Porsche 911 LuftAuto

Luftgekuhlt is a brand founded by two-time Le Mans class winner Patrick Long and creative director Howie Idelson to pay tribute to all air-cooled cars in the Porsche world. The brand recently released a special car designed for a special purpose (it was auctioned for $275,000 at the Autumn Leaves Project, a charity dedicated to pancreatic cancer research). Named LuftAuto, the rally-style 911 from 1985 was designed in form and function to be both a daily driver as well as a capable off-roader. Notable features include a rebuilt 3.2-liter engine, a sports exhaust, lightweight Recaro bucket seats, a lifted suspension, off-road lighting, a roof rack with spare tire, new Pirelli P-Zero Rally tires, custom fog lamps with headlight grills, skid plates, and custom powder coated front and rear bumpers. The motivation came from the spirit of the Baja-style desert races that play a significant role in California’s racing history, and the end result is a perfect blend of history and creativity in a stylish design.

ANYTHING SCOUT NEMO TRUCK

The "International Harvester Scout" is one of the most desirable trucks from the 1970s, it was the first true Sport Utility Vehicle. But, although they are undoubtedly great-looking vehicles on the outside, they weren’t exactly built to last, and what lied under the hood left much to be desired. NEMO Equipment founder Cam Brensinger commissioned the best Scout shop in the country - "Anything Scout” (an outfit that’s been restoring these vehicles since 2013) to work ...
