When it comes to a weekend off-roader, I’m at a loss to think of anything cooler than a World War II era M3 Half-Track. The M3 pictured here is an original 1943 unit, it’s been fully restored and is now listed as being parade ready, but I say to hell with that.

The thodio iBox XC is probably the closest anyone has yet come to making a perfect, portable summer stereo – that doesn’t look like a mass-produced piece of plastic.
The Lamborghini Countach is one of the most instantly recognisable motor cars ever made, the styling was a staggering departure from its predecessor (the Miura) – so much so that on the unveiling of the prototype in 1971 a member of the press exclaimed “countach!” a local phrase meaning “holy smokes!”. The name suited the car so well that Lamborghini adopted it, and a legend was born.
This pair of two-tone acetate glasses by Cutler and Gross have a solid, understated appeal and it’s easy to image that they could be worn by a writer, a rocket scientist or a small town mechanic and still look perfectly suitable.

The Moto Guzzi 850 T3 is one of my personal favourite bikes from the long running Italian motorcycle manufacturer, the “850” is the engine capacity with the “T” designation standing for “Turismo” and the “3” referencing the triple disc braking system.
We featured Knockaround Sunglasses here on Silodrome a few months ago and they were hugely popular, for those who’ve never heard of them – they’re UV400 proof sunglasses with FDA approved impact resistant lenses that only cost $25 USD each.
This is the Ducati Manx by Rad Ducati, it’s based on a 2007, 800cc Monster but as you can see, it’s been fairly heavily tweaked. The primary changes to the bike are the new fuel tank and seat, both available in kit form as either glass fibre (€600) or carbon fibre (€800), they’re designed to bolt onto standard Ducati Monster models including the 620, 695, 1000 Ie, S4, S2R 80 and S2R 1000.
