Why I drive. It’s an interesting thought to ponder, don’t you think? Not the basic, obvious answer of why I drive—like, to get places—but more specifically why I drive a vehicle that requires thought to drive. Why I drive a vehicle that brings up all kinds of emotions behind the wheel. Why I drive a vehicle that at times seems alive and full of stories. Why I drive something that is not foolproof nor easy. Why I drive a vehicle traveled before. It’s simple.
I drive for the pure joy of being a part of the story this old truck has to tell.
Several weeks ago, my pal, Corrine, sent me a message saying she nominated me for a series called, Why I Drive for Hagerty Classics. At first, I hesitated. I’m a behind-the-camera girl, not an in front of one. But then the producer contacted me, we had a lovely chat, he pitched my story to Hagerty, and Bam! The following weekend, we shot the segment.
To say it was a fun day would be an understatement.
It was a spectacular day of driving Bondorella in some of the prettiest terrain around.
Aaron and Robert made being in front of the camera easy and were such a pleasure to be with. Efficient, creative, focused, and super fun.
And wow. Am I ever blown away by the end result. PLUS… I picked up some ideas for shooting outside of broadcast news, as I did over the last twenty-four years. My hubby and I finished out the day with the biggest smiles. That’s the kind of work I want to do. Bring joy instead of sadness, just like Aaron and Robert did.
Okay, okay. I’ll stop babbling now so you can watch. The video is far more interesting than my words.
Until next time…
