Man: “Do you like the Cobra?”
Me: (Looking at all the vintage cars in front of the church entrance) “Yes!”
Man: “Feel free to hop on the driver’s seat!”
Me: “David, come! Isn’t this the car you were telling me about? The Cobra?”
David: “Yep. This car is Awesome!” The Shelby Cobra is an Anglo-American sports car with a Ford V8 engine. There’s only one genuine Cobra left in the world. Go figure!
Senna was loved for his fast and wild laps around Monaco and the ring and tracks all over the world.
I loved watching him rip around the track in an NSX with loafers and zero safety equipment, being vulnerable, allowing the road to take him, trusting the car to work.
An advertisement for "The #Dictaphone" produced by the Columbia Graphophone Company, from page 519 of "The Saturday Evening Post" (1926).⠀
The Columbia #Graphophone Company Limited (Columbia Graphophone Co. Ltd.) was one of the earliest gramophone companies in the United Kingdom.⠀
Founded in 1917 as an offshoot of the American Columbia Phonograph Company, it became an independent British-owned company in 1922 in a management buy-out after the parent company went into receivership because of stock manipulation.⠀
In 1925 it acquired a controlling interest in its American parent company to take advantage of a new electrical recording process. The British firm also controlled the US operations from 1925 until 1931. That year Columbia Graphophone in the UK merged with the Gramophone Company (which sold records under the HMV label) to form EMI, At the same time Columbia divested itself of its American branch, which was eventually absorbed by CBS in 1938.⠀
As Columbia Records, it became a successful British label in the 1950s and 1960s, but was eventually replaced by the newly created EMI Records, as part of an EMI label consolidation. This in turn was absorbed by the Parlophone Records unit of Warner Music Group in 2013.⠀
