    Philipp Plein Ferrari

    A while back I posted this exact Ferrari Testarossa on my instagram account. At the time the store was under construction and I wasn’t able to go in to get a closer look at the white 80s supercar. I was wondering by the same corner today and looked in to see the car still in the store. It was! This time it had a leopard print wrap on it. I went inside to check it out further. The guy working in the Philipp Plein store said he didn’t mind if I just took a couple pictures. I asked about the car. It doesn’t have the engine, due to city regulations,…

    ASTON MARTIN delivers Banger DBS SUPERLEGGERA homage to ON HER MAJESTY’S SECRET SERVICE

    Aston Martin announced a nod to the 50th Anniversary of On Her Majesty’s Secret Service. This is the sixth James Bond film released in 1969. Same color, same maker, much higher performance. The same color, Olive Green will be used on all 50 of the edition. Also, this car might win for the best rims of the last 30 years. Pricing is around £300,007.00, shipping this fall. See Aston’s Press clipping here. The Fake Alligator Hot Take Look, folks. I love Aston Martin. Their restrained styling and unrestrained driving experience are amazing.

    Fake Alligator’s 2018 Shopping Guide

    The holiday season is upon us.  Time to buy a whole bunch of stuff for your friends and family without any clue if they’ll like it or not.  If thay already have it or not.  Or buy stuff for people you, frankly, don’t really like.  (Anything made by David Wellington, Tiffany, or  Hermes (ties excluded).)  I know what you’re thinking… Who the hell are you to write a guide on what to buy people, you’re such a curmudgeon, you only like 3 watch brands, 2 car manufacturers and 2 clothing brands.  I say you’re right so let’s just say I’m doing this out of social obligation for those who really…
