1958 Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa Scaglietti Spyder at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance

1958 Ferrari Testa Rossa Front Angle

When it comes to the low and lithe 250 Testa Rossa, few other Ferraris have the same combination of sex appeal, speed, and freakish good looks. Paint one yellow and red, and a Concours judge will pay attention for quite a while. It got my attention too, considering I had to fight people tooth and nail just to get a few good snaps of this one. Pebble Beach was happy to feature the 250 Testa Rossa this past year and dedicated the end of the 17th fairway to a fleet of them for all to see and adore. This yellow and red example owned by Harry Yeaggy and Willis Murphy, Jr won 2nd in class and had ownership of an incredible history–this was a customer car, raced for an extensive period of time. It lost its engine and had to race with a Chevy V8, but 19 years ago was reunited with its original engine, which is now back in the car for the first time since this Testa Rossa was delivered in 1958. “Stunning” isn’t the right word. “Terrific” better covers it. Enjoy the photos. Read the rest of this entry »

1973 Volkswagen Beetle #69 Spotted in Carmel, CA

Volkswagen Beetle Front

When it comes to the VW Beetle, I’m not the biggest fan in the world, but I tolerate them. Of course, one that’s been modified in some amusing way will keep my attention for a good amount longer. This little white Beetle had some turquoise tape stripes (clearly made of tape), cool Minilite-style wheels, and some writing on the back window. It’s nowhere near the caliber of any other car that I saw running around Carmel that evening, but this unique little Beetle (which has a “turbo” and “1000 Horsepower” according to the written notes on the back end) has a draw and a charm all its own.

1993 Ferrari F40 LM at Bonhams Auction

Ferrari F40 LM at Bonhams Auction in Monterey

We toured the Bonhams auction at the Quail Lodge during Monterey Car Week, and we found this monstrous Ferrari F40 LM sitting in all of its red glory. One of just 19 F40 LMs produced, this example was basically untouched with delivery miles and no track use to date. I’m not sure if that is a good thing or a bad thing, but someone wound up forking out $2.2 million for it.

The Ferrari F40 is an all-time favorite among most car enthusiasts, and getting to see a rare LM up close is always spectacular. Enjoy the photos!

How does the new Ford Mustang stand up against the Chevy Camaro?

It’s an age-old American civil war that continues to be fought on the asphalt. Mustang vs Camaro, who will win?

1980 Ford Mustang GT Enduro at the 2014 Radnor Hunt Concours

IMSA Mustang Front Angle

When it comes to Fox Body Mustangs, most people think of the notchback Mustangs from the later era, along with stripped-out hatchbacks packing huge V8s (often with superchargers added in) screaming down the drag strip. They’re interesting cars for the era and are slowly becoming more appreciated in the Mustang community for plenty of reasons. However, this is no ordinary Fox. This Fox has been drinking steroids through an IV bag. Thanks to the McLaren body and success Ford had in racing the Mustang in the IMSA-GTO endurance class in the early Eighties, three street display cars resulted to advertise the new 5.0L V8 engine and a new set of Firestone tires. This is the second of just three built, and the only one remaining at this time. Although it’s not a normal car to see at a Concours event, it looked quite fitting on the bottom row of cars at Radnor last month, especially against the crystal-blue sky. Enjoy the photos.

Ferrari 612 Scaglietti spotted in Carmel, CA

Ferrari 612 Scaglietti with rims

We saw this blacked-out Ferrari 612 Scaglietti looking seriously sinister in Carmel, California during the festivities of Monterey Car Week. Ferrari GT cars are always classy, but those wheels made this one look especially sharp. Enjoy!
