We’re actually going to come out from behind our computers and cameras, and hit the road for Drive Tastefully: Paramount Ranch presented by Classic Car Capital. Unlike our last event, Drive Tastefully: Malibu, this one is open to everybody (with a vintage car of course).

Five German Sports Sedans Available Now for Under $25K

By Petrolicious Productions / 22 Oct 2014

Before Germany produced performance sedans, four doors were utilitarian, soulless appliances for transporting more than two people at a time; a disposable machine that announced, “I give up.” Sure, there were Detroit straight-line ponies good for a burnout but never designed to run at Nardo.

Here in Italy, where you might catch a glimpse of some nice Ferrari or Maserati hurtling noisily through the tall trees and narrow streets with a bit of luck, the Ford Mustang is quite unusual. In this case, we're talking about a particularly rare Ford Mustang Mach 1. The mythical "Pony car" was born as the Baby Boom generation came of age, right on time.

The 911 was in amazing shape, featuring only 37,000 original miles, and included everything that it did when it was first sold new, including the window sticker and even a packet of disposable gloves intended for roadside emergencies. Additionally, it’s completely stock and has never been altered or modified. Gary simply enjoys the rush of driving a Porsche convertible.

"If You Have a Passion for Old Cars, We Are All the Same!"

Sakoda-san took a break from fixing the window winder mechanism on the E-type and invited us into the fully stocked bar he’s constructed, complete with more memorabilia including framed pictures of himself with Stirling Moss and Jean Alesi. As we talked over coffee (served in delicate English tea-cups), Sakoda-san became very animated and retrieved old photo albums, books, and models from behind the counter to show us.

German manufacturers including BMW, Audi, and Mercedes-Benz have churned out many of the most notable sporty four-doors, packed with the style and performance you’d expect from the more expensive sports car models of their line ups. By the late ‘80s, a myriad of German sports sedans had been produced and refined, yet some clearly outshined others...

Giovanni Michelotti was a Prolific, Masterful Designer

He is credited with more that 1,200 designs–cars, and even buses and trucks–where at least one model was built. The quality, quantity, and breadth of his work are just some of the reasons why he was inducted into the European Automotive Hall of Fame in 2009. And somehow, he also found spare time to produce a few cars under its own name...

The Art of the Pin-Up

Pin-up art's roots lay in post-Victorian England and began, according to some, as a positive affirmation of feminine beauty that rejected the shame associated with physicality during the Victorian period. Those who disagree point to the objectification of women and claim this work demeans them. Regardless of your opinion, there is no debate as to the mastery of the artists behind the work.

What had I just done? The money was sent and gone. Last time, my research had been far more thorough and my actions much less impulsive. I was hooked before I read the end of the ad's second paragraph, but the fact that the seller was seemingly so forthcoming inspired confidence. Oh, and did I mention the car was across the US in Atlanta, Georgia?

There are the aesthetic considerations obviously, but the most loveable aspect of this car is its position within the two-speed, traditionalist position of the Australian classic car psyche (Holden or Ford). It would take some time to really portray the dualist mindset that many Australian blokes have when it comes to classics from the 1960s and ‘70s... being "is it a Holden or a Ford?"

Pre-war cars certainly won’t be going to the crusher anytime soon, but I wonder what will happen to concours' lawns and that wonderful knowledge base that will disappear when their owners do. What will Pebble Beach's green look like on a Sunday morning in the year 2040? Will it still be adorned with Packards, Studebakers, and other classics…or will another generation’s idols take their place?

In some of these archival photos from Ferrari North America, you'll spot famous faces but we'd also like to recognize some of the men who did not work for fame or extreme pay, rather for their passion. Without their devotion, and the commitment of men like them around the world, there would be no Ferrari or motorsport.
