Pinin, Pinin, Pininfarina

I got to do some interesting stuff last weekend when on a filming shoot.

Last weekend, a friend who was visiting North Yorkshire invited me up for a day out, which I was more than happy to go to, seen as I hadn't really seen any car friends since last year. Little did I know, that a day out soon turned into a filming shoot for our YouTube channels and in turn became one of the best weekends of the year so far.

3 Pininfarina Styled Cars

The reason behind my friends visit was that one of them owned this little gem. A 1960's Austin A40 Farina, that was originally in ITV's Heartbeat and they were bringing it back to its fictional home.

Along with that, one of my best friends, Keiran, brought his 1971 MGB GT and another friend of ours, Steven, brought his Wolseley 18/85 Landcrab. All three cars were pristine and designed by Pininfarina, so they were right at home in the idyllic village of Goathland.

Driving an MGB GT For The First Time

One highlight of the weekend was the moment when Keiran handed me the keys to his beloved 1971 MGB GT. I had never driven one of these before until now, so this was a very special moment and now I really want one of them for a weekend classic. I am developing a video on this at the moment but for now, here is me, struggling to wind up the drivers window... Don't Laugh.

Classic Filled Fun

All in all it was a fantastic weekend and you will see more in future videos/ articles but for now, here are some more pictures to tide you over

  • I had no idea the MGB GT was a Pininfarina design! Thanks!

  • That Wolseley Six looks nice. We don't have those in the states. But the MGB GT is an awesome car.

  • The wolseley was absolutely wonderful. It isn't to belong to an Earl and was chauffeured around in it. It's plush to say the least. I almost fell asleep in the back! Plus you can't not love an MGB GT.
