I can always get hyped on the McLaren F1. To this day, it’s still my all-time favorite car and when it was new, it had more in common with an alien spacecraft than just about any other car on the market at the time. And maybe that’s why I’m so excited that there’s still a brand-new, as-delivered 1997 McLaren F1 out there with just 138 miles on the odometer. Sure, when it’s a shame that it’s never been driven because it’s an icon amongst analog supercars, but for whoever is looking to cash in, selling this pristine machine is likely to net them more profit than I can ever hope to make over the course of my adult life. If you have the means and are shopping for the perfect McLaren F1, here’s your opportunity. […]

As most of you reading this might’ve noticed if you weren’t living under a rock for the last couple months, there was a rare total solar eclipse in August. While many people jumped on the bandwagon in the months or weeks leading up to the eclipse, some people (mostly astronomers or nerdy photographers) had been planning to view the event for years. Sam Bendall, for instance, had been looking forward to the eclipse for close to a decade and had been planning his ideal way of viewing the eclipse when the time came. Luckily, as the time approached, his schedule cleared to allow him to make a once in a lifetime journey from California to Oregon on his motorcycle where he enjoyed over 1500 miles of beautiful roads over the course of 4 days. His story is both interesting and awe-inspiring and will make you long for a similar opportunity. […]

Leave it to the Goodwood Revival to bring everyone back to the heyday of Formula 1. Last weekend, a killer assortment of some of the most beautiful Formula cars ever assembled took to a soggy track to duke it out for bragging rights. Petrolicious was there to capture all the action as these flyweight cars ripped around the circuit. Not only was the racing period correct, but so was the event, with nostalgic costumes and events that harked back to a simpler time. Although famous drivers like Fangio and Brabham are long gone from the racing scene, it’s incredible to see their cars still being driven in anger. […]

The Jaguar D-Type is arguably one of the most beautiful, and certainly one of the most valuable, cars that Great Britain has ever produced. That’s why it was such a treat to see so many of them racing at the Goodwood Revival this past weekend. As a photographer, I’m sure it would be a treat to shoot one of these amazing cars sitting in the paddock but could you imagine how cool and exciting it would be to actually ride along in one around the track, hanging out the side over that glorious side-exit exhaust and snap rolling photos of multiple other D-Types as they follow you around the track?! That’s some serious bucket list level stuff right there, and luckily, someone from Classic Driver had the opportunity to make my dream become their reality this past weekend at the Goodwood Revival. And if for some reason Jaguar D-Types don’t get your heart racing, they’ve got plenty of other coverage from the event here, here, and here. […]

When most people think about modifying trucks, they don’t usually think of commercial trucks or even car haulers. This, however, is simply too cool to ignore. Say hello to the “Baller Hauler”, designed and created by Miles Shinneman. What started off as an Isuzu NPR box truck has now been converted into a pretty badass car hauler with the help of tons of rat-rod-ish bodywork and a custom articulating ramp to accommodate even the lowest of cars. Power is now provided by a Chevy 6.0-liter Vortec V8 and an onboard 9,000-lb winch helps load just about any car in a snap. This is one of those projects that goes beyond just having a certain look and I’d argue that this build is definitely cooler than the sum of its parts might have you believe. Heck, it’s not even done yet! There’s still more body and paint work to be done as well as swapping out those 22″ semi truck wheels to even more ridiculous 24-inchers. This is one build that is definitely worth keeping an eye on! […]

Because I’m still living vicariously through everyone who was in Monterey Car Week a couple weekends ago, it only seemed fair to share a few more galleries and articles that popped up in the past week. One of the best I’ve seen was from Classic Driver with all of their favorite cars from the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. Road & Track created two awesome photo sets highlighting the most beautiful cars to roll onto the fairway at Pebble Beach while the other photo set shares all of the most interesting cars to be raced in anger over at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca. Road & Track also took time over Car Week to interview two motor racing legends: Sir Jackie Stewart and Tom Kristensen. Petrolicious also shared a handful of awesome galleries and articles from a few of the events they covered during the week as well. […]

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. […]

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. […]
