Kokomo Ailand


Yacht design has gotten pretty extravagant in recent years, but nothing compares to Kokomo Ailand. More mobile island than yacht, Kokomo is a floating, semi-submersed vessel with a level of luxury that rivals a four-star resort. According to renderings, the “private floating habitat” features multiple decks and amenities, a sky-high penthouse suite, and even a beach club. The company behind it, Migaloo Private Submarines.

Polished 1956 Post and Beam in Laurel Canyon


Thanks to rampant skylights and clerestory windows, a person could probably get a tan from all the natural light inside this 1956 post and beam. Located on a winding street off Laurel Canyon Boulevard, the two-bedroom, one-bathroom house is a modest 1,118-square-feet but looks much bigger, and boasts bamboo floors, a farmhouse sink in the kitchen, and a tankless water heater. A hefty piece of the nearly 6,000-square-foot lot has been transformed into a multi-level backyard deck, and landscaped with drought-tolerant plants. Via :

Guy Ligier


Guy Camille Ligier (12 July 1930 – 23 August 2015) was a French rugby player, racing driver and later a Formula One team owner. He first made his name as a rugby player in the late 1940s when he was working as a butcher's assistant in his home town of Vichy, Allier. An orphan, he was determined to build up a successful business and saved all his money in order to buy a bulldozer and then went into the construction business. When his rugby career ended – after he had played for the French national team – he began racing motorcycles before trying his hand at single-seater racing with a Formula Junior Elva.

Steve McQueen's Chevy Baja Truck


The builder of this truck was Vic Hickey, a prominent figure in Baja Motorsports. It is noted to be Chevrolet's first full-size 4x4 Baja 1000 truck, and it's comprised of a C10 chassis with a C30 one-ton cab and a 400 Turbo transmission. It debuted in the 1968 Baja 100 and raced in the 1969 Las Vegas Mint 400 and the 1970 Baja 500, winning Riverside in 1970. In 1970 McQueen bought a bunch of racing cars from GM, and this was one of them. The stickers are now repro, but the patina'd paint on it is original, and the truck features a number of period improvements as well as updates done along the way. The seats are Corvette buckets and the tires Goodyear R3 A/T tires on 16" wheels. Under the hood is a rebuilt 350 with a Quadrajet. Via :
