You Have Hereby Been Challenged To A Dual-Ghia You Have Hereby Been Challenged To A Dual-Ghia

The 1950s were heady days in the automotive world. The post-WWII era brought sweeping advancement in technology, design, and horsepower. Money was flowing, and things were quite prosperous in the United States. A corresponding increase in car sales and a demand for large and luxurious cars led to ballooning prices. By…

Here Are Some Awesome Cars I Randomly Saw Around Los Angeles Here Are Some Awesome Cars I Randomly Saw Around Los Angeles

For a country as big as America—and during my three-week stay in California alone I realized just how big America really is—I couldn’t think of many other cities where there’d be as many exotic cars driving around like there were in Los Angeles. I can’t imagine New York being too supercar friendly. I guess there’s…

I Went To An Underground Car Meet In America And It Was Ridiculous I Went To An Underground Car Meet In America And It Was Ridiculous

It was my last weekend in California and while I was recovering from the exotic overload that was Monterey Car Week, I hopped at the first chance to go to an “underground meet” in Orange County. Having experienced the craziness of the Sunset Plaza GT meet I had high hopes and curiosity to see what a night meet in…

The Monterey Motorsports Reunion Is Why You Should Always Meet Your Heroes  The Monterey Motorsports Reunion Is Why You Should Always Meet Your Heroes 

As Monterey Car Week began its annual social media takeover, for me, several predominant themes emerged. There was no shortage of stunning supercars skirting the Pacific Coast on famed roads like Highway 1 and 17 Mile Drive. The ornate streets of Carmel showcased some of the finest works of automotive art ever…

Everywhere You Go At Monterey Car Week Will Blow Your Mind Everywhere You Go At Monterey Car Week Will Blow Your Mind

In an event called “Car Week,” it shouldn’t come as surprise to anyone that there’s a lot to see. There were so many incredible cars around, driving around the town of Carmel and checking the posh hotels nearby made for a whole car show in itself. You don’t even need to fork over a few hundred dollars for tickets to…

There Are Better Things To Do At Monterey Car Week Than The Pebble Beach Concours There Are Better Things To Do At Monterey Car Week Than The Pebble Beach Concours

Considered by many to be the most famous car show in the world, the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance is the climax of the Monterey Car Week festivities. It’s a show held for charity where both pre and post-war cars are gathered at one of the best golf course in the world. As shows go, the Pebble Beach Concours is…

Here Are The Cheapest Cars Sold At The 2017 Pebble Beach Auctions Here Are The Cheapest Cars Sold At The 2017 Pebble Beach Auctions

Another Monterey Car Week has come and gone. Fortunes changed hands and many resplendent vehicles have found new homes with new owners. It’s a happy time for all.

The Quail Is How The Fanciest People Do Car Shows The Quail Is How The Fanciest People Do Car Shows

Out of all the events held during Monterey Car Week, The Quail was by far the my favorite. If you don’t mind feeling like a peasant amongst all the wealthy (tickets cost do $600), you can spend a couple of hours surrounded by some of the rarest and most exclusive cars on the planet.

I Got Thrown Out Of The Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance, Again I Got Thrown Out Of The Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance, Again

Ah, the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in California. Big hats, fake smiles, astronomical yearly incomes and tax evasion of all levels. Basically: my kind of soirée. At least, it would be if I didn’t keep getting asked to leave. Those bitches.

Bask In The Glorious Tiny Details Of The Cars At The Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance Bask In The Glorious Tiny Details Of The Cars At The Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance

The Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance: an annual event where millionaires scowl at each other’s Bugattis on a golf course, and automotive writers put on teal pants to hang out with them for a day. It’s all quite absurd. But! The cars are very good. Here are some of them.

The New BMW Z4 Is The Most Promising Car From BMW Since The 2 Series The New BMW Z4 Is The Most Promising Car From BMW Since The 2 Series

After years of sitting in the shallow end of BMW’s lineup as a sort-of also-ran, the German roadster is back with the new Z4, and it’s the most promising sign of life out of BMW since the introduction of the 2 Series.

This Wild $1.5 Million Lamborghini Redesign Comes From Japan And Maybe The Future This Wild $1.5 Million Lamborghini Redesign Comes From Japan And Maybe The Future

The age of coachbuilding may just be making a comeback. Ken Okuyama, the ex-Pininfarina designer who was responsible for the Ferrari Enzo and Maserati Quattroporte, has created one hell of a follow-up to the polarizing Code 57 unveiled at last year’s Monterey Car Week. I got to see it and shoot it.

The Sunset Plaza GT Meet Is As Hollywood As Car Shows Get The Sunset Plaza GT Meet Is As Hollywood As Car Shows Get

Currently I’m in California for Monterey Car Week but with a couple of free days before the main events, I wanted to get a taste of the local car scene here. Naturally that led me to the Sunset Plaza GT meet on Sunday morning. Let’s just say I’m a long way from Japan in more ways than one.

The Gorgeous BMW Z4 Concept Proves The Sports Car Isn’t Dead The Gorgeous BMW Z4 Concept Proves The Sports Car Isn’t Dead

BMW broke all our hearts a little bit in 2014 when it said that the sports car market was dying. But with the whole Toyota-Supra partnership and now a sparkling new Z4 concept at Monterey Car Week, we feel some retribution coming for those hurtful words spoken in the past.

This Is Apparently The New BMW Z4 Concept This Is Apparently The New BMW Z4 Concept

BMW has famously declared that sports cars are all but dead, but at some point they must have said “fuck it” to team up with Toyota and bring us a new roadster. We’ll see it later this week at Monterey Car Week, but for now here’s a teaser.

The 2018 Ford GT '67 Heritage Edition Celebrates The Time America Whooped Ferrari's Ass The 2018 Ford GT '67 Heritage Edition Celebrates The Time America Whooped Ferrari's Ass

America’s proudest moment as a country came in 1967, when Carroll Shelby’s team of A. J. Foyt and Dan Gurney sent Ferrari’s team home crying into their spaghetti bowls at the 24 Hours of Le Mans. That day, the Ford GT40 was cemented as a racing legend and America looked cool as hell. Now, to celebrate that kickass…

Infiniti's New Classic Grand Prix Racer Should Be Mocked But It's Too Damn Pretty Infiniti's New Classic Grand Prix Racer Should Be Mocked But It's Too Damn Pretty

We all remember the glory days of racing, back when real men and women sat in thin metal tubes operating insanely fast machines. The days when the Mille Miglia was a sport, not a parade, and everybody wanted to die going fast. Infiniti remembers those good ol’ days—wait what?

Oh, you drive an “old car”? It’s from the ‘80s? That’s cute.

Soak In The Incredible Beauty Of All These Race Cars At The 2016 Pebble Beach Concours Soak In The Incredible Beauty Of All These Race Cars At The 2016 Pebble Beach Concours

Even if the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance is a glorified museum on a suspiciously well-groomed golf course, I can’t sit here and pretend that ridiculously pretty race cars aren’t ridiculously pretty. So you just sit right there and look at these things.

The Pebble Beach Concours Is Not An Event For Cars The Pebble Beach Concours Is Not An Event For Cars

The Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance was a sight to behold with all manner of drop-dead gorgeous vintage machinery on display. Unfortunately, that’s also its problem. It’s no longer an event for cars. It’s a glorified museum on a golf course.
