    It's unfortunate that I have not learnt how to use the software, it was all i could do just to drop a music track onto it. Which could cause the video to be deleted shortly.

    Thanks for letting me know Chris, I will check it now. It's all new to me, can't find my old youtube account, have set up another one, I didn't even look at the settings. Was on 'private' as a default.

    Fabulous Michael, like being there, almost got the sensation of the car rising on startup

    Love that BVH

    Nice first effort, Michael. Keep playing with the camera and the video software. You'll eventually get what you want in little time.

    Fond memories for me too, we took that car to the UK last year, it didn't make it back.
    Exactly, my stylist had the day off that day, it always the way.

    We live inner city...... we've had to make sacrifices. Thankfully that car saw plenty of open road, including running around Tassie, Adelaide, and northern NSW. Greatly missed, garage space just another sacrifice we've had to make for city living. Luckily or Jennifer would have 10 DS's by now, lol.

    That's a reverse parking lesson, all you need is a long run up.

    I hate it when my stylist has the day off too, you never know what is hanging out!
    Car looks great Michael. That is the one with the silver roof yeah?, and you now have one in the same colour but with a gold roof yeah? just to confuse us.
    I like the way you make the gear changes and speed humps look totally effortless.
    Looking forward to more DS road trip adventures.
    cheers Tony

    Great video. Two questions.

    1. Maybe I missed it because there is no car audio, but isn't it a rule that we put our seatbelt on after we start the engine. Then by the time she has risen, belt is done up.

    2. Do you really need to put a BVH in Neutral when stopped at the lights or are you just showing off how good the car is. Light goes green, move lever, car moves virtually instantly.

    Moving the gear lever to neutral when stopped avoids having to keep the foot on the brake to prevent creep & showing the brake lights. Foot on the brake drops the idle below clutch engagement speed if properly set up.
    The clutch is still held disengaged in neutral. I must admit that blinding the following driver at night with the D brake lights is doubtful .

    Good stuff Mr Berry! I am so looking forward to my new BVH box, which gets attached to the engine this weekend!! When you say 'getting used to the software' does GoPro supply editing software or are you using something like iMovie?
    DS23 Pallas BVM Vert Argente - in ground up restoration, soon to be BVH.
    DSpecial 4speed Beige Vanneau, previous ; XM 2.0, maroon, my first.
    And a variety of the usual crapboxes before seeing the light. Except my Mini Cooper with the 3.4 cam and twin webers - that wasn't a POS.

    Great area around the Domain. Nice inner Melbourne South Yarra drive . How come they wouldn't let you go further past the Observatory / Herbatorium?

    Something at Government house I believe, can't really remember the conversation, but if had remembered I had the camera going I would have just driven trough, you know, for comedic effect.

    It's iMovie. Was a fantastic program about 13 years ago, now it's a cut down version of Final Cut Pro and requires a master degree in editing to operate it. I will do the tutorial when I get the chance. It's actually really good software, I'm the weak link in this equation.

    I generally prefer videos like this without music. Hearing the vehicle, and street sounds, will be much more valuable as time passes. We can add our own music if we desire, and you can even recommend a track that you'd like us to couple with it (particularly with your taste in jazz being so good)!

    I'd like to see a go pro mounted with view of the front wheel while in motion; somewhere on the lower A panel.

    A lovely car you have, mberry!

    Beautiful car Michael, and a particularly smooth BVH.
    Re the hold up, the "Traffic Management" plan didn't include any detour options, which made it invalid. That big dude would have been arguing with people all morning, I'd be guessing.

    ahh okay. I'm about to get the latest version of iMovie so I can help a mate out. I use old school FCP and Avid so it will be interesting to see what this newfangled 'intuitive' software is like.. I have found in the past that Youtube is the cheapest training ground out there... sometimes the 'teachers' can be a bit hard to watch or listen to.

    Now that my DS is getting closer to completion my thoughts are turning to wiring up a decent camera system in with the loom. The hardest part is deciding where to put the lens so it doesn't detract from the car.
