1995 Ferrari F50

Every tifosi has dreamt of piloting a Formula One car on the open road. No traffic. No stop lights. No speed cameras. Just the sound of the car’s exhaust note reverberating off buildings — let alone the feeling of sheer speed — would be enough to redline the heartbeats of car enthusiasts anywhere.

In essence, the Ferrari F50 was just that: an F1 car at heart, but it was designed and built to drive on the road.

At its heart Read More

1961 Jaguar E-Type Series I

This extremely early, very desirable, and hard-to-find external-bonnet-latch, flat-floor E-type roadster was ordered new at the 1961 Paris Salon by Maclean’s magazine Editor Ralph Allen.

The Opalescent Bronze roadster was dispatched from the factory on June 9, 1961, and exported to Canada. Chassis 875053 is the 53rd E-type roadster constructed, and the 27th left-hand-drive example, making it one of the earliest E-types exported to North America.

The early Jaguar Registry also notes that chassis 875053 is the fourth-earliest car produced Read More

1938 Graham 97 Supercharged Cabriolet by Saoutchik

Like many advanced American designs of the late 1930s, “The Spirit of Motion” caught on much stronger in avant-garde Europe than in its home country. The finest European coachbuilders took Northrup’s aerodynamic lines as their muse, among them Jacques Saoutchik of Paris. Saoutchik installed custom cabriolet bodywork on several “Sharknose” chassis, of which the car shown here is believed to be one of two existing examples and the only one currently in the United States.

Chassis number 141747 was one Read More

A Wakeup Call for Smartphone Users

Finally, someone is doing something about it.

We’ve all seen the telltale signs. We look at the driver in the next lane and see one hand on the wheel, head down and making furtive occasional glances up and then back down.

At night, it’s even easier to spot, as the glow of the cell phone lights the driver’s face.

To those of us who appreciate and take pride in the skill required to properly drive cars capable of high performance, Read More

Join SCM’s Bonkers Miami-to-Monterey Drive

We’ve come up with the ultimate SCM road trip. We’re combining perhaps the most insignificant collector car with the longest possible trip. Here’s your chance to become a part of it.

We’ve acquired a 1974 Bradley GT. My 9-year-old son is named Bradley; how could I resist? Think how much more interesting my choices would have been if I had named him Enzo.

We’re asking SCMers to take turns driving it across the country. The GT is currently in Miami/Fort Read More

Britain’s Not-So-Affordable Range Rover

This is supposed to be the “Affordable Classic” strand, but Range Rovers aren’t very affordable — in their home country, at least.

They’ve always been expensive to buy and run, but interest in the early cars, especially those with Suffix A (pre-1972) chassis numbers, has been rising steadily over the past decade, perhaps stoked by its sister-under-the-skin Defender’s mortality.

That has pushed prices in Europe to £50k ($60k) plus, even £75k ($95k) Read More

1934 Alfa Romeo Tipo B P3

Chassis 50006 is the sixth example of the seven Alfa Romeo Tipo B P3 second-series wide-body cars, and it is one of three originally fitted with the Dubonnet suspension and reversed quarter-elliptical leaf springs (as opposed to being converted by the factory following initial manufacture).

Stamped with Scuderia Ferrari number 46, this car interchangeably participated in the campaigns of 1935 with the other Tipo B cars.

The factory and the Scuderia did not record individual chassis records, so it is Read More

1970 Mazda Cosmo 110S

Mazda Cosmos are more than a cool-looking novelty. The high-revving rotary engine, 4-speed transmission and lightweight body combine to produce a driver’s car that will make you smile. On offer is a fine, mostly original example of a very rare 110S Export model that comes from the large private collection of a Japanese Domestic Market enthusiast.

Although the number of previous owners is not known, the current owner, an avid JDM collector, purchased this 110S in 2014 from one of Read More
