Asphalt Valhalla

"Valhalla (Old Norse Valhöll, ‘the hall of the fallen’) is the hall where the god Odin houses the dead whom he deems worthy of dwelling with him." - Norse Mythology for Smart People.


Asphalt Valhalla is the blog where a nominal descendant of the Norse god Odin (at a minimum, my great great great grand-/all-father (#NotLoki)) brings forth images and stories of the cars I deem worthy of dwelling here.

Sometimes, it's the style or performance that makes a car one of the honored. Sometimes it's the defiant refusal to rust away. Sometimes, it's the stories, whether the car was plot, setting or MacGuffin.


The Quick Hitters

Sometimes, a story only needs a line or image or two.

Asphalt Hel

Equal and Opposite. It’s physics. It’s The Force. In Norse mythology, those warriors who were not deemed worthy of Valhalla were sent off to Hel. Hel might be bad, but more often it was just "somewhere else." Asphalt Hel is where you'll find less accomplished cars and the mere survivors. We love them - we just don't venerate them like the grail cars.
