This 1985 Lada 1200 estate (VIN XTA210200F0674370) has been modified by way of bigger aftermarket wheels under fender flares, black-painted trim, and a few other, mostly cosmetic changes including an appreciable ride height drop and a neat Webasto-style fabric sunroof.

Artist’s critique on automobile’s role in consumerism becomes consumer item itself

Images courtesy Artcurial.

While Dustin Shuler’s “Spindle” literally skewered automobiles for the sake of art, Arman’s “Long Term Parking” took a more figurative approach to critiquing automobiles as items of mass consumption, one that the artist never intended to move from where he installed it. And yet, one of the artist’s own not-so-massive replicas of the sculpture sold this week for more than $70,000. Read More

Celebrating a half-century of Jaguar’s peerless XJ6

Images and video are courtesy of Jaguar Media

Jaguar had a well-established reputation for building beautiful, powerful, and luxurious sedans (saloons, to the Brits) that dated back to the 1930s, with their MG SA-fighting S.S. Jaguar 1 1/2 Litre, 2 1/2 Litre, and 3 1/2 Litre Saloons. Their traditional body styles would carry over into the postwar period, ultimately replaced by the XK DOHC six-cylinder-powered, XK120 styling-inspired Mk VII of 1951. The large Jaguar saloons would evolve through the Mk IX and E-type-engined Mk X/420G, while a smaller saloon line descended from unit-body 2.4 of 1956 to the famous  (and sometimes infamous!) Mk II. The S-type would be the in-betweener that, after a few years, begat the 420. Read More
