Many folks think that classic cars are unsuitable for daily driving and perhaps if you own a Ferrari 625/250 TRC this is true. But isn't it a joy to drive your classic?

Earlier today, Ferrari Chairman Luca Cordero di Montezemolo stepped down from his position leaving Fiat Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne to run the business.

This Alfasud's current owner, one of only three, describes it as being in "excellent condition." The Giugiaro-styled body has never been welded and the front and rear calipers–which are connected to inboard brakes–have recently been reconditioned.

This year marks Maserati’s 100th anniversary and in celebration of their heritage they launched a poster series celebrating their greatest sporting successes. Alas, the series is closing with the fifth and last release of this limited edition collection of prints, never published before.

Technically, this tiny bubble-car can fit eight people, and is like a mullet. How so? It can seat two behind its refrigerator style door (business up front)...and a bartender and five patrons on its included bar trailer (party in the back).

This Alfa may be black and Blu (Olandese), but it's far from beaten up–even with (an assumed) 125,160 kilometers. According to its owner, it's "original and without modifications" and 99 percent free of corrosion. It also includes an "original log book and some service history."

Just because a car hasn't been restored doesn't mean it hasn't been cared for. This 1970 Quattroporte's body and interior have survived since the Nixon administration. However, its engine has been given new parts–necessities after nearly four and a half decades.
