I know that many purists are against the mods, still I decided to give it a personal touch and for all the modifications I have used new parts in order to preserve the originals and have the ability to return the car to its original state whenever I decide to. More than anything else, I love driving it on summer evenings through the city with very low traffic while the sun sets.

A First-Timer's Pilgrimage to Laguna Seca

Full caveat, I've never been to Monterey Car Week. Nor, before this last week, to Laguna Seca. I realize this is a blot against my credentials as a lover of all things automotive, but I'm quite pleased to have scratched the event off my bucket list.

Pebble Beach's Best in Show Winner Represents a Monumental Shift

By Yoav Gilad / 22 Aug 2014 / 8 Comments Read More

In many ways, this year’s Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance was just like every year prior. The blue-blazer-wearing, straw-hatted crowd strolled in as classical music gently wafted over the audience and manicured lawn. The OEMs occupied the lower-level suites in the lodge that allowed their guests to sit in style and avoid sullying their Tod’s. The coffee was warm and unburned, landscape foggy grey, and cars buffed to perfection...

The Marti Report on this Grabber Blue snake breaks it down into a variety of numbers. For instance, it was one of 3,054 Torino Cobras built in 1971 and one of 316 with the 429 cubic-inch Cobra Jet stuffed under the hood. However, this Ford's big V8 is anything but broken down...

When I was twenty-four I bought my first motorcycle: a 1972 Honda CB750. This bike did two things for me. It completely sold me on the quality and absolute value of a Honda motorcycle; they are absolutely bulletproof, beautiful, and reliable. Secondly, it hooked me on riding motorcycles for life.

The Sun Sets on a Classic Motoring Event

By Máté Boér / 20 Aug 2014 / 15 Comments Read More

Some say the track will be demolished soon to make way for a modern sport arena and this would imply the end of this event.
