Pick of the Day 43

I just felt like sharing this one for some reason.

I hope people get inspired when they see cars like the above Toyota Crown, being partially or fully restored to road worthy condition, to want to appreciate and keep older cars from dying away in some scrap yard.
Keeping an older car on the road, could (depending on many factors including what the car is and where you are located) cost less than buying a new one and is considered to actually be safer for the environment; seeing that preserving an older car requires less resources & energy to rebuild.
Consumerism and this endless pursuit for convenience is part of the fast paced life many people live nowadays but its also admirable to see that some car enthusiasts take the initiative to get dirty for the sake of commemorating (for the lack of a better word) ‘the finer things in life’, like they say.

Japanese Old Muscle.

Pick of the Day 39

This is circulating all over the net and deserves some attention. Not sure of the authenticity of this picture but I’ll go ahead and comment about it. Below is the founder and CEO of Pagani, Horacio Pagani, washing his own car all by himself while stripped down to his purest form.

Seems like the legit behavior of a true car enthusiast (with exception to the use of a power washer)?

We need more CEOs like him in the auto industry.485585_10151459460364087_1404928750_n

Pick(s) of the Day 37, ‘It was Acceptable in the 80s’

The 80s were some exotic times. Especially in the automotive world. It was a digital celebration. Everything started to look like it was drawn with a ruler from wrist watches to cars.

Japanese cars were invading the world and the automobile was being engineered to resemble its present form. Probably, after this era, the evolution of cars has exponentially slowed down.

Regardless the automotive shapes, designs and technology that came out from this era were truly phenomenal. Feast your eyes on some of the these old school Toyotas, they are an impressive job for a young car-maker at the time; if only they still have the will to build something as remarkable as these nowadays. All they got are boring and characterless cars, for now.
