Aston Martin’s DB7, produced for a decade starting in ’94, was never much of a headturner. After all, it was cobbled together from leftover Jaguar parts. Its greatest strength was the big V12 motor. England’s Evanta Motors saw potential in the DB7 as a candidate for conversion into something cool. Their DB4 Zagato Evocation conversion puts the DB7 with its modern features like tiptronic shifting and airbags into a classic DB4 chassis for a look that is straight up classic.
How cool is this?

If the very word poetry sets your teeth on edge, you may just be the perfect audience for this new book of linguistic ninja vomit from low-brow postmodern poetic genius Michael Robbins. Alien Vs. Predator is a new collection from the young New Yorker-published poet who is turning bloody chunks of pop culture into art that regular poetry people are sure to hate. Photo credit: New York Times

Bacon makes it better, no doubt. But if you’re talking about creating the ultimate BLT sandwich, you can’t leave it all up to the bacon. Instead of the utterly flavorless pairing of white bread and iceberg lettuce, think gourmet. And if you’re too lazy to think, just click over to this recipe and try to follow along.
How awkward is it when you’re rocking some tunes in your earbuds and some random walks up and starts talking to you? If you had some big, high-tech over ear headphones, people would know better and just leave you alone. The Crossfade M-80 will keep you insulated in your own world with vibrant bass, vivid mids, super highs, and some cool tech called BLISS Noise Isolation.
You’ve surely heard that everything is bigger in Texas. It applies not only to pickup trucks, women’s hairdos & crime rates but also to the big ol’ grill brushes from Texas Brushes. With long, hefty wooden or steel handles and crust busting stainless steel bristles, they’ll scrape your barbecue grill cleaner than a billygoat in a berry bush.
Right out of the wrapper, Triumph’s Scrambler model is pretty sick. It’s packed with a classic-looking 865cc Paralles twin motor and a trim package made for on or off-road action. The beefed-up, modified custom you see here was built by two skillful European craftsmen for Germany’s annual summer Triumph festival called Tridays, and its classic grass-track race called the Rumble. Looks like a winner to us. Source
