Sipi is a fairy who hangs above us like a huge, ever-smiling, men’s fragrance-smelling umbrella. He can be called anytime, anywhere to lend a helping hand, and he’ll be there in an hour with one of his Transits for sure. A dangerously maniac car collector (the street in front of his house is full of his vehicles), a radio-control and model car freak, Sipos is a Swiss knife made of human flesh. Totalcar is just one job amongst his zillion occupations, but he endears it the most. Lives with a girlfriend and two dogs.

All the roads were closed but noone complained. This is how police escorted an ambulance transporting a baby to hospital in Gran Canaria.

Cops are not the most popular people around the world. But I am sure you would want to shake the hands and hug each motorcycle police officer in this video.

According to the video's description a newborn baby had to be rushed to the Children's Hospital in Gran Canaria in an ambulance from a distant helicopter landing site as the hospital's own helipad was closed due to financial reasons.

The normally ten-minute trip took only five minutes thanks to the perfectly coordinated officers of local police. Just look at how all the junctions and connecting roads are closed to minimize traffic, and the motorcycle officers of Las Palmas rush to clear the road in front of the ambulance speeding with all blue lights and sirens on. It's worth reading the notes on the screen to understand how great a job these cops did. 

The song played under the video is not everyone's favourite, but it suits the story perfectly: all for love.

Many would claim the Mk 2 was the best Golf Volkswagen has ever built. It was born in an era when reliability, simplicity and functionality ruled the world.
