Rolls Royce Pickup – I-95, Ft. Lauderdale

Rolls Royce Pickup - I-95, Ft. Lauderdale

As they say, sometimes reality is stranger than fiction. In his classic series, John D. MacDonald‘s protagonist Travis McGee drove a Rolls Royce pickup truck in his hometown of Ft. Lauderdale. This morning, our loyal fan Steve Rice spotted this fascinating minotaur of a luxury automobile on I-95 in Ft. Lauderdale. After doing a bit of research on the El-Camino of Rolls Royces seen here, we quickly discovered that it isn’t the sole member of this automotive tribe. Even funnier, they all seem to hail from Ft Lauderdale.Thanks Steve! Grade A spotting.

Second Sighting: Mysterious Homemade EV – East 64th Street, NYC

 Second Sighting: Mysterious Homemade EV – East 64th Street, NYC

We have acquired another, more telling angle of the mysterious, homemade, solar powered EV currently humming around Manhattan [emissions free of course]. It definitely appears to be of the vintage British variety, either originating as an MG or Caterham, or both.

Somebody flag this owner down and ask questions next time he’s spotted!!!! We must know more about this amazing piece of custom engineering.

D-I-Y, Solar-Powered EV – East 64th Street, NYC

D-I-Y, Solar-Powered EV - East 64th Street, NYC

One of our loyal NYC spotters caught this thoroughly interesting, homemade EV navigating the Upper East Side yesterday afternoon. Where do I start on this thing? How about the reference to 1972 on the vanity plate and the Caterham 7-esq fenders and wheels reminiscent of the same era. Could it be…a custom EV built atop a vintage British sports car platform? The canvas exterior skin, complete with solar panels, indicates that a more production-ready body is perhaps in the works and that the vehicle’s maker is indeed undergoing field testing in the pothole-laden Island of Manhattan. Some people have hobbies, other build EV sports cars.

Amazing sighting. Thanks Charles.

Car Spotting @ SXSW – Austin, TX

Car Spotting @ SXSW - Austin, TX

SXSW is always good for some high quality car spotting. And only in Austin do you see a Mercury Grand Marquis convertible with TVs behind the headrests. Love those wheels too, reminiscent of a gladiator’s chariot from ancient Rome. Spotted some other beauties as well, including a screaming orange Murcielago.

GMC 1/2 Ton Pickup Truck - Broadway @ 25th Street

It doesn’t get a lot tougher than this 69/70 GMC pick-up. Love the chunky tires and fabulously vintage orange paint. This truck is a real workhorse that has only increased its cool factor as the years and miles and dings have piled on. Much respect.

Audi S6 Avant – Central Park West, NYC

Audi S6 Avant - Central Park West, NYC

This old school S6 Avant was all snowed in on Central Park West following the many storms that recently hit NYC. I’m not sure how long it’s been sitting there but the owner has his work cut out for him. There’s not much that Audi’s iconic Quattro AWD system can do for this skunkworks sleeper station wagon short of melting the snow with burnt rubber. Cool car though, you don’t see these a whole hell of a lot.

Photo Shoot: Lambo Aventador LP700-4 Roadster – Rhinebeck, NY

Photo Shoot: Lambo Aventador LP700-4 Roadster - Rhinebeck, NY

Man on the Move has a long standing relationship with the speed junkies at Lamborghini. In 2012 we tested their then-new rear wheel drive Gallardo, known internally as the LP550-2, and did a bitchin’ photo shoot at a Long Island airfield for WIRED. This time around, we were of the good fortune to have been given the keys (temporarily) to their all-new V-12 flagship roadster, the Aventador LP700-4. You can read the full review we did for WIRED here but check out this crop of amazing snaps from the lens of the talented Sean Smith. The photos were taken at a host of locations in the Dutchess County area, including various Rhinebeck properties and architectural gems lining the campus of Bard College.

Enjoy!
