Illuminati Motor Works Concept Car – Taking Shape

The guys over at Illuminati Motor Works have uploaded a new video showing how the concept car “Seven” is taking shape. The way they describe the building process it reminds me of the way Ed “Big Daddy” Roth use to build his Show Cars.

Car Logos Over Time

It is interesting to see how logos change over time. I found a site that has a page titled “Car logos evolution”. The page has the changing logos of Mercedes, Renault, Volkswagen, Cadillac, Mitsubushi, Buick, BMW, Ford, Mazda, Fiat, Audi, Alfa Romeo and Peugeot.

The Cadillac logos on the page only covers the actual coat of arms to the first trademarked logo. Here is an image that covers the Cadillac logos form 1902 – 1999. Just this month Cadillac rolled out an updated logo design.

Crashing a 59 Chevy Bel Air into a 09 Chevy Malibu

It hurts to see a classic car getting smashed up but I must admit that when I see crash test videos, I have always wondered how an older car would hold up.

This video was done by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety to celebrate it’s 50th anniversary. They paired up a 1959 Chevrolet Bel Air and a 2009 Chevy Malibu.

If you’re thinking the Bel Air with its size and big chrome bumper will hold its own, get ready for a surprise.

This issue marks the one year anniversary for the magazine.

They feature outstanding examples of state-of-the-art garages as well as other type of garages and shops. They have an article on Roy Brizio’s South San Francisco shop in this issue.

The Munster Koach and the Drag-u-la

The Munsters

Car Lust had a great article on the Munster Koach and the Drag-u-la this week.

The Munster Koach and the Drag-u-la were created by George Barris for the TV show called The Munsters.

In the article, the engine for the Koach is a 300-horsepower 289 Ford Cobra V-8 and the Drag-u-la has a 289 with 350-horsepower.

Both of these custom cars can be seen together in the episode titled “Hot Rod Herman”. “Hot Rod Herman” is one of my favorite “Munsters” episodes and one of the first TV shows I purchased for my iPod.
