Automobiliac Video of the Week: Lancia Rally cars on Japanese roads

Here's a video I had to share just for its sheer surrealism. Imagine you are driving along a Japanese highway and come across an Alitalia-liveried Lancia Stratos in the other lane. Now imagine you happen to be driving your own Martini-liveried Lancia Delta HF Integrale...too cool!

Here is a wonderfully dreamy little video from the same youtube account from inside the Stratos, along with a pleasing Hip-Hop beat. This guy is really adept at taking awesome footage with one hand while driving with the other!


Automobiliac Video of the Week: Disney's Magic Highway

In 1958, Disney created this fascinating and creative film to showcase what the highways of tomorrow might be like.  While some of the infrastructure notions are quite far fetched, a surprising number of the car-centered innovations have actually come to fruition.  In the late 1950s, the future must have seemed so boundless with possibility.  If only we could recapture that optimism and open-mindedness in today's cynical, pessimistic, and short-sighted age.
