Japanese Classics of VA goes to Winterfest 2015

A while back my friend Mitchell got this idea to start a group for our favorite type of car: old Japanese cars. We've had a few events so far, a parking lot meet as well as a couple cruises through the mountains, but this was the first big "show" we've been to as a coherent unit. » 3/10/15 3:15pm 3/10/15 3:15pm

I Took Too Many Photos At Luftgekühlt 2

Some days are just better than others, that's how life works. For example, this past Saturday I went to a Ferrari Club of America cruise in at the Petersen Automotive Museum and it was ok. Ferrari's are neat cars that have a rich heritage but they have always felt a bit alien to me. In my experience Ferrari owners… » 3/03/15 10:00am 3/03/15 10:00am

Want a More Interesting Life?

"I learned to drive in a Triumph TR3A. My next door neighbor was a WWII vet who bought the car new in 1959. He never put the top up because "tops are for sissies." Seeing him roar off in a light snow squall with his scarf flapping jauntily was inspiring." » 1/26/15 5:07pm 1/26/15 5:07pm

Watch As Hot Welding Sparks Dance Around Like Marbles

1968 Mercury Montego - ADVERTISEMENTS

I wish I was in Automotive Advertising all the way back in the 60's so I could have worked on some of these. Thankfully I was able to actually work on Advertising for Mercury before the brand was shut down, I tragically even worked on some of their "fade out" projects, aka Mercury Sunset. I like to think of myself as… » 9/11/14 10:31am 9/11/14 10:31am
