1957 VW Oval Window Bug is Just About Right

http://www.motorethos.com/2014/09/1957-vw-oval-window-bug-is-just-about.html

Everyone loves a properly sorted Bug and if you're in the market then look no further. This turnkey 1957 Volkswagen oval window Beetle has all the right tidbits that you'll need in your classic daily driver. We love the subdued yellow paint that appears to have been thoroughly applied with no obvious signs of over-spray. The Bug is probably the only car in the world that is at home in any solid or two-tone paint combination.

Dream Like a Champion: Chris Forsberg

Lately, I've been dreaming about owning a 370z. With it's new styling and throwback looks to the original 240z, it's quite the good looking, over all driver's car that I'm looking for. Here's a video featuring Formula Drift driver Chris Forsberg, which mirrors exactly what I've been going through every time I see one of these pass me on the 5.

The crowd is seduced with polished chrome, perfect paint, untouched leather, and the spectacular views to Stillwater Cove.

2014 Concours d'Lemons: The Armpit of Monterey Car Week

http://www.motorethos.com/2014/08/2014-concours-dlemons-armpit-of.htmlThe Concours d'Lemons is the unrelenting oil stain to the otherwise polished blue blood events of the peninsula during Monterey Car Week. This is a car show for the downtrodden and destitute vehicles that saw their best days behind them as they rolled off the assembly line. None were exciting to look at then, and time hasn't been kind to them since. But through this egregious event their owners get to drag them off the driveway for ugliest bragging rights.
