Ford Mustang / Shelby GT350 (1965)
So, when are we leaving?
Mercedes-Benz 280SL Pagoda (1971)
Desgined by Paul Bracq & Bela Barenyi. The Pagoda name comes from the style of the hard-top roof, which is visibily concave.
Opel Rekord Caravan PII (1960)
The sexiest/happiest Caravan Opel has ever made. Alright, it isn’t saying much.
The gorgeous Eagle Weslake Mark I (1966), at Mexico.
Dan Gurney was a very lucky man.

Jim Clark / Colin Chapman (1965)
Celebrating the Lotus win at the Nurburgring, which would give Clark his second world champion title.
Chevrolet Corvette (1966)
American muscle on American background. This is apparently one of the best 66 Corvettes you could ever buy, since it was given the top rating by the Corvette Restorers Society.
Plus, there’s something particularly cool about driving in a baby blue V8.
Ferrari 250 GT Berlinetta Lusso (1963)
There’s something deeply poetic about the sight of cars with a lot of history / pedigree in a museum, all sparkling clean and standing in the very same position for years in a row.
This Lusso was one of the few intended for actual racing, not road cruising, and yet, there it is, in its own form of casket.
Porsche 906E (1967)
The E stands for the german word for “injection”, which I’m too lazy to search for you today. (edit: about 10 people have already mailed me with the word Einspritzen. I’m guessing this is it, unless they were all insulting me in german).
Sixty five 906 were built, of these 9 prototypes with fuel injection.
Maserati Ghibli Spyder (1970)
Giugiaro styling and the wind blowing in your hair.
Ferrari 250 GTO (1962)
Not only one of the greatest pieces of automotive history to come out to the world, but a definitive turning point for Ferrari in every possible way.
In 1960, Bizzarrini was still working for Ferrari and had at its hands the responsibility for the 250 GTO: he cleverly went for the 3 liter V12 and the base body of the 250 GT SWB. He then began working with Scaglietti to work on the body of the Omologata.
After many fights with other engineers and old man Enzo himself, Bizzarrini was invited to leave Ferrari for good, being replaced by Mauro Forghieri who completed the project.
