Every time I see an old Scout or Harvester/Travelall/Travelette I have a hard time not buying it. Then I remember I don't even own a home and should probably do that first. I contract at International/Navistar and would absolutely love to pull up to the campus in one of their classics.

We lived out in the country when I was a kid in the 60's and some neighbors had a Travelall. It made sense then, but I remember thinking how different that was than our "regular" car.

2019 Jeep Wrangler Scrambler

The new Wrangler Scrambler pick up truck will be unveiled November 28th. I'm really looking forward to seeing it. The first photo is what they think it will look like. The second photo is the actual vehicle seen out in the wild during testing.

The rumor is that the Scrambler name will be retired with this next model.

Some of the mid-1950s Maseratis and Ferraris were lovely.

1956 Maserati A6G/2000 Frua-bodied roadster

1959 Ferrari 410 SuperAmerica Coupe Pinin Farina


And there's just something about the Zagato coach building that moves me ...

2006 Ferrari 575 GTZ (Zagato)

1954 Alfa-Romeo 1900 SS Zagato Coupe

1956 Ferrari 250 GT TdF Berlinetta Zagato


Yum.

Yeah...I just saw that it will likely be called the Gladiator with a JT model designation.
