In 1982 the Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA) introduced a set of racing and rally regulations known as “Group B” that would lead to the creation of the golden era of rallying. This introduced some of the fastest, most sophisticated, most powerful and, ultimately, most dangerous rally cars ever produced. As part of the upcoming Quail Lodge Auction on the Monterey Peninsula, Bonhams has an entire Group B Rally Car Collection, and they’re offering you the chance to own seven different “Killer Bees” from the golden age of rallying. With the combination of the last RWD car to win the World Rally Championship (WRC), a car similar to the one that won Pike’s Peak, and all auctions going off without reserve, the options are ridiculous. 1975 Lancia Stratos HF Stradale with design by Bertone. 1985 Audi Sport Quattro S1. 1986 Ford RS 200 Evolution with design by Ghia. 1985 Lancia Delta S4 Stradale. 1983 Lancia-Abarth 037 Stradale with design by Pininfarina. 1985 Peugeot 205 Turbo 16. 1986 Ford RS200 with design by Ghia. Any vehicle from this auction is something we’d consider an affordable dream car. The Bonhams Quail Lodge Auction is set to take place August 17 of this year.

Laguiole-Oyster-Knife-IF2

While you can go all MacGyver and shuck oysters with a screwdriver or other household tool, we highly recommend you invest in a good oyster knife. Why? Well, for starters, it’s safer. The best oyster doesn’t taste so hot when you’ve got something sharp stuck in your palm. Secondly, it makes the process easier and a bit more refined. Laguiole is an iconic name in knife making and the French brand has you covered when it comes to shucking thanks to the Laguiole Oyster Knife. Made of 420 stainless steel and complete with a wood handle, the Oyster Knife measures 6 ¼” and makes easy work of even the toughest shell. You just need to supply the cocktail sauce.
