LaLD Car Week 1960's: Italian Jewel

LaLD Car Week 1960's: Italian Jewel

I’m not sure it’s possible for me to do any LaLD Car Week without posting this car. So here she is again. The 1967 Alfa Romeo 33 Stradale Prototipo. To me, the most beautiful car...........

............. in the world.

This post is all pictures, but feel free to learn some background (and past shots) here and here .

This 1/18 by AutoArt is so good that my wife has let me keep...

LaLD Car Week 1970's: GOAT

LaLD Car Week 1970's: GOAT

It probably shouldn’t come as a surprise that I’d post a 917 today. Well to me, the Porsche 917 is the all time racing GOAT. Two succesful seasons on the endurance racing circuit caused the FIA to change the rules to outlaw the car. Two succesful (let’s be real, completely dominant) seasons in Can-Am right after that caused the no-holds-barred racing division to ban the car as well.

I could...

LaLD Car Week: Wolf of the Autobahn

LaLD Car Week: Wolf of the Autobahn

Made right at the beginning of the 80's, this 1 of 1 car is still to this day likely the most ridiculous street-legal car to hit the German Autobahn.

Walter Wolf was a racing and oil tycoon and needed something appropriate for his status to tear up the countryside with.

At the time the Porsche 935 was all the rage. Cool bodywork, a widened rear-track, and twin-turbo power pumping out over...

LaLD Car Week 1990's: Winged Wednesday

Had to bust this one out again after being inspired by alsosprachalso’s post a month or two ago. With all the R34/R35's yesterday, I have a feeling today will see a lot of McLaren F1's. This is the second one at least...

I think we all know the story of this car. The story of the car that shouldn’t have won and shouldn’t have raced in the first place. With pressure from the owners, McLaren...

LaLD Car Week 2000s: Viper

LaLD Car Week 2000s: Viper

Decided to bring this one out for a reshoot. And yes it counts as the 2nd gen viper stopped production in 2002 ;)

The 2nd gen viper saw the advent of the coule and personally my favorite version 0f the car. It saw a bump of 50bhp to 450 and still retained all the rawness of the first car, just with a center exhaust instead of below the door sills. That way you wouldn’t burn your legs.

This...

LaLD Car Week: King of the Mountain

LaLD Car Week: King of the Mountain

The Pikes Peak Hillclimb is one of the most intense races out there. Like Isle of Man TT but up a mountain. It’s one of the only races where you can go balls to the wall and run something truly unlimited. Carving out more than 150 turns over nearly 12.5 miles and gaining 4,720 feet in elevation to end at 14,115 ft, Pikes Peak is the greatest hillclimb out there. If I’m not mistaken, it’s the...

Porsche 917 Re-shoot

Porsche 917 Re-shoot

I don’t think I’d ever tire of shooting this car.

Here it is shot in a different way.

Hopefully in the next week there will be a new horse in my stable...

Cheers!

Another try at the x-ray thing - Land of the rising Sun-day

I had tried this in the past with a dark background. Let’s just say the white background is the way to go...

And the shots I used to make this one:

Another angle.

And finally my inspiration:

This guy has been shooting Canepas cars in this style and they’re all excellent. I recommend giving him a follow.

Cheers!

Custom Preparations

Been a while since I finished a custom and I’ve decided this week I’m gonna get back to it. Luckily I got some free stuff from work to help with keeping everything organized :D

Sorry for blurry pics... the phone isn’t the best option.

Got these awesome slide-out drawers for hardware. We were going to throw them away at work. I gave them a new home.

New Ultima - the RS

New Ultima - the RS

Finally they’ve come out with a ‘new’ model rather than just an updated GTR. For those not in the know, the Ultima GTR was basically a kit car (or think something like SSC that made the Ultimate Aero) that was actually comparable to the supercars of its day. I remember it holding the 0-100-0 record at one point. Jon Olsson had a crazy bodied one reminiscent of the audi R18.

Now they have the...

My top 5 automotive events to see before I die. 

My top 5 automotive events to see before I die. 

This is my list, but what’s yours?

1. 24 Heures du Mans

For me it’s the most significant race of every year. Nothing pushes a car like racing hard for 24 hours. LMP1 is constantly pushing the barrier of technology. The multiple classes of cars. The fanfare. The history. For me this is my ultimate automotive dream.

2. Goodwood Revival

Not the hillclimb, but the revival. A british friend of mine...
