A Perfect Saturday Morning @ Period Correct w/ video!


Beautiful, just, beautiful. That’s the only way I can describe this Aventurine Green 993 Turbo. It was by far my favorite car hanging out at Period Correct last Saturday, a title not easily won.

The Jeep Wrangler Is Unapologetically Bad And That's What Makes It Great

The Jeep Wrangler is still the quintessential American off-roader. It’s also gawky, inefficient, and built to the standards of a cereal box toy.
