1990 Ferrari 348 ts

Brought to life in Bianco (white) with a very sexy and sinister Rosso (red) leather interior. Never in an accident, always garage kept and well maintained. Part of a 50-car collection of Ferrari classic cars. All of the electrical items work, including windows, stereo, lights and turn signals. Everything on the car is factory-original, with an added carbon-fiber wrap for the roof.

1953 Fiat 8V Supersonic by Ghia

Fiat’s most legendary, significant, and storied production model, the 8V, was aptly described in Road & Track in 1952 as “the biggest surprise of the year.” It came as a shock to the automotive world when Fiat suddenly introduced a powerful sports car with an advanced overhead-valve, light-alloy V8 engine, Siata-fabricated chassis and four-wheel independent suspension, which could be — and was — successfully raced by privateers all over the world.

1957 Jaguar Mk 1 3.4-Litre Saloon

This car came equipped with the optional overdrive, disc brakes, wire wheels and lead-bronze bottom-end bearing shells.

Completed on September 26, 1957, the Jaguar was registered FWB 1, and in January 1958 set off for France on the Monte Carlo Rally carrying competitor number 253.

Owner Frank Brown’s co-drivers were Edwin J. Snusher and Graham Arnold. The trio did not finish the rally, but Brown continued to compete with the Jaguar in hillclimbs and sprints throughout 1959 and then sold Read More

1957 Chevrolet Bel Air Nomad

The first Chevrolet Nomad was conceived by Harley Earl and based on a Corvette platform. It debuted at the 1954 GM Motorama show. After a warm public reception, the Nomad was placed into production for 1955 and joined the top-echelon Chevrolet Bel Air passenger car line to become the first GM 2-door station wagon. The original Nomad continued as a low-production (by Chevrolet standards) image leader for the 1956 and 1957 model years.

Proudly offered here from the Monical Collection Read More

2008 Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione

In late 2003, Alfa Romeo was preparing a return to the North American market, and it needed a flagship car to remind buyers of the Italian automaker’s glorious past. That September at the Frankfurt Auto Show, the world was shown the dramatic re-emergence of Alfa Romeo as one of the great automotive sporting marques with the reveal of the 8C Competizione concept car.

Little had changed on the stunning 8C Competizione when it was approved for a limited production run Read More

A Father’s Day Note

The 1960 Bugeye I bought for my 10-year-old son Bradley 18 months ago is finally home in the SCM garage.

When I bought this Bugeye, I accomplished two goals with one car.

First, I was paying a tribute to my own beginnings in sports cars. My first car was a Bugeye — purchased the day I turned 16 and got my license.

Although the car was only seven years old, it was thoroughly decrepit and barely worth the $30 I Read More

Is There a Ferrari Odometer Rollback Hack?

So how does a seemingly innocuous firing of a car salesperson turn into a public-relations disaster for Ferrari? Easy — all sorts of unexpected consequences can arise when a Legal File is created.

(Note: No one contacted by “Legal Files” was willing to speak on the record. Consequently, we drew heavily on court filings — mostly Bud Root’s at this stage — for the story.)

Bud Root has spent 22 years happily and successfully selling Ferraris. He started at Shelton Read More

Better — and Uglier — Than the Original

Pity the second-generation Mazda RX-7. The FC, as it’s known to rotary cognoscenti, has always trailed its older brothers in desirability — if not in performance. And while that’s not strictly fair, it has kept prices attractively low on a car that has a lot of enjoyment potential.

Mazda brought out the first RX-7 in 1978, and it was a dramatic departure from their admirable line of rotary-engine coupes and sedans of the 1970s. But the RX-7 was also a Read More

1959 Devin D Porsche Special

The brainchild of Bill Devin, an SCCA National Champion from California, Devin Enterprises created a number of kit cars in the 1950s and 1960s. Lightweight, affordable and easy to construct, Devin’s fiberglass sports car quickly earned him a stellar reputation, and Devins could be found competing on racetracks across America.

The Devin D could be purchased as a kit to be assembled by the customer or as a completed car for racing or street use. Boasting a tubular frame, the Read More
