Three Cars Calling to Me

When I start fidgeting around wondering which car I should get next, my friends call it “car knitting.”

Currently, I’ve got a tidy, tightly focused collection of Alfas, ranging from a 1958 Giulietta Sprint Veloce to a 1967 Duetto. All the cars are in fine fettle or approaching it.

The cars that have been calling out to me are an Alfa Junior Zagato, an Austin-Healey BT7 and a Porsche 356B coupe.

Here are the pluses and minuses of each:

It’s Open Season on Over-Posters

Have a fast car? Like to show your friends how fast it goes by posting speedometer selfies on Facebook and other social media sites?

You could be in for a rude knock from the Man with a Badge who just wants to ask you a few routine questions — or even worse, a process server looking to Hoover your wallet dry.

“Have I said too much?” Yup. That’s what over-posting looks like — when you share incriminating information online that Read More

Durable, Good-Looking and Cheap

If you have a hankering for an older Multi-Purpose Vehicle (old enough to predate the whole soccer-mom SUV thing), but feel that you missed the boat on first-generation Ford Broncos or 1969–72 Chevy Blazers, I have good news for you.

There’s one out there made in large enough quantities that availability is good, parts support is excellent, and it is still priced at chump change: the 1980–96 full-size Ford Bronco.

The genesis of the Bronco line, the first generation built Read More

1972 Lancia Fulvia 1.3S Zagato

Lancia commissioned Zagato to produce a more aerodynamic and sportier version of the Fulvia that also could be used in hillclimbs and track events. This model, designed by Ercole Spada, was technically advanced with its narrow-angle V4 tilted to lower the center of gravity. With 4,000 units produced, it is one of Zagato´s biggest successes.

The car on offer is a Series 2, which was fitted with a steel body and an upgraded 5-speed gearbox instead of the first series’ Read More

1983 Ferrari 512 BBi

Following the lead of the 365 GT/4 BB and the 512 BB before it, Ferrari’s 512 BBi is considered to be the most livable of the Berlinetta Boxer family of Ferraris. The 512 BBi was introduced at the 1981 Frankfurt Salon with only minor cosmetic and mechanical changes made to the existing 512 BB form, namely exposed driving lights at the front and the addition of rectangular parking lights next to the exhausts at the rear. The major change was Read More

1997 Audi A4 Quattro Super Touring

In the late 1990s, manufacturer-backed teams would come to dominate touring-car series around the world. One of the most pre-eminent was Audi, which spared no expense in its pursuit of the top of the podium. Using its base A4 Quattro as a platform, Audi developed the car significantly and turned it into a race winner.

In addition, Audi sought the best drivers from around the world in order to do their creation justice.

Technically, the Audi A4 Quattro Super Touring Read More
