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.

Last week's Land Rover/Belstaff video caused a bit of a stir because the word truck was used to describe the vehicle. Even here in the office, we had a lively debate with some purists insisting that a Land Rover isn't a truck. Which is just silly...

Pav stashed his camera and announced that he needed to wash Pismo Beach’s salt water from the Land Rover’s undercarriage. Wyatt quickly hopped in and did his best to hold on as Pav splashed into the river and sent water spraying up around the truck. With trains roaring past on the tracks above, Pav skidded and drifted across the wet concrete, giving his beloved Land Rover a much-needed bath.

Before the mass-media age exploded in the late 1950s, advertising was much more limited in its reach. Tourism destinations relied mostly on magazines and radio. But even then, smaller resorts and hotels were limited in their budgets and reach. Hence they couldn't easily reach those who might be inclined to travel.

September 5th is almost upon us, and we’ve collected over 60,000 signatures to start the process to repeal the ban on non-conforming cars and trucks. These are vehicles that are sold elsewhere in the world, but for whatever reason weren’t sold here when they were originally made. In short, that means they can’t legally be driven here in the USA until they are 25-years old...

The Lamborghini 350GTV prototype, shown in October of 1963, had provoked ambiguous responses from the press and public, so in the following five months it was also reengineered en route to becoming the 350GT. The young engineer Gian Paolo Dallara and his top assistant, Paolo Stanzani, who had been working with a shoestring budget, tested their revised V-12...

In the morning they ask me if I can return another time for the car. They know the answer and the son says he'll sort it out. It's a long day so I go down to Lake Como and remember why everyone wants to be Italian. The son gives me a load of Swiss bank account numbers and I get on the case. All we need is the export paperwork. Another sleepless night but dinner is even better by Lake Como.

We typically feature vehicles with four wheels here in the Market Finds section, but that doesn't mean a machine with two (or three) will keep you from driving any less tastefully. Especially if it's a classic Indian motorcycle. This 1926 Scout Junior can even allow a passenger to ride tastefully in its sidecar.

We had a blast driving around the outskirts of Bombay shooting the workhorse–putting her through her paces just as she was meant to be. The alacrity with which the Land Rover performs sixty-five years after conception still amazes us, the stiff ride clearly set up for rural roads, or the lack of them.
