Millican is named after the eco-adventure nut, Millican Dalton. They strive to make gear that outlives us and can be passed down to our children and grandchildren. Their Gladstone Bag by Millican ($370) is just such a piece. The bag is great for overnight trips or weekend excursions. It features a large 38 liter interior compartment with false bottom so you can separate play from work, a number of interior and exterior pockets to fit your smaller electronics and a large padded internal pocket that fits a 15" laptop. The Millican has an outer fabric that is made from 100% organic cotton weatherproof canvas, has an interior lining made from 100% organic cotton, and straps made from 70% vegetable tanned leather. Check out the video after the break of the Millican getting ready for an overnighter.(more…)
It's not an illusion, the G63 AMG 6X6 by Mercedes Benz ($500,000) has six wheels. The G63 6X6 was originally built for the Australian military in 2011, so this thing can go anywhere. The civilian version will be powered by a twin-turbo charged 5.5 liter v-8, which will provide you with 544 horses and 560 foot lb's of torque. You'll be driving on some monster tires, each coming in at 37 inches. If you have half a mill burning a hole in your pocket, the G63 AMG 6X6 might be worth consideration.

Lexus is looking to take its image from a purely luxury brand to something with a little oomph. This change has never been so evident than with their reveal of the new 2105 Lexus RC 350 F ($TBA).

Additional features include 19 inch aluminum wheels, decked out in black metallic paint, and a sharp interior in Rioja Red leather complete with contrast stitching. The Lexus RC 350 F is expected to hit showrooms later this fall.
I love this truck. If you don't already know, ICON is based out of Chatsworth, California. They take classic cars, restore them and add modern performance and accessories. We've covered their trucks in the past, but I have to say their latest, the ICON Dodge Power Wagon Crew Cab HEMI ($CALL), may be the best. This beauty started off as a '64 Power Wagon, but like their motto says, the chassis, powertrain, and engine have been completely modernized. To bring this bad boy further up to date they used a number of parts from a Dodge Mega Cab, added a supercharger to the HEMI, a kore-Fox Suspension, and a ceramic stainless exhaust.The entire interior has been completely updated as well. The seats still utilize the same frames, but are now stuffed with Tempurpedic foam and wrapped in soft luxurious leather. The sound system boasts an iPad mini and the entertainment center screen and includes Focal speakers being driven by JL Audio amps. The whole kit sits on black 17-inch wheels. This car was a one off, but if you have a '64 sitting around the garage, I'm sure they'll make you one just like it.[gallery type="rectangular" ids="18745,18744,18743,18742,18741,18740,18739,18738,18737,18736,18735"]
