WELCOMING FALL AND THE DRIVING GLOVE

As someone with a fetish for high-performance cars…one thing I love are driving gloves. Yes, some may say they are a bit over the top but the feel of such supple, buttery leather against the steering wheel, providing just the right amount of “stickiness” as you take those tight turns… A serious car deserves theContinue reading “WELCOMING FALL AND THE DRIVING GLOVE”
