As we’re sure you’re well aware by now, we’ve got a serious thing for properly restored vintage SUVs. Land Rover restorations will always be at the top of the list because there’s just something truly special about an old school Defender. English builder Arkonik–one of our favorites–is back with what may be the perfect beach cruiser in their appropriately named SoCal D90. Like everything else from Arkonik that has graced these pages, the SoCal D90 has upgrades and modern touches in all the right places–without sacrificing all the vintage cool and design ethos that made the original so good. The restoration of this 1989 Defender includes a list of everything you could possibly want: Java Black exterior, Camden leather interior, front heated seats, Pioneer Touch screen display with CarPlay, backup camera and Defender GPS security, 16″ Chawton White wheels wrapped in BFG All Terrain rubbers, full rebuild or recondition of mechanicals including a 5-speed manual transmission. It also includes a tan soft-top, but it looks so good with it off you’ll probably never use it.

[Shop]  We might not all agree on watches, wallets or other pieces of the everyday carry, but the one thing we can all agree on is our mutual love of building things out of small bricks. Forget plastic building bricks that can only be used with specific mats and upgrade your conference call and boring meeting building with this 1:12 scale mini cinder block pallet set. With 24 miniature cinder blocks and one pallet per set, this has everything you need to build a great foundation for the big box creation of your dreams. Whether you’re making a small creation of your own devising with the 24 pieces that come with it, or adding multiples to build something more grandiose, this is the best way to build when you’re not using plastic.
