Well, the first stunt ended up ok.

But the second one, not so much so!  

Check it out. ;-)

Someone Pimp My Ride, Please

Talking about a bare bones Jeep. 

Ain't nothing left here, but this skeleton. 

Yes, it's gutted, but it still drives! 

This is the anti-luxury automobile.  ;-)

Looks Like Fun

Three-wheelers are not just for babies. 

This one is pretty cool. 

I bet it's fun to drive around town. ;-)

Nice Wheels and Rims

Not an overly impressive car.

But the oversize wheels and good-looking rims are quite fine!

What's more important the car or the tires?  ;-)

Functional art ready for the road.  ;-)

Ready To Drag Race

I'm not sure a Nissan is generally "all that." 

But this guy definitely souped it up so that it looks pretty nice! 

Why don't call cars look exciting like that?  ;-)

Fun Cars To Pretend

These are great cars for the kids.

Sporty and colorful.

Fun to pretend to drive. 

Just like a big person.  

Watch the speeding please!  ;-)

Will It Drive Again

Saw this truck in the shop. 

Wondered if it will ever drive again.

Right now it looks like it's headed for mothballs and cobwebs. 

But who knows, cars in worse shape have been rehabilitated.  ;-)

Nice Accents

Cool black Jeep with red accents. 

Subtle but not. 

What does it take to pimp a ride?

Red accents are a start. 

You still need some real fancy tires.

And don't forget the premium upgrade package! 

Otherwise, the ride is just a ride. ;-)

Porsche Lovers

Awesome Porsche "Teddy Bear"!

For Porsche lovers, I think it's mighty hard to resist it. 

Now that's a brand that inspires with its meticulous eye toward design and quality. 

The result is even a huggable Porsche is sweet! ;-)

Creative Clock With Cars

Thought this was a pretty cool clock. 

Instead of just giving you the time (here it is 20:52 or 8:52 pm), the numbers are made up of 3-7 little cars.

When a number changes, cars either drive on or off to form the new ones.

(The "whole" clock is greater than the sum of its cars, which are the "parts".)

And then some of the drivers actually get out of the car to schmooze or maybe clean their car. 

Very creative and it makes you think.

That's a good thing. ;-)

Ferrari Motor Furniture



This was very cool. 

The first is a coffee table for the living room.

The second is half of a nice desk.

Both are made out of working Ferrari engines.

The coffee table goes for $50,000.

And the desk goes for $75,000.

I will told that this is a bargain based on what a working Ferrari engine goes for. 

In a sense you can take your table for a spin around the block...LOL.

Truly the engine (and not just design of the car) is a work of art. 

It merits being a centerpiece of your office or home. ;-)

Check Out Those Rims

Wow, this was some car that I saw in Florida. 

Pimp my ride! LOL

Check out those awesome gold rims with this blue "oldies" car. 

This was definitely a standout even down there where there are plenty of Bentleys and Lamborghinis driving around. 

The owner of the car gave me a big thumbs up when I tool this photo. 

Hope you enjoy and Shabbat Shalom!

Amazing Cuban Art







I never knew about Cuban art until we visited Cernuda Arte gallery in Coral Gables, Florida.

They treated us like royalty and gave us a personal guided tour of two buildings filled with works by Cuban artists still at home in Cuba and here in exile. 

This was better than many museums that I've been too. 

I just want to thank the gallery owners and our guide for a wonderful showing and tell them how impressed we were with the art there. 

Even while the Cuban people are repressed by their dictatorial leaders, there is so much of interest in Cuba: from their colorful colonial architecture to their cool "oldie cars", renown cigar smokes, some pretty talented artists, and I'm sure much more. 

Cuba is only 485 miles from the USA!

I pray for the freedom of the Cuban people. ;-)

Carlos Ghosn - Success and Failure


My thoughts on Carlos Ghosn--the head of Nissan, Mitsubishi, and Renault.

What can we learn from his rise to power and his fall from grace?

Basically...be a real leader and not a schmuck!

Be modest.  Be humble.  Give to others.  Do Good!  ;-)

That's Some Pricey Garbage Art


So we stopped in this gallery in Palm Beach.

And there lay this piece of "art".

Well, I'm not sure--is this really art?

The proprietor explained that this is made up of scrap pieces of metal from the garbage dump like from old discarded automobiles. 

The artist welded the garbage together, painted it, and voila there it is--some very pricey art. 

Who pricey you ask.

Take a guess.

No really. 

No, you're too low. 

Try again. 

No, you're still too low.

Not even in the ballpark. 

Okay, I'll tell you, but only because you asked so nicely.

It starts with a 95.  

No, not $9,500.

No, not $95,000 either. 

That's right $950,000!!!

All this "art" can be yours if the price is right. 

Can anyone say "irrational exuberance" again? ;-)

Introducing The Valkyrie

Wow, just loved this new Aston Martin called the Valkyrie!

If I had a spare $2.6 million laying around that no one needed, I'd definitely get one of these. 

1,000 horsepower, V-12 engine, and they fit the car to you, literally!

"It's a carbon fiber rocket" with an assisted electric motor for the environmentally conscious. 

Here's a link to some awesome images of this gorgeous "hypercar" (which reminds me of Elon Musk's Hyperloop and it's a thousand time better looking than the Tesla).  

Fast, futuristic, performance, stylish, and sleek as can be.

I almost want to photoshop a picture of myself in the diver's seat with a huge smile on my face as I wave and say see you later. ;-)
