To the untrained eye, the Gold King Mine Ghost Town is just a collection of rusty hulks, but to industrial Americana addicts and vintage truck and 4x4 enthusiasts, it’s a treasure trove of history.

Ram Trucks hasn’t been afraid to prove the off-road prowess of its 4x4s. For the past several years the company has used the Overland Expo West in Flagstaff, Arizona, as the jumping off point for backcountry adventures with journalists. This year, the company invited us to pilot the 3/4-ton Power Wagon and 1/2-ton Rebel on a dirt trip through the Arizona desert, hills, woods, and backroads to the historic Gold King Mine Ghost Town in Jerome, Arizona. The 2017 route wasn’t overly difficult. Most of the year, a stock 4x4 could traverse all of the trail, so we packed our Magellan TRX7 to track the entire route. You can see the map and follow our path here http://bit.ly/2pslv29 on trxtrailhead.com.

Lamborghini Impounded After Two Speeding Tickets in 30 Minutes

  Lamborghini Impounded After Two Speeding Tickets in 30 Minutes The Gold Rush Rally may have lost some of the allure it once had but it is still very-much alive. The 2017 rally goes from Beverly Hills, California and travels to Las Vegas, Nevada after taking the scenic route through Washington. According to Washington State Trooper Brian Moore, 10 cars have been stopped in Kittitas and Grant county that are involved in the rally. As a precautionary measure, troopers have stationed additional patrols along the route due to the large volume of exotic cars flying through the area. Apparently, one Lamborghini owner didn't learn his lesson after getting pulled over for going 103 miles per hour on a state highway. According to reports, the same Lamborghini driver was pulled over a second time less than 30 minutes later for going 99 mph. The Italian supercar was subsequently impounded and the driver was cited for reckless driving. The buy-in for the Gold Rush Rally allegedly costs $20,000 and provides participants with a "premiere automotive lifestyle rally." .@wastatepatrol stopped 10+ exotic cars EB I-90 Kittitas/Grant County near 100mph.

This Mysterious 'Ghost' Jaguar E-Type Is Headed to Auction .
<p>This Series III E-Type has quite a story to tell.</p>This E-Type (technically an XKE, since it was made for the U.S. market) was built specifically for the family of Graham W. Whitehead, the president of Jaguar Cars North America at the time. Instead of the 5.3-liter Jaguar V-12 engine that was standard in the Series III E-Type, this is one of the few built with a DOHC 4.2-liter XK inline-six from the previous generation. It's apparently the only 2+2 variant with this engine, making it truly one-of-a-kind.
