From our good friend at 607Visual: We saw KRINK paint a Mini a few years ago and we haven't seen much since, but Mini is back with LA's Geoff McFetridge (cover artist of our September 2013 issue). In conjunction with the Burton European Open, Mini commissioned McFetridge to paint this one-of-a-kind Mini Countryman.

Australian based artist Ornamental Conifer (Nico Sclater) was recently asked to custom paint 10 motorcycle tanks to be given away as awards at the fifth annual One Motorcycle Show. Known for his stunning, perfectly crafted, hand painted jackets, helmets, signs, motorcycles, murals and more, these lucky winners didn’t just get an award… they got a beautiful work of art.

For years, Juxtapoz favorites Robert Williams, Eric White, Von Dutch, and Big Daddy Roth have depicted their love of car culture and cinema with a sense of nostalgia and pride. There have even been a few Drive Ins sneaking their way into the works. Sadly, if you live in America, that slice of history is leaving us, as many Drive-In theaters are vanishing across the US due to high costs. Pretty cool then that Honda has a new campaign to help save this slice of cinematic history. See how @Honda is helping save the Drive-In with their new project, #SaveTheDriveIn.

Usually car ads have some sort of post rain-soaked highway in California and a evening drive by a comfortable man in a casual suit feeling the power of his German engineered car. Or there are 300 people in colorful tracksuits dancing around some fuel-efficient vehicle. Both are the norm.

How to you honor a going-on venerable and luxury car maker like Porsche at a major car festival in England? Well, Gerry Judah was tasked with creating a monument to the 50th birthday of the 911, and what we came up with was a massive, powerful, defying sculpture that featured 3 911s sprung high above the ground. As Judah noted, "I wanted to show design in a perfect moment." Think he got it.

Kustom Kulture 2 was not just yesterday’s leftover hash or a nostalgic stroll down American Graffiti Lane. Nor was it Western Exterminators 3 as dubbed by John Pochna (profiled in Juxtapoz #1) who brought what was a grassroots tradition in places like Kim’s sign shop and Mooneyes to its first gallery show.

Art Basel Hong Kong, the inaugural edition of Basel in Asia, had a ton of sculpture and installation works throughout the fair. One of the ones we loved especially was Jakarta-based sculptor Ichwan Noor's transforming, fusing, morphing five vintage 1953 Volkswagen Beetles into these crazy installed spheres. This one was in the Mondecor Jakarta Gallery booth, and on sale for $88k.

When we think of watch and fashion brand, Nooka, we think of futuristic looking watch faces made for casual outings. Makes sense that Nooka are behind a futuristic statement: a Delorean Taxi now on the streets of NYC. Designer Mike Lubrano wanted to have something that matched the company's futuristic philosophy. Back to the Future it is.
