Group 8A at this years Monterey Motorsports Reunion featured a massive field of almost 40 vintage Formula One cars from 1967-1984. The field featured an assortment ranging from the iconic to the obscure. Some, world champion pedigree machines, and others who I’d assume, would rather not dwell on their statistics. To see these cars resting in the paddock is exhilarating in itself, but to see them racing at Laguna Seca is something else altogether.
I hope you enjoy this collection of photos, as always, it was a pleasure to take them. Give the images a click to view them in 4K resolution, right click and save as to keep for your desktop!
6 years ago I heard the word “Moab” for the first time; I actually didn’t even know it was a word, I just assumed it was an acronym or some kind of Jeep lingo. Over the years I came to know it as this annual crescendo of excitement among the Jeep design staff which culminated in shipping a handful of badass one-off Jeep builds to Utah. A couple days later my facebook feed would quickly become over run with selfies and photo bombs of my friends in the desert, posing on sketchy looking overhangs, and convoys of show cars being used in ways which would make most design managers have a complete melt down. Upon their return they’d attempt to explain the epic nature of the trip, complaining that no words or images could do the landscape or the capability of the Jeeps any justice.
Last week I was fortunate enough to make the pilgrimage myself. Unfortunately I can only confirm that it is true, no image or words in my grasp can come close to describing this part of our planet. Nothing can prepare you for the glory of mans accomplishments in engineering than when you feel your Jeep crawling over seemingly impassable obstacles. I’m certain you think I’m being melodramatic. Sure it’s not exactly landing a rover on Mars, but as far as I’m concerned, it might as well be.

Pleased to have these 2 shirts available at www.TheCurbShop.com. We are really happy with the way they came out despite some challenges getting the ink colors just right.
The Ferrari F40 is one of our all time favorites, and if I could have any Ferrari this would almost definitely be the one. Designed by Leonardo Fioravanti at Pininfarina it was the last car which Enzo Ferrari personally approved.
Inspired by the Willys the Land Rover was first developed by chief designer Maurice Wilks as a farm work truck in Wales in 1947. The Land Rover Ninety and One Ten were sold virtually unchanged from 1983 until 2015.
I think this may actually be better than Interstellar…

This year I had an incredible opportunity to design the body for a 2015 NHRA Funny Car. To be perfectly honest, I really had never been that interested in the quarter mile. I really didn’t know the first thing about these incredible machines, which fortunately doesn’t matter when you’ve got an incredible team of engineers to show you the way.
So a few weeks ago I managed to make it out to my first NHRA Nationals event at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. It was honestly as life changing as my first Formula 1 race, the sheer brutality of these machines is something every car guy has got to witness.
At first glance a DTM car might look like a heavily modified road car but taking a closer look, you will discover quite the opposite. Continue reading
As a car guy I’d always been pretty embarrassed to say that I hadn’t been to Monterey car week, especially having lived in California for the better part of a decade. In my defense a handful of dummies had really made the whole thing out to be somewhat unattainable for someone like me. You’ve got to reserve a house at least a year in advance! Hotel? Forget it! Tickets for Pebble are $250! Brooks Brothers is mandatory! Over the years, as I perpetuated this mythology in conversation, several people had pointed out “…Pebble is great and all, but the Historic Races at Laguna Seca are what it’s all about…”.
Since I’m a bit of a bone head it took me another half a decade to finally decide – God dammit I’m renting an RV and I’m going to Monterey Motorsports Reunion!
We are really excited and honored to share this outstanding set of photos from designer, artist and photographer Jochen Paesen. He took a trip to the Le Mans Classic a couple weeks ago and has done a fantastic job of capturing the beauty of these timeless machines, and the intensity of the action. We hope you enjoy them as much as we do, and look forward to sharing more of Jochen’s work in the future.
