This past week and weekend, my social media feeds were completely flooded with posts about Monterey Car Week. With literally all of the world’s fastest, most beautiful, and more exotic cars all descending upon the Monterey peninsula in California for a long weekend of incredible car shows, picturesque cruises, and vintage racing, I got to spend my weekend crying in my garage full of projects while all of my friends were living it up. If you found yourself unable to make it to Car Week as well, then I guess we’ll just have to relive the weekend vicariously through various image galleries together. Luckily, Jalopnik has one of the first big galleries I’ve seen from the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance and the surrounding parking lots. Classic Driver also has some solid coverage from The Quail Lodge event as well. And don’t forget to check out Petrolicious’ awesome coverage from the Monterey Historic races at Laguna Seca while you’re at it. […]

Hey, it’s two 1980’s Land Cruisers together! And they’re not even in a nondescript warehouse with a bunch of other old cars. That’s right, not one, but two contributors at Stanceworks have old Land Cruisers and just like MHCC, they have an FJ60 and an FJ62. And they take them on awesome adventures, just like we want to do with ours. This time, these two FJs hit the road and explore the twisty, rocky trails of Big Bear, CA. With a weekend full of cruising and camping in one of Mother Nature’s many playgrounds, what’s not to like? […]

Never before has a finer collection of beautiful British Racing Green cars crossed an auction block together. RM Sotheby’s is auctioning off an insane collection of hugely valuable and insanely gorgeous vintage Aston Martin race cars in Monterey, CA later this week. With a mix of cars ranging from the most-raced Aston Martin in the world (with over 650 races during the past 80+ years), to a gorgeous DB4 GT Prototype, to what very well might be the biggest auction of the whole weekend: the first DBR1 ever built, and the car that was driven to a number of victories by the likes of Sir Stirling Moss, Carroll Shelby, Jim Clark, and Bruce McLaren. Best yet, there are so many more beautiful Astons for sale and Petrolicious did a wonderful breakdown of all of them and why they’re important. […]

Auto Lieben – A Celebration of German Cars

By | 2017-08-01T12:58:47+00:00 August 1st, 2017|Events|0 Comments

This past Sunday, we brought out a couple of our favorite Heritage cars – the ’87 Porsche 911 and a the bright orange VW Thing – to Auto Lieben at Afton Alps. What is Auto Lieben? Well, it’s a car show that celebrates German engineering from Mercedes-Benz, Audi, BMW, and Porsche, as well as a curated collection of vintage Volkswagens. Although it’s easy to see why modern cars like the Audi R8 V10 Plus, Porsche 911 Turbo S, or Mercedes-AMG GT would steal the show, it was cars like the Carrera GT, the BMW Z1 from the early 1990s, and the Mercedes 280SL Pagoda that stole our hearts. In its third year running, it was blessed with beautiful, warm summer weather and we’re looking forward to going back again next year. Until then, have a look at our photo gallery to see what you might’ve missed if you weren’t there. […]

Lap Around the Web – July 31st

I’ve always had a soft spot for the AMC Javelin. Straight from the factory, they had an awesome, hunkered down stance that looked the business. Even better still, was the Mark Donohue’s Penske Javelin Trans-Am car that he campaigned in 1971. It’s lower, covered in a gorgeous and patriotic red, white, and blue livery, and completely stripped out. The fine lads at Stanceworks saw this rad ride recently and I’m thankful they’re sharing the pictures. This thing is just dripping with subtle aggression, especially when you see the tachometer that redlines at 9300 RPM. […]
