Underground E30

Underground E30
In this short film by Max Daines, we get to spend a couple of quality minutes admiring two E30-series BMW coupes. These cars have become some of the most desirable BMWs out there, thanks to their iconic styling, moderate price, and fun-filled handling, which makes them a perfect canvas for the tuner and aftermarket scene.

Awesome Car Pic: Morgan 3-Wheeler Battle

Awesome Car Pic: Morgan 3-Wheeler Battle
This great image shows two classic Morgan 3-Wheelers going neck-and-neck through a corner. It looks to me like the guy on the inside has his up on two wheels — which for a Morgan means he’s still got 2/3 of his wheels on the ground; so he should be good.

DeLorean DMC-12: Blast from the Past

The guys at XCAR Films recently spent some quality time with an unmodified original DMC-12, and share a brief history of this never-to-be-repeated car.

1972 Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona Pops up on eBay

1972 Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona Pops up on eBay
The Ferrari 365 GTB/4 is of my favorite Ferraris of all time. Known by most by the moniker “Daytona,” just 1,284 of these classic Ferraris were made from 1968 to 1973. Powered by a 4.4-liter, 352 horsepower V12 engine, the front-engined, rear-wheel drive gran tourer could go from 0-to-60mph in just 5.4 seconds, with a top speed of 174mph – both impressive figures for its era.

Awesome Car Pic: Datsun 240Z
The Datsun 240Z is one of the great, fun sports cars of the early 1970s. These cars are highly collectible today and still great fun to drive. The styling of the car, to me, looks as good as just about any Italian or German car of the day.

Nigel Mansell’s Ferrari F40 Fetches Nearly $900k
We previously featured a Ferrari F40 that was owned by Rod Stewart, but frankly I’d much rather have this one, owned by champion Formula 1 race car driver Nigel Mansell. This beautiful Rosso Corsa 1989 F40 Berlinetta was gifted to Mansell by Ferrari when he joined their F1 team.

Awesome Car Pic: Ferrari Dino 246 GTS
In my mind, Italian sports cars simply do not get any more beautiful than a Ferrari from the late 1960s or 1970s. The Dino 246 was built by Ferrari beginning in the late 1960s, and the open-top Dino 246 GTS, while not as rare as the Dino 206, has a classic design that holds up today without question.

Awesome Car Pic: Ginetta G4 Gulf
This Ginetta G4 would look pretty awesome in any color, but wrapped in the classic Gulf Racing livery, it’s truly spectacular. The G4 was originally produced as a kit car back in 1961, and basically was a fiberglass body and custom chassis mated with a Ford drivetrain, powered by the engine of the funky Ford Anglia 105E.

Jay Leno Takes the First Meyers Manx for a Spin

Jay Leno Takes the First Meyers Manx for a Spin
As we already know, the Meyers Manx is a classic as dune buggies go. Bruce Meyers’ rudimentary fiberglass 2-seater is regarded among most as the car that defined the entire dune buggy industry. Amazingly, the very first 1964 Meyers Manx is still in great shape, and Jay Leno managed to spend some quality time with the 88-year-old Meyers for a ride in the classic buggy.

Dwight D. Eisenhower’s 1943 Willys Jeep Hits eBay
If you’re a World War II buff and you like khaki green, this 1943 Jeep Willys may be the perfect car to add to your collection. The Jeep was presented to General Eisenhower after the end of WWII by the people of Scotland for use by him while he was visiting Culzean Castle on Scotland’s west coast, which was also given to him as a gift to recognize the support he gave the Scots during the war.
