Lord K's Garage - 8th Issue. HUMBLE WORKHORSES

It is a perfect day to pay the tribute to the American trucks - full-size and pick-ups, so beautiful even in their ugliness, so cool, almost human. Like this 1940 Dodge Half-Ton Pick-up:



Or this 1938 Studebaker Coupe Express:



Or these 1939 International Harvester D-300s (beer, anybody?):



Humble workhorses of the Great… Continue

Lord K's Garage. 6th issue: AEROSPIDER

There's only one car here today, but what a car! 1935 Alfa Romeo 6C 2300 Aerodynamica Spider with Jankovits Bros bodywork is sleek, perfectly symmetric and mid-engined. A hell of a car.

Here's a fine article that appeared in the Classic & Performance Car magazine last year:

It looks like… Continue

Lord K's Garage - 5th Issue. SERIAL KILLER'S ARROWS

It was a government car. A gangsters' car. A playboys' car. A natural choice of a millionaire. Pierce-Arrow, the ultimate American luxury vehicle. Fit for a serial killer with a sense of self-esteem.

First Arrows - George N. Pierce's brainchilds - appeared as early as in 1903, then the company was sold to new owners but kept the founder's name. Early Perce-Arrows were powered by huge engines - 11.7 and even 13.5 liters. They carried… Continue

Lord K's Garage - 4th Issue. Tanquettes' Age

Who said my garage is for cars only? And why should I waste my precious parking space on some SUV when I can use it for AFV, armored fighting vehicle - a tanquette or some battlecar with a fuel-saving 70 or even 30 H.P. engine? Machine-gun or flamethrower available as an option. Something like this:

Thanks to shushpanzer_ru@LJ community we can see a bunch… Continue

Lord K's Garage - 3d Issue. Automotive Wellsiana

It's so hard to pick a proper vehicle to carry H.G.Wells' heritage.

The author of 'Time Machine' started his way to eternity in Vernesque era and left this Universe in the most dystopian days of Dieselpunk period when most of his prophecies came true. So, his life is a kind of a bridge between two epochs.

Anyway, let's start:

1900 De Dion Bouton



1907 Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost Barker… Continue

Lord K's Garage - Interlude

There are myriads of images and thoughts one can associate with Gil Elvgren's pictures. It is so easy to pick a healthy dozen or two of automotive snapshots, ads and fine artwork - and title them all as 'A Tribute to Gil'. But I want to publish only one picture this week - and not of a pin-up kind:

Now see its full version:

Chrysler Imperial Advertisement,…

Know Your Pulp: Lord K's Garage #2

Pulp Cars: Are They Real?

Not only heroes and villains decorated the covers of assorted 'Amazing stories', comics and detective series. There were also the heroes' and villains' cars - sleek, vicious, packed with sex appeal. Cars with an individuality - something completely lost nowadays.

You see them and cannot believe your eyes. But they are real.

Here are some unique automobiles - prototypes of the 30s and 40s, dream cars of… Continue

Lord K's Garage - 1st Issue. Crime Doesn't Pay

This 1934 Ford Model 730 Fordor Deluxe Sedan is probably the most famous car of the Thirties. Bought for $835 by Mrs.Ruth Warren in February, 1934, it was stolen by a pair of criminal sweethearts (or sweetheart criminals, if you like) - Clyde S. Barrow and Bonnie Parker.

Most of its mileage (2500 mi) was done by Bonnie & Clyde on their way to death. Here it is, perforated by automatic, semi-automatic and non-automatic… Continue
