This is One Crazy F1 Inspired iPhone/iPod Dock

08/14/2012

Tunes and cars go together. So why not in some way when you aren’t on the streets? Fine. Two artists from Italy have created some insanely F1 inspired iPhone/iPod docks, which are not only gorgeous to look at but clearly boost your sound.

They are known as iXoost, and each are handmade from solid blocks of aluminum with the manifolds milled using five – axis machines. The manifolds act as natural speakers combined with tweeters and subwoofers, the size of which depends on the size of the model you order, though each is capable of 420 watts of power.

Now’s probably the time to inquire about these in case you were thinking about one for the holidays – and they seem to be pricey, starting at $6,100

The Grand Ascent Hillclimb 2012

06/16/2012

On Tuesday 12/11, you'll get to see a classic episode of Chasing Classic Cars where Wayne Carini goes through his plan to market and then sell th Porsche Special Hill Climb Car. He takes it to the Hershey Hill Climb race to put it through its paces and has a darn good time doing it. But that doesn't stop him from taking it to auction.

THough the Hill Climb took place back in June, we were lucky enough to have Kenneth Visser - automobile fan, blogger and photographer extraordinaire on site and reporting back on the action. Take a walk down memory lane below, and don't forget to tune in to Chasing Classic Cars starting on Tuesday 12/11 starting at 9p.

Another fine tradition has been reignited with the second running of the The Grand Ascent Hillclimb held on the grounds of the Hershey Hotel.  This is a VSCCA sanctioned hill climb exhibition and features a wide variety historic racing cars thundering up a five turn three quarters of a mile long course.  A unique opportunity to see, hear and smell vintage race cars slamming gears.  This event was reignited with the start of the Elegance At Hershey.  We'll talk more about the Concours later.  Let's take a look at some of the neat machinery that was attacking the hill.

Wayne Carini was selected as the Honary Grand Marshall of the Grand Ascent.  He brought his smile and his driving skills to the hill.

Wayne Carini of Chasing Classic Cars took the Bill Rutan VW* special with a 356 four cam motor up the hill.  Wayne spoke about the rides up later "I had a blast"  And his sub 57 second times were reflective of his blistering pace.

But … the folks at Velocity have gathered together 25 rules to achieve a life well lived. And those guidelines just happen to coincide with the philosophy behind this new network.

Think of these as “bucket list ideas,” except for the dying part. Here are principles meant to inspire people who don't plan on dying for decades … if ever. You can become your own living legacy, your actions proclaiming that you are here, you are having fun and you intend to leave your mark on the world.

See how many may already be part of your life:
