Rough & Tumble Trucks of the Summer – Anytown, USA

September 11th, 2012 by Stu

It’s that magical time of year when car-enthused beach bums peel back the tarp, crack open the garage door and set out to strut their surf-rack-touting stuff 4×4 style. And these are not just any 4x4s. No prissy Range Rovers here folks. Let’s be clear, these are amazingly charming, super rugged 4x4s of the old school variety. Defenders and Harvesters and CJs, oh my.

I spotted these Summer loving beauties [above and below] posing on the streets of Montauk, East Hampton and Newport Beach throughout the season. Summer might be a blur in the rearview but maybe these toasty photos will ease the pain.

Enjoy.

International Harvester Scout II – NW 18th & Johnson, Portland (OR)

June 1st, 2010 by Emir

I don’t know too much about these little utes but their muscular looks, short-wheel-base, huge tires and questionable ride quality have always fascinated me. Of course, I would always feel more comfortable around a Defender, Wrangler or a Gelaendwagen. Their lean aesthetic and purposeful/functional design epitomize off-road vehicles as far as I’m concerned. But in spite of their misleading design (muscular off-road vehicle with a few soft curves), I’m sure these Scouts have something to say. Like a small dump truck that’s being forced into a car body…

International Harvester Scout II – East 18th Street, NYC

August 10th, 2009 by Ian

Scout 1

The Scout was International Harvester’s answer to the CJ or Civilian Jeep. It offered up all the bare bones appeal and off road ability you could handle albeit in a streetable package that was comfortable for everyday motoring. Unlike the Jeep and similarly intentioned Geländewagen, both of which started life as military vehicles, the Scout was engineered from the ground up to be a road going passenger vehicle. In fact, the Scout and Scout II were among the pioneering SUVs that contributed to America’s love affair with the species.

Ford Bronco 302 – Mercer Street, NYC

April 23rd, 2009 by Ian

ford-bronco-302
This utterly immaculate Ford Bronco doesn’t look like it spends much time on the trail, but it sure is pretty. Short of the one OJ drove on that fateful day, the Bronco nameplate lost much of its cool factor after the 1st generation (1966-1977) model pictured here. Now that automakers have embraced small crossovers and utes, perhaps it is time to bring back Bronco for another go around.
