Stiu ca era o persoana destul de controversa in lumea vehiculelor istorice. Totusi, in fimlele lui, cand de multe ori masinile erau vedete, el a popularizat ideea masinilor de epoca, a salvat multe masini, si ce s-a distrus in filme 1) era de obicei irrecuperabil si 2) a rezultat in niste scene iubite de spectatori. Plymouth si Mercedes 170 erau multe in anii 70, majoritatea in stare de epava, ca si astazi. Iar masinile cu adevarata valoare (Stutz, Cadillac, chiar Buickurile 99% originale in folosinta si astazi) erau pastrate si iubite. Rest in peace!
I know he was a fairly controversial character in the classic car world. However he was one of the first to bring the concept of historic vehicles to Romania: in his films, the cars were also the stars. He also saved many vehicles. The ones which were destroyed were 1) beyond redemption and 2) gave keen pleasure to viewers. Plymouths and Mercedeses 170 were plentiful back then (as indeed they are today); while cars of real scarcity and value (Stutz, Cadillac, even the pair of almost completely original Buicks still running today) were appreciated as such. Rest in peace!
