Spring is moving across the country! How are you and how are you preparing for the season? I hope that everything is actively moving forward. I also have a blockage.
I did a little work here and fell out of communication, but overall everything went according to plan. I was recently taken to Maryino, but I was even happy because it was an opportunity to finally visit the Lomakov Automobile Museum. It was not me. Rare reports of visiting this place occasionally appear on the Internet, but there have been very few of them recently. In general it was clear that nothing has changed in Lomakovka. For some it may be bad, but for this place it is unfortunately a big plus. A visit to Lomakovka is like a date with the past and it's nice. It's stability! Everything changes, but nowadays for some reason the changes are not encouraging, so such an island of stability only brings positive emotions to me personally. For me it is personal. But objectively Lomakovka is of course a miracle for the discerning enthusiast and fan of real retro cars. form the "Lomakovka" mega steep, unaffordable. This is also our story, the story of SAMS-sa and everything related to it. This is an altar. Unfortunately, the internet is often held responsible for this museum, which sticks to clutter and many shortcomings and forgets the main thing – about the richest collection of really unique cars. Such a position and opinion only comes from ignorance and a mediocre attitude to the topic: Lomakovka does something unique, shows us the rarest pearls, only here – if you understand that and appreciate it! All this is all the more valuable if you know the history of these exhibits. Look at the old photos and appreciate everything that is connected with them.
I'm not talking about a street storage room now, but only about the main pavilion.
Alexander Lomakov's "slander" policy began in the late 1980s. Suffice it to recall the ubiquitous stories about the "Khor Cap" and "Horrh Goering", other nonsense, nonsense, and a number of other stories. SAMS did not collapse without it. In general, I am a supporter of conspiracy theories and think that everything always happens for one reason: who had to destroy SAMS? Perhaps those who subsequently exported unique and priceless cars from our country with trains directly to Germany and the USA in private collections. Maybe the one who got lucky in this dirty business? Maybe all of these things and compromising real and big people like Alexander Lomakov – links in a chain? I am sure that there are those who know the answers to these questions for sure.
And we only have what we have and what we have left. Lomakovka is what we have left over from SAMS. Why Lomakovka? First, because it is directly related to Lomakov's “oldest”. Second, the museum, Zadorozhnogo is also good and there are SAMS cars, but the focus there is not on history, but on the automotive culture as a whole, impersonal. The last moment in the Zadorozhny Museum also began to shift the emphasis on history and personality.
In Lomakovka all the exhibits simply shout for themselves, they embody history – they are living stories!
I enjoyed it very much when I saw these incomparable machines again. Well, exhibits of such a high standard – this is a diamond behind the mirror, outrageous, like a consistency of glamor and luxury that is simply beyond the reach of mortals. Where does it come from when the costs of the instances sovereignly amount to millions of euros each? Roughly speaking, of course. Develop what has been said. one would like to exclaim – how do all these Mercians and Khoryu deal with this really priceless and noble patina? Not everyone is certain to see such unique cars in the patina – we are lucky because there is Lomakovka!
When this simple thing will finally reach us all, I'm never afraid! And it is not known how long it will take – it is usually a wonder that the Lomakov Automobile Museum is not known to anyone. I really want it to be as long as possible but on the contrary everything that happens is very tense but let's hope for the best.
Speaking of Dima Lomakov, I better answer Slava Lena 's direct speech in the Ministry of Culture a few years ago: "Dima didn't have to do anything, he already did everything – he kept the legacy of his legendary father when he was a Could become a multi-millionaire of the dollar. " It's easy to sell just a few cars from the Lomakov Sr. collection. If this had happened, we would never have seen these historically significant unique cars because they would have left our country immediately. "Next, concrete examples are repeated of cases of Dmitriy's categorical refusal to ruffle such tempting offers. This is already without transfer. What can I say? I totally agree with Len.
Now to the minus points and they are there objectively, they are not a few. The lack of change is an undeniable plus in this case, but it still leaves a stable feeling of stagnation. It is uncomfortable. Something always has to happen and move. "Lomakovka" used to be active, there were many events, Dima drove his cars to the Sorokin vintage car gallery, I remember participating in some autoexotics in Tuschino. Now you can't see anything, the feeling that nothing is happening at all. It is sad, especially when you look at it here, the real historical meaning that “Lomakovka” may have and that has to be constantly developed and realized. I didn't like the feeling of mess in the pavilion. In addition to cars, there are a large number of good rare motorcycles and bicycles, technical history items, unique units and assemblies of antique cars. All of this is of great interest, but the feeling that everything is scattered. There are also uninteresting cars and this neighborhood with the coolest Mercedes personally depresses me. I want it differently, but the owners know better.
One has the impression that unique cars – this is an expensive collection that Lomakovka takes to an unbelievable height – also played a cruel joke with the museum – there is nowhere to strive for when you already have everything!
Lomakov Sr. was literally a lot of living energy in this regard – a real ascetic!
It is likely that there are reasons and answers for everything, it is possible that everything is due to some difficulties and circumstances. I do not know. So I'm not going to judge anyone, everything that has been said is just my opinion. In general, I advise you to visit because – everyone should see it! Nobody knows what will happen tomorrow. It is a living story! Well, a photo of the legendary Lomakov cars! They have all seen them more than once, of course, but you can watch them endlessly because they are great cars! <img src = "http://www.nastroy.net/
