Road Rules

Road Rules

Regardless of our background, ethnicity, race or gender, every once in a while we all gain enough brownie points to thank ourselves for our tireless service and hard work. Occasionally it can be a holiday, dinner with friends, loved ones or even an automobile of choice.

We look back to mid 20th century America to look forwards. Taking queues from classic performance sports cars, the most Avant Garde jazz musicians, visual artists, poets, architects, philosophers, athletes, political leaders and writers. Some famous, infamous and not-so-famous figures in Black culture who claimed and then redefined Ivy style, the dominant look of the time.

We recently headed to F12 Performance with our friend Wayne Colbourne for a morning of the finest luxury car test driving, and we were in the best company driving the Ferrari California T, Lamborghini Huracan and Porsche 718 Cayman.
