WINTER CLASSIC MOVED 2014

Attention all Classic Car Enthusiasts: Now the weather is starting to get warmer and the daylight hours are lasting longer into the evening it’s time to delve into those dusty garages and retrieve your vintage vehicles.  The Independent website has reported that “there is something about classic cars that is intrinsically more interesting than a new one”, and each car is unique with an understated gracefulness – “moving with the charm of a grand old dame rather than the loitering teenager”.

Such gracious traditional cars generally come out when the weather is nice enough to show them off in their full glory. There is no point investing all that money in a vintage car just to expose it to bad weather conditions that will rust the beauty away – keeping it tucked away in a garage over the winter means it will be ready for action in the summer.

Apparently a Portuguese car owner took ‘keeping it tucked away’ to a whole new level, when 180 cars were found in a warehouse in Lisbon, Portugal. According to CarCarCompany.com, “the owner of the cars was a car dealer in the 1970′s and 1980′s and decided to save the more interesting cars that came through his doors”- but apparently forgot about them, so that’s where they stayed gathering dust for over 15 years!

It has been reported that the long-forgotten warehouse revealed a stunning collection of European classics, including rare models of Jaguar, Porsche, Alfa Romeo, Lotus, Mercedes and Austin Minis, which appear to be in a salvageable condition – the exterior might need a brush up but I bet the interior is flawless and untouched by the dirt.

This overlooked dusty warehouse, containing many classic gems, sounds like the perfect opportunity for American Dirty Car Artist Scott Wade to show off his artistic skill of transforming dirt covered cars into fascinating pieces of art, achieving what dirtycarart.com describes as “amazing detailed shaded drawings”- but for us classic enthusiasts we want to know what the future holds for these rescued wonders.

Imagine moving into an empty farm house that has been vacant for over 15 years only to stumble upon a barn welded shut that quite frankly looked like an eyesore – only to find it was bursting with classic cars.

The saying goes ‘curiosity killed the cat’, but in this case curiosity revealed a rare collection of vintage vehicles, which according to CuriousType.com, are valued at just over $ 35 million – maybe curiosity isn’t such a bad thing?

Austin, TX (PRWEB) July 18, 2014

SeatMe, a leading provider of online restaurant reservation systems and front of house management software that help restaurants fill more tables, announced today that Olamaie selected SeatMe for a complete restaurant management and online reservations solution. The team at Olamaie will be using SeatMe to take reservations immediately, as they host a series of pop-up dinners while construction continues on their permanent restaurant home. Olamaie picked SeatMe, in part, for its low cost, easy setup and highly responsive support. In fact, Olamaies sign up process was just a few minutes between becoming a customer and accepting online reservations.

Olamaie first heard about SeatMe through Oxheart, another SeatMe customer based in Texas. For acclaimed restaurants like Oxheart, and ones certain to be like Olamaie, SeatMe is a natural fit: these restaurants enjoy a high volume of traffic on their own, and paying per-cover fees as they would with services like OpenTable and its competitors just does not make business sense. SeatMe also offers the ability to take credit card holds for reservations, and allows restaurants to host prepaid restaurant events, which are features designed primarily for popular restaurants like Oxheart and Olamaie.

SeatMe offers restaurants a variety of services as part of a complete front of house management solution. In addition to accepting online reservations via the restaurant reservation program, SeatMe restaurants can confirm those reservations via text message, freeing up time at the host stand. Whats more, those guests are instantly added to the restaurant guest book, where they can track dining history, preferences, allergies, special occasions, and more. For walk-in guests, SeatMe allows hosts to text those diners when their tables are ready, a low-cost alternative to restaurant pagers and buzzers, which can get costly. Smaller restaurants that dont have the resources to build their own mobile websites can use SeatMes free mobile restaurant website service as well, which allows diners to book reservations easily from their phones.

Part of the reason the setup process was so seamless for Olamaie was that, with SeatMe, all the restaurant’s team needs is Web access to manage their restaurant from anywhere, and from as many places as theyd like, from virtually any device. Theres also an iPad application designed for seamless host stand usage. There are no additional fees for accessing the reservation books from multiple places. Theres also a fourteen-day free trial period for restaurants to try the system, with no credit card required (though a credit card is required to begin accepting online reservations).

“Were excited to help facilitate online reservations for Olamaie during their exciting launch,” said Alexander Kvamme, SeatMes Founder and CEO. “Restaurants like Olamaie fit the SeatMe profile perfectly — theyre popular, and theyre savvy.” Via the restaurants recent press release: “When I moved out of Austin to continue my training, my heart stayed here,” said Co-Executive Chef Fojtasek. “Now I’m back with a team of unbelievably thoughtful and talented folks doing food that has been a lifelong passion.” Olamaie will fill the Southern cuisine void with a menu that focuses on farm-to-table freshness and a dining experience that combines classic southern hospitality with modern restaurant craftsmanship. Until the opening this winter, Olamaie will host multiple pop-up dinners across Texas, beginning at Lenoir on August 6-10, to represent what they endeavor to do.
