About Us

June 14th, 2012 · 0 Comments. Wait. What is this place?

The Story: Man on the Move is the product of a life-long friendship between co-founders Ian Velardi and Stuart Schwartzapfel. The pair developed a funny habit of calling one another every time a cool car or motorcycle drove by to discuss, in intricate detail, how utterly awesome it was. They started Man on the Move […]


BMW M5 – Pasadena Freeway, Los Angeles

January 27th, 2011 · → 2 Just Had A Near-Life Experience

Our dear friend, fellow blogger and purveyor of all things cool Nick Maggio recently ran a post on his blog about this utterly amazing ’88 E28 M5, the first of just 30 black on blacks to be imported to these shores. Nick was good enough to reserve a few choice pics from his shoot for […]


Under the hood: Jim Bauer

March 2nd, 2010 · → 18 Just Had A Near-Life Experience

Pictured: BMX rider/artist Jim Bauer and his 1981 Porsche 911 SC Jim Bauer is no stranger to Q&A, but his interviews are usually about a crazy BMX gap, or maybe his custom designed T shirts, or even his artistic approach to wedding planning . When it comes to cars, I like Jim’s perspective because he’s […]

Porsche Carrera – Robertson Blvd., Los Angeles

January 11th, 2010 · → 5 Just Had A Near-Life Experience

We all know that feeling. You suddenly notice the girl next door. You finally pay attention to what’s beautiful about that famous painting. On the radio, you hear an old song your dad used to sing along to in a whole new way. That thing you’ve experienced a million times suddenly becomes…something else. Because of […]

Chevy Camaro Z28 Type LT – Holt Ave, Los Angeles

January 5th, 2010 · → 5 Just Had A Near-Life Experience

The dented rear fender from prom night ’77. The cigarette burn from a drunken night at the disco on new years ’80. The scratch down the passenger door from shopping kart bowling on a warm night in ’83. The stories these survivors tell through their scars and battle wounds get silenced during a restoration, and […]

Under the hood: Robbie Pyle

December 24th, 2009 · → 11 Just Had A Near-Life Experience

Pictured – Robbie Pyle and his 1965 Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint GT An Alfa Romeo isn’t exactly the car people picture when referencing a self-proclaimed “skate-rat.” But believe it or not, a dirty skateboard fits just as nicely in the back of a vintage European classic as it does in any other cool car usually […]

VW Thing – Santa Monica Blvd, West Hollywood

December 21st, 2009 · → 3 Just Had A Near-Life Experience

There’s just something about a car being so damn ugly it’s beautiful. If this is a grandfather, the grandson is a steroid-using, metro-sexual, in-the-gym-5-days-a-week H2. Part of “the greatest generation”, where form followed function, this thing sits on the porch, shaking his head, asking himself, “where the hell did we go wrong?” You can call […]

Under the Hood: Bill Sack

November 4th, 2009 · → 2 Just Had A Near-Life Experience

Pictured – Bill Sack, of fine men’s clothing shop Craft LA, in his 1957 Chevy 3100 stepside pickup. WHY DID YOU GET INVOLVED WITH CRAFT AND WHAT ARE YOUR PLANS FOR IT? Nobody was doing a workwear presentation properly in my mind.  It was all too costumey.  Pete and I wanted to do a Japanese-Americana […]

1939 Indian Chief – Washington Blvd., LA

October 21st, 2009 · → 5 Just Had A Near-Life Experience

So this is what they looked like when they actually rolled out of Springfield. This ’39 Injin is pure class, through and through. And no, that’s not some old rich guy riding it because his mechanic told him to get it out of the garage once a year, that’s a 24 year-old with perhaps more […]
