Doing It Right | Gimme Fuel

When the legendary Argentine motorhead was asked how he won 5 Formula One races, he calmly replied “Very Easy. Accelerate more. Break less”.

Smell like fuel, Have the grit and take the Carraciola Karrusell like Fangio. Accelerate more, break less.

The Greasy Garage – The Restoration of a BMW R50

It was Richard Costello’s wish to have his son rebuild his once lustrous BMW R50. Born in 1958, it rolled out of the factory confines of the Bayerische Motoren Werke plant in Munich and would have a history that spanned 53 years. His son Bill Costello put together this video of its restoration and perfectly sums up this great machines life and its impact on the family which treasured it.

Well done Mr. Costello, Ride on.
