Beer or Champagne?

Alright QCrew, we all do it sometimes. When hanging out at the race track after an event, after taking off our helmets and gloves and opening our first beverage after the track has gone cold for the day, we speak disparagingly of a highly shined “garage queen” car or bike sitting in the infield. But we petrolheads are really a welcoming lot, and in a quieter moment away from the smell of race fuel and the adrenaline of fresh competition we will admit to admiring the art and elegance of the classics. In fact, some of us actually attend and participate in car shows and – gasp – even a Concours d’Elegance from time to time.

Do You Dream in Italian?

In Italy, Leonardo Frigerio and his brother spent their free time refurbishing and racing vintage cars.  They worked together as brothers and as competitors, finding, fixing and racing cars on some of the great tracks of Europe.  Certainly there were bets on which was better, but one day the two took on a different bet – could they build from scratch a car like the master craftsmen of the 1950s golden age?  Is it a dream?

A video about an Alfa Romeo 1750 GTV. Honest.

“The Beauty of Racing”

I don't think any racing movies have ever won an Oscar.  That's not really the point, though, is it?  We can't count the times we've watched Grand Prix or LeMans or, more recently, Rush.  It is not really the acting that draws us to the...
