In the world of classic cars, Ferrari sits at the top. From there—depending on who you ask, of course, the waters get murky. If you’re interested in cars that have changed the world, however, Ferrari may not be the top marque. For Greg Long, the search and capture of interesting cars sort of runs in the family, and there were so many stories to tell that only a novel would do. Here are three engaging excerpts from “Found”.

Say “Ferrari” to most people and their eyes will sparkle with an image of a red sports car roaring through the scenery. Now, ask the same person where the first Ferrari debuted and the answer will likely be one of the big names—Monza, Spa-Francorchamps, the Nürburgring—and he’d be wrong. Ever hear of a little place named Piacenza?

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?

Five 1970s Supercars We Love

In the annals of automotive design, the 1970s is something less than a highlight. In the United States, we had a decade of cars that are now more valuable for their strength in a demolition derby than for their aesthetic or performance attributes. In Europe and Japan, however, a few exceptions to this decade of mediocrity managed to emerge, among them the the Lancia Stratos, the "Kenmeri" Nissan Skyline, and the Porsche 2.7 RS.

I started at Petrolicious as the editor about fourteen months ago and today I’m wrapping it up. I feel extraordinarily lucky to have held this position mostly because it allowed me the opportunity to have a dialogue with a broad, diverse audience that despite many geographic and cultural differences, are really just like me—hard-core classic car guys (and girls)...

It's been a while since we first shared Holger Schubert's Ferrari 512 BBi, but as it's the new year, we wanted to reflect on some of our favorite stories. So we've created a Petrolicious infographic that is chock full of interesting tidbits about the iconic car. For instance, did you know that only 387 of the first-generation 365BBs were ever built?

At both Petrolicious: Drive Tastefully events, the wide range of cars was astounding. At Drive Tastefully: Malibu, James Chen’s white-on-white Lamborghini Countach got me wondering who the first owner might have been. Was he (or she) a Lamborghini enthusiast trading up or perhaps a Miami drug lord who craved the attention and prestige a scissor-door Lamborghini would bring?

Barn finds are the ultimate in automotive mythology. It is the equivalent of sitting in a tavern sometime in the seventeenth century and being handed a map by a rushed, shadowy figure. Should you spend days and weeks and months chasing buried treasure? We’ve all heard stories of barn finds: Bugattis sunken in lakes to avoid taxes, neglected racecars in sheds around the world...

Ferrari collections come in all sizes and flavors, and no two are ever the same as each collector has his or her own distinct collecting style. David Lee’s collection is perhaps one that appeals most to the younger generation of enthusiasts, featuring all the supercar Ferraris from the ‘80s to present, as well as some of the most beautiful examples from the ‘60s.

A French Weekend With My Husband's Daytona Mistress

I have just returned from a quick weekend in France with my husband and his mistress. I know what you must be thinking, but I do rather like her. Although she’s loud (and I hate her perfume), she’s undoubtedly beautiful (stunning really) and being with her inevitably makes us the centre of attention–whether we want it or not...
