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 has now truly set on the Velodrom Millenáris, if the rumors are true. 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.

This boxy Benz looks as if it can traverse any terrain in the world, but it has only covered 34,500 miles. That's due to its 14-year residence in a private vehicle collection. It comes as no surprise that its current owner states, "The bodywork on this G-Wagen is in excellent condition..."

Putting the M5 in for a service actually led me to the 318i. The mechanic I found was a senior member of the BMW Club in Brisbane and chatting with him one day he mentioned that he had to get rid of one of his cars because he'd bought a new X5. I didn't think much about it but when I decided to buy a daily-driver to commute to work, I called him, saw the car that weekend and bought it on site.

Last year, as I walked back to my car following the Pebble Beach Concours, having lost count of all the amazing cars I'd passed in the mulch-covered parking lots alone, it occurred to me that someone could easily spend the entirety of Monterey Car Week without attending a single event and still get their fill of an incredible range of cars.

The thing I love most about my Super Beetle, is that it fits me. I don’t just mean in a physical sense, but in a philosophical sense as well. On the physical side, I’ve built and modified everything to be just the way I want it. It feels right, like getting into your favourite pair of jeans, and I can’t think of anything else I’d rather climb into on a daily basis.

The CX would ultimately have a Coefficient of Drag of 0.29 (lower is better) when the typical American cars of the time would be in the range of 0.45-0.50. Indeed, its moniker “CX” is the French acronym for coefficient of air resistance.
