1944-chrysler-m4a4-sherman-tank-front

The M4 is undoubtedly the most famous World War II Allied tank. It was the most-produced American tank during World War II, with close to 50,000 units (all versions included).

The British gave the tank its nickname, “Sherman,” when they got delivery of their first units through the Lend-Lease agreement. “Sherman” referenced the American Civil War Union General William Tecumseh Sherman. The U.S. Army quickly adopted this nickname.

This M4A4 Sherman tank recently joined the Normandy Tank Museum collection and Read More

Custom tailored to the dimensions of the high-performance chassis, the Speedster’s body was built in Packard’s Read More

And with that, CSX2000 was running.

The entire company’s finances rested on this prototype — and securing a successful deal for Shelby American Read More

1953 Cadillac Series 62 Coupe by Ghia

Admiring the car offered here, one would be hard-pressed to guess its origins as anything but Alfa Romeo in the early 1950s. Only its very American size and presence belie its roots, as do the subtle Cadillac script and badging.

Underneath its design, the creation of Ghia principal Luigi Segre is the same Series 62 that the average neighborhood banker drove to work in 1953. Such is the power of a coachbuilder to make over a car’s entire personality, transforming Read More
