Hi guys, for sure you recognized that blogging last time was focused on B74 Selected Goods. This is easy to explain. Since years the B74 Concept Store located in Frankfurt “Mainhattan” and my Design Agency are working together and with the conception and the Art Direction of the B74 Selected Goods Online Shop this great teamwork got more intensive. Now while the shop is going its own first steps but my work is not finished. As a constant Crew member I will support the B74 in all Social Media activities like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and the new B74 Blog linked to the new Online Store. I will also try to do post “pure” Life Time Gear posts in future but there will always be an interaction between and/ I hope a win-win-situation! Today I did my second blogpost with such nice photos we got directly from FILSON. Here just some of this nice shots. More @ the blog-site. pics | © FILSON



Sorry guys for doing less posts the last weeks, but business is heavy. If you know, I am a great CAMARO fan, but if I would drive an all terrain vehicle there would be just two choices: a JEPP WRANGLER or a LAND ROVER DEFENDER. This morning I found this offer @ great GEAR PATROL shop. For 47.500 US$ this beauty could be yours. Here what GP says about this “One Ten”: “In 1983, Land Rover launched the One Ten a name referring to the purpose-built utility vehicle’s 110-inch wheelbase. Starting in the early 1990s, these models became known as Defender 110s to cement the model nomenclature. (The 110’s slightly shorter sibling, the Defender 90, featured a 93-inch wheelbase.) By 1985 all Defender models were running permanent four-wheel-drive and more modern features than their predecessors,  like one-piece windscreens and updated interiors. In January of 2016, after 67 years, Land Rover announced it would finally end production of the Defender, committing it to history as the king of overlanders. This pickup-style model was sourced in Switzerland, where its watchmaker owner restored the car to its original glory, including a rebuild of the 3.5-liter V8 and four-speed manual gearbox. He also added a four-barrel carburetor; Exmoor seats and interior parts; a complete repaint; and a new clutch,  new disc brakes,  new calipers and a new canvas top. Since his meticulous restoration about five years ago,  the truck has been driven only 5,000 kilometers.The vehicle was imported by Dutch Safari Company.” To inquire, email to If I could, I would … all pics | Gear Patrol


Love this Chevy shit. I am a great CAMARO fan and also a driver of an amazing 4th generation orange beast. But beside i rather love nearly all the classic Chevys from the 50s to the late 70s and early 80s. So iI was really surprised that one of my absolute favorites will be produced again: the Chevrolet El Camino. Found this information @ They write that 2016 the El Camino will be launched. And this what the Bold Ride site tells about this spectacular launch: “2016 Chevy Camaro’s debut is just around the corner. With it, comes the new lightweight Alpha platform and a host of different engine and power options. Indeed, the next generation Camaro is looking to take on Ford’s Mustang and hoping to squash the rivalry once and for all. But the use of GM’s Alpha platform had us wondering what else Chevy could do with it. It already sits under the ATS, CTS  and upcoming Camaro, but there seems to be endless possibilities for the lighter, more advanced frame. That’s where this El Camino SS concept comes into play. Sent to us on Facebook by way of the Camaro5 forum,  this future look at a new El Camino has us drooling.” The original El Camino was produced between 1959/1960 and then from 1964–1987.

isn’t that truck beautiful? maybe you remember that i did a post about ICON’s FORD BRONCO? the THRIFTMASTER was released november 2013 at SEMA. in 2014 los angeles based ICON will only build 5 ultimate THIRFTMASTER pick ups. each truck will be signed and sequentially numbered – for a pricing range from $220,000 to 250.000. in the future there will be a wider range of this beautiful remade truck. here some facts about the THIRFTMASTER: “This first, “Ultimate Edition” ICON Thriftmaster, comes in your choice of body color (matte or gloss finish), with your choice of manual or automatic transmission, naturally aspirated or with an intercooled supercharger. Otherwise, it comes one way… loaded. Standard equipment includes four wheel disc brakes, A/C, PW, PDL, Wi-Fi Hot Spot, Web-enabled Kenwood and Audison digital audio, NAV, tilt column, copious insulation, Bison hide seating, Wilton wool carpet, Alcantara headliner, smoked glass, and innovative brushed nickel plated trim with aircraft ceramic clear coat … Never before has a classic pick up managed such comfort and handling. With approximately 315 horsepower, which can be upgrated to 435HP, 5.3 Ltr. V8, there is plenty of power on hand. With Wilwood oversized disc brakes at all four corners, 60-0 is equally impressive. The Platform specific Art Morrison chassis is unparalleled in its balance and handling characteristics … (press release damn, what a unique truck … with a unique price for sure. it is with all the things ICONS does like the JEEP CJ, the TOYOTAs FJ and the BRONCO. can’t stop staring at it … all pics | © ICON


damn, this is really cool, isn’t it? this driving refrigerator CHEVY truck was weighting 6.8 tons. it was made by 76 old JULIAN, an ice artist who is working around the world for example president and actor parties in dubai, thailand, new zealand or india. he is making lounges and bars of ice. but building an ice truck was the first time for the man out of HENSALL, a very small village in ONTARIO, canada. the truck was build for a TV-SPOT for car components, in this case especcially for batteries. the motto was “TESTED FOR LIFE IN CANADA”. beside, with a drive on the highway they wanted to get an entry in the GUINNESS BOOK OF RECORDS. not so easy, imagine that when the 8 cylinder big block runs it gets really hot in the motor compartment. so they had to cool this section massiv down while running the engine. the CHEVY had to drive at least 1,5 kilometers with more than 20 km/h to get the entry in the book. a special stuntman drove the CHEVY about 4 kilometers with the needed speed at the 12th of december 2013. after 40 hours melting there was just the engine and the chassis left. what a project … pics | iceculture
