You know you are summering in the Hamptons when...the Range Rover is so popular that you pass dozens of RR’s no matter where you go. It is essentially the summer staple car…and the GofGHamptons mobile happens to be one. After spotting not one, not two, not three, but FOUR Range Rovers parked alongside one another on Main St. in Sag Harbor, NY we affirmed our previous suspicion that the Range Rover is truly the official Hamptons staple car...

This flat-bed green Gator truck was spotted in the parking lot of this weekends Super Saturday event. The truck was happily nestled among the countless Mercedes', Range Rovers, and medley of other luxury cars . As displayed on the back, this auto runs on diesel thereby upping its Hamptons coolness and intimidation factor by a one hundred. Adding a fun touch to the car is its fake Hawaii license plate advertising the message "Hang-Loose" on the back. [Hamptons Cars] More»
[Photo via Twitter] Some of the smallest cars that exist are those you get in your cereal box as a prize. However, this tiny auto was not found at the bottom of your breakfast, it was spotted outside of the Blue & Cream store in East Hampton, NY. By merely looking at the parking space in the photo, you can tell that this miniature car hardly takes up half of the spot... More»
[Photo via Manonthemove] This blast from the past, Volkswagen Type 181 Kurierwagen, was spotted outside of Georgica Restaurant & Lounge in East Hampton earlier this May. Supposedly the car was abandoned by its original owners. This automobile is also known as The Trekker and stemmed from the original Volkswagen Beetle. Wish we knew where this car was now?

[James Brooks in our Volkswagen Touareg V6 TDI] Team Hampton left the Range Rover at home this weekend and tried out the latest Green car from VW. The VW Touareg TDI pronounced "tore-reg" got 25 miles per gallon on the Montauk highway (quite a difference in our gas bill this weekend!) Also, it runs on diesel. We took the thing all over, starting at the Thrillist party in Southampton. Here's some things we learned... More»
[Photos by ADRIEL REBOH for PMc] Separating it from traditional VW buses, this particular automobile is unique due to it's impressive paint job. It looks like a few graffiti artists got a hold of some paint and spray cans and used this car as their canvas. We are unsure if the painted van belonged to a Surf Lodge patron or maybe it is the designated Surf Lodge mobile...It certainly should be. Hopefully we will see some more of this funk mobile driving around Montauk this summer. [Hamptons Cars] More»
Spotted from afar, taking a picture of this three-wheeled vehicle was rather difficult considering how nimble and lithe it was. This vehicle moved like a motorcycle, but had the speed of a race car. However, after some research it appears that this mobile is a T-Rex made by Campagna. More»
These two cars were spotted owner-less and key-less at Day & Night. Somehow the owners did not seem to fully understand the concept of valet. It works like this...Step 1: you pull up to the valet, Step 2: an attendant approaches your car and asks for your keys, and Step 3: you leave your car and the parking attendant parks it. Unfortunately, the owners of these two cars must have missed Step 2... More»
This British luxury car was spotted parked in the lot of Tiana Beach. At a quick glance this automobile looked like a fine antique, yet quickly dispelling that notion were the happy face Boardy Barn stickers pasted all over the car. The best sticker was the one spotted on top of the auto's MG front symbol... More»
This silver bullet was quietly nestled in a parking spot on the street in Sag Harbor. Forget the Range Rover, driving around in an antique car now sort of seems like a right of passage when in the Hamptons. Wishing my car knowledge was better, identifying this slick silvery auto is a tricky one. Any ideas GofG readers as to the make of this classic Hamptons automobile? [Hamptons Car of the Day]
During the summer in the Hamptons, it becomes routine to see luxury cars speckled along Montauk Highway. Yet, seeing a motorcycle is a far rarer occurrence and a pleasant treat. This two-wheeled chopper was spotted in the town of Westhampton Beach. Although its only a single engine scooter, spotting this motorcycle revived my secret desire to someday own a Vespa.

We sat down with Anne Pasternak for a few questions about Creative Time's past and future, as well as the importance of having an awareness about public art in the city.
