Winnipeg Roughriders Motorcycle Club

This fantastic photograph shows the Winnipeg Roughriders Motorcycle Club at a hill climb near Miami (Manitoba, Canada) in 1945.

Nissan Skyline Cutaway Wallpaper

The Nissan Skyline GT-R is without question one of the most important sports cars ever to come out of Japan, I know there are contrarians out there who’ll attempt to argue with me about that statement, but these people are simpletons and it’s best to ignore them.
