The perfect example of the sexy 60’s style, the 1968 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ40 ($98,000) is an immaculate rendition of the original SUV. There’s a beast beneath the hood with a powerful 3.9 liter engine which has been fully restored, and most of the original features, such as the 3 gear transmission and the electrics, have been faithfully retained. With only small tweaks to provide a touch of modern convenience, such as the electric ignition, this flawless SUV is one to keep and love.

And for extra style, you can choose from 15 different finishes so you’ll be sure to find one that will go with any home décor.
Again brothers Justin & Jarrod Del Prado have created another work of art, the Alpaca By DP Customs ($NFS). Justin and Jarrod wanted a bike to sit permanently in their shop, so they rebuilt one of Justin's personal bikes, a 1979 1000cc Ironhead Sportster. Their goal was to build a hot rod that was low and long.Customizations include a bobber hardtail, a rebuilt engine with forged pistons and new valve and spring, and new turbo, aluminum intake and exhaust system. The 19" front wheels were created by Thomason Performance, with a 15x5 steel wheel from a car, modified to work with a Harley Hub. It looks like the boys finally have the perfect bike for their shop.
If ever there was a movie that the majority of guys could relate to it's Something About Mary ($7).

Starring Ben Stiller, Cameron Diaz and Matt Dillon and directed by the Farrelly brothers, this is a movie of comedic genius that will have you laughing out loud however many times you've seen it.

Victory Motorcycles wanted to create a production bike based on their prototype V-twin engine used in their Project 156 racing bike. They called on drag racing champion Urs Erbacher to make their vision a reality. Erbacher infuses all of his creations with a European flair that makes you want to get on and hit the gas. The Victory Ignition Concept ($TBA) is no exception. The engine is a liquid-cooled four-valve engine with double overhead cams. Complete engine specifications will be released in months to come. Additional features include alloy wheels wrapped in Metzeler 3.5" x 17" on the front and 6" x 17" on the rear. I can't wait for this beast to hit the production line.
