The Beast of Turin Takes a Spin at Goodwood

Just watching the Beast of Turin’s engine fire up a few months ago was flabbergasting. To see her spin around the grounds at Goodwood is downright magical.

It’s jarring to see a racing machine that is as tall as a man’s shoulder. Climbing up on to the seat of the 28.5 liter Fiat S76 is more like perching in a biplane than easing down into a low-slung racing car. You emerge from a car like this with your whole body numb from the battle—shaking and tingling for hours afterwards.

That pheasant barely made it out with his life.

Thanks for pointing this one out, Ryan.

Why I Love Elkhart Lake

I hope this photo doesn’t get anyone in trouble but I can’t help but share this shot from the 2008 Elkhart Lake Vintage Festival. Where else in the world can you stumble out of the bar at 1am and see a pre-war biplane engine-powered Frazer-Nash monoposto double parked in a handicapped spot?

I just love it.
