So I used to work at a parts store here in NH that used to be a Robbins that was in a building that used to be a Studebaker dealership. Well, this poster was wedged between the parts shelves and a support column that held up a newer mezzanine.
Want to buy a Transit van? Don’t live in North America? Are disabled or spend a lot of time in traffic? Up to now, you’ve had a problem because all Transits outside North America have come with three pedals.
Just got a notification that Ford Performance posted a new video of the next gen Raptor playing out in the desert. Fun watch, bet they are gonna sell a ton of them.
This is an old and broken down Ford.
Do you honestly think Ferrari would have been better off with Ford in the 60's? Yes, I know, pride and spinning and such, but I cringe at the thought of a now where Ferrari doesn’t look like what it is now.
I’m sure there’re a whole lot of tributes today to the late great Formula 1 driver, Ayrton Senna - my feed is pretty jammed. I came across one that shows a side to the man other than stoic racer-staring or racer-philosophizing you usually get.

Here is a very cool car advertisement from the mid 1950s.
Stuff will be happening at some point. Lots of work ‘till it’s done, but here’s a couple rolling shots for now. First time doing rolling shots of another car, and it was not easy.
