The Way Forward: This Jeep Pickup Looks Mighty Good to Us

Look, the long-promised Jeep Wrangler pickup truck can’t get here soon enough. Fiat Chrysler confirmed it will arrive in 2017, but if you can’t wait that long, Bring A Trailer has the perfect thing for you: A delightfully clean, straight, and dry 1959 Jeep FC150, the adorable cab-over-engine, forward-control pickup based on the original CJ5.

2016 Volkswagen Beetle Dune Test: Inspired By Baja, At Home in Bakersfield

The Volkswagen Beetle is the car most likely to achieve immortality. More than 21 million air-cooled Type 1 versions were sold during a production run spanning seven decades.

How To Build The Aston Martin V8 Vantage GTE In 60 Seconds: Video

Just a month ago, Aston Martin announced the 2016 Aston Martin V8 Vantage GTE along with a new partnership with TOTAL and Dunlop. When we reviewed the new Vantage GTE, we talked a lot about what makes it such a special machine, but we didn’t go into much about how it was actually built. When you look at the car as a finished project, it’s hard to imagine just what actually went into getting the end result. Now, you’ll have a little more insight into that process by watching this minute-long video of the V8 Vantage GTE being hand built.

The video is, of course, played at high speed so that the entire process takes just 60 seconds, but its long enough for you to get the gist of just how many people and how much work goes into hand building one of these track-bound monsters. If you’ve ever been a fan of taking tours of manufacturing plants or watching the documentaries on TV, then you’ll love this video. In fact, you’ll probably watch it a couple of times and notice something new each time.

With that said, go ahead and click play and watch for yourself. I wonder how hard it is for the all of these people to work together on one car at the same time. Sometimes I have issues with just one person getting in my way when wrenching, let alone five or six others. It takes a special breed of mechanic to work in a manufacturing facility like this. Enjoy the video!
