Short Bus Retro | By Winkelman Architecture

Over the years we have showcased many adventure vehicles, but nothing as special as this, an old-school bus converted into a camper. Restored to perfection by Winkleman Architecture for a client, the 1959 Chevrolet Viking short bus can safely carry 12 passengers, converting to guest quarters for two with two single beds, or joined in the center as a queen bed. The design aesthetic was inspired by the mid-century, and has a charming 60′s, hippy-chic feel, executed with an arts and crafts approach. The sixties vibe is complete with plumbing, power, and a funky interior including a beautiful pine floor, multi-colored beads, tassel lamps and Moroccan-style prints. The end result is a cozy cottage on wheels for unique family forays into the wilderness.

So Rocky Creed Designs came up with HelmetLok, a simple way to lock your helmet, safely, to your bike, using the handlebars or the frame and without any keys. The HelmetLok uses a combination lock to close, making it easy to use. Fit it into your pocket ...

ABT AUDI R8 SPYDER

The R8 Spyder is not just a cabrio, it is a teasingly beautiful open-top sports car of the top class, a real dream car - in particular ABT Sportsline’s version. Their designers have contoured the lines of the open-top model athlete, and using the ABT R8 Spyder has redefined the word "roadster” with Bavarian thoroughness: the result is a vehicle whose power can be seen even when it is at a standstill. The Spyder is able to sprint from 0 to 100km/h in just 3.8 seconds...
