On a farm in France, in a deserted, run-down barn, an amazing discovery was recently made. And when we say amazing, we literally mean jaw-droopingly wonderful, as this discovery would make any automobile fan’s heart drop.
Inside of this barn on the farm, 60 classic cars dating back from the 1930’s, 1940’s, 1950’s and 1960’s are all stacked together, standing motionless and waiting for someone to rediscover them and restore them to their original beauty.
And well, someone has! (more…)
Classic, vintage cars always have a wonderful charm about them. Besides the fact that they remind us of days gone past (way past, in some instances) they are generally beautifully designed and a treat to drive in.
Recently, that treat was bestowed on Jay Leno of Jay Leno’s Garage (obviously). The ex-talk show host and avid vehicle enthusiast recently got the opportunity to take a ride in a beautifully restored, utterly charming, Ford Woodie.
Now if you don’t know what a Ford Woodie is, you will soon recognise it in this video. (more…)
We know there are some pretty expensive cars in the world. If you are dreaming of owning a Aventador, Bugatti or Rolls Royce Ghost – you know you’ll have to pay a pretty penny for one of those! However, the most expensive car in the world is not a modern, tech-loaded speed racer. No. In fact, it’s more than 50 years old.
Apparently, this 1962, Ferrari 250 GTO is the most expensive car in the world.
The Ferrari 250 GTO is, of course, an absolute classic. It’s famed throughout the auto world and will forever be remembered as one of the best and most impressive cars of its generation. It also helps that only 36 of these 250 GTO’s were ever made.
Most recently, another Ferrari 250 GTO sold at an auction for a record breaking $38.1 million. However, tis specific Ferrari 250 GTO – with serial number 3647GT – is valued at a whopping $60 million! (more…)
So you’re probably wondering what is so special about a loving son gifting his father a 1957 Chevy Bel-Air for his 57th birthday. Well, the fact that this has been a promise between father and son for more the 20 years and the way in which the dad reacts, will show you exactly why.
A long time ago, an 8-year old boy made a special promise to his father; he said that he will give him his dream car for his 57th birthday one day. That car was none other than the stunningly classic, Chevy Bel-Air.
So the years went by and while the father didn’t expect a promise made by a young, innocent 8-year old boy to be kept, he had the surprise of his lifetime when he found out it was. (more…)
