VW is currently running an ad campaign here in the U.S. that builds off of the brand’s long standing punch buggy tradition whereby one persons smacks the other when an original VW Beetle rolls by. All you do is call out the color, “punch buggy turquoise” in this case, and then give your pal/spouse/parent a good shot in the arm. It’s good clean American fun. That arm of yours would be a permanent shade of black and blue if this game were played in Cusco, the historic capital of the Inca Empire located in southeastern Peru. As one travel blogger put it, “Ever wondered why you never see a VW Beetles on the road these days? I can tell you why. Because they’re all in Peru. Every second car here is a Beetle. Pimped out, clapped out, they’re all here. The roads here are terrible, but it seems German automotive enginneering is the always the answer.” And there you have it.
Thanks for the great photos Jeff!

This could easily serve as a 1960s post card. The B/W coloring, vintage set of wheels and beautiful suburban back drop harks back to a simpler time. Another great find from our good friend, fellow photographer and purveyor of 35mm film Aaron Stern.
I was going through my files and stumbled onto these amazing pictures taken during a muscle car comparo I wrote for the Summer 2009 issue of Men’s Fitness. The photo editor decided against using these images, instead opting for stock photography to accompany the review. He fed me some line about the gloomy weather not being sunny enough. Does anyone know what he was thinking? We all know that wet muscle cars look better than dry muscle cars any day of the week. They have more attitude. And the grey skies add a menacing effect to the trio’s already aggressive styling. I hope you enjoy them.

Flagler Drive Waterfront was packed with precious metal last weekend for Supercar Experience Palm Beach, also known as Supercar Weekend. The event series, which also includes tour stops in other well-to-do locations like New Orleans and The Hamptons, is a unique experience to say the least. After all, where on earth can you see this much horsepower, hand crafted coachwork and radar-touting cops in one place at one time. You can thank Florida-based sharp shooter and Man on the Move guest photographer Blake Simon for the exotic car porn to ensue after the jump.
