Which Motorsport Offers the Best Drivers?

Which Motorsport Offers the Best Drivers?

For me there is one answer: Formula One. I grew up watching NASCAR and, once a year (Memorial Day), Cart or IRL or whatever open-wheel racing is called in the US this week. And so when I first encountered Formula One, I was blown away–"you mean cars car turn right too?!" It was an epiphany to say the least.

How Far Would You Go?

How Far Would You Go?

How far would you go? We're not talking about miles or kilometers here… What happens when a Petrolista finds his dream girl and decides to marry her? A rehearsal dinner and wedding that includes mementos to his love of cars, that’s what. But is it appropriate to shoehorn your car or love for cars into a party or event? I, for one, think it could be if done tastefully...

Ski Season is Here! Let's Hit the Slopes!

Let’s hit the slopes! Right now, Arctic air is rushing down the Canadian Rockies towards the American Midwest and East. This is good news because if you have an alpine fixation like us, you probably can’t wait until the unofficial start of winter and ski season. However, depending on where you live, or where you’re willing to travel, November 27th, Thanksgiving day, marks ski season's opening.

Why Did You Buy a Classic Car?

Why Did You Buy a Classic Car?

I suspect that most people, like me, buy cars to enjoy them and don't really care about a particular car's history (unless it's truly special), but that begs the question–why buy a classic when new cars are pound-for-pound better in every quantifiable way?

As Thanksgiving, winter break, and the holidays approach many people will be forced to fly and we all know how cruel and uncomfortable flying is. In virtually every case, crossing vast distances and harsh weather make it a necessary evil. But years ago, not only was it cool, it was also comfortable and elegant.

It was an Indian summer in Washington DC and over one hundred degrees Fahrenheit outside. I hit the Beltway, which was at a virtual stand-still and crawled along averaging about eight mph. My commute was about twenty miles. Then it got worse—the Pontiac’s engine block thermostat failed shut. What could I do?...

In a time when a physical product was the norm, album art was just that – art. These imaginative creations, constrained to a fairly universal square canvas, gave the listener some sense of the personality that lay inside. Browse through, take in the essence of the era, and allow your mind to travel back to a period when you went out and bought your first album, in an actual store.

What matters more, form or function?

What matters more, form or function?

I'd argue that some cars more about form than they are about function, sacrificing the latter in honor of the former.
