The Cool & Vintage Land Rover Defender ‘Heritage’ Edition

“The Lisbon, Portugal based classic automobile specialty house appropriately named Cool & Vintage is making a splash in the classic car market. With a knack for sourcing enthusiast aimed vehicles and refinishing them with meticulous attention to detail, it’s no wonder the adventure advocates at C&V are now offering a limited run of special edition Land Rover Defenders called the “Heritage.

After moving a number of restored Land Rover Series and Defender models, C&V have decided to produce a batch of Land Rover Defenders that reverberate the brand’s ethos: “If life’s about the journey not the destination, isn’t it about time you hit the road? Turn off the TV and do that road trip. Feel the drive unfold into a thousand stories, stick your tongue out, push the boundaries, make memories, take a chance and tell us about it."

 
 

 
 
 

 
 

Buy This Land Rover And Leave Everything Behind

“Our culture is addicted to perpetual “feed refresh”. It seems that everyone is not just demanding more, but also more right now.Whether it’s advertising, social media, entertainment, or automobiles, the expectation for new stuff seems exponentially more by the day.

Don’t get me wrong, technology is tremendous. It’s benefited most in a positive way. Without the envelope constantly being pushed, we wouldn’t be where we are today. It can be a bit nauseating, though. Some of us are attached to a computer, tablet, or smartphone constantly—I’m guilty here."

 
 

 
 

Is This Low Mileage Mercedes-Benz W123 The Last Normal Car You’ll Need?

“We all love a good sports car, and it’s easy to understand why. The style, the speed, the sounds, the feelings that can transform your daily commute into an exhilarating drive rather than a numb moment of travel between A and B. Sports cars are awesome. They’re the centerpieces for most gearheads: the bread and butter, the steak wrapped in bacon, and potato (smothered in cheese)…er…what was I saying?

Ah, that’s right: sports cars tingle the senses. But as much as I appreciate them, my practicality shines through: I love sedans… and trucks... and even (some) vans! But why?"

 
 

 
 

This Datsun Proves The Coolest Vintage Trucks Are Ones That Were Raced

“Here’s the problem with your first track day: once you’ve got the itch for circuit racing, you’re wrecked—well, hopefully not literally. What I mean is, you’ve approached the slippery slope like an amateur skier on a double black diamond summit. All of the sudden, this newfound pastime isn’t something you want to do occasionally: you want to make the track a second home. Addicted, you start to calculate what you’ll need.

It starts with a second set of wheels and sticky tires—harmless enough. Obviously, you don’t want to rent or borrow a stanky helmet, but you can justify that cost because it’s for safety."

 
 

 
 

Here’s A Classic Ford Rally Car That’s Been Made Faster Than Ever

“When I think classic sport coupes, the first cars that come to mind are the Datsun 510, BMW 2002, and Alfa Giulia Sprint. They’re the tossable compacts that I grew up lusting after: one from Japan, one from Germany, and one from Italy—just about all the regions covered. Admittedly, I’ve always known about the early Ford Escort models, but I seem to unfairly forget about them, and I think most of our cliqué in North America has, too.

I’m not sure why, because they’re popular in Europe…and scanning the images of this Mk1 1974 Ford Escort RS2000 certainly makes me feel foolish for not taking more notice, sooner."
