Some information about the Lotus Evora via Wikipedia:

Evora is the first product of a five-year plan started in 2006 to expand the Lotus line-up beyond its current track-specialized offerings, with the aim of making Evora a somewhat of a more practical road car that would appeal to the mainstream. As such it is a larger car than recent Elise models and its derivatives (Exige, Europa S, etc.), with an unladen weight of 1,383 kg (3,049 lb).
It is currently the only Lotus model with a 2+2 configuration, although it has been announced that it will also be offered in a two-seater configuration, referred to as the “Plus Zero” option. It along with the BMW i8 are the only 2+2 mid-engined coupés on sale. The interior is larger to allow taller persons to fit, such as Lotus CEO Mike Kimberley, and two 6’5″ (195.6 cm) tall people.
The cooled boot behind the engine is large enough to fit a set of golf clubs, although Lotus Design Head Russell Carr denies that this was intentional. Lotus intends Evora to compete with different market sectors including the Porsche Cayman.
The Evora is constructed from a modular lightweight bonded aluminium structure with composite body panels. It features forged aluminium double wishbone suspension with Bilstein high-performance gas dampers and Eibach coaxial coil springs. Steering is by hydraulically assisted power steering. The Evora is equipped with a mid-mounted, transverse, Toyota-sourced 3.5-litre 24-valve V6 engine. The Evora S uses the same engine but with a supercharger.

Rolls-Royce Ghost

The Rolls-Royce is the pinnacle of uber-luxury. Spotted this black model in Hollywood.


A little information about the Ghost via Wikipedia.

The Rolls-Royce Ghost is a luxury saloon from Rolls-Royce Motor Cars. The “Ghost” nameplate, named in honour of the Silver Ghost, a car first produced in 1906, was announced in April 2009 at the Auto Shanghai show.  During development, the Ghost was known as the “RR04”. Designed as a smaller, “more measured, more realistic car” than the Phantom, aiming for a lower price category for Rolls-Royce models, the retail price is around £170,000. The production model was officially unveiled at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show. The 17 cm longer option Ghost Extended Wheelbase was introduced in 2011.

Early 70’s Dodge D-Series Pickup

There is something about old pickup trucks; they just have so much character.

Some information about the early 1970’s Dodge Pickups via Wikipedia:

A redesign of the D Series for 1972 that lasted until 1980 introduced a more rounded look. This redesign for the third generation, that spanned until 1993 with minor changes, included new features such as an independent front suspension and pocketed taillights (the distinctive reverse on top lights were recessed to .25 in (6.4 mm) to avoid damage in loading docks and confined spaces). Styling cues, such as the scalloped hood and rounded fender wells, were similar to the rounded, smooth look of the 1971 Plymouth Satellite. These trucks were built with a considerable amount of galvanized steel to resist rust and corrosion making them very durable. Because of this, today these trucks make great restoration projects.

1968 Ford Mustang Coupe

The iconic classic muscle car; the Ford Mustang Coupe.  Although not the venerable Fastback from the late 60’s (seen in movies such as “Bullitt”), the Mustang Coupe holds it’s own in the hearts of many.


Some information about the Mustang via Wikipedia.

The Ford Mustang was brought out five months before the normal start of the 1965 production year. The early production versions are often referred to as “1964½ models” but all Mustangs were advertised, VIN coded and titled by Ford as 1965 models, though minor design updates for fall 1965 contribute to tracking 1964½ production data separately from 1965 data with production beginning in Dearborn, Michigan on March 9, 1964; the new car was introduced to the public on April 17, 1964[11] at the New York World’s Fair.
