There’s a special feeling some of us experience each year as red and orange leaves fall from the trees and clutter the black asphalt. There’s no denying the absolute beauty that comes from the autumn months, but with the joy and the allure of the two weeks where the earth turns orange comes a sense of fear and distress.
If you’re anything like your grandfather, there’s a chance, a long time ago, that behind his garage door sat something he cherished. Maybe it was American iron; perhaps foreign steel. It could be that he waxed it every Saturday morning, or maybe he left it dirty after the Friday night races. One thing, however, is for certain: we have quite a bit to thank him for.
There’s one thing many people assume: for a car to grab attention, and better yet, hold it, it must be built to the nines. There’s no arguing that building a car in such a fashion is a surefire way to leave an impression; however, sometimes it is simplicity that appears most complex.
There’s something to be said about a car that defines the word “understated.” On paper, John Holdridge’s B8 S4 is one that may leave something to be desired.
Every now and then we meet people in our lives that amaze us. People with motivation and determination; people who are driven. Aaron, who some of you may know as Maximus, is one of those people.
Last week, the minitruck scene in Australia had one of the biggest annual shows of the year, and the oldest on going show to date, the East Coast Cruise. People travel from across the country to attend. Little did they know that Aaron had a surprise in store for the show.
In 1948, Ferdinand Porsche crafted a vehicle that would change the automotive world forever. The Porsche 356, the grandfather of the 911 model, was Porsche’s first production vehicle. Today, there are less than 30,000 left, meaning they’ve amassed some serious value amongst collectors.
