People who say that young people aren’t into cars are just plain wrong, and the micro-blogging site Tumblr is proof – here are five auto-themed Tumblr pages we really like this week.
America by Motorcycle: Let’s take a little detour from our usual four-wheeled fare and admire some transportation of the two-wheeled variety. Indians, Triumphs, and Harleys galore on the infinite feed – everything from choppers to crotch rockets. For those auto nuts, there are also a Ford rat racer or two. [AmericaByMotorcycle]
Just a Hot Rodder: Speaking of rat racers, here is a tumblr created by a hot rodder for hot rodders (or people who love looking at hot rods). This blog consists mostly of American born hotrods both finished and unfinished, including the author’s own projects. As with any good car retrospective, there are retro photos and ads for 50's and 60's-era dream machines. [JustAHotRodder]
Coolamundo: Dubbed a phase made awesome by The Fonz, “Coolamundo” is an apt title for this Motorsports tumblr. This blog contains all autos meant for racing on and off the track. Sexy speed demons abound on “Coolamundo,” but we heart the Ford Focus RS, Mercedes-Benz AMG 6x6, and the Ford Mondeo, or Ford Fusion, for our American audience. [Coolamundo]
Wheels ‘n Heels: Chock-a-block with Mercedes, Maseratis, and a few muscular Mustangs, this tumblr will satisfy your cravings for the classics. There’s even a nod to old school racing with some pics of racing legends Birabongse Bhanudej and François Cevert. With regards to the “Heels” part of the tumblr’s moniker, it’s unclear if this is a car blog made to admire female fashion or physique. Either way, it’s eye candy for all audiences. [WheelsNHeels]
Hilgram Photo: We love us some professional automobile photography tumblrs, and Hilgram Photography is no exception. Featuring stunners from past and present, there are modern Bugattis, classic Ferraris, and an Acura NSX or two. Our favorite? The baby blue Lamborghini Miura Roadster, a one-off wonder taken far too soon. [HilgramPhoto]
