the illustrations of Peter Hutton.

These are very cool and very original.  I especially love the way he annotates information about the cars above the angular cutaway sketches.  The Maserati 250 T-shirt is quite nice, although too red for me to order unfortunately.  Prints and cards are quite affordable—a nice place to pick up a few gifts for yourself or a petrolhead in your lives.

art of the day. Vespa 400.

Yes, there was a car made with the Vespa badge, called the 400.  rear engined and TINY.  Not much of a car i’m afraid, but this kitsch-y page from a vintage manual is worth a look for a bit of entertainment!

“automotive monogamy” by Matteo Ferrari

I love these photos.  I first came across Matteo’s photos in one of my automotive magazines “Intersection”, however Matteo Ferrari is known for this type of time lapsed photography of cars and their owners—-showing the often long-term relationships with their automobiles. After owning the TT for 8 years, I am currently finding myself acknowledging the deep bonds between cars and their owners.

Here are some of the photos he has done… from his website
