Herd of Miuras

Herd of Lamborghini Miuras by Steven Haas
Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance 2016

Steven Haas sent us this amazing photo from this year's Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance in Florida. He says, "It's like a bag of M&Ms spilled into the grass." I doubt the Lamborghini factory could have had this many completed Miuras at one time when production was in full swing (early 1970s.) At roughly $2,000,000 each, this photo contains $12+ Million worth of Lamborghini Miuras plus a little more for rounding error in the form of a blue Aventador in the background.

I had the pleasure of attending the Pebble Beach Concours with Steve a few years ago. This gentleman knows cars and seemingly every living soul in the auto business: executives from major auto manufacturers, the writers and editors of all the car magazines, the people who restore & insure classic cars. He is currently Director, Financial Services at Hagerty Classic Cars so look him up to protect your valuable classic.

Alfa Romeo 4C Visits Shop

Alfa Romeo 4C visits Almost Everything Auto Body

Almost Everything's Car of the Day is a 2015 Alfa Romeo 4C. We're car guys here so our hearts skipped a beat when this Italian beast pulled up. It was brand new and thankfully there wasn't a thing wrong with it. One of our long-time customers just purchased it and knew we'd enjoy being some of the first people in the USA to see one. I love Alfas and am excited that we are finally getting to taste them again in the United States.

ZZ chop: The FORCE

Almost Everything customer Billy Budde famed for his custom choppers & revolutionary motorcycle design
Almost Everything was honored to have had the one & only Billy Budde in the shop today. Billy is no longer building motorcycles and his Suburban needs a paint job. So he was here for a quote.

Billy is a local hero. His San Leandro motorcycle shop anchored the custom scene in California long before places like Orange County Choppers and Jesse James Choppers existed. Click the links below for vintage article and current discussions about his revolutionary designs.

Almost Everything customer Billy Budde famed for his custom choppers including "The Force."

ZZ chop: The FORCE: ... is very strong in this one. Built by Billy Budde's from san Leandro, CA. Great idea for paint I must say, the marbelizing effect is ...

Summer in San Francisco

Okay, so we can only live & breath cars for 23.75 hours per day. Every once in awhile we notice that we live in a pretty amazing place. Thanks to our friend BK Mair for some very cool photographs of sunset over the Golden Gate Bridge and from a very nice spot on Russian Hill overlooking San Francisco Bay.

Jaguar F-Type Coupe Coming Soon

Jaguar will introduce coupe version of F-Type Nov. 20, 2013

Almost Everything received a press release this afternoon. We drove the new Jaguar F-Type a few months ago and are fans. We just thought that it should be available as a coupe as well as a convertible. Apparently Almost Everything has more pull with Jaguar than we realized!

Here's what Jaguar announced today:

"The highly anticipated 2015 F-TYPE Coupe will  be officially unveiled on November 20, 2013 at the Los Angeles Auto Show. The all-aluminum F-TYPE Coupe delivers on the promise of the C-X16 Concept Car, which won Autoweek's Best in Show award at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show. “We've been overwhelmed by the positive reaction to the F-TYPE Convertible, says Ian Callum, Jaguar Director of Design, “But for me the purity of creating a sports coupe is a uniquely satisfying process. I know that both visually and dynamically, F-TYPE Coupe raises the bar yet again.”

We agree.

Nature at Its Finest--A Falcon Nesting in a Tree. . .

Ford Falcon Nesting in a Tree
This photo came to us in an e-mail. We don't have any information about who took it or where it was taken. It looks to us to be about a 1960-1962 Ford Falcon. Let us know if you have the story behind it.

Video of 2013 Ferrari "LaFerrari"

Beautiful car. Dumb name. Ferrari has unveiled the successor to the GTO, F40, F50 and Enzo and is calling it "LaFerrari." Which as far as we can tell is universally derided. Still, we wouldn't turn one down if offered to us. . . or if we had the $1.3M needed to buy one.

It's a hybrid and the most outrageous Ferrari to date:

  • 0-60 in less than 3 seconds
  • 220 mph top speed
  • 0963 HP
  • 665 lb-ft (900+ Nm) torque.

Nothing To Do With Cars

Tonight's post has nothing to do with cars. Someone sent us a link to Clark Little Photography. I'm a scuba diver in my spare time and Clark's photos reminded me of the best times in the water. His work is stunning. Have a look!

Da Fang's Flake Concept--Beautiful, Baffling, Brilliant

Da Fang is a true automotive designer. His vehicle concept is audacious and genius. The surface, structure and even the "wheels" (if you can still call them that) are active and react to the road, driving conditions and speed to optimize performance, comfort and safety. Panels move to create downforce, help in braking or to allow suspension travel while maintaining a very streamlined profile on smooth roads at high speeds. I hope I will drive something with this type technology in my lifetime. Cudos to Fang on his vision.

For more on the story, visit Da Fang's Blog.

The Price of Swagger: 2011 Maybach "Custom Convertible" by Jay-Z and Kanye West

Uhh. . . not sure what to say about this. . . most people have never heard of Maybach (Mercedes Benz's super-ultra luxury division.) Fewer have ever seen one. The "cheap" version retails for $375,000 USD. If you are interested, the Jay-Z/Kanye West Custom Maybach in this video will be auctioned with proceeds going to relief for the East African Drought Disaster. Hopefully it brings a lot of money but we think you may be able to own a new Maybach for a fraction of the original cost.
