1937 Bugatti Type 57C in Two-Tone Blue at Lime Rock

IMG_4775

I’ve shared some of the Type 57 SC’s I saw at Limerock this year. They were the hypercars of their day, the ultimate of speed and technology. This is a Bugatti Type 57C, the grandest of grand touring cars, similar to a Rolls Royce Dawn or Bentley Continental today. This one is particularly pretty in two-tone blue.

Enjoy the gallery.

Podcast: Comparing Camaros, Classic vs Contemporary

Having recent seat time in both a ’69 Camaro SS 396 and two Gen6 Camaro SS 1LEs, I wanted to compare the Camaro experience between generations that are 50 years apart.

Review in the video, gallery below. Enjoy!

The two most colorful GM products at Hershey? Of course!

IMG_5896

Bright red doesn’t work on every car, and until last month I wouldn’t have put it as a good color on a 1966 Toronado. I also wouldn’t have put yellow up as a good color on a 1977 Firebird, but combined with the Formula appearance package, it works like a charm. I’m glad I was there to shoot these two, however briefly it was. Hopefully they make a repeat appearance at Hershey next year. Continue reading The two most colorful GM products at Hershey?

Radwood Philly: And the winner of the “1980s Theme Award” goes to…

IMG_7416

If you’ve seen Scarface, you’ll know Tony Montana buys a Porsche 928 to impress his boss, Frank’s, soon-to-be-single lady.

The owner of this gold 928 decided to go all out on the 80’s theme at Radwood and leave a few suspicious white lines on the center console of his car. (That must be baking powder… right?)

Highlights from Radwood Philadelphia 2018

IMG_7000

This was the first Radwood event on the east coast, and it was surely one of my favorite events of this year. Radwood is a car-based celebration of 1980s and 90s culture and the stuff that showed up was extremely interesting. I’ll let the highlights do the rest of the talking for now. There’s much more to come. Enjoy!

Highlights from the Scarsdale Concours

IMG_6601

We love the Scarsdale Concours because it has a much more relaxed vibe than most other Concours events and while it’s not huge in size, the cars are always top notch. This year did not disappoint. We’ll let the gallery do the rest of the talking.

Enjoy!

Mini Gallery of the September 2018 Caffeine and Carburetors at New Canaan, CT

A few weeks ago I was able to make up for lost time by attending the first of two fall Caffeine and Carburetors events in New Canaan, CT. This one, held on the main drag, was not as heavily-populated as some have been in the past, but as it was my first time, I was still very happy to have come up. These are some of my favorite shots of the day and I hope to attend more of these down the road. The next one will be in October, likely late in the month, and will serve as the season finale. Enjoy the photos. Continue reading Mini Gallery of the September 2018 Caffeine and Carburetors at New Canaan, CT

Porsche 356 A 1600 ‘Super’ Speedster in the paddock at Lime Rock

IMG_4907

Cars don’t get much blue-er than this little Porsche we found in the paddock at Lime Rock Park. What a fantastic machine, I’d buy one for the color alone!

Enjoy.

1937 Bugatti Type 57 SC Atalante at Lime Rock Park

IMG_4995

This two-tone green¬†1937 Bugatti Type 57 SC Atalante was only just overshadowed at Lime Rock Park because it was in the presence of the two pinnacle Type 57 SC models, the Atlantic Coupe and the¬†Gangloff Drophead Coupe. Anywhere else it would’ve easily taken best in show.

Only 17 Atalante Coupes were built, and this green one is particularly elegant. Like the Type 57 SC Atlantic I posted recently, this Atalante was also very much a hypercar back in 1937 in the same way the Chiron is today. The modern car may be much faster, but I’d argue the old car wore it better.

Enjoy the photos.
