A Nürburgring Love Story

I can’t speak German. I suffer from the same clichéd American point-of-view that zee Germanic languages sound threatening and guttural. I know that’s not fair and I’m working on it.

This video helps. Somehow the hushed reverence with which this narrator describes the Ring makes German sound like a soft, romantic, seductive language.

Then again, it’s hard to go wrong with Von Trips, the Ring, and a Bolex camera.

Not that it needs to be said, but Save the Ring.

    That looks like a really early 356A. And I don’t think I’ve seen the pavement at the ‘Ring in worse shape, even in old ’50’s and ’60’s film and stills. Would be interesting to know when this was filmed.
