Man on the Move Goes To India – Volume III: Ambassadors

January 27th, 2012 by Emir

You know the old saying…if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. The cabbies in India proudly embrace this motto as evidenced by their taxi of choice for the last half century. The Hindistan Ambassador, lovingly referred to as “The King of Indian Roads” by locals, is essentially a copy of a late 50s Morris Oxford III that has been produced by Hindustan Motors since 1958. Head to their website for tech specs and you’ll find innovations like drum brakes and a 38HP diesel motor. Jokes aside though, they actually do have a wide range of engines including a natural gas option. Think of it as old tech with a new theme.

Pictured above and below, the handsome Ambassador doing what is does best…schlepping people around.

Man on the Move Goes To Portugal – Sights & Sounds

January 22nd, 2012 by Stu

One of our Man on the Move faithful snapped this duo of blue beauties on a recent trip to Portugal. The iconic E-Type is a Mark III, and boasts a powerful V12 underneath its louvered bonnet. The story behind its 5.3L V12 is actually quite interesting and dates back to the 50s. The Fiat 500 is, of course, unmistakable no matter what country you live in. Nonetheless, an awesome sighting every time.

Thanks for the great snaps Michal. Your adventures across the globe are always welcome here.

Man on the Move Goes to India – Two and Three Wheeled Edition

January 12th, 2012 by Emir

Gaze upon the first in our series of posts chronicling the street spotting scene in India (yeah, that’s right, we’re global now). Pictured here, sights and sounds from 2 and 3 wheeled methods of transport with a few horses and camels thrown in for good measure.

This beautiful, gritty imagery really forces you to rethink the word utility don’t cha think?

Car Spotting, Nantucket Style – Nantucket, Mass

January 6th, 2012 by Stu

Miami is known for its flashy, look-at-me exotics. Beverly Hills, its opulent, and often times chauffer-driven situations. The Hamptons, of course, soccer moms and stock brokers in standard issue Range Rovers. And let’s not forget the left coasters and their all-season drop tops. But what springs to mind when pondering the preferred method of transport on the charming island of Nantucket? If you were thinking glorious wood-clad Jeep Grand Wagoneers and vintage Toyota Land Cruisers then you deserve a gold star and a pat on the back.

New England is so utterly charming in the Winter. And these rough and tumble classics only add to the landscape’s appeal.
