Sometimes a car as simple and as honest as an MG TA can get our attention. This one, with special outfitting by Tickford, had my eye and held my eye for a while. While it didn’t win any awards, it, in my opinion, deserved one nonetheless. Continue reading 1938 MG TA Tickford at the 2018 Greenwich Concours
Sometimes style is everything. In the age of Instagram, appearances are more important than ever and brands are having to make the appeal of their products more and more bold.
Land Rovers of old were boxy functional things, meant to go places other vehicles couldn’t. If you bought a Range Rover, that just meant you wanted to bring the comfort of your living room along with you to such remote locations.
My oh my, how the game has changed.
If you’re going to be shaggin’ in your wagon, why not make it a Rolls?
We’ve just returned from a fantastic weekend at the Greenwich Concours d’Elegance. We saw some amazing cars and had a few great drives as well.
There is a lot more to come from this weekend, so stay tuned. Here is a preview gallery to hold you over. Enjoy!
This elegant barchetta by Zagato is still my personal favorite modern Aston Martin. The wail of a naturally aspirated V12, operated via a manual gearbox, with the wind in your hair… it’s just about perfect!
Here are some highlights from the Cars and Caffe Season Opener. It’s a little late because I came down with a really nasty flu right after the show, so I’m playing a bit of catch up.
Enjoy this taste of much more to come from this phenomenal event. If you live in the northeastern US, it’s really worth the trip.
Following up the Mercedes CLK GTR from last week, here is yet another 90’s unicorn we saw this year at Amelia Island, a Jaguar XJR-15. One of just 53 produced, it is the road going version of the 24hrs of LeMans-winning XJR-9 racecar. I mean, just look at the interior, and how the seats are just molded right onto the carbon tub. It’s an extreme experience to be sure.
We’ve seen this car a few times before, it’s been a staple of the Amelia Island scene every time we’ve been, but this was the nicest setting I’ve been able to shoot it in. Enjoy!
With a top speed of around 100mph, this striking blue Lagonda was one of the fastest British cars of its day. It was so fast, in fact, that a Lagonda 4.5L won LeMans the year before this car was made. You can see the rest of the details on this car in the image below.
What really drew me to this car was its distinctive color combo and its awesome hood ornament. The color is almost like BMW’s Laguna Seca Blue, and the interior is chocolate leather with light wood trim. It’s a gorgeous combination! As for the hood ornament, it’s a native gentleman fighting a snake with a hatchet. Quite an epic scene to witness as you drive along.
Enjoy the gallery of this magnificent classic Brit!
