IEDEI: The Greatest Hits megapost.

To celebrate crossing the 1 million visit mark this week, this is a monster post of some of my favourite photos and automobiles posted on IEDEI from the past couple of years.  I originally started this blog to catalogue my favourite automobiles and photographs, and it is still what I do—-however along the way I have met lots of great people, shared lots of interesting stories, and have learned even more than I already knew about the world of motoring.

srcs: too many to list! each source is listed in the original IEDEI post where these pics are taken from.

fotos of the day. vintage sebring/daytona

Nigel Smuckatelli has catalogued many of his photos from the 60s and 70s on his flickr page, and in his own words: “Most of my photos were taken as a college student who volunteered as a safety official at the 24 Hours of Daytona and 12 Hours of Sebring in the late 60’s and early 70’s.”

He has literally thousands of photos on his page….a good percentage of them are photos he took, although mixed in there are also stock and obtained photos…..but well worth sifting through them…so make sure you follow the link above! Here are some of his original photographs i loved:

slow week.

I started a new job towards the end of last week—-and my time has been quite consumed over the past week.  Apologies for little to no IEDEI updates.  To make it up to you, here is a megapost with plenty of things which have been consuming my daydreams all week.

cheers—Syed

Maserati……Ramblin

This video was posted on Vimeo, and I dunno much about the video….aside from the fact that it’s great! Love it.  It might be a commercial for the Quattroporte—judging by the outro….

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Maserati introduces the Granturismo MC

1291_granturismo20mc20-2021

Readied for the FIA GT4 Cup, in which participants are generally privately held and run teams using lightly modified/tweaked street cars on the track, Maserati has introduced that GT MC ‘race’ version of the Granturismo S road car.

I wasn’t font of the Granturismo when it was first launched, but it’s really grown on me these days!

More info on the car with specs follow here… Continue reading

Maserati driving gloves

Maserati driving gloves

So i lost my dunhill driving gloves sometime back in February. Actually i lost one side, i still have the other side…..i’m hoping the side i lost turns up unexpectedly.

Meanwhile, check out these sweet Maserati driving gloves! I can almost smell the leather just by looking at the dark blue stitched leather and seeing that glorious Maserati trident logo……hotness. Not cheap, but did you really think Maserati driving gloves would be? With shipping to the US, they come out to about $180. That hurts, but still is tempting.

ALSO, they are available here for $125, from a Maserati Dealer in Texas.  (with an extremely unprofessional, pixelated photo! ha):

the stunning Iso Grifo.

The most famous italian car driven with american balls was the DeTomaso Pantera (imo), however this must be one of the most beautiful; the Iso Grifo.  Produced between 1963 and 1974, and under the beautiful shell lies a heart of pure american muscle.  Corvette V8s ranging from 300 to 350hp.  This is as beautiful as any Maserati or Ferrari of the 60s or 70s, in my opinion—and was fast as hell as well.  In the 70s, the top speed of this badass was documented as 171 mph.

They’re rare as hell now, and are starting to fetch more and more money…but that won’t stop me from posting a few choice photos of the car i’m talking about now will it!
