I was 11 years old, and it was Christmas Morning. The year was 1988, and my father had just given me a book called The World of Sports Cars. There were so many beautiful cars to learn about, but when I got to the M section and saw a car called the Marcos GT—designed and manufactured by the Wiltshire, England-based Marcos Engineering Group—it was love at first sight.

I have to be completely honest, I'm born of the Fast and Furious generation. I saw the movie as a freshly-licensed 16 year old, and it changed my world for the better—or at least that's what I'd like to think. After that movie, I started scouring the internet researching cars, motorcycles, planes, you name it. I think that's when I found my real love: playing with machines.

So there I was, moving to the countryside away from a village in which I was born and raised. There, we lived close to the railway station, but not anymore. I needed transportation, I like cycling a lot—but not during the winter or through rainstorms. I had some money, and I found myself a nice little green car—a 1967 Trabant 601 S Deluxe. It was to be my first car.

I bought this 1987 AW11 Toyota MR2 not long after I got my license; I bought it at a point in the mid-2000s where it was just a cheap old sports car—not new enough to generally be desirable, yet not old enough to be cool. Since then, it’s been a faithful and engaging companion.

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.
