Garage Queens – Caddy Series 62 Coupe – W25th Street, NYC

March 16th, 2010 by Stu

This glorious 1954 Series 62 Coupe was parked all by its lonesome in a Chelsea area garage. Like many of the American land yachts from the day, it’s positively massive. Overall vehicle length is damn near 19 feet (that’s more than an Escalade) and curb weight is more than 4,300 pounds. Keep in mind this is a 2 door coupe! The price tag was equally grand for 1954 at around $3,800. I guess that tells you something about Cadillac’s former brand equity in this country. Feel free to weigh in below with your thoughts, rants and sentiments about a bygone era when cars had class, style, and distinction.

Jeep Wrangler – West 25th Street, NYC

We spotted Darth Vader’s Wrangler on W25th Street and it’s all business. Black wheels, matte black finish and enough auxiliary lighting to land a damn airplane. Overall a very dark and ominous affair to say the least. Check out the custom wheels inside those massive tires – we might like these better.

New York Tesla Gallery – West 25th Street, NYC

September 10th, 2009 by Ian

Tesla

Tesla’s Manhattan dealership is live and kicking and the less-is-more decor screams high priced artwork not electric sports car retailer. Although that seems to have been the point in Tesla choosing to open shop in Chelsea’s art district rather than the obvious Park Avenue (Ferrari/Maserati, Audi Forum, Mercedes) or “dealer row” locations that all the other brands have flocked to. They even go as far as to brand the dealership, which used to be an actual gallery, as the “New York Tesla Gallery”.

1967 Chevy Camaro SS – West 25th Street, NYC

May 8th, 2009 by Ian

1967-chevy-camaro-ssWith all the commotion about retro-inspired muscle from Detroit, it’s nice to gaze upon the inspiration now and again. Sporting arrest-me red paint, this gen 1 (1967-1969) Camaro looks ready to pounce on a drag strip near you. As any owner will tell you, the honkin V8s available in ’67 (350 cu in or 396 cu in) do not disappoint when it comes to smoky burnouts and general adolescent behavior.

Land Rover One Ten – West 25th Street, NYC

May 7th, 2009 by Ian

land-rover-one-tenThe Land Rover One Ten (introduced in 1983) is the predecessor to the more commonly known Defender 110.  The “Defender” series models were meant to be rock solid little utes that could tackle the toughest of terrains and look exceptionally cool while doing so. These ruggedly handsome  Land Rovers have amassed an army of passionate enthusiasts who keep demand and resale value shockingly high. We still have bragging rights though; the first Land Rover design was inspired by the original WWII era Jeep, made right here in the good old US of A.
