Ride Along for the Targa Florio’s Last Hurrah

These onboards from the Targa Florio during the practice period are always harrowing. When you see the occasional shepherd and daily Sicilian traffic it’s not hard to see why this footage from 1973 was the last year of the event.

Guarantees Unstinting Devotion


Excitement is standard equipment! The small blue car lurking behind that ’61 Corvette is a 1927 Bugatti.

This Tactic (Still) Doesn’t Work


The new Boxter is lovely. But sit one next to the old Porsche 718 and it looks like garbage. We’ve talked before about marketers doing this “let’s photograph the new one next to the old one and show our lineage and the power of our history” tactic before.

Nürburgring 1936

A bit more standard a map than I usually showcase on our Track Maps of the Past series, but how can you not love the Südschleife?

Art Appreciation: Simca Deho Special


I’m having trouble finding verifiable information on this gorgeous little barchetta. Previous sellers have said she has LeMans and Mille Miglia provenance, but I’m not finding it immediately and we’ve all known sellers that were prone to exaggeration.

A History of Scalextric

If you’re lucky enough to have a new slot car track under your tree this holiday season, why not throw this documentary about the early years of Scalextric on while your setting up Eau Rouge?

Sam Posey on LeMans

“… nothing else in the rich and varied world of motorsports means as much.” Such a magnificent summary of the grandeur of Le Mans from the former Can Am and Formula 1 driver.

Scenes from the 2015 CycleKart Tieton Grand Prix

In case you’re still looking for a project as the winter season sets in, consider this: There might not be a better way to scratch your vintage racing itch than preparing for the 2016 CycleKart season.

Ebay Spotting: Mille Miglia Ephemera


I’d love to say I just stumbled upon this stuff, but the truth is I’m typing “Mille Miglia” or “Targa Florio” into eBay’s search fields more often than I’d like to admit.

Milne Bros. – Pasadena

Why Walk When a Delahaye is Available?

Ordinarily I wouldn’t subject you to an 11 minute Johnny Walker ad, but maybe if advertising as short film as love letter to vintage racing is a success we’ll see more of these and fewer terrible ads.

Reader Film from the Drags ’56—’65

Rudi wrote in with his footage from a variety of drag races saying, “Don’t know if you are into drags, but I just posted what I shot way back then”.

Porsche Museum’s “Sound Night”

Porsche already does a good job of getting their historic racing cars out to the track and in front of fans—but I’ve never heard of an event like this one and I hope to be there for the next one.

1959 Santa Barbara and Riverside Road Races

I was at a concert last night and invariably as the artist takes the stage, people’s phones come out and they start filming.

Factories at Work: Lotus in the Elan Years


Given the 11 year run of the Elan, we can really see in these disperate images from a variety of periods in the early 60s and 70s how much the culture changed within the Lotus facilites, from white shop coats to rock-and-rollers.

You Will Love it More!


Do you like to drive? With a Nardi steering wheel you will love it more! You can read this post in its original form on The Chicane.

Porsche 917 Doors For the Wall


This place recognizes Porsche 917 body panels for what they are—works of art. These would make a lovely addition to the garage wall..

The Demolition of AVUS’s Nordkurve


I’m sure someone thought there was a good reason for this. You can read this post in its original form on The Chicane.

A Collection of Mid-50s California Racing Film

Great stuff here from the 1956 running of the Santa Barbara Road Races, Torrey Pines, and Pebble Beach.

Let’s Build Monza.


Anyone have some land to donate to the cause of properly replicating Monza with the banking? After all, this doesn’t look so hard.
