BikeEXIF: Roland Sands x Indian - “Track Chief”.
Looks like a barrel of fun. The last photo is the best; the details alone don’t do it justice.
The Coolist: 2016 Mercedes AMG GT is The New Leader of the Pack.
Styling cues from many other coupes, but still unmistakably Mercedes. I applaud the reintroduction of curves.

Youtube: F1 2014 Belgian GP - Huge Crash For Konsantin Tereschenko.
Barn Finds: 1955 Porsche 356 Continental.
Oh, ouch. I can, however, double down on their estimation of eventual worth. Fixing it to concours shape, you could make a tidy profit on the project. Six figures virtually guaranteed.

Lordy, that’s gorgeous.
