1970 Volvo 122S Amazon Group 2 Rally

Introduced in 1956, the Volvo 120 Series lasted in production until 1970, by which time around half a million had been built. Its build quality, toughness and longevity helped to establish the Swedish company’s reputation worldwide. Marketed in Sweden as the Amazon, this model was the first car to feature modern seat belts as standard equipment — a safety revolution at the time.

This particular Amazon shakes off all those staid characteristics to go rallying. Built on Read More

1964 Aston Martin DB5

Introduced in July 1963, the Aston Martin DB5 boasted a 4-liter engine, this enlarged unit having been seen first in the Lagonda Rapide of 1961. Equipped with three SU carburetors, the 400 engine produced 282 bhp at 5,500 rpm and was mated to a 4-speed/overdrive gearbox, a ZF 5-speed unit being standardized later.

The DB5’s distinctive cowled headlamps had first appeared on the DB4GT, and the newcomer was the same size as the lengthened, Series V DB4.

1941 Packard One-Eighty Convertible Victoria by Darrin

The Packard Darrin was a special automobile in the maker’s lineup. It was a blending of all the glory that was Packard in the Classic Era and the stunning design work of Howard “Dutch” Darrin. The result was one of the more glamorous cars of the 1940s.

According to its body tag, this Darrin was first delivered to Mead Motor Co. in Houston, TX, on June 27, 1941. It has since been restored by Stone Barn Restoration from what is Read More

Shedding Its Former Life

Necessity being the mother of invention, and Brits being a nation of inveterate tinkerers, gave us “Men in Sheds” — a breed whose inventor/engineer mentality has won fame for fashioning functional devices out of parts that have no business near each other.

Thus, it was natural that redundant cars would become recycled or repurposed during and after World War II.

In the same way that Britain “dug for victory” in wartime, turning over domestic gardens to vegetable plots to provide Read More

1961 Aston Martin DP214 Replica Competition Coupe

The four Aston Martin Development Project cars were the final racing iteration of the DB4 and Aston Martin’s last pure racers of the David Brown era. In 1962, DP212 appeared at Le Mans and led easily with Graham Hill at the wheel before engine trouble put the car out. In 1963, the final three DP cars appeared: two DP214s with DB4GT chassis numbers, and DP215, which ran as a prototype. There are three replica DP214s in existence. The third is Read More

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.

Like most sophisticated chassis Read More
