Looking for an alternative to the more common Land Cruisers, Broncos and Defenders everyone seems to be parking in their garages when they want a vintage SUV? Now’s your chance to own a 1952 Alfa Romeo 1900 M AR 51 ‘Matta’. Heading across the block as part of Gooding & Company’s Pebble Beach Auctions on August 18/19, this truck is a rare surviving example of Alfa Romeo’s versatile military vehicle. Originally delivered new to the Italian army, this Matta (a variation on the Italian word for crazy) has passed through a few private collector’s hands since then and was ultimately put through the ringer for a comprehensive restoration to military standards. This Matta is titled in California and comes with tools (jack, tool roll, pick axe, shovel, gas can) and a collection of original documentation. We can’t even imagine the kind of trouble we’d get into with this crazy truck parked in the garage.

 You can’t have a fall evening without a fire. And you can’t have a fire without a Cowboy Cauldron. They’re built from solid plate steel, meaning they’ll last a lifetime or two and they come in four different sizes with elevated basins that can be adjusted to any height. We’re going with The Urbaan Cowboy® because it’s perfect for entertaining at home.  With a 30″ diameter basin, it is more than large enough to have a nice fire, but still small enough to pack into a pickup truck and take it with you.  Can you imagine the envy when we bust this puppy out at a tailgate or the beach? We haven’t seen a more handsome fire. You?  Best of all, Cool Material readers get an exclusive deal.
