Jaden Chalmers, 18, was a hard worker. He was Brandon’s reliable big brother, even though the two were only six months apart. Jaden knew how to listen and be there when Brandon needed him. The two brothers shared a love for all things automotive, with Jaden having a passion for vintage trucks. Several years ago, the boys discovered a hidden gem on their uncle’s property. They found a 1988 Chevrolet Caprice Classic Brougham.

Brandon and Jaden Chalmers both shared a passion for cars, so much so that when they found a 1988 Caprice sitting in their uncle’s garden, the brothers embarked on the project of rebuilding it together. (Photo provided by Brandon Chalmers)

“It was used in the 1988 Olympics as a ferry car for all the judges and officials,” Brandon said. “My brother said this was the car he wanted to work on.”

The brothers were about to begin their labor of love, but before the car could be rebuilt, Jaden died after being involved in a fatal car accident in September. Although Brandon’s brother is no longer with him, he decided to continue their journey together and chose to continue working on the car. with renewed meaning and purpose.

Brandon said he chose a cnady apple red paint job for the car he was rebuilding as a tribute to his late brother.

“I decided, as a tribute car, that I’m going to build the car he wanted to build and I’m going to finish it for him.”

Chalmers, who lives in Crossfield, said friends and acquaintances who had heard of his plans wanted to help him. So he decided to start a gofundme campaign to help pay for some of the car’s rebuilds. Brandon said Jaden is not just a fan of cars, but big sound systems as well; so he hopes to install a state-of-the-art sound system for his late brother. But aside from the high-tech gadgets, Brandon also decided to add a deeply personal touch to the car.

“I have already prepared the hood [and under it] i will take a picture [of Jaden]”, he said. “It will be like a commemorative photo and because I meet a lot in the car, when I park it, I can open the hood and there will be a photo of him, isn’t it? it not? It will be as if he were always with me.”

Although Brandon said he hasn’t publicly shared with others the grief and pain since Jaden’s passing, he admitted there have been many sleepless nights, questioning all the assumptions. . He said the car project made it more bearable.

“I’ve spent countless nights in the store until 3am, listening to music and working on the car. It’s totally helped me because I feel like I’m doing something for him,” Brandon said. “I feel like a lot of people are thinking well, what can I do now? So it definitely gave me some kind of relief that I was doing something for him, and something he would have loved.”

Looking back on his favorite memories, Brandon said he often remembers all the ski trips he and his brother took, saying those trips.

“We used to go to the mountains a lot and my brother and I were close. We had great memories, but I have to say my favorite is when I was skiing with him and just spending the day with him.”

Way of life

Mazin Al Kahatib, Founder and CEO of Nostalgia Classic Cars, talks about how he turned his passion for collecting and restoring classic cars into a thriving business.

What does the first 30 minutes of your day look like, your morning routine?

I start my day reading newspaper headlines to understand what is happening in the world. Then I read the previous day’s sales report and shop reports to make a list of what needs to be done for the same day. I then have a quick meeting with the admin, sales and workshop manager for 10 minutes.

What inspired you to launch Nostalgia Classic Cars?

It’s been a dream of mine since I became a banker. I knew that after accomplishing what I wanted to accomplish in my banking career, I could turn my passion into a business.

Nostalgic cars

Every car should tell a story. Does this have an impact on your decision when buying a car?

When it was a hobby of mine, it was. Now, when I look at it from a business perspective, I buy based on market demand and need. Of course, when it comes to collecting classic cars, history plays a big role in buying.

The concept is located in one of Dubai’s main artistic hubs. Was this the plan from the start?

I consider my collection as works of art and when I was thinking and deciding on a place, of course Alserkal Avenue came to mind, because it is one of the first “art centers from Dubai. Therefore, the decision was made to be located in Alserkal Avenue.

What is the first car you restored?

The first car I restored was the 1948 Packard.

Nostalgic cars

You are the first of its kind in the UAE. How did you see a gap in the market?

I learned my lesson the hard way as they say. When I was a hobbyist, I struggled to find the best body repairer or the best mechanic or the best painter and my car was moving from one place to another. It always made me think about having a one stop shop that covers everything when it comes to catering. Nostalgia Classic Cars Workshop does just that. No matter what project we do, the car never leaves the site until the job is done. If we need additional support, we outsource it to other stores. Everything from A to Z is done under one roof, this is what differentiates Nostalgia Classic Cars from all the other players on the market.

What advice would you recommend to those who wish to invest in the collection of vintage cars?

When it comes to investing in and collecting vintage cars, choosing the right make and model is important. Try to have a detailed history of the car as much as possible. It is imperative to prove the originality of the car and its parts, including interior, mechanics and bodywork.

Vintage and classic car enthusiasts recently gathered in the lower car park of the Laois Shopping Center in Portlaoise for the annual indoor vintage and classic car show.

The charity event, which attracted up to 450 vehicles, was organized by the Ballinakill Vintage and Classic Owners Club and its show committee with support from members of the Portlaoise Lions Club, Laois Vintage Limited and the management of the Laois shopping center.

While admission was free, donations were welcome with funds raised the same day towards the Hospice du Laois, whose volunteers were on hand to inform visitors from near and far about the work in progress. that the hospice leads to Laois and the surrounding area.

With no such shows of this nature due to Covid nationwide for the past two years, pent-up demand was expected from exhibitors. So much so that car owners started arriving at the scene the day before to choose the most advantageous place to show their pride and joy.

Many exhibitors who traveled from across the country over the holiday weekend and stayed at local bed and breakfasts and hotels within walking distance of the venue.

The planned venue in the shopping center attracted visitors and exhibitors from across Ireland for what was likely to be the last major show of its kind this year for this increasingly popular hobby.

Exhibitors presented many rare vehicles from the last century. An Autojumble was also on hand which attracted many enthusiasts who either picked up a bargain or spotted this elusive kit to complete a restoration project.

While many enthusiasts were members of vintage or classic car clubs, others not associated with clubs were also invited to exhibit their vehicles.

All exhibitors and visitors were protected from the weather with other amenities nearby including shops, cafes and toilets all under one roof which proved to be an added benefit for all.

Following the success of the event, the Ballinakill Vintage and Classic Owners Club said they would again like to thank the management and customers of Laois Shopping Center for their co-operation in hosting the show and providing a so excellent exhibition space.

Two car-obsessed brothers proudly display their fleet of vintage cars on a Birmingham street, inspired by the late Queen Elizabeth II.

Shoukat Ali and his brother Bugsy have around 100 cars including Rolls Royces, Bentleys, Porsches and a Nissan Skyline GTR.

They own a dozen properties on Washwood Heath Road in Ward End and store some of the vehicles at the front and back of the properties.

The brothers own so many cars that they ask tenants to sign a written contract allowing them to park a Bentley or a Rolls Royce Phantom in the driveways or at the back of the houses.

They are also asking neighbors to let them use their driveways for their vehicles.

They even took a neighbor for a ride on his 80th birthday as a thank you for letting them leave a limo on his ride.

Bugsy said: “We have 100 cars, we restore and sell classic cars in garages. We keep some of them on the walkways outside.

“We own a dozen houses on Washwood Heath Road and we have a contract with some of the tenants to park a car in the driveway.

“We leave a space and they are happy. They are neighbors of heaven.

“I have a neighbor named Fred and he’s an army veteran. On his 80th birthday, we took him and his wife to the local pub in a Rolls Royce limo.

“He said it was the best birthday he’s ever had. If they ask to move the car, we’ll do it.

“We like being able to see my cars everywhere. We like to contemplate them.

“Even the local police are nice to us and let us know when the car tax is up. Everyone knows us.”

Bugsy explained that their interest in vintage cars dates back to childhood.

He continued: “We have always loved cars.

“When I was a kid my uncle used to take me in his Mini 1275 GT and our neighbor from Washwood Heath Road was an undertaker who had a Rolls Royce Silver Shadow.

“He used to take me in there when I was 10. My uncles were car salesmen and we used to go to auctions when we were kids.

“After the 90s, my uncle made me keep a few cars here and there. Everyone copies someone. I don’t copy the Tik-Tokers, I copy the Queen.

“I loved her style, the glamor and she rode in a Rolls Royce Phantom. I have up to 20 Rolls Royces from the 1960s.

“My favorite is the Rolls Royce Corniche which I bought for £40,000 about two years ago. It’s sleek and beautiful. There’s a lambswool carpet everywhere and you don’t get a visor. -shocks like that.

“The Rolls Royce Limousines are linked to a Duke who was the Queen’s cousin, but I’m not sure. I bought it from a car collector.

The brothers turn Street into Vintage Car Showcase 2

Admitting he doesn’t know how much the collection is worth, Bugsy said:

“Some of them will stay with me for life, some I will sell and then buy something. I have to make a living.

Shoukat added:

“New cars are just plastic. Old cars are the best. If they were in a garage, you would never see them.

Although the vintage cars are in one of Birmingham’s most criminal areas, Bugsy isn’t worried.

He said: “I’m not worried about them being stolen.

” It’s my domain. I have lived here all my life. I’ve had people from out of town try their luck, but all the neighbors are watching me.

“It’s a tight-knit community. People know not to play with us.

The sun shone around Chateau de Mey on Sunday as members of a vintage vehicle club paid tribute to a very special car.

Starting in Scrabster Harbour, a convoy of classics took part in the Bluebell Coastal Run – a special event organized by Caithness and Sutherland Vintage and Classic Vehicle Club (CSVCVC) to celebrate the rescue of a Standard 10 from crashing in the under the government’s scrappage scheme.

Club member Tom Sayles, who was driving Bluebell that day and responsible for his backup, said: “This car was swapped by someone at Dunnets in Thurso for a Ford Transit when they had the program of scrapping.

“I found out the car had been put in Speedy Skips in Thurso and was about to be run over. That’s the wrong thing to do, I said, so I took it and drove it. I put it in my garage After talking to Practical Classics and lots of other people we managed to get the DVLA to clear the car to stay on the road That was about five or six years ago year.

As Tom showed off the pristine 1950s vehicle’s basic features and equipment, he said it was in working order when it was scrapped. “Everything was as you see it today and it was ready to go through the grinder to be made into cans of beans.

“At the time of the scrappage scheme people would have gotten £2000 against a modern car, or in this case a Transit. The previous owner had tried to find a buyer but couldn’t sell it, so he just let it go under the scrappage program.”

After the deal was done and the car purchased by CSVCVC, Tom said it was on display at a museum in Dundee and then at the National Motor Museum in Beaulieu for about nine months. “It’s been around the country and in many magazines – it’s a very famous car now.”

The Bluebell Coastal Run gave fellow CSVCVC members a chance to see the little car in action as it traveled at a steady 35mph from Scrabster to Dunnett Head via Thurso and Castletown and then to Latheronwheel via Wick and Lybster . The pit stop at Château de Mey provided club members with a pleasant brunch and the opportunity to show off their vintage vehicles.

Tom said there was still restoration work to be done on Bluebird, such as fitting a new clutch and changing the tyres. “The car did very well today for something that was going to be scrapped. We had the help of a guy called Johnnie Miller from the Sutherland garage who checked everything before driving off.

CSVCVC Vice President Les Bremner said: “It went really well and we’re surprised at the turnout that’s only waiting for a third of these cars. I’m overwhelmed but I think it’s is due to the fact that we have Bluebell here.Lunch and everything was really fantastic and everyone said it was really good.

Residing in the northern province of Amasya, Kemal Bektaş said he bought the 1952 model car 41 years ago for 2,000 liras ($110) and only used it to drive wedding convoys, while being careful not to drive in extremely sunny, rainy and snowy conditions. time.

Noting that he received offers of up to 1.5 million lira for the BMW-branded car, Bektaş did not sell it as it deserves a higher price.

“I searched a lot but couldn’t find a similar one in Turkey,” he said.

“Its second-hand versions exist in Germany. Even his scrap is priced at 30,000 euros,” Bektaş added.

The 67-year-old pointed out that the car doors open in the opposite direction (called suicide doors).

Fascinated by the pearly white car, Aslan Kelek, one of the passers-by said, “I’ve seen a lot of classic cars, but I’ve never seen one so beautiful and different.”

Gönül Yıldız, another passer-by, got behind the wheel and took a souvenir photo with her husband, saying, “The owner took good care of the car, it’s like a part of history.

“The car is my mother’s age. If I was him, I wouldn’t put the car on the street, I would take it out and hide the car at home,” she added.

Each year, a vehicle is named Best in Show following a public vote.

At previous events, real beer tents and a Howes fish and chip van have been set up.
