A Drive in the Country in a 1956 Maserati 150S
Take a drive in a historic 1956 Maserati 150S with the team at GridStars. Apparently, Maserati only made 27 of these beautiful open-top cars. This particular vehicle was once owned by the Beels Racing Team and was offered for action at the Gooding & Co.

Flashback: 1984 Chevy Corvette

Flashback: 1984 Chevy Corvette
While today we can enjoy Chevy’s impressive C7 generation Corvettes, let’s take a ride back to 30 years in the past to see how Chevy was pimping their then brand new C4 ‘Vette. This amusingly-dated commercial serves as both a time capsule and reminder of just how much automotive design and technology have evolved in the past three decades.

Miss Daisy’s 1949 Hudson Commodore 8

Miss Daisy’s 1949 Hudson Commodore 8
The elegant Hudson Commodore 8 was likely chosen for the 1989 Oscar-winning film Driving Miss Daisy because it reflected the southern elegance of the title character, Jessica Tandy’s Miss Daisy Werthan. Of course, the car played a central role throughout the film since Morgan Freeman played Miss Daisy’s chauffeur.

1970s Jaguar XJ Goes Drag Racing

1970s Jaguar XJ Goes Drag Racing
While the 1970s Jaguar XJ is certainly an iconic vehicle, it was better known for its luxury and styling than for its performance (except maybe the XJ12). But where there’s a will, there’s a way, and in this case we have footage of an early 1970s XJ that’s been fitted with a 700 horsepower, turbocharged GM LSx (402ci) engine.

50 Years of Mustang

50 Years of Mustang
Jay Leno gets together with Lee Iacocca to show off the very first Mustang to roll off the assembly line, and take us back to the earliest days of America’s seminal pony car. We’re also enamored of the unrelated, but equally enthralling Mustang Mach 1 prototype, which we’ve seen in person at the Henry Ford Museum.

1958 Ferrari 250 GT LWB California Spider
Just 50 of this Italian two-seater were ever made, so its no wonder this incredible piece of automotive history is expected to fetch between $7 million and $9 million when it hits the auction block this coming January.

Jaguar E-Type Lightweight Recreated

Jaguar E-Type Lightweight Recreated
The Jaguar E-Type is certainly one of the most beloved vehicles of all time. Companies like Eagle have created modern day replicas of the car, but they’re basically modern cars that look like classics. In the case of Jason Len, he started out over 30 years ago with a classic 1964 E-Type, and took his time turning it into a true race car.

D-Day: The Jaguar D-Type

D-Day: The Jaguar D-Type
As Jaguar’s E-Type seemingly gets the majority of attention from classic car enthusiasts, it’s easy to neglect the incredible car that pre-dates it – the open air, single-seater D-Type – built from 1954 to 1957. In this short film by Kidston, actor Chris Barrie gets to sit behind the seat of this rare specimen of British car history, with the help of famed Jaguar test driver Norman Dewis, who raced the aircraft-inspired D-Type back in its heyday.
