BMW Owner Meet Up – Harriman State Park, NY

BMW Owner Meet - Harriman State Park, NY

Our pal Drew sent over these moody pics from a recent BMW owners meetup in Harriman State Park. He said the impromptu Bavarian gathering kinda happened through word of mouth. You know…I know a couple of guys, who then invited a couple of guys. That sort of thing. Just an informal meetup and drive by some local enthusiasts on a nice Spring (now Summer) day.

Greenwich Concours d ‘ Elegance – Sights & Sounds

Greenwich Concours d ' Elegance - Sights & Sounds

As is often the case at the Greenwich Concours d ‘ Elegance, there is as much prescious metal in the parking lot as there is on the field. Above and below, a mixed bag of premium sightings like this early Ford GT40 prototype (above) and a 1955 Ghia Bodied Jaguar XK 140MC.

Happy Friday!

Alfa Romeo GTV6 2.5 – Wilshire BLVD, LA

June 13th, 2013 by Stu

Alfa Romeo GTV6 2.5 - Wilshire BLVD, LA

Here’s some Italian charm from the 80s for you on this fine Thursday. Spotted on Wilshire, this GTV-6 was engineered to be an even sportier version of the GTV sportback coupe complete with the SOHC 2.5L engine out of the Alfa 6 luxury sedan. In order to clear the top of the intake, the GTV6 was given a distinctive hood bulge (see above) that became one of the defining styling attributes of the vehicle. Also cool is the design influence from Alfa’s stunning 1967 Montreal Supercar that later went into production in similar guise.

Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz Convertible – Los Angeles, California

Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz Convertible - Los Angeles, California

Here’s a ’60 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz Convertible I spotted in an industrial part of west Los Angeles near the 405 freeway and Olympic blvd. The photos don’t do justice to this baby’s massive proportions. Adding to the exaggerated dimensions is the absurd fact that it’s a 2 door! This is arguably the height of american car design. The iconic tailfin design even found its way to european cars such as the Mercedes Benz 190D even though they were called “sight lines.”

Chrome Lamborghini Gallardo – Park Ave @ 29th Street, NYC

June 7th, 2013 by Stu

Chrome Lamborghini Gallardo - Park Ave @ 29th Street, NYCIt’s not often that we spot the same car in two different locations outside the city limits. Last week, one of our spotters caught this chrome Gallardo strutting its stuff in Southampton. One week later, another loyal Man on the Move fan spotted the very same Lambo on Park Avenue North crossing 29th street. How do we know it’s the same car? Well, it’s a chrome Lamborghini…you don’t exactly see them on every street corner. Kudos to the owner for driving the world’s fastest, most expensive mirror. 

Thanks for the pics Charles and Danny!

Pagani Huayra – Beverly Wilshire Hotel, LA

June 6th, 2013 by Stu

Pagani Huayra - Beverly Wilshire Hotel, LA

One of our loyal spotters snagged these pics of Pagani’s hyper-exotic Huayra (pronounced: wai-rah) outside the well-to-do Beverly Wilshire Hotel. In case you’re curious about the name of this beast, it’s derived from the official language of the Inca Empire and means “God of the winds”, an appropriate taxonomy considering the vehicle’s 3.3 sprint to 60 MPH. The $1.3M, mid-engine Huayra is actually one of the fasest street legal cars you can buy and will top out just north of 230 MPH thanks to advanced aerodynamics and the Mercedes-sourced twin-turbo V12 packing 720 HP & a whopping 740 lb-ft of torque. Oh and that quad exhaust…perhaps the coolest execution ever

What a great sighting!

NCRS New England Chapter Regional Meet – Marlborough Massachusetts

June 5th, 2013 by Stu

NCRS New England Chapter Regional Meet - Marlborough Massachusetts

For a moment, let’s think about what it might feel like to be man handled by an overzealous prison guard with a hunch you’re carrying contraband on your person. Not a pleasant thought by any means but nonetheless what I was constantly reminded of as I spent an entire day watching team after team of all-knowing Corvette judges poke and prod at my dad’s 1965 Fuelie at this year’s regional NCRS [New England Corvette Restorers Society] chapter meet. Body, interior, frame…they did not skip an inch. If you recall, me and the old man attended a similar Bloomington Gold event in 2011 where our car took top honors. Well, this NCRS event made Bloomington look like a walk in the park comparatively. I watched as judges measured authenticity and originality for details that you didn’t even know were details. I overheard one judge proclaim “this hose is from a ’65 not a ’64” as he rolled around on the floor inspecting the undercarriage of an attractive red Big Block that was parked next to us. The exact positioning and placement of badging on the hood, for instance, is an area where you can loose points. We’re talking 10ths of an inch here people.

In the end, we grabbed Top Flight for our car. I guess all the nail biting and scrutiny was worth it.
