  1. We thought it would be a fitting closure to our special August Speed theme to release a new Will Roegge film. Entitled "Four Hundred", it's a quick snapshot of the Nish Land Speed Record team and their Royal Purple Streamliner.

    The film also brings you a little closer to the experience of Bonneville...

    ... and allows you to ride along with the Speedhunters team as we set about shooting at the event.

    We hope you enjoy this new film and the exclusive access we arranged with Nish Motorsports. Perhaps it will inspire even a few of you to come out to the Salt Flats next year. We'll see you there!

    Special thanks to Will Roegge for putting this fantastic film together! I also need to thank our own Rachel Kelly for her help in organizing the trip and Rugged Media for their production support at the event.

    Enjoy.

  4. This is the second part of three spotlight feature videos that was taken at this year's RetroRides Gathering at Shelsley Walsh Hill Climb in Worcestershire.

    This feature spotlight feature's David's (from Retroford) Ford 2.3 Duratec powered Lada. As I was making my first sweep of the show I couldn't help but spot David's Lada, the fact that it was bright yellow drew my eyes in instantly. Then walking up to the bonnet propped open, invited the camera lens to take a closer look. This machine is clean, superbly executed with a crazy engineering skills to shimmy that 2.3 Duratec engine into the Lada's bay, I can only imagine what it sounds like and how it must handle being the Lada weighs nadda!

    The Lada must be a hoot to drive and scare potential traffic light racers as it looks so OEM with the bonnet closed, even the steel wheels do not give a single thing away. The only thing that would let you know that it was something out of the ordinary on the road (apart from the paint job!) would be the tail lights zooming off into the distance as the lights turn from red to amber - signalling you to pull away.

    Enjoy this piece of engineering wizardry!

  5. This is the third and final part of three spotlight feature videos that was taken at this year's RetroRides Gathering at Shelsley Walsh Hill Climb in Worcestershire.

    This final feature spotlight showcases Bruce's (Area 52) 1948 Land Rover. If you haven't seen this on any blogs or forums this summer then be prepared. It's not the usual everyday car and it was great to walk up to this creation and see and hear from Bruce himself what modifications have been done, why and a brief historic run down on this particular vehicle. From it's roofless and removable door experience to it's low down grass-cutting drop, this machine has something to turn a passer by into a stop, stare and share a picture kind of person. It's been made for fun and has been engineered and modified without constraint to put a smile or even a questionable glance to whomever encounters it.

    Bruce isn't your usual automotive modifier, he's played with a number of vehicles from Delica's, Rascal's, MX5's and many more. Each one definitely stands out from the crowd and follows their own path. I can't wait to see what Bruce has next up his sleeve.

    This is Bruce's 1948 Land Rover. Enjoy.

Life is too short for ugly cars.

Safe. You can choose your means of getting around by price-performance ratio, trunk capacity or color. Or by breakdown statistics. Of even by fuel efficiency. Now that's really safe. And rational. But you can also let your heart and the gasoline in your blood carry you away. That's passion.

Chromjuwelen.com (Chrome Jewels) sets off with the passion that steers you off the safe path into the irrational lane. The community that meets and exchanges info every day on the internet portal has it's high-octane outing behind it. And often makes everything associated with it—choice of music, clothing and colorful skin—part of their lifestyle. With all the consequences. And a lot of self-confidence.
