Daniel Hornstrand

Heyo, I’m the other Daniel, I know totally not confusing, maybe we’ll try and do something about that. Who am I kidding, we’ve been working with that confusion for 17+ years and haven’t figured that out yet, we’ll just continue to confuse you.

I fortunately or unfortunately (I’ll let you decide) have the sickness that is the desire to fix old broken things, most of those things are cars. In our videos I hope we can show the many facets of classic car stewardship. These cars are still on the road because of the work of the many stewards who have looked after them in the years since they rolled off the line. These cars demand a fine level of care, but nothing is out of reach of a charismatic guy or gal, a set of wrenches (spanners if you prefer), and a workshop manual.

We won’t shy away from the struggles but trust me it's not all wrenching and eating grease, when you take that first drive after making a repair all of that sweat is worth it. There simply isn’t anything quite as visceral as driving one of these cars. We hope to capture that and more, to motivate anyone who thinks they may have had exposure to this sickness not to shy away but lean in and become a steward of history.

As if it wasn’t confusing enough I am also a mechanical engineer (go figure). I’ve always had a mind for tinkering and explaining to myself how something works by getting my hands dirty. I currently steward a total of 18 pistons, two of the more interesting owners being a 1962 Austin Mini Cooper and 1973 Ford F250. I hope my experience can interest you enough to learn by doing and get your hands dirty.
