I just found an old DVD with about 2,700 photos I took between 2001 and 2006. It’s been fascinating going through them — mostly because it shows how different my life was more than a decade ago. No kid, very few limits on my spending, and not much direction in life other than buying cars and clothes. Hmm. Maybe nothing’s changed at all. I don’t know.
This shot is me doing a brake-torque on my old friend Berg’s 300SEL 6.3, some time in 2005. It’s particularly relevant because Berg and I just collaborated on a new article for Hagerty Magazine this past Thursday. If you like classic American luxury sedans, or if you’re interested in the very best this country can make right now in 2017, it will reward your attention.
In the meantime, let’s check out this week’s contributions, including two print pieces for R&T that just went online.
For R&T Web, I wrote about five ways to improve modern cars on the cheap. We also had two print-only pieces from last month’s issue released: 1989 was the Year Of The Japanese Car and a review of the Alfa Romeo Giulia Ti.
Oh, and here’s a bonus photo from those carefree days: $155,000 worth of Volkswagens in one driveway.
