Then I called my dad.

Singapore-based online print shop Ugly Moto features highly detailed and beautiful motorcycle prints. Our favorite of the six features a Harley-Davidson XR750—the one Cal Rayborn rode in his 1972 Transatlantic Match Race, where against the odds with an unreliable model and on a track he'd never ridden, he won three of the six races and changed the British perception of American riders.

As a youngster pumping high-octane gasoline for local muscle car owners in Southern California’s San Gabriel Valley during the 1960s, Mark Lundquist could only dream of owning a 1965 Chevrolet Malibu Super Sport (SS). As if to make up for lost time, however, Mark now has four Chevy SS cars (as well as a beastly “standard” 1968 Camaro) of varying vintages parked in a Joshua Tree, California, garage that inspires envy in every guest who drops in. And yes, this collection includes a ’65 Malibu SS.

The Designer's Story: Bill Mitchell

Unlike the other ‘Designer’s Story’ features I’ve recently written for Petrolicious, this is a much more American tale. Bill Mitchell spent the entirety of his 42-year career in automobile design at General Motors and is ultimately responsible for creating and influencing the design of over 72.5 million automobiles produced by GM, including such landmark vehicles as the 1949 Cadillac Coupe DeVille, the 1955-57 Chevrolet Bel Air, the 1963-65 and 1966-67 Buick Riviera, the 1961-76 Corvette Stingray, and more.

I can’t explain it—it just happens. And I bet it happens to a lot of you. I am speaking about the "slippery slope," a fallacious argument that hypothesizes that a tiny first step leads to a chain of related events culminating into something much bigger.
