Red Poppy Car Show, 4/25/15

It’s nice when there’s a car show that is walking distance from your house. Slightly fewer logistics than, say, Detroit. That being said, Thing 1 accompanied me and pretty much bossed me around the whole time, so I didn’t get very many photos of all the classic cars lining the main drag in my town. […]

Too busy to talk! But feast your eyes upon these…

Cars and Coffee Austin – August 10, 2014

Ah, Cars and Coffee. The only Sunday of the month where I cheerfully rise “early.” Sunday mornings have been scorchers around here lately, but that’s nothing to a true car fan. Just add a little strategic hydration, and you are good to go. I must say, I get a kick out of all the 20-something […]

Seen in San Antonio: ’88 Lotus Caterham Super Seven

Spending some time with friends in San Antonio this weekend (quick aside – isn’t it awesome to have good friends of many years, the kind where, when you’re with them, you feel like you’re home?). In true Motorista style, while being kidnapped by my mom/teacher girlfriends for a scintillating trip to the teacher-supply store and […]

Cars and Coffee Austin – July 13, 2014

It was a hot morning in Austin, Texas, but Thing 1 and I headed over to the Oasis for some gratuitous car-spotting. Here’s what we saw… A little Ford GT40 action. I got a kick out of this Ford DeLuxe. Oh, ok. I’ll take a little Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG and Aston Martin Vantage action on […]

Cars and Coffee Austin – May 18, 2014

Today was a beautiful day for a little driving and car ogling, and I made the most of it. Up early (for me), camera in hand, I headed off to Cars and Coffee for a sensory feast. There was a great mix of cars today – classic, modern, used, new, exotic, exotic in a painful […]

Esotico Italiano – Classic Lamborghinis

Yes, I’m still talking about the Esotico Italiano (if this is your first time hearing about it, read this and this). But I really thought the classic Lambos deserved their very own post. And so, without further ado‚Ķautomotive insanity!!   2001 Diablo:               1991 Diablo:         […]

It’s been a loooong week. No time for blogging. Consider this a down payment on tomorrow’s post:       See you soon!

Cars and Coffee Austin – February 9, 2014

Cars and Coffee – possibly the greatest concept in the history of time. And I don’t even like coffee. It’s a pretty basic idea – get a bunch of cars and car enthusiasts together for a laid-back, unofficial car show. The event, which originated in California (I think?), is actually franchised out to various locations, […]

Vintage Saturday: a View of the Paddock

This weekend is the U.S. Vintage National Championship at Circuit of the Americas, aka vintage car racing, aka a treasure trove of photography and racing for meeeee. Today I took a walk around the paddock and saw races of various classes, including vintage sports cars, open-wheel and formula cars, and Minis! ¬†I thought you would […]

Shaken and Stirred

No, it’s not James Bond’s car (that was the DB5). But the Aston Martin DB6 in these photos struck a truly beautiful pose at the British car show this weekend.               I wasn’t sure who/what David Brown was, until I did a little Internet research. Legacy.     I […]
