Chevrolet introduces 1969
jugodechinola:

Have you ever looked at car advertisements from the 50s, 60s, and 70s? There was so much variety in design in each vehicle, the anticipation and the craftsmanship! I love looking through old car ads…and of course, I love this beauty - the coveted 1969 Chevy Camaro SS!
Yes, being with a guy that loves old muscle cars has somehow transfered on to me.

Cars I See - 1987 BMW 325i

This is a story of one man’s love for his car. David Duran has been driving his ‘87 BMW 325i for the last 20 years, it’s his daily driver and his pride and joy. The E30 is considered by many as one of the finest BMW’s ever made and has a huge following in the car scene worldwide. Dave’s E30 is a classic example of keeping the dream alive, it looks as good today (if not better) than the day he got it and his dedication to the vehicle is quite humbling.

This is the first of many videos to come where I will be exploring cool cars and people’s relationship to them.

Many thanks to David Duran for giving me your time and sharing your story. Thanks to my friend Dennis Burnett for helping with second camera and some much needed encouragement, and to my fiance Jessica Little for help with graphics.

2013 Land Rover Range Rover

The new Range Rover will be available in over 170 markets worldwide, with North American customer deliveries scheduled to start in December 2012.  
In the UK, Land Rover opened the order books with prices starting at £71,295 for the Range Rover Vogue 3.0L TDV6 rising to £98,395 for the Range Rover Autobiography 5.0L Supercharged. 
The lighter (up to 926lbs or 420kg, depending on the model) but also bigger, stronger and more refined fourth generation Range Rover, will be available in Europe with three engines at launch.
These include the 503hp (510PS) 5.0-liter V8 Supercharged petrol and two diesels, the 255hp (258PS) 3.0-litre TDV6 and the 334hp (339PS) 4.4-litre SDV8 engines, all of which are paired to an eight-speed automatic transmission.
With the smaller V6 diesel, the total weight savings over the previous model reach 926lbs / 420kg, while fuel consumption has been reduced by 22 percent to 7.5lt/100km (31.4mpg US or 37.7mpg UK) with CO2 emissions of 196g/km. 
In North America, the 2013 Range Rover will be offered with two gasoline engines, a 375hp 5.0-liter naturally-aspirated V8 that offers a 0-60 mph (96km/h) time of 6.5 seconds (0.7-second quicker than the outgoing model), and a 503hp (510PS) 5.0-liter supercharged V8 with a 0-60 mph time of 5.1 seconds (0.8 seconds faster).
Land Rover also confirmed a new diesel-electric hybrid variant for 2013 in certain European and Asian markets, but not North America. 
This model will use Jaguar Land Rover’s new hybrid powerplant that links a 3.0-liter V6 turbo diesel to an eight-speed automatic transmission with an integrated electric motor and a lithium-ion battery package.
