Previously, when the street is not so crowded like now, people like to use vehicle with huge size. It is because in that time, cars could be counted easily. Recently, every inch of the street is filled with vehicle. Classic cars slow but sure, are left by the users. The space on earth is narrower time by time because of the massive human population progress.
The old cars for daily usage are now not effective and efficient for busy workers. However, there is always one time in our life that we miss the different ambience. Our busy days need to be off for a while. Every day, we drive our city car or motorbike to the office. Classis cars can be one of the relaxing entertainments to escape from the reality.
Classic Cars Tour
When the words classic cars are said, the movie fans may remember about 1960s movies. In the cinema, there are movies that tell us about 1960s such as G.I Blues (a movie stared by Elvis Presley). Some scenes take place on the road and the star drives an old unique car. It can create the ambience of the 1960s to the scene. Because we will have a tour with the classic cars, this ambience will be ours too. It will be hard and cost a lot of money if we buy that old vehicle. Because of that financial reason, we don’t need to buy and have it on our own.
There are some places that provide service to rent the classic car for our tour. The worry about the stamina of the cars can be pushed aside. The strong reason is that there are many people who already proven that this old vehicle could do just like the current vehicle. Despite many of them have the engines renewal, but the enchantment of these old cars cannot be easily rejected. There is always a strong desirability to drive or at least to try. Take Jogja for our object example. Jogja has bunch of objects that are attractive. Almost every year, Jogja opens a new place as tour object. With classic cars, we explore the new places of Jogja with special way.
Classic Cars Tour And Batik
From the words, there may be no relation between classic cars and batik. Classic cars are the cars we read above. While batik is the traditional painting exclusively produced in Indonesia. From here we can have the silver lining. Guess what! Jogja is one of the regions that produce batik. There are so many great batik artist were born in Jogja. When commemorating batik national day, there is a terrific idea to combine the classic of batik and the old cars.
The cars are painted with batik design. Some batik artist prints the batik design on the sticker, cut it then adhere it on the car surface. That method does not ruin the original paint. Some other really draw on the car with serious brush and permanent paint. It takes longer time to finish but that doesn’t matter because the artist will get his satisfaction. This parade presents the theme that batik is not just for human clothing. It is also ‘cloth’ for car. The results of the batik cars are very magnificent and beautiful.
Classic On Classic
The classic auto & cars that are successful to be in batik design are, first, a car which is like Beetle (a car launched by Volkswagen). This car hasn’t been revealed the model and the brand, but based on the appearance, it looks like Beetle. The next one will be the Beetle car belongs to Yudi. He designs the car with three dominant colors (yellow, black and red). It represents the German flags where the car comes from. With those three colors, the Java traditional batik design is drawn on the car surface. The appearance looks so harmony although it is a combination from two different cultures.
The Indonesian musician, Piyu, the guitarist of Padi Band also designs his classic car with batik. We never have idea that Piyu has a very good taste in choosing classic car as his hobby. Many celebrities and musicians choose super luxurious car with the sophisticated facilities. Most of them show their success in finance by owning expensive sport car. Piyu may be different and has meaningful reason behind that. Moreover, he put batik design on the car. This is what we call classic on classic, or luxury on luxury. The meaning is the car has classic taste, and covered by classic batik design.
