this will have a huge impact on saving lives, brains and limbs. ”

“Air Ambulance NI, in partnership with the Northern Ireland Ambulance Service, provides HRMS for the province. Our HEMS can reach any point in NI within 25 minutes, providing emergency prehospital care and intensive care interventions from our physician and paramedic team at the scene of the incident in an effort to save lives. , brains and limbs.

“We are very grateful to all of our supporters and encourage everyone to do what they can to keep the service here for all of us.”

From Bollywood celebrities and sportsmen to businessmen, here are 8 famous vintage car owners in India.

Like fashion and technology, automobiles are very expressive of the design language and innovation of an era. Vintage cars are simply relics of a bygone era and almost as if they own a piece of the past. I guess that’s what makes it so valuable and attractive. Among the many vintage car owners in Inia, we are shortlisting a few big names from B-Town and the companies here.

Vintage car owners in India –

Amitabh Bachchan’s Ford Warden

It convinces me that cars can look good in sunflower yellow. Big B owns a vintage Ford Prefect which is cute and cool. The car was given to him by a very close and dear friend. The Ford Prefect was produced in the UK between 1938 and 1961 and was a high society cruiser. I bet deep down you want to drive too.

Dharmendra’s Fiat 1100

Just days ago, B-Town veteran Dharmendra gave us a glimpse of the very first car he owned. The Fiat 1100 was a city staple in its day simply for its efficiency and affordability. Today, it is nothing less than a relic of the past that the previous generation cherishes to this day. The Dharmendra 1100 features a sleek black and bronze theme.

Pontiac Firebird from MS Dhoni

Vintage car owners in india ms dhoni pontiac firebird

In August of last year, as Indian captain Cool MS Dhoni announced his retirement from international cricket, he also treated himself to a mysterious Pontiac Firebird. We know that Dhoni is a very demanding driver, it proves that he is a man of unique taste. Interestingly, it’s also left-hand drive since Pontiac designed this car with American streets in mind. Mahi is also one of India’s most famous vintage car owners.

Jackie Shroff’s Jaguar 100 SS

vintage car owners in India

Shroff doesn’t compromise when it comes to making a stylish statement, whether it’s his attitude, his wardrobe or his cars. He owns a white SS Jaguar 100 which is simply a thing of elegance. It is a vibrant expression of the automotive design of its time and a proof of simple elegance.

Hrithik Roshan 1966 Ford Mustang

vintage car owners in india hrithik roshan mustang

Besides his Rolls-Royce and Maybach, Roshan also owns a vintage American pony. This 1966 Ford Mustang is classic automotive rock ‘n’ roll and a true class of its own. If you ask me, I’d rather own this vintage model than its contemporary predecessor, but guess how much this stallion would fetch?

Rajnikanth’s First Padmini

Rajnikanth collection of cars owners of vintage cars in India

Rajni is one of the most prolific faces in Southern cinema, and yet he remains humble. This First Padmini is the proof; it is also the very first car he owned. We have seen tons of fake videos on the internet about Rajnikanth owning Bugattis and Maybachs, but in reality he is said to have a simple taste for engines. Fun fact: The Padmini is also a basic ‘kali-peeli’ taxi in Mumbai. It might not be lavish, but it’s definitely a name and car design that everyone recognizes.

Yohan Poonawalla 1960/61 Rolls Royce Silver Cloud II

vintage car owners in india yohan poonawalla

If you scroll down Yohan’s IG page, you might think this is an exotic car wallpaper website. I don’t think we even have a fixed number in Poonawalla’s garage, but here is one of the many models that caught my eye – this timeless RR Silver Cloud II is incredibly breathtaking for its elegance, rarity and heritage of vintage luxury. is holding. Without a doubt one of the most famous vintage car owners in India.

Yohan Poonawalla’s Mercedes Benz 190 SL Roadster

The Century-old car tour of state parks will make stops at Ledges, Big Creek and Spring Lake parks on Saturday as part of a quest to visit all of Iowa’s state parks to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Iowa State Park System, established in 1920.

The public is invited to join the tour in their own cars, although their vehicles are not vintage or classic.

Visits to the park were originally scheduled for 2020, but the COVID-19 pandemic got in the way. Newly rescheduled, it debuted in southeast Iowa on Oct. 9 for a six-day event at 22 parks.

The planned visit includes a three-day visit this week to eight parks in southwest Iowa. The third and final loop of the 2021 trip will last two days to visit six parks in west-central Iowa, including Ledges. Consult the schedule on annareamodela.com/westcentral.
