An Afternoon at Storm King

We recently made the best of an opportunity to test drive the new 2013 Ford Explorer Sport, and took the midsize SUV upstate to Storm King for the afternoon. Ford has a rich history of Arts funding, so we thought it a nice tie-in. We made it to the magnificent sculpture park and back safely and in style, bumping selections from our Sound Advice series on the way. Add in all of this with the bonus of not getting a single speeding ticket during the trip, and it made for a great day.

Tiny Art Cars

Every year for as long as they’ve been in memory, Scion does an edition of art cars. 2013’s customizable model was the Scion iQ (a small car that can fit a large man) and the project featured artists such as the guys behind Mishka, David Choe, and Andrew Schoultz. As evidenced by the car above, the results are pretty fantastic.
