The 356 offered is one that Porsche enthusiasts dream of finding: a virtually complete and largely original, numbers-matching T-1 Speedster that has been stored in a dry Texas garage for more than 40 years.
This car was carefully covered up for some 40 years, until noted Barn Find author Tom Cotter recently discovered it in Texas. The 60-horsepower Type 616/1 1600 Normal engine and 4-speed, fully synchronized manual transmission are both original to the car per the factory Kardex, a Read More
The M4 is undoubtedly the most famous World War II Allied tank. It was the most-produced American tank during World War II, with close to 50,000 units (all versions included).
The British gave the tank its nickname, “Sherman,” when they got delivery of their first units through the Lend-Lease agreement. “Sherman” referenced the American Civil War Union General William Tecumseh Sherman. The U.S. Army quickly adopted this nickname.
This M4A4 Sherman tank recently joined the Normandy Tank Museum collection and Read More
Ferrari’s line of highly successful V8-engined road cars began with the 308 GT4 of 1973. Badged as a Dino, the all-new 308 GT4 2+2 superseded the preceding Dino V6. The newcomer’s wedge-shaped styling — by Bertone rather than the customary Pininfarina — was modern and up to date; absent were complaints about the performance of the 3.0-liter quad-cam V8 engine, which was then carried over to its successor.
The angularly styled GT4 was remarkable in its ability to hold the Read More
Immediately recognizable as not only an Aston Martin, but one with Zagato coachwork, the V12 Zagato is clothed in lightweight hand-rolled aluminum and carbon-fiber body panels.
Underneath the gorgeous coachwork was Aston Martin’s highest-specification Vantage drivetrain to date: the company’s competition-proven 5,935-cc 4-cam V12 engine that produced 510 bhp, mated to a 6-speed manual transaxle. With its massive acceleration to a top speed of 190 mph, the Aston’s performance was put to the test at the 2011 Nürburgring 24 Hours, Read More
One of Australia’s best success stories in terms of motorcar sales and racing, the tale of Bib Stillwell began with a humble garage in Kew, Australia, in 1949.
Early on, as agents for British sports cars MG and Jaguar as well as Morris, B.S. Stillwell & Co. established a fine reputation for excellence in client service. Alongside the day-to-day sales, Bib developed his own interest in motor racing, successfully campaigning a number of cars including the Jaguar XK 120 offered Read More

The company’s products found their way into the stables of enthusiasts the world over, and collectors favor them today. For comfort, performance and superb style, they are hard to beat.

“Underlig” is a Swedish word that means curious, odd, peculiar or strange. Any of those terms could fairly be applied to the venerable Saab 96 and its kindred. No matter how you look at it, these little cars are funky. They’re not as odd as the Messerschmitts and Isettas of the world, but they’re strange enough that Saabs have never really caught on as collector cars — even though they’re highly regarded among rally competitors for their sure-footed handling and Read More
In the fall of 1964, Chevrolet introduced the second-generation Corvair in direct competition with the Ford Mustang. While the Mustang seemed to take all the air out of the room for a small, sporty American car, independent thinkers in the know realized the two competing products couldn’t be more different.
The Mustang was great looking, to be sure. But underneath the shiny sheet metal were mundane Ford Falcon mechanicals. The perimeter frame, solid rear Read More
In 1930, as Detroit was in the middle of an escalating horsepower race, Packard unveiled the 734 Speedster — an understated high-performance model that is perhaps the finest sporting machine built by an American manufacturer during the Classic Era.
Despite its limited production, the 734 Speedster was offered in five distinct body styles: runabout, phaeton, Victoria, sedan and roadster.
Custom tailored to the dimensions of the high-performance chassis, the Speedster’s body was built in Packard’s Read More
