Last Call- Formula One’s Biggest Fan Edition

Robert Emslie November 25, 2014 Last Call

F1 Fan

The 1978 Brabham BT46 F1 car – infamously known as the Fan Car – arose form the fertile mind of engineer Gordon Murray. The car was designed in answer to the the dominant Lotus ground effects cars and it won its first contest, when Niki Lauda drove it to winner’s circle at Anderstorp. That was its only victory however, as the Brabham voluntarily withdrew the car from competition after complaints that it was a danger to following drivers.

Last Call- Hot Wheels, Hot Licks Edition

Robert Emslie November 24, 2014 Last Call

PJ Harvey

PJ Harvey is a rock star. She’s also a gifted song writer, an actress, as well as a painter and sculptor. In fact, with all she has accomplished you might not think that PJ Harvey could be any more cool. And then you see her wearing a belt made out of Hot Wheels cars, and realize she just took cool to the next level.

Last Call- Beauty and the Beast Edition

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.

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?
