Tom Cruise made some legendary films in the '80s with Don Simpson and Jerry Bruckheimer. Days of Thunder pulls from Top Gun and The Color of Money to create a story about a stock-car driver who has tons of potential but no sense of putting it to use. This film faces its challenges but overall paints a picture of what we all would hope life as a NASCAR driver would be like.

Jaguar E-Type Lightweight Recreated

Jaguar E-Type Lightweight Recreated

By Petrolicious Productions / 17 Dec 2013 / 15 Comments Read More

Recreating a factory race car from the 1960s is no simple task—for Jason Len and his 1964 Jaguar E-Type, the challenges were no different. The hours and materials to build something of this magnitude far exceed any dollar amount that could be recouped from the finished car's sale, but this is irrelevant for Jason. To him, the idea of owning and recreating this car is simply about chasing a dream. He devoted his life to Jaguars, so when it came to deciding whether or not to build the car, there was no other choice that could be made.

It's not often that we see a vintage Country Squire that isn't rattly and battered, but now and then, we'll see one that has been cared for very well over the years. In these moments we appreciate the beauty in this: that a classic car, even if it's not the most expensive, the most class, or the most popular, can still be a thing of beauty and history if it's treated with care and respect.
