Last Call- Beauty and the Beast Edition

Robert Emslie November 21, 2014 Last Call

DSCN5394

We’re going to leave you this week with this shot from the Los Angeles Auto Show. I liked the way the model’s dress matched the Jag in both color and allure. I think all auto show front-liners should, in some way, visually match the cars with which they are paired. That would go a long way towards making the world a better place.

Last Call- Tight Nuts Edition

Robert Emslie November 20, 2014 Last Call

Tight Nuts

While the “WD” in WD 40 stands for Water Displacement, the venerable spray has a multitude of uses, everything from quieting squeaky hinges to removing crayon from a slew of different surfaces. Add to that a sense of corporate humor as evidenced by this 1964 promotional piece, and there’s no reason not to always keep a can handy. Of course despite all that, there’s always this problem.

Hey, we may be well into the Fall, but this gouache by artist Bruce Kaiser is pure Summer fun. At least it makes me feel all warm inside.

You know, you could always have a dull old motorcycle and sidecar, oar, you could have this Canoe-equipped Rudge.

Last Call- Carbon Fiber Edition

SnakesAlive

The Koenigsegg Agera S Hundra is an amazing car no matter what the angle, but this shot, by photographer Enzo Lo, highlights the organic nature of the car’s shape and the patterning of its carbon fiber shell. It’s almost like staring into the eye of a pit viper, inches from your face.

Last Call- No Matter Where You Go, There You Are Edition

Robert Emslie November 13, 2014 Last Call

where the hell am i

Robert Frost is perhaps best known for poetry that inspires self reflection on long solitary walks. In fact, I don’t know if America’s Poet ever even owned a car. And yet, we’ve all been inspired by his admonition to strike out on our own, choosing to take the unpopular path. Yeah, see where that gets you.

Last Call- Better Looking Than a Ridgeline Edition

Despite its rumply tonneau and excessive lift-over height, this custom Honda Civi-Camino looks totally like a car that should have been. In fact, I don’t think I’ve ever seen a more righteous-looking backyard pickupification of a car. Have you?

Last Call- Back to the Futura Edition

Robert Emslie November 11, 2014 Last Call

1955 Futura

Everyone knows that TV’s Batmobile was built on the 1955 Lincoln Futura concept car, but how many of us have ever gone back to that original Ghia-built car to appreciate it in all its non-Batman glory? The concept, which was designed by Lincoln stylists Bill Schmidt and John Najjar Ferzely, was in fact far more audacious than the Batmobile. George Barris actually toned down some of the more extreme elements such as the flying fins and prominent chrome trim when turning the concept into the caped crusader’s ride. Looking at the original today, the Futura does come across as the Fifties incarnate, but still it to this day offers visual POW!, ZING!, and WOW!

Last Call- Buttoned Up Edition

Robert Emslie November 10, 2014 Last Call

Stickers

Do you have a lot of those blanked-off buttons in your car? You know, the ones that are for the features you were to cheap to order, and which are a constant glaring reminder of your miserliness? Well you can mask your shame with these awesome stickers. Designed to fit a MKV 5 and MKVI VW Golfs, they’ll likely work on other cars too. Trunk Monkey FTW!
