In 2009, Mike Sandone and his soon-to-be wife, Sofie, took an epic road trip across the mountains, beaches, and salt flats of Sonora, Mexico, in an old Jeep Wrangler. They wanted to be highly mobile, so most nights they slept in the cramped car. Sandone kept a checklist of…

Back in the eighties, vintage Land Cruisers were fetish objects to Tim McGrath and his buddies at Albuquerque’s Eldorado High School.

On November 2, 2014, then 28-year-old Stephan Shay ran the toughest race of his life. Not only was the New York City Marathon freezing cold and rainy, but eight years earlier, Shay’s older brother Ryan died from a heart attack on the same course during an Olympic Trials race, also at the age of 28. Shay finished fourth among Americans and sixteenth overall.

James Crowe didn’t start out a motorcycle guy. After a childhood filled with romping around the British Columbia backcountry on skis and mountain bikes, he became fascinated with combustion-powered vehicles and landed an apprenticeship at Steve’s Auto Restorations, a legendary shop in Portland, Oregon, in 2006.

Professional mountain biker Andrew Taylor (sponsored by brands including Adidas, Norco, Gravity, Bell, Kenda, and Smith) knew he wanted to hit the open road. Originally he thought he’d buy a classic VW bus, but then he found this 1994 Ford E350 short bus for $2,000 on Craigslist.

Long hauls to the mountains can get boring. More often than not, any beautiful landscape outside the car window is blocked by a huge serving of McDonald’s fries plastered on the side of a semi-truck. Now, a new project in Spain is transforming these eyesores into something people will actually want to look at. For the Truck Art Project, some of Spain’s best contemporary artists are partnering with commercial shipping company Palibex to convert 100 out-of-service trucks into moving canvases. The project launched with 10 trucks this February, with plans to introduce more this year.
