This is an extremely clean car. This car has been completely redone as a body on frame restoration 10 years ago (per the previous owner) and is the original color (re-sprayed).
If you are a loner or a real private kind of person this may not be the car for you. It’s a true head turner and people will make your quick trip to the grocery store quite a bit longer. Everyone admires this car for its beauty, it’s history and legend. OG’s will reminisce and tell you about the one they (or a friend). You’ll be tempted to open the hood to show off all the power breathing beneath. Go ahead and do it. Then, after you finally make your getaway you’ll just have to show off by hitting the gas and leaving them in that awesome sound of true MUSCLE!!! They’ll love you for it.

In the video-game world of make-believe, where you can perform extreme driving exploits in pretty much whatever vehicle you choose, the car model most commonly found on virtual roads is… wait for it… the Volkswagen Beetle. The Volkswagen leads the list for the model that games makers most often place in their products, from Grand […]
At some point, this coronvirus impingement will end and we’ll want to be out and about, cruising the highways and byways with our convertible tops down. A dealership in Fort Wayne, Indiana, suggests the Pick of the Day, a 1966 Lincoln Continental convertible, would be an ideal choice for the open road. “This is a […]
Larry Edsall, founding editor of the ClassicCars.com Journal, and I enjoy a mutual passion not only for the written word, but for motor racing in its many incarnations. We have been around the sport for longer than either of us cares to admit – but we both got to experience a gilded age, Larry in […]
Before I ever wrote about cars, I wrote about sports, albeit including motorsports, and one of the first things a young sportswriter learns, at least back when I was learning, is “there’s no cheering in the press box.” Your press pass entitled you to the best seat in the stadium or arena or whatever playing […]
With seemingly all car events canceled, our editors have some time on their hands, which means we’re doing a lot of “bench racing” these days. The subject of favorite racing drivers came up. Since managing editor Tom Stahler and founding editor Larry Edsall each has a long history covering motorsports, we suggested each select his […]
Roland Sands not only races — he was the 1998 AMA 250GP national road racing champion — but is known for designing custom performance motorcycles and motorcycle parts. And now he and his Roland Sands Design firm was worked with Time Concepts to produce the Icon Signature Series: Roland Sands watches. The watches not only […]
And the winner is… This has been an interesting exercise. Such as most car-centric discussions, there was disagreement, many laughs, camaraderie and more disagreements. But here is where it got interesting: After so many votes from readers, at the deadline, the ZR-1 and Miata each got 50 percent of the vote. Yes. That is correct. […]
Don Yenko built a reputation for providing ground pounding conversions, ala Yenko Super Cars, where customers could purchase Yenko modified Chevys going back to 1966. Wait? In 1966 Chevrolet had not introduced the venerable Camaro to the public, so what did Yenko have from the factory stable he could modify to become his inaugural Chevy […]
Front-engine water pumpers for a very long time have been the red-headed stepchildren at Porsche. Coming of age at high school and college in the 80s, I saw the release of the “Shark” 928. Then there were the several incarnations of the 924, 944 and 968. Porsche may have alienated a few of the 911-or-nothing […]
It is now quite a few years ago that Porsche had its American headquarters in Reno, Nevada. With so many of its customers in nearby California, and from the perspective of corporate taxation, the move from New Jersey probably made sense. However, it didn’t take very long for German executives to tire of the even […]
