Abarth 2000SP

August 4th was a Happy 70th Birthday for Leo Kinnunen, seen here at the Mugello circuit in 1970, weilding a smooth little Abarth 2000SP.

Now, that’s what I’m talkin’ about!

Gérard Larousse and Willi Kauhsen pilot a lovely Porsche 917LH at Le Mans in 1970.

The other LH was entered by Martini Racing, qualified by Willy Kauhsen and Gérard Larrousse on 12th position. The spectacular livery of this car was elaborate whirls and swoops of light green on a dark blue background. The car with the 4.5L engine gained the nickname of the Hippie Car or the Psychedelic Porsche from the team and media.

They finished in 2nd place!

Those were the days, my friend.

Bold, blue and beautiful.

This OLD Corvette DESTROYS Supercars!!!

This OLD Corvette DESTROYS Supercars!!! In todays episode we test out Superformance’s 1963 Corvette Grand Sport! It is insane…

Well, it’s not old at all, is it… gosh, it’s completely brand new. It’s built by Superformance, a wonderful company that made their mark many yarn ago with a fantastic GT40. Which was and is as stunning as this car.

But, you know, I’ve really been digging Corvettes lately and this one is by far the best I’ve ever seen. But it is a fact of my life that $189,000 is not and never will be available to buy one of these, which I would do, even though my eyes won’t let me drive it. I suppose that in theory, I could win a lotto, but I doubt that God’s curse on my life would allow it.

And now…
