Which group do you side with?

Unless you’re Jay Leno, you just can’t buy every car you covet, nor can you keep every car that comes into your possession. Sometimes, the lack of time, money, or space (or all three) conspire such that a car cannot be purchased, or has to be sold. Sometimes, they just get away... What car do you wish you had never sold, or wished you had purchased, but let slip through your fingers?

As a younger fan, I never had the pleasure of watching Ayrton Senna in the wet, or Jackie Stewart earn his title as the King of Monaco, but I have tremendous respect and appreciation for Formula 1’s heritage. As the sport has become tamer and a bit softer over the years, however, I fear that I might have missed the golden years of Formula 1...

Although we're still trapped in winter's icy throes, spring and its blossoms are just around the corner for most of us. And while Petrolicious is based in Southern California, we're limited from embarking on long, epic drives by the fact that most of the US lays dormant under a blanket of snow...

Let's make this clear at the outset: the twelve-cylinder engine is the pinnacle of automotive powerplants. Yes, there have been V16s, but twelve-cylinder engines produce smooth, easy power and torque throughout the range and are the conventional choice for any machine whose mission is clear and uncompromised.

We've encountered many cars that elicit people to comment about their wonderful patina. And frequently they're right. But sometimes, we see an old car that looks like it served as a chicken coop, not someone's transportation. It looks awful. And yet, inevitably, someone will comment about the amazing patina. Patina?!...

Many of the most beloved and revered vintage cars were, themselves, the result of a special kind of perseverance, passion, and grit despite seemingly overwhelming obstacles. These are the cars that have risen from a war's ashes, survived in spite of a suffocating oil crisis, or simply thrived in the face of seemingly oppressive government regulation...

I made quite an entrance as the blue Viper billowed steam like a nineteenth-century locomotive.

The Lancia Stratos Zero is a far cry from the production Stratos no matter how wild the Stratos corsa or stradale are.

But how many other concepts didn't make it into production, in any form?
