In much of the U.S., today is a holiday in advance of the 4th of July, and we’ll be hitting the open road in search of, well, something fun to do this weekend. Being the old advertisement junkies that we are, a quick browse through our archives shows that the world of travel seemed much more simple back in the day.

What’s life like at the helm of a vintage boat? You answered in kind, sharing a number of stories, photos, and links that have inspired us to add a few new events to our summer calendar. From stories of motoring along in a vintage wooden boat to a teenager’s unexpected day out in a Riva, there’s plenty of inspiration for taking the plunge, so to speak—better start making friends at the marina.

A twisting road is like home to a sports car, but it’s not often you’re able to capture the feeling of pushing yourself and your machine through a challenging series of turns. For this week’s Instagram roundup, these nine photographers have figured out how to put us in the middle of the action, be it flying through a corner or stopping during a road trip.
From Skodas to Porsches, there’s something for everyone.
