Default Time Lapse - On The Road



Admittedly, this is a bit off topic. It's a time lapse video set to some horrible music of a guy in a 60's era 'vert driving across the country. Hell, I don't even know what kind of car he's in, but for some reason I was still compelled to post it. T...

Its cool cause the camera's point of view is fixed. Makes you feel like you are looking into someone's life.

What a coincidence, this very sunday I made a 4 hour trip in my '65 Chrysler 300 convertible with a friend of mine. Along the way I mentioned to him that there was a time-lapse video on YouTube of a guy driving across the US in a similar car. I would try to locate the clip and mail it to him, but low and behold, here it is on the JJ's portal...

The car in the clip is a '65 or 6 Chrysler product. I don't recognize the doorpanels as of yet.

Here's a quick shot of my '65 300's interior...

Pretty cool! Me and a buddy used to do stuff like that with an old 8mm and a timer that would click off one fps. Not quite the same quality bet hey we were only 16.

If I was him I would be afraid you'd be able to see all the times I was picking my nose. I guess the video goes too fast to catch that though.

I'm amazed that several times he left the car parked outside overnight, with the top down, and the camera was still there in the morning!

I gotta admit that was pretty cool ... too bad Dave Schaub (HAMBer Butcher Boy) didn't have a video camera rolling during his "49 in 9" deal (click HERE).

neato....driven accross country a few times now....took a lot longer than 4 minutes.
last time was in a '66 442.

plan on taking my 70 chevelle (my first car bought at age 15, and just restored -frame off over the last 2 years) and drive that car from ocean to ocean. I plan on starting at the atlantic ocean in Maine, and dipping my front wheels in the pacific ocean in CA. ---- one of those crazy dreams Ive always had and plan on achieving within the year.

The chevelle also has ice cold AC - that 66 didnt and it was brutal going through rte 40 in the summer. blew the water pump in arkansas and replaced it at a waffle house with a crowd standing around us...I think it was 100 degrees on that pavement.....ohhhhh...the fun ......wouldnt change it for the world though....

Very interesting concept. I'd like to do the same thing only in real time, and live, from coast to coast. Still working on it for spring.

Well then now that explains the break down! Just kidding that was pretty cool I am wondering how he mounted it that the camera was there in the morning as well! Neat idea and the message explanation in the beginning makes it all make sense very cool!

Makes me want to jump in the '66 Toronado and go.. Convert sure adds to the "feel"...

Love to see what he rigged to film.. Camera in the trunk and a remote Lens ?...

Nothing to do with Rods , but I love the way this kid filmed his trip across China
