Got any cool car photos? Share ’em on the InMyGarage Flickr Group and you just might win a prize. Group member John Hietter was in the right place at the right time to get this shot of a city bus rolling past a Lamborghini LP640 Roadster. We love the way this Lambo creeps out of the shadows. Great capture… enjoy your car care prize!

Oddballs: Top 5 Three-Wheeled Vehicles

It’s no secret that even-number-wheeled vehicles rule the streets. So, on the rare occasion when you see something with three, you’ve gotta take the time to give it a second look! I’ve dug through the oddball archive to bring you my Top 5 three-wheelers. What would you add to the list?

Car Quotable – War on Speed Edition

Car Quotable – War on Speed Edition

The Internet’s been buzzing about Jeremy Clarkson’s final segment on this week’s episode of Top Gear. With the so-called “War on Speed” raging strong, this older quote from him falls right into place: “You can’t rationalize cars like these. They’re not something you buy with your head, you buy them with your heart because you love them, and who can explain love?”

Report from the Road: Intermeccanica Tour 2009

Report from the Road: Intermeccanica Tour 2009

Intermeccanica has been building specialty cars for the past 50 years. Founded by Frank Reisner in Turin Italy, their history is vast and interesting. Frank’s son Henry runs the company now, and every summer hosts a tour and BBQ to thank customers and friends for their business. This was the second tour I’ve attended, and the event was definitely one to remember.

My Great American Road Trip

My Great American Road Trip

We’ve all been on one. I’m sure if you think about the road trips you’ve taken, you can’t help but crack a smile at the adventures. What better thing to do in these challenging times than get back to enjoying simple pleasures, close to home, with family and friends? That’s what I was thinking when a late night eBay purchase led to one of my favorite family vacations with my four children!

They were lined up around the block most of the morning. Hot rods, customs, and classics of every flavor descended on the Griot’s Garage shop this morning for a poker run hosted by the King’s Men Car Club. Enjoy the photos, and be sure to check out the Goodguys show this weekend to see these (and tons of other) awesome rides.

Relics – 1972 Maserati Ghibli

Relics – 1972 Maserati Ghibli

We spotted this rare Maserati Ghibli at last year’s Seattle Italian Concours. What initially struck us were the big, bold lines and curves! Ghibli’s were built to be a comfortable “gentleman’s GT”, competing with the raw track power of the Ferrari Daytona. We love the statement this car makes… you don’t see curves like this on your Mom’s minivan. Let us know what you think!

There’s just so much that’s right about this shot from our Flickr Group member, Chad Lunn. Great perspective and composition, awesome contrast, and just enough black to let us know this menacing hot rod is not to be trifled with. Thanks for being part of our group, Chad. Hope you enjoy your car care prize!

On the Lot: Superformance Cobra

On the Lot: Superformance Cobra

I had to grab the camera when I heard this ‘66 Cobra replica roaring in. I took my time enjoying all the angles while the owner shopped in our retail store. Superformance did an excellent job replicating the handiwork done by the original builders back in ’66… had me fooled until the owner, John, shared the car’s story.
