Some, like the Autozam, were Jalopnik favorites. Others though? I genuinely had no idea what they were as I’d never seen nor heard of them before. Especially the little French cars. Bonus points if you can help identify any of them.
For the Dorito enthusiast: a watch for your local RX meet. It’s even a chrono!
Not bad! Exactly triple what the Q gets no matter how hard you try...
Yep, that’s exactly what you think it is. An eighties S Class with the top hacked off by an obscure Swiss coachbuilder. Per the seller: “This car is a great investment can’t be used for mover studios or weddings or photo shoots.is a one of a kind. Has lots of class.” In 2009, Jalopnik ran a story about the Dutch royal…
“Sinkole swallows car in St. Louis, owner thought it was towed.”
Great color, and most importantly, it hasn’t been ruined with torque thrusts. Muscle car guys: what year is this and what motor is in it if it’s real?
Yes - believe it or not - this heap is registered, insured, and inspected. The interior has been partially redone (hides only) and the tires are new. The engine has also been refreshed. The body however is totally roached! I hope the owner plans on keeping it this way as the patina is truly epic. I was shocked when I…
Foot wide tires in the back, a front end “treatment” from the twenties, and the back end of an Infiniti FX35 welded on to the rear:
What a pair.
I have so many questions. How did this get here? Did they change it inside the garage? Look at the state of the rim and tire - how long was this person driving on the popped donut?! My hypothesis:
The ST twins reign supreme. ‘MURICA
Because variety is the spice of life. At these single make/model events the parking lot is usually the highlight of the show. Corvettes? Meh. An Alpha tuned 1000HP GTR in a great color though? Pretty cool.
AKA my first attempt at racetrack photography. Critiques encouraged. These were taken with a telephoto on a Canon Rebel XSI. It was a clear day so I had to crank the exposure way down. The motion blur shots were done at 1/30 shutter speed and the rest were at 1/2500. Zero post processing.
After spending the entire day here surrounded by more Porsches than I’ve ever seen in one place. Not my photo, I’ll upload those ASAP.
This is why I never wash my car; no garage, no point.
Spotted in a video. Setting: Sicily. It looks extremely weird and I need to see the whole thing/its interior. EDIT: Solved, Oppo is just the best. It’s a Lancia Ypsilon, unbelievably strange int. and ext. pix after the jump:
I’m gonna have to go with the CLK, which looks best in black series trim as seen here. The overall design has aged pretty well, and I think it wears the vintage Merc esque “dual” headlights better than anything else they tried that on during this era, including the SL Tavarish has been fawning over lately.
It was small show that packed a big punch, from vintage Rollers and Bentleys, to an original 289 Cobra with Shelby’s signature on the glovebox (hiding on the right in this photo) and even a Morris Minor Woodie. Instead of the usual 3/4 angle spamming, I focused on capturing the details of the most interesting cars at…
All the way down to their massive old school receipts. Since they buy out indie places like“B&R Automotive Parts” in this case, the stores have way more charcter. For ex. the “50 Filler Necks!!!!!!!” ad copy on the bottom left.
Not just one, but TWO Paganis showed up. The craftsmanship and engineering that goes into building these cars is incredible. They’re jaw dropping in person. Detail shots of the Zonda S and green carbon Huayra BC after the jump:
