FlatOut GoodGuys

They are extremely popular in Brazil, and are part of Australian culture. The Americans also had their own – with sports versions such as muscle cars. But… who invented this kind of pickup, after all? Brazil, Australia or USA?

Who invented light trucks?


Car Culture

“The P1800, on the other hand, is something else. The 1960s were the golden age of the sports car, and everyone wanted one in their lineup, even Volvo; it was a serious sports car, conceptually different, but competing with things like the 911, which was born with two liters and 130 hp, remember. And unlike any other Volvo, it was wonderfully beautiful.”

The Chevrolet Agile. Nobody quite understands where it came from, and why it was based on an already outdated Celt in 2010. And the design was also very different, and less pleasing, than the GPix concept that came out in 2008, supposedly foreshadowing its external appearance.

thought

Brazilian fuel ethanol is often criticized for a number of factors inherent to its application as a local energy matrix. But… doesn’t he have a bright side? A little mutt complex perhaps?

Is Brazilian fuel ethanol really that problematic?


technique

“Swan neck wing” is a business that is on the rise with the new Porsche GT3 and GT4. But… do you know what the difference is? Why did this type of wing start to appear on Porsches and have been used at Le Mans for almost 15 years?

The swan neck: how do swan neck wings work?


History

To be even more Chapmanian than Colin Chapman himself; create an even lighter street sports car than the legendary Lotus Seven. More than that, create the lightest car in history, period. Lighter even than a Romi-Isetta. Such a task could only have been accomplished by Gordon Murray. Meet the Rocket today, the lightest car in the world, created by him before McLaren F1.

LCC Rocket: the lightest car in history

It’s hard to believe today, but soon after it was released, the Mustang was in danger of turning out to be just a passing fad. It was thanks to Carroll Shelby—and a small threat—that we have Mustangs to this day. And that the most f***ing Mustang is named after Shelby.

How did Shelby save the Mustang from being a fad?


classics

Last week we talked about the 1970s; now, as we promised, the 1980s. Which, in big trucks, means one thing: Diesel! In the 1980s, diesel double cabins were the most popular Brazilian luxury cars. But which one was the best? Ford or Chevrolet?

F1000 x Chevrolet 20 series: what was the best Brazilian pickup in the 1980s?


motorcycles

In hindsight, it was the first motorcycle that could be called a Superbike, even though the term appeared much later. Its performance was so superior to anything in its day that it was the fastest production motorcycle in the world from 1948 to 1984! And it is also the inspiration of a great modern fable, written by Richard Thompson in the form of music.
