Blip!

I’m a big fan of the sleek, rear-engined Fiat 850 Spider, and while I know it’s a small car, something about this picture makes it seem really, really small. I think that something is that I can’t stop imagining that those people are trying to read the license plate of the car in front of […]

Uhhh…what’s going here? Who is Vauxhall targeting in this ad? The demographic of women in mustard pantsuits who like barefoot walks in the desert with their rifles? Women 20 to 35 who occasionally commit murder, have a need to hide bodies, and reject footwear? I mean, the Vauxhall Viva isn’t a bad choice for either,…Read […]

I was off Friday judging a LeMons race, but I’m back, ready to fall back into the damp, warm embrace of high-quality automotive content. Let’s start the week the best way possible— with an old Dutch truck. That sounds like a euphemism—give ‘em the old Dutch Truck! But mostly I like the name for this […]

The 1976 Rover 2200 SC had a special edition designed to corner the lucrative academic market that included a headliner-mounted Mortarboard Track that let a mortarboard-wearing academe slide in their distinctive hat for storage just by sitting in the car. Academic “Robe Guides” were integrated into the seats as well,…Read more… Continue Reading at https://jalopnik.com

I know most of you see an image like this and immediately think “oh no, not another glorification of mid-century kid/canine trunk fights” but I promise you that’s not what this is. This is a 1968 Simca ad deliberately made to re-habilitate the idea of kids and dogs enjoying trunks safely. Something Europe especially…Read more… […]

Man, Oldsmobile was going for some strange stuff with the 1969 442 W-30.

Man, Oldsmobile was going for some strange stuff with the 1969 442 W-30. It seems that they had created this Dr.Oldsmobile mad scientist character to imply that deeply strange, perhaps immoral experiments were crucial to the development of the car. The Dr.Oldsmobile character itself is pretty bizarre:Read more… Continue Reading at https://jalopnik.com

It’s a new week, everybody!

It’s a new week, everybody! I hope your weekends were as good as this trio, which appears to be Dr.Who and two sweater enthusiasts/fetishists enjoying a tall fire on the shores of what could be a much larger fire?

You did it again!

You did it again! Thanks to your iron will, you made it through another week like a champ. You remind me of a certain sort of person who really grabs life’s poodles and just manhandles the crap out of them, gripping two at a time under your arms, and flinging them into an Oldsmobile. Great […]

Remember when Oldsmobile was trying to corner the sophisticated, modern shepherd market? The Delta 88 was considered the pinnacle of the erudite shepherd’s whip, with its pillarless hardtop design ideal for grabbing and dragging an entire sheep into the car, in comfort.

One of may absolute favorite Hondas of all time has to be the 1300 coupe—it had amazing looks and it was technically incredible—it was Soichiro Honda’s last car he was really involved with, and Honda loved air-cooling, and here he pumped air through that engine like water. It was amazing. Also, as you can see […]
