Jingle Trucks of Pakistan

Jingle Trucks, a designation allegedly bestowed on the machines by visiting military contractors, are decorated with elaborate crowns on top of the truck bed known as a taj. Elaborate paintings, woodwork and hand-crafted ornaments are used as a way to show the driver’s interests, passions and sense of pride.

Take A Lap of LeMans

…in 1956.

A camera is strapped to the back of a D-Type Jaguar and a microphone fitted to driver Mike Hawthorn so he can commentate his way around the circuit in 1956 – the result is rare and revealing treat. Worth watching to marvel at how far technology has come in 60 years…


Tyler loves his Porsche 914 and doesn't care what you think

Of all the possible Porsches to inspire Tyler Hauptman’s passion, why on earth is he so enthusiastic about the 914? He’d be happy to tell you, but he’d rather show you. Check out Hauptman’s loud, obnoxious, and charming 1974 Porsche 914 in the latest “Why I Drive” video from Hagerty.

There is a 1973 Porsche 914 for sale right now on Bring a Trailer. Presently it is sitting at $5,000 with 4 days left, but it’ll probably go for 3 or 4 times that in the end. What ever you spend for it, Tyler would approve.

The influence of modified Japanese sports cars found a new high watermark in the car enthusiast community in the 1990s and early 2000s, especially with the younger subset looking for something other than their parents’ favorite European and American fare.

Strange Cars In A Strange Land In A Strange Time

The cars, American Land Yachts. The land, Jolly Ol’ England. And the time, 1973. Six minutes of a very stylish English gentleman expressing disdain for the use of Detroit Iron to navigate their tiny roads.


1963 TVR Grantua: Eye Candy

Gregorie Desmons has always had a sensitivity to the aesthetic elements of life, and so for him the first impulses to own classic sports cars came from the question of form rather than horsepower. Though many will argue that art following its purest definition shouldn’t be concerned with anything practical like transportation, we all know the truth to be otherwise…
