The name Mickey Thompson has mythical status. It’s a name that inspired so many to go fast. His name remains on many speed goodies to this day. For many, the name also was shrouded in mystery when Thompson and his wife were gunned down in their San Gabriel, California driveway in 1988. A former business […]

It’s hard to believe this was nearly 50 years ago. The joy of YouTube is definitely in that one never realizes how many broadcast gems exist out there of which we only recently become aware. Videos like these remind me why I love racing – and why my perpetual passion began with races like this. […]
The 1960s were a great time for American cars, in many ways the last great era for classic US-made automobiles, especially in the luxury car segment. A highlight of that segment was the personal luxury car, designed for driving to work as easily as crossing the country in supreme comfort. Among the very best of […]
Just seven years after heavier-than-air flight was initially achieved, Charles Stewart Rolls made the first non-stop flight by airplane across the English Channel from Britain to France and back again. That historic flight took place 110 years ago, on June 2, 1910, a date that Rolls-Royce Motor Cars is commemorating as it marks 116 years […]
June 2, 1970, was a Tuesday. As usual, I arrived at the newspaper office around 5 a.m. to start working my way through the stack of paper filed overnight by the Associated Press sports wire teletypewriters. Ideally, I’d have that process finished, and also have a pretty good start on the design of that day’s […]
Modern steering wheels do more than control which direction a car goes. They’re festooned with buttons that drivers can use to make phone calls or change radio stations. But the first cars didn’t even have steering wheels. The 1886 Benz Patent Motorwagen – generally considered to be the first true automobile – instead used a tiller. […]
You’ve finally found the classic car of your dreams. That Falcon Futura, a Corvette Stingray, the exact Shelby Mustang your dad had when you were a kid. You’ve done the research; you knew exactly what to look for and examined the car with white gloves. You trailered it home, backed it into the garage, and […]
Like yours, my car has sat quite a bit over the past few months. Being shut in has not been much fun for anyone. While Arizona seems to be getting back to normal, I’m still not doing my daily commute to the ClassicCars.com offices and making the occasional trip to the grocery. However, a couple […]
