1957 Porsche 356A Speedster Garage Find

www.tedisgraphic.com

The 356 offered is one that Porsche enthusiasts dream of finding: a virtually complete and largely original, numbers-matching T-1 Speedster that has been stored in a dry Texas garage for more than 40 years.

This car was carefully covered up for some 40 years, until noted Barn Find author Tom Cotter recently discovered it in Texas. The 60-horsepower Type 616/1 1600 Normal engine and 4-speed, fully synchronized manual transmission are both original to the car per the factory Kardex, a Read More

1944 Chrysler M4A4 Sherman Tank

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

Death Waits for No One

The email arrived on July 1, 2016. It was from my oldest and dearest friend, Bjarne Holm:

Hi Keith. Bad news on the health front. I was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer early last month. My prognosis is a few months to a few years, depending on how I respond to treatment. … I’m trying to make the best of it, and the response to treatment so far is pretty good. Fortunately I have Robin, who is doing a fantastic job Read More

1979 Ferrari 308 GT4

1979-ferrari-308-gt4-drivers-front

Ferrari’s line of highly successful V8-engined road cars began with the 308 GT4 of 1973. Badged as a Dino, the all-new 308 GT4 2+2 superseded the preceding Dino V6. The newcomer’s wedge-shaped styling — by Bertone rather than the customary Pininfarina — was modern and up to date; absent were complaints about the performance of the 3.0-liter quad-cam V8 engine, which was then carried over to its successor.

The angularly styled GT4 was remarkable in its ability to hold the Read More

Dude, Where’s My Car?

When you pull up to a restaurant or hotel and valet-park your car, it is reasonable to expect to get that car back in the same condition as when you dropped it off.

Unfortunately for Mr. Carlo DiMarco, that is not always the case.

According to a case filed in the District Court of Harris County, TX, Mr. DiMarco valet parked his 2014 Porsche Panamera at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel & Suites in Houston, TX.

The hotel charged him Read More

Immediately recognizable as not only an Aston Martin, but one with Zagato coachwork, the V12 Zagato is clothed in lightweight hand-rolled aluminum and carbon-fiber body panels.

Underneath the gorgeous coachwork was Aston Martin’s highest-specification Vantage drivetrain to date: the company’s competition-proven 5,935-cc 4-cam V12 engine that produced 510 bhp, mated to a 6-speed manual transaxle. With its massive acceleration to a top speed of 190 mph, the Aston’s performance was put to the test at the 2011 Nürburgring 24 Hours, Read More

Why You Buy an Underlig

affordable-classic-front

“Underlig” is a Swedish word that means curious, odd, peculiar or strange. Any of those terms could fairly be applied to the venerable Saab 96 and its kindred. No matter how you look at it, these little cars are funky. They’re not as odd as the Messerschmitts and Isettas of the world, but they’re strange enough that Saabs have never really caught on as collector cars — even though they’re highly regarded among rally competitors for their sure-footed handling and Read More
