Icon Thriftmaster – love it or hate it

.

I’ve been keeping an eye on the Icon guys for a while; they have taken a lot of my favorite classic cars and married the timeless styling with a modern performance package. Although they don’t always stay true to certain design details, their overall approach I feel is honorable.

That being said, I am not so sure the new Thriftmaster model price tag of 250 000 usd does the same. This is a truck for the certain rich person that loves the old time styling but likes the handling of a new car. Personally I would rather browse craigslist for something closer to the original and to a little more overcoming price tag. Love it or hate it, I feel that Icon put in some solid thought to the parts and designed the truck with fundamentally proud mid-century American styling.

“Coren” – Chosen

.

The name Coren in old English means “chosen” or “precious”, and if you can you spare $25,000 and 40 hours wait, then this precious bike could be yours. This bicycle was designed by Christian Zanzotti and are currently made by a German company called UBC . The Coren is hand-made in less than a day, weighs only 7,700 grams and is available in single speed or fixed gear with a third model currently under construction. The bikes are built with the type of carbon fiber that is usually associated with Formula 1 cars and the aerospace industry, hence the “affordable” pricing, but with a unique looking frame which uses a belt drive instead of a chain.

Childhood Dreams Come True

.

Child’s Own Studio is possibly the coolest concept I have ever seen! Seeing these toys will make you want to immediately go out and have kids, impatiently wait for them grow to an age when you can encourage them to scribble their wildest ideas straight from their imagination, just so you can send their drawings away to get them turned in to reality at Child’s Own Studio. And oh yeah, the kids will probably love it too! Check out some of their bestest creations below.
