We’ve made no effort to hide our growing interest in the automotive world that lies off the beaten path, and over the past couple of years, the number of trucks here in the SW Garage seems to have multiplied, for the better of course. When it comes to off-road trucks, there are a number of ways to improve your truck, ranging from locked differentials and transfer cases, to engine swaps, axle swaps, and more.
There’s no doubt that we are here to take in the beauty and excitement that life has to offer. For many of us, that passion unfolds behind the wheel with fuel burning through the engine. It’s what drives us and makes our heart race and there’s something so precious in the passion that we all share.
I loosely remember the first time I saw Van Go – perhaps it was in a magazine, or maybe online – the details are fuzzy, but unimportant. What I do remember was a sense of curiosity. To be honest, I wasn’t quite sure what I was looking at; I knew, quite obviously, that it was a beyond-custom Ford Econoline van, but I couldn’t tell when it had been built.
The snow outside is probably going to stick. The salt trucks are out here in Minnesota. The road and cars are covered with the white dust the county lays out on the road to keep us all from freezing to death in a ditch. This means my ‘72 911 is tucked safely away in the garage. I didn’t even have a chance to take it out one last time.
Winter rolled in more swiftly than usual this year, once again putting motoring itself in extended stasis.
When it comes to the unique, the obscure, and the remarkable, there’s no better place to look than the greens of the Pebble Beach Golf Course. Each summer, the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance brings about some of the automotive world’s greatest treasures and oddities, and thus it should come as no surprise that it stands as one of our favorite events of the year. It offers a chance to capture the details, facets, and intricacies of cars unlike anything else.
