    It’s amazing how quickly Miura prices have skyrocketed. They are as beautiful as they come in my book, so I get it and then some. And to some extent, the same can be said of early E-Types…

    Have we all forgotten the Classic crash of the late 80′s?Great cars seem to have been immune from the financial sunami that surrounds us all, but for how long can this continue?But these cars are to die for!
