33 Years in the Barn: 1971 Alfa Romeo GTV

Factory Spider: 1973 Ferrari 365 GTS/4 Daytona

The Ferrari Daytona is undoubtedly one of the more significant sports cars ever made, and it has enjoyed tremendous staying power on the sports car marketplace. Like all of the other truly great sporting and exotic models, the Daytona’s… more»

Luxury Off-Roader: 1989 Laforza

Do any of you have a list of vehicles that are just an awful idea as potential projects, but you still want to own anyway? I do, and right near the top of said list is a Laforza SUV…. more»

Entry Level Exotic? 1977 Ferrari 308 GTB

I have always been a proponent of not ignoring potentially risky cars due to the risk factor alone, especially if the price is right. This 1977 Ferrari 308GTB has a variety of red flags working against it, but it… more»

Five Speed: 1971 Maserati Indy

When a manufacturer shifts its attention from two-seat sports cars to four-seat grand tourers, execution must be impeccable – or customers will decamp. For Maserati – having birthed the Ghibli in 1967 as a follow-on to its two-seaters (the… more»

One of 53: 1995 De Tomaso Guarà Coupe

Tired of drowning in a sea of Mustangs at Cars ‘N Coffee? Seen so many Camaros that you have their tail lights memorized by year? We have the antidote. Come up with $229,000 and you can be the only… more»

38k Original Miles: 1979 Maserati Merak SS

It is said that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. That is undoubtedly true with classic cars. That is why some enthusiasts consider the Maserati Merak one of the most beautiful Italian supercars of all time, while… more»

Sharp Italian! 1996 Fiat Coupé 16V Turbo

Fiat cooked up this hot yellow number a decade or more after leaving the American market. Somehow this wedge-shaped 1996 Fiat Coupé 20V Turbo made its way to Morristown, New Jersey, and while not perfect, the tangy slice of… more»

California Clean: 1977 Alfa Romeo Spider

I once bought a close relative of this car, a 1976 Alfa Spider, for $1,200 and used it as a daily driver—though not without such foibles as a noisy differential, copious rain leaks (despite a new top) and, inevitably… more»

Early Example? 1971 De Tomaso Pantera

Lee Iacocca was a master at spotting a gap within Ford’s model range and devising the right car to plug that gap. Most vehicles were company-developed, but the De Tomaso Pantera represented an attempt to incorporate a car from… more»

Red Bull F1 Tribute: 1989 Lamborghini Countach Replica

After having looked at a lot of Lamborghini replicas over the years, I’m honestly not usually very impressed with them. Typically, they just vaguely look like the real thing and are poorly put together. Don’t get me wrong, I… more»

Celebrity Owned: 1984 Lamborghini Countach LP5000 S

The Lamborghini Countach could be genuinely considered a “poster child” of the 1980s. Tens of thousands of posters of this Italian thoroughbred graced the bedroom walls of teenagers during that period, but the chance has presented itself for someone… more»

1960 Ferrari 250 GT Coupé Series II Pinin Farina

When it came to road cars, Enzo Ferrari was a dilettante for at least a decade. Oh, he made the 166 and 195 Inter models – with thirty-eight and twenty-eight produced, respectively. Some say the 250 Europa was Ferrari’s… more»

18K Original Miles: 1987 Alfa Romeo Spider

If you’re going to place a bet on which kind of barn find will have the lowest mileage, a convertible is a good bet. The likelihood of a car like a roadster being used solely in good weather and… more»

Saved at Auction: 1984 Maserati Biturbo

Ran When Parked: 1983 Alfa Romeo GTV6

If you’re like me, there’s always a car you wish you could own. Truth be told, I love old Alfa Romeos but have failed in my attempt to live with one (and that’s saying something, considering what I drag… more»
