non-N.A.R.T. 365 GTB/4

The stunning and iconic Ferrari 365 GTB/4. The regular non-N.A.R.T. variety.

N.A.R.T. 365 GTB/4

Iconic for a reason… it was g o o d ! Affectionately known as “Daytona.”

The red #1 car above originates from here in my hometown, just up the road at the home of the North American Racing Team of Luigi Chinetti. God, did I love going over there.

It is a sad thing that this fantastic machine never got past the handful that got built. Look at that thing… it’s gorgeous. Long the company that “didn’t get it” … when they finally did, they blew them all away with this.

And then, they collapsed in upon themselves like collapsing things do.

I am a devoted fan of the Mk I… because, well, because it was the most fun car I ever had. Lightweight with a tenacious little engine and the real source, the most perfect ratios ever combined. It simply owned the city streets as well as the marvelous minitwisty bits here in the vicinity of the Hauptquartier.

This modern one is lookin’ mighty fine, I’d say.

Sigh…

Here cuz quarterturnthrottle reblogged a post by schwarzie11.

These T70s are just gorgeous, in my humble opinion. One time while I was in high school there was a British Racing Green T70 Mk III coupe with a New York license plate on it over at Chinetti’s.

Yes, we wuz excited. =]

I presume that it features 850 ponies… that is a nice number.

Being a Stangman, I am smiling and I think Carroll is, too, from on high.

lumma

Wait… it’s a what?

Ah ha… Lumma Design is a German firm who will do this to your Range Rover for around 30,000 Yankee dollars.

Of course, if you want to spend even more of that filthy cash you surely can and for it you’ll get the high-perfo CLR-RS GT extras so you can go really wicked quick.

Alrighty, then!

The Beatnik Bubbletop

The Beatnik Bubbletop, a custom 1955 Ford created by Gary Fioto, sports a tinted Lexan bubble.

Auto designer Gary “Chopit” Fioto customized a 1955 Ford into a Bubbletop, giving it the nickname Beatnik after his famed car club.

The Beatnik’s engine is a Chevrolet 350 cubic inch small-block V-8, with stainless steel braided hoses and a serpentine belt system – all seen sticking out of an opening in the car’s hood.

Hey, here’s the rare and perhaps, rarified, W Motors Lykan Hypersport, a car with a name that appeals to the cryptozoologist in me.
