1961 Ferrari 250 GT SWB Berlinetta

Ferrari’s 250 GT reached a level of true dual-purpose perfection with the Short Wheelbase Berlinetta. It coalesced three parallel and mutually supporting paths of Ferrari development. Ferrari’s continuing focus upon both Grand Prix and endurance sports car racing emphasized power and reliability. Production of high quality gran tursimo automobiles delivered comfort and exclusivity to demanding clientele. And Pininfarina had refined a distinctive Ferrari design that visually captured and expressed the marque’s attributes.

Complementing the 250 GT SWB’s landmark design were Read More

1967 Chevrolet Corvette L71

Corvettes are among the most well-documented collector cars on the planet, so there’s no excuse for not knowing exactly what you’re buying

Long considered a modern classic, the Sting Ray’s aggressive lines and sleek profile were perfectly suited to its role as GM’s image leader. In the late 1960s, the big block Corvette was the king of the road. Although expensive, with a sticker price of over $5,000 as equipped here, the Read More

1980 Ferrari 512 BB/LM

The only concern of the Porsche drivers was that they stay well clear of the 512s. The handling of the three overweight Ferraris was as diabolical as anything that had ever emerged from Maranello

Ferrari’s opposed 12-cylinder Formula One technology worked its way into the production lineup in 1971 with the introduction of the 365 Berlinetta Boxer. A super high performance mid-engined berlinetta for Ferrari’s most performance-oriented clients, production of the 365 Read More

1954 Arnolt Bristol DeLuxe Roadster

There sat my never-forgotten love from Paris, among common British machinery like Morris Minors and MG Magnettes

The Arnolt Bristol was the obsession of engineer, industrialist, importer, and sports car enthusiast Stanley “Wacky” Arnolt. He made his fortune building marine engines during World War II, and, seeing a market for sports cars in America during the early 1950s, cut a deal with Bristol to use an updated version of its 400 chassis, Read More

1967 Volvo 123GT

Owning a true GT car from the ’60s is something everyone should
experience, if not for the image or the feel then just for the fun

When you think of collectible sports and GT cars from the 1960s, a number of British, German, Italian and even French marques may come to mind. But a Swedish Volvo? Sure, we remember the P1800 sports car, yet Volvo made a rally car suitable for Read More

1988 Porsche 911 Turbo Cabriolet

A Turbo Cabriolet is almost a poseur among hard-core Porsche folk, a car to be seen in rather than a car to drive fast in

In series production from 1975, the 911 Turbo married a KKK turbocharger to the 3.0-liter engine, a combination that delivered a stunning 260 hp and a top speed of 153 mph in road trim. The Turbo’s characteristic flared wheel arches and “tea tray” rear spoiler, introduced on Read More

1962 Ferrari 250GT PF Cabriolet Series II

The 250 engine paved the way for a large family of cars that helped Ferrari expand their limited output into series-produced sports cars. The new range was based on the 3-liter V12 engine designed by Gioacchino Colombo. The engine was powerful, smooth and adaptable to both touring and racing. The trend continued with the arrival of the Cabriolet 250 GT PF in 1957 — the last two letters standing for Pinin Farina (then still written as two words), who Read More

1978 Maserati Khamsin

Khamsins don’t appear at auction frequently. With less than 300 said to remain out of production of only around 430 cars, it is a legitimately rare bird, though its taste is still too gamey for most collectors

This elegant 2+2 coupe was first shown at Turin in 1972, the work of one of Bertone’s more talented young designers, Marcello Gandini. The Khamsin was to be Maserati’s answer to the Ferrari Daytona, yet Read More

1932 Ford Ricky Nelson roadster

This is the real thing, in a sea of fiberglass-bodied imitators with their ubiquitous 350 Chevy V8s and TH400 transmissions

{vsig}2004-2_1258{/vsig}

If this channeled ’32 roadster looks familiar to nostalgia-prone baby boomers, it is because it’s the same car that David and Ricky Nelson drove in a memorable episode of the Ozzie and Harriet television series. Legend has it, young Ricky desperately wanted to buy the car with some of his Read More

1981 Lola T600

This sucker is one big, low car with ground clearance that would scare a cockroach

Lola constructed just 12 examples of the T600. Chassis T600-HU3 was completed on March 28, 1981, the only example built with a four-cam Cosworth/Ford engine, and the only one retained by Lola Cars, Ltd., as a factory “works” car.

It was entered throughout the 1981 FIA Championship season, campaigned for Lola by Grid Racing and Read More
