Mr. Matthew Swaggart "traveled the world, capturing stories of humanity’s highs and lows. I always disliked the bulky and militaristic style of today's photographer's gear. And after years of creeping back pain, I became intolerant of its poor function. I determined to create a brand that blended the elegant styles of yesterday with unsurpassed modern functionality."

The stunning photos and lush production quality from Coachbuilt Press of The Art and Colour of General Motors elevate the book way above the usual pictorial titles from other automotive publishers, and recent events aside, there can be little argument that GM has made significant contributions to the world of automotive design.

Earlier this month, we featured Mr. Antoine Gaslais's work and received such as great response that we reached out to find out more about this Parisian-based artist and classic car enthusiast. He obviously keeps very busy, but he says that his most important current job is working on his car, "because it is my favorite subject.

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.

Book Review: The Bikeriders

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.

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).

The Hardest Working Man in the Car Photo Business

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.

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.
