Porsche 991 GT3 RS at Cars and Caffe

Porsche 991 GT3 RS at Cars and Caffe

Every time I see one of these 991 GT3 RSs in person I just can’t get over how badass they are. It really is like a racecar you can drive to work.

Some say self-driven cars will be extinct in 10 years. They must all be test tube babies…

If everyone is really turning their backs on the automobile, then why does Singer exist? I mean, there’s a very long waiting waiting list of very wealthy people excited to spend many hundreds of thousands of dollars on a car they apparently don’t want. No, it’s clearly a chore for them when they’d all rather be carted around in autonomous electric cars, because that’s the future. I mean why would anybody want a tiny loud car that actually requires effort to drive? And with 500hp in such a featherweight package, isn’t it terribly unsafe? Why would people be lining up to get their hands on something like that in 2018?

1912 Mercedes-Benz Grand Prix Special at Radnor Hunt

1912 Mercedes Grand Prix 1 1912 Mercedes Grand Prix 2

This is one of those insane racecars from the dawn of the automotive era. It’s got a 9.5L inline 4 from a period fighter plane stuffed under its hood, and not much extra car around it. This is a racer from an era when the drivers had some serious stones because the speeds were very real and the safety measures were nonexistent.

1999 Rolls Royce Silver Spur IV at Scarsdale

Rolls Royce Spur IV Front

Rolls-Royce held on to its ideals hard and fast in the end of the Nineties. BMW was finishing up the Silver Seraph, and the Spur and its ilk were fast on their way out. However, here in America, the new Seraph, with its newfangled V12 engine and swoopy styling, god a tepid reception. Rolls Royce luckily had some Spur parts left, and cobbled up the final series of the Silver Spur, known as the Series V. Very few were made, and very few are left. In fact, this white Silver Spur IV is one of a scant 70 made in 1999, the final model year of the Spur. While it’s certainly not the finest car they ever made, or the most elegant, or the fastest, this is the end of an era for Rolls–the last car they ever built with the traditional 6.75L V8, and one of a select few sold with the twin turbo setup. It’s cool, calm, collected, and definitely my sort of car. Enjoy the photos. Continue reading 1999 Rolls Royce Silver Spur IV at Scarsdale

It’s been a while since we featured something antique and swoopy. This is one of the early Lincoln V12s, and it wears a unique and beautiful body. It was one of the stars of the Radnor Hunt Concours this year.

Enjoy the gallery!

Classic Mopars at the AACA Fall Meet, Hershey, PA

1971 Dodge Demon 340

I regret that I showed up late for this event. In fact, I showed up so late that I managed to miss most of the show. While I ate plenty of crow for that, I got to see most of the show leave along the exit road, and learned that at the AACA meet, always expect the unexpected. Among these Mopars featured today include the usual suspects, such as Superbirds and a Hemi car or two. However, take a good look at that 1942 DeSoto–one of the rarest years of the brand and a car almost never seen even by keen-eyed enthusiasts. My personal favorite? Take a good look at the cover photo. I have not seen many two-door late C-Body New Yorker coupes, and a black over tan example caught my eye and never gave it back. Enjoy the photos of these classic Chrysler products, and byproducts. Continue reading Classic Mopars at the AACA Fall Meet, Hershey, PA
