I know, you’re saying:
1. “What? Another Porsche 911 video?” Well, just look at those wheels, they scream 2nd gen Miata. That silhouette screams 4th gen Miata RF.
2. “What? Another Iceland video?” Well, didn’t you know that Iceland is the new cool (no pun intended) vacation spot (caution: some NSFW language), round trips from NY for like only $500.
3. “What? Another Petrolicious video? Like literally half the videos you post.” Well, the Movie Suggestion Hotlines are always open, dial 1-800-MX5VIDS or leave a comment below.

Barn Finds Into Secret Supercars

This guy sort of reminds me of Rob Dickinson, the guy behind last week’s Singer 911, passionately obsessed with design, perfection & automobiles. Unfortunately neither you nor I will ever be able to afford either one of their creations, but fun to dream about anyway.

Double Feature

Our 1st feature is about a half a million dollar Singer re-imagined Porsche 911.

The 2nd flick shows part of why these cars cost that much, the work of Ed Pink engine builders.

Beauty & The Beach

Matt Jacobson is a simple man with specific tastes. He spent years tracking this car down, and we recently sat down with him to hear the full story:

I always loved the car. It’s so elegant, it has this look of an Italian sports car of the era with all the VW underpinnings, and that extra foot, or however little bit longer it is than the regular Karmann Ghia platform. It’s very well-proportioned. The rear end is evocative of a round tail light BMW 2002. And, it has this bubble top roof that sits on very narrow B pillars that make it look like the hard top of a Mercedes 300SL Roadster.

A Classic Purchased Without Regret

Typically 2+2 body styles are less desirable to two-seaters—that’s true of the Datsun 240Z and the Lotus Elan. But with the Lotus the Plus 2 wears the larger size with elegance, and at a still-attainable price point. While not enjoying the valuation of the lighter drophead coupe, the 10 inches of additional width and two feet of length give the classic a character of its own.

Brieuc like other Elan enthusiasts was initially looking for a convertible, but fell in love when he saw this 1972 +2 coupe in Lotus Yellow with matching numbers. Beautifully maintained on the outside with not even a hint of a crack in its fiberglass body, the Elan delights on the inside with its burl wood dash.

“I’m an idiot but I love it. I love this car,” said Brieuc. Seeing the lithe, 2000-pound coupe in motion, we can see why.
