1981 Lancia Beta 2000 with 37,000 miles

1977 Alfa Romeo Montreal Targa

1968 Bizzarrini 5300 GT Strada – REVISIT

Considered by many to be one of the prettiest GT cars ever made, the Bizzarrini 5300 GT Strada I wrote up in April is back up on eBay. With bidding at $200,000 but the reserve still on, there's a long way to go until this car hits...

1962 Ferrari 250 GT Cabriolet Pininfarina Series II
As series of cars go, I don't believe that any can match the pure beauty, speed and desirability of the Ferrari 250 line. The variations are seemingly endless; from the iconic Testarossa, the stunning GTO, elegant and brutal SWB in...

1972 Fiat 130 Coupe

1972 Fiat 130 Coupe
Fiat's rebirth in the United States with the 500 models and a partnership with Chrysler is a bit of a sad turn of events for the legendary company in my mind. True, it's great to see them back on U.S. shores, but when one considers...

1989 Lancia Delta HF Integrale

1989 Lancia Delta HF Integrale
There are few cars that combine so many of my favorite things quite like the Lancia Delta Integrale. Born to race, the Delta successfully combined elements of the E30 M3, Golf GTi and Audi Quattro to create its own legacy. The box...
