The Jeep FC 150 Concept Is The Forward Control Wrangler Truck Of Your Dreams

What happens when you take perhaps the best Jeep engine of all time, the AMC 4-liter, and plop it under perhaps the sexiest Jeep body of all time, the FC pickup? Answer: borderline perfection. The Jeep FC 150 Heritage concept is a stock 1960 FC-150 body sitting atop a 2005 Jeep Wrangler TJ frame—a true recipe for success. It was unveiled today ahead of the upcoming Moab festivities, in which I’ll be taking part. The Jeep FC 150 Heritage has the venerable 4-liter and three-speed auto from a TJ (the…

Million-Dollar Mustang? This 1964.5 Indy 500 Pace Car Is Banking on It

On behalf of the nation’s Mustang collectors, we must ask: Would you pay $1.1 million for one? That’s the asking price a North Carolina dealer wants for a purportedly original 1964.5 Mustang convertible pace car driven at the 1964 Indy 500 that same year. It’s damn beautiful, alright: white over white with a white top, blue center striping, Firestone whitewalls, Motorola two-way radio, and twin checkered flags fluttering from chrome stanchions mounted under the rear bumper. Trouble is, the listing has languished on eBay Motors for more than a year….

A team…

The stunning Alfa Romeo Carabo: a futuristic concept car from 1968

Sometimes, even those that don’t like driving and don’t enjoy high speeds can be captivated by the design of a car. The Alfa Romeo Carabo is one such head-turning vehicle. It’s a pity it was just a concept car, and there are no more of those on the streets today. The Alfa Romeo Carabo was revealed at the 1968 Paris Motor Show. The designer, or should we say, artist, that shaped this car was Marcello Gandini from the car design company Gruppo Bertone. For those who don’t know, Gandini was an Italian…

Meet the man with a million-dollar Hot Wheels collection

As kids, a lot of us had a dedicated play room for our toys. But it’s a rare thing to see a grown man who still has a room dedicated to his Hot Wheels. Then again, if you had Bruce Pascal’s collection, you’d probably devote a room in your house to them, too. After all, Pascal owns more than 3500 Hot Wheels cars, a collection that he claims is worth well over a million dollars. That includes 175 rare prototypes that were never released to the public, as well as…

The Incredible Workshops of Maranello’s Master Craftsmen

Every day, a tiny city in the north of Italy is shaken by the noise of freshly-tested vehicles straight from the factory: Ferrari’s. The majority of the people from Maranello live with the spirit of the most famous car manufacturer in the world. You can sense it in every corner, and I don’t just mean the test cars with prova plates, cruising around the area from dusk ’til dawn. Ubiquitous stickers and flags in places like restaurants, hairdressers, hotels and even butchers tell you that you are in the Ferrari…

$4M should buy the most gorgeous Jaguar you’ll see today

In a few weeks, this striking 1955 Jaguar D-Type will be sold at auction for as little as $4,000,000. Such a price purchases more than just a beautiful antique automobile, but a piece of history. It’s history that separates your standard old Jaguar from an icon like this. And what a history it is. This 1955 Jaguar D-Type rolled out of the factory 59 years ago this February. It was one of only 54 ever produced for private customers, a vehicle built for sportsmen who wanted to dominate their local…

Would you buy a 750-hp electric muscle car?

John Wayland has spent a fair chunk of his adult life tinkering with a 10-second Datsun 1200 coupe. That’s good enough to garner the guy a spot in our book of personal heroes, but the fact that the car gets down the quarter with two nine-inch electric motors instead of a small-block V8 puts him in a category all his own. Now he wants to build electric conversions for classic muscle cars, starting with the Ford Mustang.  Hemmings has a brilliant write up on Wayland and his business partner Mitch…
