The Republican Party’s Christmas present to all of us was a new tax law. It made good on several promises, the most notable being President Trump’s promise to get it done before Christmas.

Ballyhooed as the most significant tax reform measure since 1986 — that it definitely is, although reasonable minds can differ about whether that is a good thing or not — it became law without a single Democrat voting for it.

There are many publications that explain the Read More

Fun With the Poor Man’s XKE

There aren’t many sleepers in the collector car world with the endearing qualities of the Triumph GT6. It’s a British child of the Swingin’ Sixties, it’s rarely seen, it’s a crowd-pleaser and it’s just a plain hoot to drive.

If you fit in it.

Produced for just seven years through Mark I, Mark II and Mark III variants, the GT6 combined the Giovanni Michelotti-designed Spitfire body in coupe form with a sweet little 2-liter six-banger. Looking something like an E-type Read More

1952 Jaguar C-Type

This stunning C-type is just the seventh example of 53 cars in the chassis number sequence, and it wears the ninth body constructed. Chassis number XKC007 also claims important SCCA racing history in the hands of the legendary Phil Hill.

The Jaguar debuted as number 41 at Elkhart Lake in early September of 1952. As his son Derek recalls, Phil Hill actually drove the Jaguar himself from California to Wisconsin for the race. There, Hill won the Sheldon Cup race Read More

1959 Ferrari 250 GT LWB California Spyder Competizione

The late 1950s and early 1960s was the golden era of sports car racing. Every weekend, privateers and manufacturers alike would take to racetracks around the world, racing everything from home-built specials to the latest and greatest in handcrafted, exotic Italian sports cars.

One of the major players in the sports car racing scene in the United States was Luigi Chinetti. Chinetti was a highly successful racing driver — having won the 24 Hours of Le Mans outright in 1932, Read More

1974 DeTomaso Pantera L

Ford Motor Company president Lee Iacocca was a man who fostered bold new ideas and had the clout to turn them into reality. Among his wildest notions was that of a mid-engine supercar that could be sold by a Ford dealer, cooked into being with his great friend and former Argentinean racing driver Alejandro DeTomaso, in a storied collaboration with noted sports car designer Tom Tjaarda on behalf of respected Italian coachbuilder Ghia.

The resulting DeTomaso Pantera was built in Read More

When Will It Be Time to Sell?

There’s been a lot of talk recently about Baby-Boomer collectors “thinning their collections” and “right-sizing them.”

Whether you have six cars, 60 or 600 — the dilemma is the same. Over the decades you’ve been collecting, as you’ve found the specific model you’ve been looking for, you acquire it — often paying above market — and tuck it away.

However, now, as you look over your garage, you realize that you can’t possibly drive them all. Further, the longer they Read More
