I like to look at going green as a lifestyle movement, it’s more about changing your mind, actions, and habits from selfish, wasteful, and unhealthy to more thoughtful, more peaceful, more healthy. Pretty loaded statement huh, yeah, but through our new series of “Gentlemen Going Green” features we will help you understand and adapt to this “better” lifestyle.
And no, we’re not just going to be spitting out a bunch of facts about unplugging your appliances when you’re going on vacation or not preheating the oven for more than 10 minutes to save energy, I mean those things are great, and those types of basic conservation tips will be included in our series, but not in the usual way. We’re going to somewhat focus on products that will work to improve your lifestyle while indirectly reducing your “carbon footprint”.
We found it appropriate to jumpstart this series with the Ford Fiesta, a car that was built to be stylish, extremely user friendly, and efficient (aka “green”).
Not too long ago the Ford Motor Company invited The Urban Gentleman, and two other prominent bloggers, to fully partake in their “Inspired by Color” program. Along with project runway alum Michael Knight, renowned fashion stylist Memsor Kamarake, fashion trailblazer Constance White, LeToya Luckett, Tony Shellman, and a few others we were able to get a very personal look into the makings, features, and design of the new Ford Fiesta as well as add to the Inspired By Color campaign.
Last Weekend (not this past one, but the one before) after attending the Georgia Tech Auto Show I went out to eat with family and friends.
Upon entering the restaurant I found myself staring at this really clean old-school American car and I couldn’t figure out what car it was… I feel that I’m a pretty knowledgeable car person, I can name the make, model, and year of almost any car (though I may have a tad bit more knowledge of foreign luxury cars), but this car just left me drawing a blank. My brother quickly told me it was the Dodge Challenger… I’m thinking “Niiiiice, what a tight car, but how did I miss it especially if its been out for a little over a year now”. I really don’t know how I missed this, but I think the car is cool. I’m really loving all the retro cars American automakers have decided to re-make : Mustang, Challenger, Camaro, and maybe the Firebird.

I was taking my monthly stroll through a few auto blogs and saw something that was really cool… a wooden car.
Work on the project has slowed so Harmon and his colleagues can finish school, but the Splinter continues to garner attention having appeared in a flattering piece published by Automobile Magazine. While we wait for Team Splinter to graduate and finish the car once and for all, take a look at these new high-res renderings of the arts and crafts supercar.
The Splinter is one of those rare projects that’s truly inspiring, and Harmon seeks to prove that wood is anything but an outdated material with no place – outside the dashes of expensive luxury cars, of course – in modern automobiles. Point taken.
