    Living in Southern California, I am guilty of taking exotic car sightings for granted. At any given time here in behind the Orange Curtain, I can be at a stop light with latest from Maranello on one side and something crafted by the crew from Crewe on the other. I am not saying I get…

    Thanks to Josh for pointing out this EXCELLENT 1978 Lincoln Continental. Apparently it is the Cartier Design series edition which is probably the real inspiration behind the Cartier American Tank line of watches… A daily-driver with under 100K miles on a 460 4bbl engine?

    Everyone thinks they can drive well… only few actually can. One such Hoon (yes capital H for him) goes by the name Rob Krider.
