Newport, Rhode Island is synonymous with history, luxury and sport.
It is home to the first U.S. Tennis Championship, the first international polo match and has been a central part of the America’s Cup. Nothing is more luxurious than the sprawling mansions — referred to as “cottages’ by their initial owners — that line select streets.
This professionally restored, two-owner 1953 Buick Skylark is powered by its matching-numbers Nailhead 322-ci V8 engine and Twin Turbine Dynaflow 2-speed automatic transmission.
It is the sixth of 1,690 Skylarks produced in 1953.
The restoration was completed in 2012 and the car has been fastidiously cared for since. It is finished in its original Matador Red color with a white power convertible top. The interior is finished in two-tone burgundy and white.
This Skylark features a Continental kit, power steering Read More
Described as “The Most Turbulent Tale in Automotive History,” the Ruxton story of America’s first front-drive automobile is a saga worthy of a big-screen production.
The car was launched at the onset of the Great Depression. Author Jeffrey Godshall described the Ruxton as “a brilliant machine that never had a chance.”

Steve McQueen, at one time the world’s highest-paid actor, a racing driver, motorcycle enthusiast and pop-culture icon, needs little introduction here or anywhere else. McQueen acquired, drove and raced dozens of fabulous cars.
McQueen purchased this Hudson Hornet 7C sedan in the mid-1970s, and it was registered in his name in August 1977. This Twin H-Power Hudson was in his possession and ownership at the time of his passing on November 7, 1980.
Many of the finest bespoke creations on Stutz chassis were produced at the Rollston Company of New York City, who, for three decades, was Manhattan’s most prestigious coachbuilder.
Rollston produced an astonishingly diverse portfolio of work, encompassing everything from fleet roadsters to massive town cars, which were all distinguished by exceptional build quality and were priced accordingly.
The Convertible Victoria design was originally developed in Europe in the early 1920s and subsequently popularized in the United States at Waterhouse.

By 1906 there were a number of struggles between entrepreneur Henry Ford and his board — the sort that are so frequent with “start-ups” and particularly in the early days of the motorcar industry.
The battle raged between directors Malcomson and Gray, who were for building a car to satisfy their perception of a growing luxury market, countered by Ford with his own vision for his business.
The Model K in concept mirrored and/or pre-empted the era of Six-Cylinderism, as Read More
