Italian automotive excellence meets the art of the street in this bitchen graffiti art car by John “CRASH” Matos. The custom-painted 2005 Ferrari F 430 was on display curbside last evening in front of the Dorian Grey Gallery on East 9th Street as part of the opening reception festivities for its Strada Veloce exhibit, which opened yesterday. Strada Veloce, loosely translated, is Italian for “Fast Road.”

It wasn’t that easy to get clear, “Human Free” shots of the car because, understandably, people were swarming all over it like flies. Because even those who don’t drive love a fast car.

The exhibit, which features exotic automotive accessories refashioned as functional furniture and also oil paintings of expensive foreign sports cars, will be up through October 5th at Dorian Grey Gallery, Located at 437 East 9th Street (Between A and 1st) in NYC. But if you weren’t there last night, you missed this Sweet Ride for good!

Check out this Sweet Ride of The Day! I took this photo of an awesome silver Camaro last July in the city of Ketchikan, Alaska, while in port during a Carnival Cruise. You can even see our ship, The Miracle, in the background of the shot. Good times!

Designed by Glynn Jenkins in 2008, the Mini Cooper Mini Desk is a fantastic example of what can be done to repurpose an automobile if you set your mind to it.

While the desk has no drawers, per se, photos found on another site indicate that storage is available in the trunk and also under the hood. The Mini Desk website is no longer in existence, so I am guessing your chance to own one for these bespoke desks is long gone. Still, it is nice to look at this photos, and to imagine what might have been.

Over at Jalopnik, this Russian PT Cruiser Wedding Limo (yes, I just typed that) is taking a lot of shit for being what it is. But, really, isn’t this car actually all kinds of awesome? It reminds me of Disneyland. I just love it!

We all live in a Yellow-Infinti-Marine! From what I can gather by doing a rough Google Translation of the Portuguese text on the above-linked site, this custom-designed Infinti SUV was created by an unnamed Russian Beatles fan in the style of the iconic designs created for The BeatlesYellow Submarine album and film by artist and illustrator Heinz Edelmann.

Bacon Thing of The Day: Bacon Car!

Bacon Car

August 31st is International Bacon Day! Did you know that? I was actually unaware of the pending festivities until someone pasted a photo this rad Bacon Wrapped Car on my FaceBook page. Apparently Ford Fiesta drivers now have a new way to express their Bacon love! The automotive giant is offering buyers of 2014 model Fiesta the opportunity to have their new cars wrapped in one of four vinyl graphics, each featuring delcious Bacon. Designs range from a few bacon racing stripes to a hog-wild helping of bacon graphics wrapped around the entire car. This is definitely not a joke and you can check out all of the Bacon Designs on Ford’s Fiesta Graphics page, at This Link!
