The Geneva motorshow not only has a bunch of cool new cars but they also have some really cool race cars including many historical cars. Legends like the 787B, and Rothman’s Porsche. Since we got a ton of photos of the cars at the show why not do a post about it?
The Ford Mavrick is pretty far removed from a muscle or sports car but with some work and imagination it turns out a pretty sweet little pro touring is hiding under all that compact car make up. The Mavrick did have an option for the 302 cubic inch V8 however most were equipped with a …View full post
Today saw the official inauguration at the Ferrari Museum in Maranello of the “Ferrari Supercar. Technology. Design. Myth” exhibition which includes the new LaFerrari, unveiled just a couple of days ago at the Geneva Motor Show, as well as all of the other limited edition special series cars that helped establish the Prancing Horse legend. …View full post
The General was well represented at the WHDOW Reunion from old to new there was a little bit of everything for bowtie fans. The only thing hotter then the weather were the cars and if I had to guess I’d say GM was the most represented of the big three at the show. Now we …View full post
Gassers are a very unique breed of drag racer. It is always a nice treat to see one at a show, but it’s even cooler to see them run at the strip. Well I was tooling around the internet when I stumbled across this really cool video of some vintage gassers running at the strip.
Cue the Bob Seger music because you can’t keep a good Chevy down. Like a Rock the ZR1 Blue Devil was pulled from that sink hole in the Corvette museum today and after a quick charge of the battery she started right up and drove off. Ok, there was more oil under the car then in some Saudi oil fields but still it’s a victory of Corvette vs nature.
We’ve got video of the moments occasion just after the jump.
March is here but you could hardly tell it sitting at IG HQ. Luckily the snow wasn’t nearly as bad as it was supposed to be, but another day of shoveling is not exactly how I pictures my first Sunday of March going. Still it means one day closer to car show season and that’s alright by me.
As is the case with the winter this week on IG featured a lot of industry news and new car stuff. I am glad you guys like that sort of thing, or at least the visitor numbers suggest you do because it’s really not what I love doing. It just fills the time between car shows. However there were some fun stories this week and some good video and while we may have taken a day off in the middle there ultimately we still had a good week. I could rant on more about the snow but I’m sure no one wants to hear that so let’s get on with the week in review.
The Volvo Estate concept is probably not what we’d normally cover here but I think it’s cool. It’s very styled and oh yeah it’s a wagon. Volvo has been making waves as of late with the SC90 as well as their other offerings. They certainly know how to get their attention with concepts.
The interior of the Volvo Estate concept is over the top crazy. The kind of over the top crazy that is cool. Like a lot of auto makers Volvo is moving to a touch screen interface. I don’t if that’s a good thing. In a lot of places, like here in Illinois, laws are being enacted to stop distracted driving. I gotta think a big ole computer screen is going to take your eyes off the road a lot more then a typical radio knob. However touch screens are the future. Not that my opinion matters, but if it did I’d tell Volvo I like the Estate Concept.
