The Classic Car Collection in Kearney, NE features more than 200 historic automobiles from the early 1900s to the modern era. When they added Pete’s Patriot, a rare 1969 AMC AMX drag car, to the collection they asked us to create a video telling the story behind this historic car.
The former executive director of the Classic Car Collection came to us with an opportunity to showcase a vehicle they had been working to obtain for some time. Knowing the history and hyper-local story of Pete’s Patriot we jumped on the opportunity to get interviews with the original team alongside their famous car that was coming home for good.
We weaved together the personal stories of the original driver, crew chief and former owner of Pete’s Patriot to create a mini-documentary that not only showcased the car but also touched on the impact it had on these men.
We were able to deliver a video that helped visitors at the Classic Car Collection fully appreciate the historic and local impact of Pete’s Patriot.
