Muscle Car hungry


1,571 Shelby GT500KR were produced in 1968, 528 were convertibles and 1 prototype coupe was built. The 428CJ produced: 335 horsepower @ 5200 rpm and 440ft lbs torque @ 3400rpm. 0-60 mph in, 6.0 seconds 1/4 mile: 14.3sec @ 100mph

'69 Pontiac GTO "The Judge"

1967-69 Chevrolet Camaro This car comes to mind as one of the top muscle cars of all time. proving the first really is the best sometimes. With almost 80 factory options and 40 dealer options, this car defined the day of "special order". From the coveted Z28 to the RS, any model sends chills up my spine.

Go American

F ya!!

THE AMERICAN COWBOY


New York designer Adam Kimmel’s Marlboro Country-inspired spring/summer 2010 collection continues to generate a growing influence on glossy fashion editorials. Dunhill nodded towards cowboy styling for the city man in the autumn/winter 2010 show, slinging sheepskin ranch coats over tailored suits accessorised with tan leather belts and pouches. Outside of the catwalks it’s worth noting that luxury menswear luminaries Tom Ford and Ralph Lauren both own and frequently inhabit their own ranches…

Personally, I’ve always had a hankering for a good poncho…

of course there’s nothing better than a hot chick in a poncho and toting a gun

Ms. Welch …

“beware of the man in the poncho, Sanchez…”
