Fugly Kit Car – Williamsburg, Brooklyn

December 31st, 2013 by Stu

Fugly Kit Car - Williamsburg, Brooklyn

I spotted this home grown kit car in Brooklyn. The term improvised comes to mind as you take in the fabrication details scattered throughout the body. As you can  tell, this “Porsche” is a bit rough around the edges and brings new meaning to the term Do It Yourself. I think a stiff breeze would blow off some of the body panels. My guess is that a VW Beetle power plant, mounted in the rear, provides motivation for this fugly sports car. The tried and true work horse has powered countless other kit cars and, based on a quick peek inside the cabin, also provided parts for the steering wheel, shifter and other interior deets.

Land Rover Defender – Park Avenue, NYC

Land Rover Defender - Park Avenue, NYC

One of the more modern Defender 90s I have run into in a while. The black and white two-tone paint is hip and the car is super clean. Not a ding, rust patch or shred of off-roading evidence to be found anywhere on the vehicle. I guess they can’t all be mud monkeys. Love the black wheels in contrast with the roof.

Car Spotting @ the Plaza – 5th Avenue, NYC

Car Spotting @ the Plaza - 5th Avenue, NYC

Walking by the Plaza Hotel is always good for car spotting experiences worth remembering.  This time around, I caught two notable rides. First, parked prominently in front of the hotel, a beautiful Aston Martin DBS Volante. Then, along 5th avenue, rumbling passed the hotel, an all-new Maserati Quattroporte surfaced. Not a bad haul.

Buick Riviera – Sixth Avenue, NYC

Buick Riviera - Sixth Avenue, NYC

This third generation Buick Riviera spotted on Sixth Avenue sports distinctive “boat tail” styling that really stands out on a dreary Manhattan Sunday. The big Buick was styled under the direction of legendary GM design chief Bill Mitchell. You might recognize the name from another car he designed. In fact, the “vee-butted” fastback rear window you see on the Riviera was inspired by the ’63 Stingray split window coupe that Mitchell is also well known for.

2015 Mustang Worldwide Premier – Chelsea: West 22nd Street, NYC

2015 Mustang Worldwide Premier - Chelsea: West 22nd Street, NYC

It was only fitting for NYC to serve as the backdrop for Ford’s worldwide 2015 Mustang debut. Well, technically it co-debuted in Detroit and NYC but who’s counting. The original Mustang debuted in 1964 to much fanfare at the World’s Fair in Queens so Ford paid homage to our fair city in unleashing their latest pony car onto the world with the lavish gala you see pictured here. Mustang pool tables, films from the ages featuring Mustangs playing all over flat screens wrapping the room, flowing cocktails and, of course, two brand new 2015 Mustangs in all their glory. The convertible was a 5.0L GT with 420 angry horsepower while the Cherry Red coupe featured the all-new turbo four cylinder mill that will likely take over volume duties from the V6. Don’t scoff at the four…it will pack a 300+ HP punch while simultaneously delivering phenomenal fuel economy. The new Mustang is all-new from the ground up and features an evolved design that’s unmistakeable as anything but a Mustang but with more sophistication and, dare I say, European flair than before. And that’s a pretty good thing because, for the first time,  Mustang will be on sale in Europe.

Thanks for invite Ford. It was one hell of a party and one hell of car.
