Featured Listing – 1959 Porsche 356A Cabriolet

Update, November 17, 2014: The 356A Cabriolet has been sold. Hope you enjoy it! Collectors are obsessive about the first and the last of any generational piece, and nowhere is this practice more prevalent than in the vintage car world. With any evolutionary piece, the creators and manufacturers worked out weaknesses over time, sometimes at the expense of the diluting the original recipe, purists will have you believe. In the case of Porsche’s … [Read more...]

Featured Listing – 1953 Porsche 356 Pre-A Coupe

The 1950s have rightly been called the golden age for the automobile on both sides of the Atlantic, a renaissance of styling and engineering after the years of warfare that diverted the talents of the car industry to military efforts. This was even true in Germany, a war-torn and geopolitically divided country that began a miraculously quick recovery in the postwar years, and it was out of this climate that Porsche came into its own as one of the … [Read more...]

West Coast Warrior – 1954 Ferrari 375 MM

The 375 MM effectively combined the race-proven chassis from the 340 with the 4.5-liter 340 horsepower V-12 from Ferrari's ill-fated Indianapolis car. Most examples had either spider or berlinetta bodywork by Pinin Farina, and they were used to great success on both sides of the Atlantic, even helping to secure enough points in international competition for Ferrari to win the Manufacturer's Championship in 1953 and 1954. Only around sixteen … [Read more...]

Thoughtfully Preserved – 1961 Ferrari 250 GT Series II Cabriolet

A 250 Ferrari of any kind is hard not to love.

The 250 GT Cabriolet is no exception. Although it was more comfortable and less explicitly sporty than some of its siblings, the Cabriolet nevertheless shared the intoxicating wail of the … [Read more...]

Unrestored, Unused, Unsoiled – 1967 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe

It is both baffling and somewhat reassuring that many fantastic classic cars were bought new for not insignificant sums of money and then used so sparingly, a few miles at a time, that years later they are almost completely unspoiled. This car is a particularly extreme example of that strange habit. In 1966, a 30 year old US Marine went to Vegas, won $5,000 in a slot machine, and bought his dream car. It was a 1967 Corvette Coupe finished in … [Read more...]
