I’m a planner. There’s always a chance that my clutch leg won’t be fully operational time for the 2020 SCM 1000.
I plan on driving the route, so I’ve been musing about affordable, 1974-and-earlier two-pedal options.
If I had an unreasonable budget, my first two choices would be either an Iso Lele or a Maserati Ghibli coupe. Both have engines powerful enough to mask the power-and-joy-robbing characteristics of the 3-speed automatics from that era.

Blue Oval Classics have always been popular, and certain models have always brought a lot of money at auction — special cars like the 1969-70 Boss 429, 2005-06 Ford GT and 1965 Shelby GT350 have always been hot.

It’s a sunny Saturday morning and, from behind the wheel of my 1971 MGB Mk II, the storefronts of Detroit’s M-1 Woodward Avenue peel past my periphery.
With my head cocked back and a big grin on my face, I am fully engaged in the buttery smoothness of the roadster’s boisterous four-cylinder, the enthrallingly tight and click-y gearbox shifter, and copious amounts of wind in my hair.
Although I am reveling in my momentary motoring splendor, such moments are few Read More
