One of THE coolest chronograph Heuer watches known as the Silverstone has been launched as a limited edition reissue!  So exciting! What’s not so exciting is the price tag.  $6500.  Time to sell a kidney?

BMW 5-series generations.

I can’t really be arsed to write about the current leakage of photos regarding the ‘NEW” BMW 5-Series…..because it’s boring.

What I do know, is that previous generations of 5-series have NOT been boring.  My absolute favourites are the first 2 (E12 and E28). Thus the most exciting part of the press release is actually the photo of ALL the 5-series generations together! Good wallpaper for you cuckoo 5-series fans.

I really dig TAG Heuer watches….always have and ever since i got my Monza a few years ago around the time of my wedding—-i’ve started to love them even more!  I found this website devoted to restoring and selling gorgeous pre-“TAG” watches made by Heuer.  As some of you may know, they added to the “TAG” to the beginning of the name after TAG (an auto/racing parts manufacturer) purchased the Heuer watch company in the 80s.

Heuerboy sells some amazing examples of vintage 60s, 70s, and 80s Heuer watches, alongside ‘other’ brands as well—-as well as some really cool stopwatches and other accessories from the vintage side of the world.  Prices are not exactly cheap when converting to the dollar, but i guess if you’ve got the loot—it would be well worth it to spend 950 UK pounds on a vintage black Monza (as pictured above) rather than $1500 on just another run-of-the-mill watch.

anyway—the Heuerboy website itself isn’t exactly a nice website, but his work on these older Heuer watches looks pretty damn impressive, and just to see some nice pictures of his selection is uttery great!   So check out the site, and start saving up some change!

BMW 635csi vs. 645ci…generations.

I used to hate the new 6-series when it first came out, but these days i really am quite fond of it…..Bangle made me a believer!  The original 6-series was a true classic though, and it’s nice to see a pic of them together.  I wish they were the same colour though……

From the days when NASCAR had soul……

633-vijpg

1971, to be more specific.  Isn’t it amazing how far NASCAR has fallen? I can’t even bear to watch it anymore….full of country music, cowboy hats, media, music videos, cheesy collage videos—–the horror of it all.  I grew up watching NASCAR on those weird lonely saturday afternoons in the early-mid 80s, I remember rooting for Richard Petty, because he had the coolest looking car, a blue and red #43 Pontiac Grand Prix! fantastic.

Maybe one day NASCAR will come back to being cool again, maybe when carmakers don’t just tack on those cheesy ‘shells’ of production cars on top of em…maybe when it gets it soul back….if it ever does.

Camaro Vs. Camaro.

I was born and raised in Detroit. I know what an original late 60s Camaro is supposed to look like, and while Chevrolet can desperately try to associate this new 2010 Chevy Camaro as a throwback to the original, it is clearly NOT a clone of the original.

The recent release of the Dodge Challenger, was a blatant style tribute to the original 197o Challenger, although as previously discussed on IEDEI—not an especially accurate or interesting design job.

The 2010 Chevy Camaro is a robotic, hi-tech, warped, twisted, version of the original Chevy Camaro.  I know for a fact (from people who work close to GM), that when this Camaro was designed as a concept a few years ago for the North American International Auto Show—its conception was rushed and pushed out to the public without putting much care into the design. Fortunately for GM, the design was successful with the Auto Show crowd—–the same sad crowd who wait in lines to sit in cars like the Dodge Avenger. Not really the crowd you want telling you what to put in production, is it?

Either way, the new car will sell by the bucketloads, and for Detroit’s sake—i do hope GM recover from their dire puddle they’re sitting in at the moment. I hope it shakes them up, and they stop producing rubbish cars and get back to the glory of the 50s and 60s.
