Radwood Philly: And the winner of the “1980s Theme Award” goes to…

IMG_7416

If you’ve seen Scarface, you’ll know Tony Montana buys a Porsche 928 to impress his boss, Frank’s, soon-to-be-single lady.

The owner of this gold 928 decided to go all out on the 80’s theme at Radwood and leave a few suspicious white lines on the center console of his car. (That must be baking powder… right?)

Highlights from Radwood Philadelphia 2018

IMG_7000

This was the first Radwood event on the east coast, and it was surely one of my favorite events of this year. Radwood is a car-based celebration of 1980s and 90s culture and the stuff that showed up was extremely interesting. I’ll let the highlights do the rest of the talking for now. There’s much more to come. Enjoy!

A cleanly modded BMW E46 M3 at he Scarsdale Concours

IMG_6669

I love the E46 M3 and I especially love it in Laguna Seca Blue. This one was very nicely modified and it really popped against the exotics and classics at the Scarsdale Concours.

Enjoy the photos!

Welcome to the E38–or, the best 7 Series ever produced.

When I was a kid, my friend’s dad gave me a lift home in his brand new 1999 BMW 740iL. I was blown away by how nice it was to just sit in even as a nine year old. Since then I’ve wanted a BMW 7-Series from this generation. Here, Doug Demuro walks us through the highest end version of the era–the 750iL V12 with the M Sport package. Enjoy the video.

Aston Martin V12 Zagato at the Scarsdale Concours

IMG_6737

There is always a unicorn or two that shows up for the Scarsdale Concours. This year it included this stunning Aston Martin V12 Zagato. 1 of just 150 to grace this earth of ours this car backs up its beauty with an enthusiast recipe for the ages… a screaming V12 engine with RWD dynamics, all controlled via a manual transmission. It’s damn close to perfection.

Enjoy!

Highlights from the Scarsdale Concours

IMG_6601

We love the Scarsdale Concours because it has a much more relaxed vibe than most other Concours events and while it’s not huge in size, the cars are always top notch. This year did not disappoint. We’ll let the gallery do the rest of the talking.

Enjoy!

Chrysler VH Valiant Charger at the 2018 Sunday In The Park at Lime Rock

IMG_5116

Say hello to the Thunder from Down Under. Most people, including me, had never heard of this car. Chrysler used to sell their own homegrown cars in Oz–and this is one of the most desirable. Here we find a 1972 VH Valiant Charger, with its very own, never-seen in America Hemi-head inline six. These were potent, rare, and valuble cars in their day, and are seldom seen now. That this one is in America is an even larger oddity as it looks to be similar in size to a Dart, but is shaped like a Cricket, and has the name of an intermediate. Enjoy the photos of this “shrimp on the barbie” mini muscle car. Continue reading Chrysler VH Valiant Charger at the 2018 Sunday In The Park at Lime Rock

Dodge Demon in Plum Crazy in Liberty State Park

IMG_5585

In modern muscle car terms, I consider this perfection. The mighty Dodge Demon wearing Plum Crazy Purple. It is magnificent!

I was thrilled to see this thing at the Driven By Purpose event in Liberty State Park. The Challenger just has that classic muscle car flavor at a level that the Mustang and Camaro don’t quite match. 50 years after the hay day of the American muscle car, Chrysler is still staying true to their recipe. I love it so much!

Enjoy the gallery.

Doug Demuro drives a 1977 Cadillac Eldorado-and shows why I love them.

If you’ve been following this site for a while, you may be aware of my unrepentant love for cars of the Disco Era and my strange obsession with the Seventies Cadillac Eldorado. Doug DeMuro, who has a reputation for also liking unusual cars, takes this 1977 model out for a drive and shows us what he thinks of it–but also shows us why this was such a popular luxury car of the era.

Gemballa Mirage GT at Cars and Caffe

IMG_6053

This is one of those unicorns you just don’t see. It’s a Gemballa Mirage GT, a heavily modified Porsche Carrera GT of which only 25 exist worldwide. This was my second time seeing this car, but the first time I was able to get any photos of it. It’s absolutely incredible.

Once the owner left I saw it fly by on the highway, 670hp V10 at full chat, and it sounded like a LeMans prototype. It’s awesome to see this car in a car show, but it was really unbelievable to see it screaming past normal traffic. It really made my day!

Enjoy the gallery!
