Everyone has their Bond. The one who drank those terrible shaken martinis [Shaking waters down the drink by melting more ice than stirring. That’s why you stir.] when they were a kid. For me, that was Roger Moore. He’s who I think of when I think of James Bond. And, the pinnacle of his run as far as I’m concerned is …
The San Gabriel Valley Porsche club had their Concours D’Elegance in Pasadena yesterday. Thanks to an early morning alert via The Netherlands, I got there in time to snap a bunch of pictures. Some nice cars if you’re a fan of these things.
My mom loves fast cars, like any good mom should. She was also a huge Magnum P.I. fan, so when I was in junior high, my dad bought her a Ferrari 308 GTSi. I always thought it was a ‘79, but it must have been an ‘80 because that was the first year with the fuel injection, apparently. We can’t seem to find a photo of…
is achievable if we all bought a Mitsubishi Minica Skipper.
Saw this handsome fella at a local shop the other day. The guy also had some Ferrari thing, but this was way cooler. There’s a plethora of Communist cars in my neighborhood. This, a Niva, a Volga, and even a UAZ. Thanks Trump!
This guy lives around the corner from me. It’s awesome. Shame about the grille, though. It’s also filled with garbage which is unfortunate. I had a B210 that I bought for $300 back in the early aughts. I loved that car. Slow as molasses and the guy I got it from weighed like 500 pounds, so the car leaned to the left…
Technically a BMW.
They apparently named this car after the answer someone gave to the designer when he asked, “how do you like it?” Cool graphics, though. It was the Portuguese Hummer, hence the name, hilariously. Peugeot diesel powered. The Pope rode in one once.
I happened to be near LAX today when a bunch of Porsches new and old passed me. I figured something must be going on, so I followed them to the LAX Hilton where this totally rad parts and literature show was going on. It was almost exclusively Porsche and VW stuff. Amazing old parts selling for ridiculous prices. And,…
1948 Panhard Dynavia. Kind of like if Dr. Seuss designed a car for Buck Rogers.
Time for the Le Car to get a new heart. The old motor was starting to sound like sleigh bells. And, yes, it I am going for something bigger. A 1.4 out of an ‘81! A whopping 62HP as opposed to the original motor’s 55. It’s going to be a rocket. I’m not really an LS swap kind of guy. I like to experience old cars as…
In honor of my birthday, here’s some Fuldamobils, the best car ever made.
Shorty Mustang by Google Street View.
Don’t party too too hard.
Part of the R-Design badge came off my C30 which I found really annoying, but it left this chrome, ghost badge that is actually kind of neat. It’s used to look like this.
Back in the day, every movie and show was a Robert Vaughn movie or show. Or, so it seemed.
