Exquisite Autodromo Stradale Marks a New Chapter

Autodromo’s newest design is inspired by the dash gauges found on Italian sports cars of the late 1950s, and features a multi-layered dial. Beneath the domed sapphire crystal, the hour indexes are applied to a transparent glass ring, which floats over the colored dial for a three-dimensional effect. The custom designed leather strap references the luxurious automotive interiors of the time.

Driven by Design: Italdesign Aztec

Upon seeing an Italdesign Aztec, the first thing you notice is the split passenger compartment, and the passenger even gets a wheel like the driver’s steering wheel (it is actually a control console, not a true steering wheel)! Additionally, due to the separated compartments, communication was via electronic connection rather than simply verbal...

Book Review: The Bikeriders

By Petrolicious Productions / 18 Sep 2014

Using vignettes, The Bikeriders provides glimpses into a romantic, violent world where the era's common social conventions were replaced by codes no less strictly enforced. The themes contained now border on cliché: fights, women, booze, and of course motorcycles; however, this is a primary source documented by a member, not a novelist imagining escapades.

This Local Garage is Home to World-Class Craftsmen

Take, for instance, Mr. Steve Hogue's shop in Torrance, California. Housed in a nondescript industrial area of the city and with space for only a dozen cars, the garage appears at first glance to be one of the many small-scale body shops that populate the local streets. Wander inside, however, and you’ll find yourself standing next to an original Cobra...

We recently ran the Hakone Skyline with a Nissan PCG10 Skyline GT, Toyota AE86 Trueno, Honda S800M Coupe, and a Nissan R35 GT-R. Each run around the Fuji Five Lakes is peppered with postcard views of the mirror-surfaced lakes, Fuji-san in the distance, and, with luck, the equally mountainous roads to Moose Hills hamburger for lunch, all before sprinting back to Tokyo.

There are literally no motorcycle jackets as iconic as a Belstaff. And it is with good reason: they are both functionally superior, combining road armor with weather protection, and classically stylish. Their rugged tailoring, durability, and lack of pretense made them the preferred jacket of icons like Mr. Steve McQueen and Mr. T.E. Lawrence (Lawrence of Arabia).

I have this old English car thing. There is no cure or twelve-step program. The only therapy is a constant flow of rusted English steel and cracked fiberglass. I’m convinced it was Dad’s fault.
