Sometimes I really don’t get executive decisions made by major car companies. I guess we never really see the whole story, but there are always cars that are made, but never sold in the states. Cars that we would go absolutely crazy over. Car that WE DO go crazy over, and beg manufacturers to bring them to this country by creating threads on forums with hopes that someone, anyone would actually see that the car is actually wanted. Sure we look over the millions of dollars in crash test’s and so on, as well as the loss on sales of other cars, but isn’t the end all to make money? I digress. The car I am speaking of this time is the 2013 Toyota Mark X. Yes, it sure does look the same size of the Camry, but it looks 1000x’s better then any current Toyota (possibly excluding the FRS). Heck, throw on a set of wheels and a drop, and you have a serious head turner/daily driver. So toyota, WHY?
When I look at these classic Triumph’s, beautiful is ALWAYS the first word that comes out of my mouth. There is just something about the simplicity of the lines. Or maybe is the leather accents. But it’s unmistakable whenever you see one done this well. It’s a work of art. I’m dying to own one. Anyone have more info on this particular Triumph? I don’t see a throttle cable and the leather wraps on the handle bars are a thing of beauty!
I really love the video’s that are done by Depth of Speed. I really goes beyond just showing a video on a nice car and bring out the story and life of the owner. It just happens that the car featured is one of the most beautiful cars ever made. I mean even down to the color combination. I absolutely love the full red leather trimmed interior with the bits of wood and chrome. It truly is a thing of beautiful. To make things better the car is actually driven! I’m sure it had it’s flaws but the owner loves driving it and enjoys the car. I get the people truly see cars like art and just enjoy looking at them, but you have to respect a man who doesn’t care about that and drives it like it should.
Decided to go back to my roots today. Simple old school Volkswagen’s. There is just something about the beautiful, simple lines of the small bumper mk2. It says a lot when you don’t have to do much to make a car look really good. The example below is basically a stock mk2 with a drop and a rare set of BBS wheels and a clean body. That’s it. And I could honestly stare at it forever. Beautiful.
I love running into cars I’ve never seen before. The yearly JCCA New Years Meet in Japan always brings out my favorite cars in the world; Japanese classics. There is always a car that pops up on the blogs that I’ve never seen before. Autongraphic did a bunch of posts of the show and this TE47 Sprinter Trueno GT caught my eye. Beautiful classic Japanese lines with a “bug-eye” looking front end. I love it! He had mentioned it was for sale for around $12k USD, if only I had a connect in Japan! SMH!
I’m not going to be doing much talking in this post. It’s arguably the most beautiful and timeless car in the world. And a perfect picture taken of it on a bridge over a peaceful river. The sun is hitting the car perfectly. Ah man, I could stare at this for days.
