This BMW R nineT is a homage to Rickman Métisse

In the world of vintage desert sleds, the Rickman Triumph Métisse reigns supreme. It was a pretty legit scrambler in its day, and also one of best-looking motorcycles from that era. For VTR Customs boss Dani Weidmann, though, there’s an even deeper connection. Back in the 80s, 17-year-old Dani took an apprenticeship at a company called Meier & Lutziger—the Swiss importer of Rickman frames and parts. Dani fell in love with the classy design of these throwback sleds. When the VTR Customs cr...

Custom Bikes Of The Week: 9 December, 2018

A pair of BMW R NineT customs channeling the past and the future, a glorious Rickman Metisse, and an all-time classic Honda race bike. It’s a mixed bag this week. Rickman Metisse by Chelsea Borchert The Rickman Metisse is the quintessential desert sled, and one of the most iconic motorcycles ever. It was developed by the Rickman brothers in England in the early 60s, as a kit that could be ordered to fit the owner’s motor of choice (which, more often than not, was a 650 cc Triumph twin). Bu...

Bolivia creates a nature reserve for world's rarest macaw

The blue-throated macaw is one of the most critically endangered species on the planet – only about 300 remain in the wild. However, the birds are getting some much-needed good news. Bolivian conservation organization Asociación Armonía has partnered with the American Bird Conservancy, the International Conservation Fund of Canada, IUCN Netherlands and the World Land Trust to create a protected nesting area for the imperiled macaw. Related: Endangered green and loggerhead turtles make Mediterra...

Customs were Red Hot—In More Ways than One–During an Eventful 1957

Kustoms. What a year this was for George Barris, starting with unprecedented media exposure and concluding with the disastrous shop fire that nearly put the planet’s best-known customizer out of business. George calculated damages to be a quarter-million dollars (equivalent to $2.2M now). Sure, the shop was insured for anything short of acts of God—one of which the courts determined to be exploding transformers, thereby relieving both the electric utility and insurance company of responsibility....

Alan Rickman Was ‘Frustrated’ Over ‘Harry Potter’ Role: Find Out Why

The late actor Alan Rickman was fondly remembered for his role as Severus Snape in the “Harry Potter” movie series, and many have lauded his performance as the tortured professor who carried the torch for Lily Potter. But in newly-discovered letters and notes penned by the actor, it was learned that Rickman wasn’t completely satisfied with his character’s portrayal.

Alan Rickman Writing About His Frustrations Filming The Harry Potter Series Is SOOOO Snape!

Is perfection too much to ask for? Snape never thought so. And neither did Alan Rickman -- who was apparently quite frustrated with the development of his character while filming the Harry Potter franchise, according to a collection of the actor's personal items up for auction. Two years after his passing, the Neil Pearson Rare Books released Rickman's old scripts, photographs, letters, and personal diaries as part of an auction at the ABA Rare Book Fair in London. Among these items includes a...

One Tough 1950s Shop Truck: Rolled by Rickman, Painted by Barris, Pinstriped by Jeffries

When the company truck wasn’t hauling magazines, photographic equipment, or speed parts around Los Angeles in the 1950s, our first rolling billboard flew the HOT ROD and Car Craft flags nationwide at races and shows. Robert E. Petersen’s acquisition of the 1949 or 1950 Ford panel actually predated the entity Petersen Publishing Company. When these photos were shot by staff photographers Bob D’Olivo in soggy Great Bend, Kansas (1955 NHRA Nationals), and Eric Rickman in San Gabriel, California (19...

One Factor Has Remained Constant in the Life of This Historic 1932 Ford Roadster: Gene Winfield

Drifter. Some hot rods are born travelers. From their initial creation, these vagabonds of speed find their way from one owner to another, passed down through a trail of admirers. With each succeeding possession, the vehicle changes form, as new owners put personal touches on their flanks. Since hot rods are born as customized versions of stock models, there’s no right or wrong here. It’s all in the eyes of the title holder and his or her fabrication team. Several owners have sat behind the whee...

One face kept coming into view while researching 1956’s magazines, movies, television programs, and digitized black-and-white negatives in the Petersen Publishing Co. photo archive. Like a reverse Clark Kent who ducks into a phone booth and comes out wearing business attire, Wally Parks made it his mission to stand up for truth, justice, and the American way of recycling cast-off frames, bodies, and engines into loud, low, menacing contraptions that scared the crap out of decent citizens. “Early...

The Mongrel: A ‘Rickman’ Triumph T120 cafe racer

When Triumph pulled the wraps off the ‘new’ Bonneville back in 2016, they flew several journalists to London to attend the official launch. The event was critical for Triumph: the ‘old’ Bonneville had been in production for 15 years, and the future of the marque was at stake. I wasn’t the only journalist who spent 36 hours travelling from Down Under. Australian Geoff Baldwin from Return Of The Cafe Racers was there too, and after seeing the new T120, decided he wanted to do a custom build. ...

Gasser-Style 1966 Chevrolet Chevelle is a real Strip Tripper

We sure wish Hot Rod magazine had devoted more than just two pages to Fleet Thompson’s gasser-style 1966 Chevelle in its April 1968 issue. If it had, we could bring you more info on what photographer Eric Rickman called “this super-sano machine.” Here’s what we do know. Thompson started the project about two years prior to Rickman’s December 1967 photo shoot, which means the SS396 was essentially brand new when the modifications began. The Chevelle went to Ron Scrima’s Exhibition Engineering f...

Backstage Past Part 2: 1955

A year that opened brightly with unprecedented prosperity, new-car horsepower, and interest in auto racing closed darkly in the wake of James Dean’s fatal highway crash and a rash of on-track tragedies.

Petersen’s photojournalists saw and did on their way to visiting the people, places, and things that readers experienced vicariously and exclusively in Pete’s monthly magazines.

Vintage Photos of the Corvette that Never Was

The key to unearthing gems from the Petersen Publishing photo archive is knowing how to navigate the archive’s logbooks. The loose-leaf binders hold a chronological record of all the film that passed through the company’s photo department beginning in 1955. Photo jobs were logged by date, the magazine requesting the photos and a brief—and sometimes cryptic—description of the photo subject. A vague description like “Detroit trip,” for example, could encompass visual records of all sorts of activi...

1931 Ford Model A Coupe is Resurrected into a Very Traditional, Hemi-Powered Hot Rod

DIY. It takes a certain amount of faith to dive headlong into a do-it-yourself, traditional hot rod build project, especially one that begins with a basket-case shell of an old Ford. Faith that you’ll find the parts you need. Faith that you can marry disparate—and sometimes ancient—components into some cohesive whole. Faith that the end result will not only move under its own power but do so safely, while looking good, too. Many of us have the dream. We know a lot of people with garages full of...

[Report] Surface changes on comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko suggest a more active past

The Rosetta spacecraft spent ~2 years orbiting comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko, most of it at distances that allowed surface characterization and monitoring at submeter scales. From December 2014 to June 2016, numerous localized changes were observed, which we attribute to cometary-specific weathering, erosion, and transient events driven by exposure to sunlight and other processes. While the localized changes suggest compositional or physical heterogeneity, their scale has not resulted in subst...
