Before Driving One, Familiarize Yourself with the First Skyline

Before the 600hp monster that is the Nissan GT-R NISMO, the R32, the Hakosuka, even before Nissan and Prince merged, came the Prince Skyline in 1957. It sported a lowly 1.5L 60hp engine and looked to all the world like a slimmed-down General Motors knock-off. But in spite of its derivative appearance it showcased Japanese manufacturing prowess to the world...

While we're well-acquainted with Goodwood and Silverstone, the Salon Privé is rapidly gaining in popularity. It is held on a picturesque estate at Syon House, Brentford, which provides an excellent surrounding atmosphere. The show's overall feel is much different to most as it's a relaxing event, one can happily wander around the gardens with a glass of Pommery champagne while seeing and hearing some of the rarest cars on earth–not a bad way to spend a day.

Elite Was Chosen for "Complete Rebuild"

Elite Was Chosen for

By Petrolicious Productions / 11 Sep 2014

This particular Elite has a legitimacy all its own. The seller states, "[I] purchased [it] from the second owner in 1984. I know both previous owners and have known the car since new." He or she also states that this numbers-matching coupe comes with "many old receipts and correspondence."

Unbelievably, walking into the cavernous garage revealed seven (!) 959s, Canepa's personal McLaren P1, Outlaw 356s, a Maserati Birdcage, and a Porsche 917. The facilities are extensive and include countless jigs for full racecar rebuilds. What was the best part? The car wall. Oh, you don't have a car wall?

My father was a race car driver and could race anything on four wheels, I think that's how I learned my love for cars. Since then, I haven't looked back. This is my fifth Mini and I bought it from a man about to begin a full rebuild. But the car had no rust at all and the chassis numbers are intact on the floor! So I bought it. I just love the classic look, history, handling, sound, and usability of the car.

Earlier today, Ferrari Chairman Luca Cordero di Montezemolo stepped down from his position leaving Fiat Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne to run the business. Montezemolo’s departure isn’t terribly shocking given his background (he resurrected Scuderia Ferrari after Mr. Enzo Ferrari’s passing in 1988) and the Scuderia’s poor Formula One results this season...

We've been big fans of Pawel's work for a long time and the video presented the perfect opportunity for us to sit down with him and find out more about him. He began as a photo assistant a while back and since then has shot over two-hundred cars a year (frequently over three hundred) for the last ten years. It's not hyperbole when we say that he has literally shot thousands of cars.

I enjoy the satisfaction and happiness others get when seeing and asking questions about the car. I routinely get a “thumbs up” from other drivers on the road and many want me to roll down the window, just to ask about the car. When I drive the car, I feel like I’m back in time, to the year 1967. It’s a feeling one just can’t get driving a modern day car.

There are certain cars that define a place and time. Cars that are so part of the culture that they helped to define it. The Mini is one of them. But why is that? Well, as Mr. Sumner Norman explains, it's because the Mini was ubiquitous–everyone bought one, be it moms shopping for groceries or international recording stars like the Beatles who recognized its universal appeal.
