Today is the birthday of Antoni Gaudí, one of the most famous and recognizable architects in the world, often considered the father of the Catalan Modernista movement. 

If the revolutionary architect were still alive today, he’d be 160 years old. Of course since he passed away in 1926, the world has changed. Yet his designs still stand proudly in the city he loved so much and called home: Barcelona.

The royal family of Monaco has decided to reorganize their automotive fleet and they’re letting the public in on their vehicular spoils at a very low cost.

Car nuts will have many vehicles to feast their eyes on. The collection features an eclectic mix of classic pre-war vehicles, diminutive city cars, American muscle models, and a specially designed Mercedes for the late Prince.
