Welcome to the ever evolving Blackbird Journal. In our third edition, we reveal the origins of the iconic Beetle; a simple affordable vehicle through wartime conversion to modern cult status. Pivoting from the battlefield to the racetrack, we present impressionistic images of modern Formula One by new racing photo-ace, Jamey Price. We travel to Savannah, Georgia to visit restoration maestro Andy Greene, whose 40-year experiences with returning Ferrari’s to their former glory provide the background for a story of a life combining art and commerce, especially well-lived. We then spring forward to note the arrivals of two very different, and very technically provocative conveyances; BMW’s cutting edge Green statement, the i3 and one of the most desirable and established modern classics, the Porsche 911 Turbo S.
