Buy an Acura NSX and Then Test-Drive It (4 of 4)

By Yoav Gilad / 7 Nov 2014 / 17 Comments Read More

I entered a tight right-hander and downshifted back to second as I swung the NSX towards the inside of the curve. And back onto the gas as the road straightened. Here on my own, I was more comfortable pushing the Acura than when my wife was riding shotgun. And the NSX obliged. I realized that I was dangerously close to being late. Now I had a real incentive to mash it.

Where Forty-Year Old Peugeots Are Still Hot Stuff

Where Forty-Year Old Peugeots Are Still Hot Stuff

I found myself behind a new Peugeot–a 505 GTi–loaded with a huge rice bag under the open trunk, and wheel angles more extreme than a racing wheelchair's. Alignment what? Since I’m a sucker for French culture and grew up in the capital of perfection, Stockholm, I immediately fell in love with the non-regulated way of using these old French funky cars.

Journees d'Automne Is a Favorite Event

Journees d'Automne Is a Favorite Event

By Petrolicious Productions / 5 Nov 2014 / 8 Comments Read More

In my travels I’ve been to many great classic car events, including the Goodwood Revival, Le Mans Classic, and the behemoth that is Monterey car-week. I love all of those events as each, in there own way, brings something unique to the classic car hobby. However I think my favourite event of all is the much smaller, more intimate Journées d’Automne (Autumn Days).

In order to avoid incriminating myself, I’m going to have to speak very generally about locations and routes so I hope you’ll forgive me. The following takes place in the plains, hills, canyons, and gulleys between Austin and Santa Fe. The speeds achieved were in no small part due to excellent sight lines as there is a relative lack of vegetation in this region.

A French Weekend With My Husband's Daytona Mistress

A French Weekend With My Husband's Daytona Mistress

By Petrolicious Productions / 30 Oct 2014 / 11 Comments Read More

I have just returned from a quick weekend in France with my husband and his mistress. I know what you must be thinking, but I do rather like her. Although she’s loud (and I hate her perfume), she’s undoubtedly beautiful (stunning really) and being with her inevitably makes us the centre of attention–whether we want it or not...

What had I just done? The money was sent and gone. Last time, my research had been far more thorough and my actions much less impulsive. I was hooked before I read the end of the ad's second paragraph, but the fact that the seller was seemingly so forthcoming inspired confidence. Oh, and did I mention the car was across the US in Atlanta, Georgia?

There are a few ways to attend the Goodwood Revival, whether in full period regalia or just showing up without honoring the classic nature of the event or in varying degrees somewhere in between. But the most stylish way to attend is on the heels of a multi-day run in your own classic ride.

Walking up from London Bridge tube, it would have been rather impressive for me to have missed the hoards of motorcycles, engines purring, rolling into Borough Market. The underlying growl of over 600 motorcycles arriving could be heard over the usual sounds of the morning London traffic. I had to be careful not to catch myself on various handlebars sticking precariously out into the narrow-formed gangways.

At the BMW Museum the exhibition doesn't begin in the building, but on a small plaza out front because there's always some action taking place, whether it's a check-point for a classic rally or some car from the collection is basking in the sun. Moreover, when you finally enter to purchase a ticket, it only becomes more impressive because standing guard is the legendary 1972 BMW E25 Turbo, designed for the 1972 Munich Olympics by Mr. Paul Bracq.
