1980 Ferrari 512 BB/LM

The only concern of the Porsche drivers was that they stay well clear of the 512s.

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.

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.

1988 Porsche 911 Turbo Cabriolet

With America’s […]

1962 Citroën 2CV Sahara 4×4 Sedan

Two engines at different ends of the car, two carburetors, two gearboxes, two ignition keys: It’s a miserable thing to drive. I should know, as I owned one and commuted in it daily for six years   The slab-sided, roll-top Citroën “Deux-Chevaux” was conceived as a people’s car, a front-wheel […]

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 […]
