H-D Custom: Pier 39 – Astoria, OR

November 10th, 2010 by Emir

There is nothing stock about this dashing H-D spotted at Pier 39 in Astoria. The owner really went for it – S&S motor, lightly raked frame, chromed everything, custom tank and controls, cut off pipes, short rear fender and one big ass mother of a rear tire. If this thing were any cleaner, there would be a bald guy in a white t-shirt standing in front of it with his arms crossed.

Reflections of America Collection: Volume 3 – God Bless America

November 9th, 2010 by Stu

Another amazing exercise in photorealism from our talented friend Bob Petillo…

This 17” X 12.5” acrylic on canvas painting was #3 in the “Reflections of America” series. It was the fall of ‘04. And I knew by now not to go anywhere without my camera. So a simple walk from the car to the drug store in one of the many, many strip malls of Paramus, New Jersey, turned into a photo once I spotted this customized ’56 Mercury. It’s reflecting the grand opening of yet another one of thousands of small businesses along Rte 4. Now captured in paint, that small event can be shown with proper importance, not to be taken for granted. Another American exercising his/her right to free enterprise.

All I can say about that is “God Bless America”.

Ford Mustang Mach 1: RT-102 – Lee, Massachusetts

November 8th, 2010 by Stu

The tired green paint on this pony car survivor caught the corner of my eye as I sped past its final resting place on RT-102 in the Berkshire Mountains. The lot, completely overgrown and ignored, looked to be the former home of a car dealership (check out the concrete podium the Mach 1 sits on). It was something out of a Tim Burton movie, as if the cars had simply been abandoned and left unattended for a dozen years. Perhaps the dealership was never able to unload those last few cars. Anybody in the market for a weathered Caddy or Lincoln of the mid 90s variety? I’ll bet these guys are willing to deal.

Porsche 911 Carrera 4 – SW 2nd Ave & SW Gibbs St, Portland, OR

November 3rd, 2010 by Emir

Among the last of the air-cooled Porsches, Black/Black, Turbo wheels, extra wide Turbo body shell, four-wheel drive and a big ass Turbo-style rear wing. It’s essentially a Turbo without the Turbo.

Works for me.

Pontiac Bonneville: St. Charles & Josephine St. – New Orleans, LA

November 2nd, 2010 by Austin

Spotted this gorgeous Pontiac Bonneville on St. Charles ave and Josephine St. outside of a new restaurant called the Eiffel Society. Much like the hip new restaurant, which has been constructed inside of a building that was originally part of the Eiffel tower, this Pontiac is representative of an iconic automotive brand whose legacy will live on forever, enriching car culture and the enthusiasm that supports it.

Ghoulish Motorcycle Halloween Rally – 59th St Bridge Exit, NYC

November 1st, 2010 by Stu

It’s good to see that this local biker group isn’t too tough to have a good time like the rest of us on Halloween. The gaggle of crotch rockets and blatantly non-street legal dirt bikes came roaring into town by way of the 59th street bridge, fully dressed in all manor of fun costumes, performing tricks and waving to onlookers as they rolled by. There is nothing like seeing Elmo do a wheelie on an ATV to make your Halloween a memorable one.

Thanks for the great spot Charles.

Enjoy!
