I never took much of an interest in cars. My father sometimes took me to classic car meetings, but it always figured that owning one was out of my reach…until I bought my first car in 2013, a 1967 Trabant 601. In a roundabout way, driving the little two-stroke machine led to my next classic, a Volvo P1800E. Here’s how it happened.

The Del Monte Forest of Pebble Beach, CA is a serene place on an overcast Thursday afternoon, as the crisp ocean breeze flows a gentle fog through the pines. It is so quiet and peaceful that it's hard to imagine that between 1950 and 1956, these narrow roads through the dense forest were used as a racetrack. My name is Joshua Scherling, I drive a 1952 Jaguar XK120 on the old Pebble Beach circuit.

There are few companies as synonymous with light weight as Lotus is. What began as, essentially, hill climb “trials” cars, Colin Chapman and Lotus have morphed over the years from a pure race car manufacturer into one that’s known more for its road cars. If you’re looking for something a bit more extreme, however, this Italian-owned Exige S1 is about as raw as Lotus gets these days.

Hello everyone, my name is Aadjan van Holst from Northland, New Zealand, and this is the story of my old Porsche. I became interested in cars and motor racing at a very young age. I fell in love with the a Porsche 911 at age 10 when I saw a black Carrera outside my dad's workshop. The shape, the dimensions and the sound and the look of these cars was incredible to me. From that moment on I was hooked.

I wish I could say I grew up learning how to wrench for my father, but in reality it was very much a self-taught skill. I began my petrolhead ways tinkering with a number of cars. However, a few years in, I began to losing interest in working on modern cars. I found little satisfaction from driving my completed projects and yearned for something more pure. This is when the Datsun 240Z came into my life.

My name is Tim Loosen, and I live a two minute drive from the famous Zolder racetrack in a town called Zonhoven in Belgium. My car is a 1986 Toyota Corolla GT or as most people know it, the AE86. This story is about my experiences with that car and another classic Toyota, a SP60 Starlet.

One day, on the way to work, I saw the car. I thought it was a Toyota Crown at first, but it was far grander. It was parked in front of the Officer’s Club and it had a presence that is hard to put into words. The design was fairly conservative, but something drew my attention to it...

I'm 17 years old I’d like to share a few stories about my little classic car. My dad and I share it, but I can count the number of times I've seen him with it on one hand… Anyway, it's a 1958 Fiat 500 Jolly. We initially acquired it for use out in Sag Harbor, NY, but after we stopped going there, we brought it back home to Oklahoma City, where it lives.
