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 […]

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 […]
The coronavirus pandemic is having a major impact on automotive events, many of which are being canceled or postponed.
