Since Germany in general and, Berlin especially, is the Benz-v´city “par excellence”, I thought it would be cool to post a bunch of cool old Benzes in one post.
Enjoy!

Ford Raptor Police Truck: Park City, Utah

Ford Raptor Police Truck: Park City, Utah

I guess when you’re patrolling towering mountains and endless stretches of off-road terrain, you kind of need one of these trail-rated, Baja 1000-tested Raptors to get the job done. I would be absolutely terrified to find one of these bad boys creeping up on my rear view. Looks positively menacing doesn’t it?

Thanks for the cool spot Devrin!!

Woodie Rat Rod – Westhampton, New York

Woodie Rat Rod - Westhampton, New York

Ran into this mutt of a rat rod in Westhapmton over the weekend. It merges parts and looks from a host of donors. The homage to woodies is pretty freeking cool and not something I have seen before in this breed of home-brewed vehicle. The engine if a six from an old Ford, the leaf suspension from a Buick, tailgate from a Studebaker. A true masterpiece of backyard construction, the owner tells me it took him about 6 weeks to build. This is automotive character at its finest folks.

Willys Jeep Station Wagon - Lee, Mass

All of the rugged masculinity Chrysler-owned Jeep swears by today started with minimalist, tough-as-nails vehicles like this one.

Lotus Eleven: Springs General Store – East Hampton, NY

August 7th, 2014 by Stu

Lotus Eleven: Springs General Store - East Hampton, NY

The Eleven, produced between ’56 and ’58, was built by Lotus founder and lightweight sherpa Colin Chapman to enter the 1500 cc class. The low-drag sports car was sold for the street with a 36HP Ford engine and drum brakes. Club and Le Mans versions featured more powerful Coventry-Climax engines, disc brakes and (for the Le Mans) a De Dion rear axle. The Le Mans kissed 165 mph in 1955!! Only 270 Elevens were actually built, making them quite collectable (and valuable) today. To give you a sense of what these Elevens go for, this naked aluminum Series 1 (chassis #189), with an illustrious racing pedigree, fetched a cool $126K at an RM auction in 2012.

You don’t see one of these Elevens everyday, let alone outside of a general store in East Hampton. I can’t tell if it’s real or a kit car [lord knows there are plenty of people making them], but who really cares. It’s wicked cool to look at and likely an absolute blast to drive.

Thanks for the spot Zach!!
