One of the Twelve Original Jaguar E-Type Lightweights Is For Sale

Back in 1964, the Jaguar E-Type Lightweight wasn’t as desirable as it is today. The company planned on building 18 Lightweights for competition use, but only managed to sell 12 examples before production ended. Since these cars are so rare, they’ve become a holy grail for classic Jaguar collectors everywhere, and almost never come up for sale. That’s why we think this particular example will be the star of the show once it goes up for auction in August.  This particular Lightweight was the factory works entry for Jaguar for…

Here are 10 of the most egregious examples sure to make you cringe. 10.) Hurst Dual Gate Transmission The message is clear here.

10 Chrysler-Mopar Cars That Have Been Forgotten

By cheatsheet Ah, Chrysler: the littlest of The Big Three. While Ford and GM seem to be locked in a permanent race for superiority (GM vastly outsells Ford; Ford has the insanely popular and profitable F-150), Chrysler has spent much of its history offering an alternative to the other two, and often with much success. Sure, it’s had its share of near-death experiences (the early ’50s, late ’70s, and late 2000s), but each time, it seems to bounce back with spectacular results. Chrysler, and all of its past and present brands…

THE 10 MOST KILLER RIDES OF THE ’90S, RANKED

Hollywood was red-hot in the 1980s, turning out classic films we still love today, so the film industry hit the ’90s at full stride. The car industry, on the other hand, dragged through the ’80s trying to recover from the doldrums of the ’70s.  So the automotive industry really kicked it into gear in the ’90s and cranked out some truly great rides like the ones below.  Super-exclusive exotic cars are cool pretty much whenever they were built, so we’ve mostly left them off our list. But we did find room…

This 1961 Chrysler 300G Is 19 Feet Long and Still Lighter Than a Hellcat

The 1961 Chrysler 300G is a rare car, so it’s only natural that Jay Leno has one. They only built about 1280 of them, mostly because it was an opulent luxury car with an equally opulent price tag. For your hard earned dollars, Chrysler gave you air conditioning, swing-out seats at the front and individual buckets at the rear, an Astrodome instrument cluster from the future, stiffer torsion bars and leaf springs, plus a 413cu.-in. engine, which did not come with hemispherical combustion chamber thanks to the bean counters, but…
