Pick of the Day: 1988 BMW M5

Known as an unassuming high-performance sedan, the 1988 BMW M5 is considered a pioneer in its class and legendary in BMW motorsports history. The car seemed to come out of nowhere, beating Ferraris while holding the title of being the fastest production sedan of its time.

Pick of the Day: 1993 Bentley Turbo R

Pick of the Day: 1993 Bentley Turbo R

From the 1950’s through the early 1980’s Bentley cars were for the most part badge-engineered Rolls-Royces with the only difference being the grille and the logos. This all changed in the late 1980’s with the launch of the Bentley Turbo. The Turbo was a look back at the sporting Bentley cars of the 1920s and […]

Classic profile: Cup-winning 1905 Richard-Brasier

I came across this postcard in Monterey last year and couldn’t resist. As it states, the card illustrates the Richard-Basier stand at the Paris Salon in 1905. The star-car of the French show, the 1905 Gordon-Bennett winning racer is seen front and center. The French firm of Richard-Brasier has a confusing history with many name […]

Pick of the Day: 1951 Nash Rambler Country Club

Pick of the Day: 1951 Nash Rambler Country Club

The Pick of the Day is conceivably the cutest car in the known universe, as chubby and round as a baby panda. This sparkling 1951 Nash Rambler Country Club hardtop is a red-and-white concoction that looks like an ice-cream sundae on wheels. The cheery little Nash is offered for sale by a classic car dealer […]

Pick of the Day: 1929 Ford Model A roadster

Since I was spending much of the summer in Michigan last year, Jonathan Klinger, vice president of public relations at Hagerty, invited me to meet up one Friday at the Gilmore Auto Museum to help teach a group of teenagers how to drive stick-shifted classic cars. (Note: If you ever receive such an invitation, accept […]

Pick of the Day: 1966 Sunbeam Tiger

Pick of the Day: 1966 Sunbeam Tiger

The Ford-powered Sunbeam Tiger once was perceived as the poor man’s Shelby Cobra, being a similar concept of shoehorning an America V8 into a British roadster. But now, Tigers roar with their own performance magic and strong values. Our Pick of the Day is a 1966 Sunbeam Tiger MK1A that the private seller describes as […]

Pick of the Day: 1971 Datsun 240Z

Pick of the Day: 1971 Datsun 240Z

According to an article written in June 1970 by Car and Driver, “The difference between the Datsun 240Z and your everyday three-and-a-half thousand dollar sports car is that about twice as much thinking went into the Datsun. It shows. For the money the 240Z is an almost brilliant car.”

Driven: 2015 Toyota Prius c hybrid

Driven: 2015 Toyota Prius c hybrid

My favorite form of Toyota’s ubiquitous hybrid car, the Prius c is a subcompact hatchback that delivers sporty handling and a fun driving experience as well as a solid 50 miles per gallon. For one thing, the styling is more expressive and appealing than the doorstop-shaped standard Prius. The car’s design goes a long way […]

Pick of the Day: 1976 Rolls Royce Corniche convertible

Pick of the Day: 1976 Rolls Royce Corniche convertible

Of all the cars in the world, none is more storied and more impressive than a Rolls-Royce. The company’s motto is “The best car in the world,” and a good example of any Rolls-Royce certainly delivers on that promise. This is partly due to the fact that a Rolls-Royce has always been one of the […]

Pick of the Day: 1955 Ford Thunderbird

Pick of the Day: 1955 Ford Thunderbird

This is the 60th anniversary year for the fabulous 1955 Ford Thunderbird, built to compete against Chevrolet Corvette and the onslaught of popular sports cars coming from England and Italy. This was when Ford was just coming out from behind its boxy, conservative post-war look with an array of stylishly modern automobiles. But none showed […]
