The Morgan Motor Company located in Britain doesn’t change in a changing world. Not only it is still independent, but it also makes each car by hand. A base model is about $44,000, but some cars cost up to $300,000. And people wait for over a year to get their exclusive hand-built cars with the shell made out of metal and much of the vehicle made out of wood. Working on the wood interior, workers use metal shears to individually shape a hood because each car has to be different. Every year Morgan produces about 600 cars. The company will celebrate its 100th anniversary in 2011. It has a long interesting history, because it is still run by the same family: the Morgans. Founded by Henry Frederick Stanley Morgan known as “HFS”, it was then ran by his son Peter, and now it is run by Charles, the son of Peter Morgan.

All these car drivers hide from the summer heat using the most unusual and bizarre air conditioning systems. Maybe it might be cheaper to buy and install a real AC in the car rather than using such odd looking hand-made conditioners?

This Moskvich tuning project is known as Kulibin Pepelats or Grandfather Misha. This was a very old car, but fantasy and ideas of Misha Sinelnikov helped him to create a cool super car that is now one of the most popular cars at tuning shows in Russia. Misha used the simplest car parts. He doesn’t even remember their prices because it took him a year to complete this project. Moskvich sedan was converted into a coupe in several days, and then it became a sports coupe. It was first shown at one of the regional tuning and car audio sound championships in Rostov. The car looks pretty cool, but Mr. Sinelnikov still continues working on its tuning.

An old gentleman on legendary McLaren F 1 worth €1 million managed to crash in Germany. A 61-year-old businessman from New York out-braked himself on the B48 towards Trier after another vehicle had swerved to go around water without indicating. The man avoided the swerving car, but his blue F1 couldn’t slow adequately to join a traffic jam ahead safety. It hit an Audi.

Luckily, no one was hurt in this accident. The damage to the F1 was ascertained to total €100 000. Quite a repair bill, we’ll say, as it’s supposed to cover a new left fender and nose surfacing.

Some people think they know how they should drive a car, ride a bicycle or motorcycle to look cool. Of course, seeing such a scene in real life won’t make me laugh as I would be scared to death for the guy’s life. But the pictures are funny.

Enrique Iglesias decided to draw attention to himself by borrowing one of his fans’ camera and taking a photo down his pants. Yes, you got it right. He simply pointed the camera down his trousers during a performance and made a photograph of his… underwear. This is kind of weird, as the artist actually gave the camera back to the fan.

British TV presenter Clare Nasir went to the park to start training after she gave birth to her child. It is hard to bring yourself into a shape. Not every woman would be so comfortable to put on a bathing suit right after the childbirth, let alone to go workout in a park where everyone can see you.
