Rare Coupe: 1975 Jaguar XJ6C Survivor

This 1975 Jaguar XJ6C is a rarely seen two-door version of the manufacturer’s iconic luxury saloon, and with under 90,000 original miles and no evidence of rust, it’s likely one of the few unrestored survivors left. This Jaguar has… more»

Black Plate Barn Find: 1964 Triumph TR4

A few years before one-time tractor mechanic Ferruccio Lamborghini produced his 350 GT, Italian design met farm machinery in the form of another sports car: a little English roadster called the TR4. This example is located in Chula Vista,… more»

No Reserve: 1975 Chevrolet Vega Cosworth

The Chevy Vega doesn’t have a big following with collectors, but the limited-edition Cosworth Vega does draw attention. That’s because of the all-aluminum inline-4  that was developed by Chevy but modified with a DOHC cylinder head designed by the… more»

Time to Bid! Lucky Collector Car Auctions Spring Classic

The 2021 Spring Classic event managed by Lucky Collector Car Auctions will feature a wide range of classics of every shape and size imaginable, happening both online and in-person June 12 and 13, 2021. This year’s collection is bursting… more»

No Reserve: 1960 Triumph TR3

There’s something quite endearing about classic British sports cars. They don’t possess the outright performance of a muscle car, but slipping behind the wheel of one provides one of the most engaging driving sensations that it is possible to… more»

English Corvette: 1980 Triumph TR8

I really didn’t want to show you this car. For years now, I’ve been aware of the fact that I need a V8 car in my collection. Fox bodies seemed too obvious, and the Europeans can’t build a V8… more»

Restoration Started: 1952 Jaguar XK120

How can you not know a Jaguar XK120 when you see one? It has some of the most distinctive lines on wheels and is indelibly seared in my memory by Lesney’s No. 32 Matchbox example from the early ’60s…. more»

World Championship Edition: 1978 Lotus Esprit S2 JPS

When it comes to collector cars, provenance is a big deal, but oftentimes a lack of it can be forgiven if the car in question is rare enough. In the case of this 1978 Lotus Esprit S2 John Player… more»

Unrestored 1961 Indian Police Trike!

Indian Motorcycle Company, its problematic name notwithstanding, was a hugely important company in American wheeled history. It was the country’s first motorcycle company (founded 1901), beating out the more ubiquitous Harley-Davidson (founded 1903) by more than two years. In… more»

Luxury Convertible: 2000 Jaguar XKR

UPDATE – The seller sent us additional photos of this sweet Jag! It might be newer than what we typically feature, but these are fun machines to drive, it’s clearly been well cared for, and the price seems right… more»

Rare Barn Find: 1950 Sunbeam Talbot Alpine Mk I

Now we’re talkin’, a for-real barn find in an actual barn – that’s a perfect image! Now the description is a bit confusing as this car is referred to as a Sunbeam Talbot Alpine and that’s close but not… more»

Rally-Inspired! 1987 Ford Escort RS Turbo

Zero to 60 in under four seconds… on gravel! That’s the legacy of Ford’s 600+ HP rally-racing Escorts. This consumer-version, a European-built 1987 Ford Escort RS Turbo, comes in well under 600 HP, but certainly proved sporty and competent… more»

Lance Reventlow’s 1962 Shelby Cobra

Most car guys/gals know what a Shelby Cobra is. Even those that are not consumed with all things automotive know one when they see it. A “Lance Reventlow” owned Cobra? Well, that one’s not ringing a bell. I researched… more»

Storage Unit Find: 4-Speed 1961 Jaguar MK2

It’s like a British smoking room on wheels! Jaguar advertising referred to the Mark II as, “Grace… Space… Pace”. This example is a bit forlorn looking on all three fronts but perhaps it can be resurrected. Let’s look it… more»

First Year Bugeye: 1958 Austin-Healey Sprite

The Austin-Healey Bugeye Sprite might not be a hard-edged sports car, but it makes up for its general lack of performance by being one of the most charismatic cars ever built. The owner of this 1958 Sprite found it… more»

40 Years In Storage: 1952 MGTD

Though the MGTC was the first model MG exported to the US in any numbers, it was the follow-up MGTD that really ignited the American appetite for British roadsters. This example, located in Roseville, Michigan, is available here on… more»
