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.

Tag! You're It, Go Travel!

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.

Long, Silver Jaguar Looking for New Owner

This long-wheelbase XJ6 seems to have had the sort of treatment in keeping with a vehicle of its significance as it's been garaged and "obsessively and professionally maintained." It features a "new [rebuilt] front end, brakes, [and] transmission," as well as original maintenance records.

Last Chance to Pass the Petition, Sign It Today!

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 These are vehicles that are sold elsewhere in the world, but for whatever reason weren’t sold here when they were originally made.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...

Lamborghini 350GT is Refined Beauty

By Ronald Ahrens / 4 Sep 2014 / 5 Comments Read More

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.

The seller of the Land Cruiser you see here states that it's a "survivor that hasn't been abused." In fact, this forty-one-year-old rig has been cared for by its previous owner and, courtesy of the present titleholder, a Toyota dealership. The former personally rebuilt this truck's 2F engine.

On any given day, Pav can be found shooting anything from a 1932 Daimler Double-Six in one corner of the United States to a Jaguar D-Type on the opposite side of the continent. If he’s at home in California, however, odds are you’ll find Pav in the seat of a ride defined by its simplicity: his 1973 Land Rover Series III.

Last week we asked about movies, and many, including the top three, had to do with racing. And it got me thinking about who the greatest racer of all time is. Certainly some have more wins than others and everyone has their favorites whether due to on-track heroism or off-track attitude, not that those two attributes are mutually exclusive...

In late July, I was lucky enough to witness classic car racing for the first time. The Silverstone Classic is a massive gathering of classic car lovers from around the UK, and I don't think there's a better introduction to the spectacle of vintage metal anywhere else in the world.

Belstaff and Aston Martin are a Sublime Pairing

Belstaff and Aston Martin are a Sublime Pairing

By Petrolicious Productions / 29 Aug 2014

We can't imagine a more appropriate match for classic British motoring than Belstaff's signature hand-waxed leather jacket, itself derived from Belstaff's storied involvement with motorcycling, and their jeans sewn from soft Japanese denim. In fact, the same philosophy behind Aston Martin's hand-built manufacturing techniques, are behind Belstaff's approach to making timeless clothing.

It can’t exactly be said that Aston Martin was seeking a lift when it announced the DB6 at the 1965 London Motor Show. Rather, it was a relief from lift of the aerodynamic kind that figured as a raison d’être for the new car. The outgoing DB5 was a rollicking automobile, not to mention its stature as a screen star, being James Bond’s equivalent of the Lone Ranger’s Silver.

Several words come to mind when thinking of Ferraris. "Beautiful," "fast," and "amazing" are a few of them. "Gap-filler" is not on that list. However, the 330 GTC debuted as one at the 1966 Geneva Auto Show. It bridged the space between the 275 GTB Berlinetta and the 330 2+2 Coupe.
