Spotted this unknown vintage military tractor trailer on I-80 outside of Salt Lake. Other than being a pretty cool rig, it’s also interesting to note how much the breed of truck has grown over the years.
Anyone know the make and model? There’s a super cool Man on the Move t-shirt with your name on it if you can name that rig.
Who could miss this menacing 430 Coupe parked curbside on Newbury Street in downtown Boston. The owner, a proprietor of Newton-based AVI Audio Visual Installations, proudly displays his custom audio shop logo on the beautiful looking glass sitting atop the Ferrari’s mid-mounted V8. Pretty good advertising don’t you think?
Shortly after spotting this Italian stalion, a bright orange Lotus Elise roared by in dramatic fashion. A pretty good day overall.
Have you ever run into one of those massive crane rigs that routinely hoist ginormous building materials 30 or 40 stories into the air in dense urban areas? It’s quite a spectacle and construction workers often stop pedestrian traffic while the crane is operating to avoid falling objects from landing on top of the heads of unsuspecting tourists. Ever wonder how massive cranes like this get transported to the cobblestone-laden, utterly narrow streets of SoHo of all places? You’re looking at how. Good old fashioned muscle from names like Mack and International.
It doesn’t get a lot tougher than this. I get memories of Stallone in Over the Top just looking at these things.
Looking at this beautifully maintained, two-tone Chevy C/K pick up, spotted in Monmouth Beach by one of our Man on the Move faithful, kinda makes me want to dress head to toe in denim and open up a ranch somewhere. I guess you can call that powerful design.

Bet you didn’t know junkyards could be this charming. Well, that’s what happens when you combine a starry California night with the amazing talents of photographer Troy Paiva. We’ve covered Troy’s junkyard exploits before, last time at Pearsonville. This time around, Troy did his rounds at Paul’s Junkyard in the high desert near Lancaster, CA. As you can tell from the amazing photos displayed here, there were plenty of cool old cars, buses, airplanes, and even tanks, to focus a lens on. What’s interesting about this yard versus others is how many old movie cars and props managed to wind up there. Perhaps it’s the proximity to Hollywood.
Troy actually holds night photography workshops at this junkyard a few times a year in case you’re interested in seeing how it’s done. The next one is just around the corner. Email Troy for more info.
“The Forgotten Spy”
Super-rare Ghia-bodied 1960 Chrysler Imperial Limousine, customized as a prop car for the movie “Lemony Snicket.” Possibly the coolest car interior I’ve ever seen anywhere. That it’s decaying in a junkyard makes it even more insanely cool! Yeah, you really need to sign onto our workshop mailing list so you can shoot here too.
“Interstate 5 by Airliner”
Exotic debris, piled up at Paul’s Junkyard, site of my upcoming night photography and light painting workshop. A totally unique experience in the photography workshop universe, day or night. Night, 4 minute exposure. Full moon, lime-gelled and natural LED flashlight.
Say hello to Aventador, Lamborghini’s new HBIC (Head Bull In Charge) and the sinister replacement vehicle for the former Lambo king Murcielago. Her menacing matte black finish is straight from the factory. So is the 691HP fire breathing V12 residing beneath those sexy glass slats (first all-new V12 in almost 15 years). The whole thing is good for nearly 220 MPH and, if that’s not enough, shifts faster than you can say whiplash.
How appropriate, we spotted this one at the posh Shore Club in Miami. I wonder how big a douche the driver is.
Our loyal follower and frequent tube catcher Francisco managed to take in a little auto culture on a recent surfing trip Bocas Del Toro. Great stuff Fran. Thanks for the gritty, charmingly authentic spots. Love the rusted patina on that mini and man is that one cool old fire truck.
