The Pick of the Day is a tastefully customized vintage convertible said to drive like a modern car
With Monterey Car Week around the corner, I can’t help but daydream about the wonderful drive along the Pacific Coast Highway.
The four-door luxury convertible is pretty much an extinct configuration, gone by way of 1960s Lincoln Continentals, unless you count a couple of recent concept cars.
From the Tammy Allen collection and set to cross the block without reserve during the Barrett-Jackson Las Vegas option is this 1940 Ford Deluxe custom sedan.
After World War II, some car dealers distributed their limited inventory on a lottery basis.
With all the attention given to so-called barn finds, how great is it to discover an all-original, preserved classic that’s old enough to apply for Medicare
It took almost 50 years and a build team of nine, but I once again am the proud owner of a 1940 Ford Deluxe coupe.
Classic car week begins today in Arizona and, as always, the six auctions taking place in the Scottsdale/Phoenix area through January 18 will tout their offerings in hyperbolic terms.
