Car Tales: The Maserati Mistral: Design Classic Blowin’ In The Wind…

'Visitors to the south of France at the end of summer may well be acquainted with the mistral. Often described as the chilly wind that blows in from north Africa heralding the shift to fall, that is not actually the case.

'Visitors to the south of France at the end of summer may well be acquainted with the...

Car Tales: A British Cultural Icon, The Aston Martin DB2/4 MK 2

'Although Aston Martins appeared in far fewer of the early Bond films than the myth suggests, the romantic existence of the fictional spy James Bond has been irrevocably associated with the Aston Martin motor-car. Ever since the appearance of Bond's gadget-packed Dubonnet Red DB5 in the Goldfinger movie, the Aston Martin car has been seen...

Car Tales: Jaguar XK120, The Movie Star’s Choice!

'The Jaguar XKE, the Jaguar XK150...Such defining pieces of automotive art. But of course they had a predecessor: the fabulous Jaguar XK120, manufactured from 1948 to 1954. It was the Jaguar XK120 that established Britain as a maker of great sports cars. By the time XK120 production stopped, a total of 12,064 had been sold, mostly in the...

Car Tales: Turbo-Charged For Life, Porsche 930 Turbo

'In 1974 there were new times for the Porsche motor company: the Porsche 911 Turbo arrived, or the Porsche 930 Turbo, as it was more customarily known. For the US market, however this development, the Porsche 911 Turbo, was not officially marketed until 1976: hence in America this year, 2021, is the official 45th anniversary of the marketing...

Car Tales: Call A Doctor! The Porsche 356A Speedster

'I love learning that one of my acquisitions at Beverly Hills Car Club has a fascinating back-story. Which is precisely what I have discovered about the fabulous 1957 Porsche 356A Speedster that we newly have for sale. It took a two flight journey to Lexington, South Carolina, to discover this. I always believe that everyone has their...

Car Tales: Jaguar XKE – A Car They Had To Name Twice

'The Jaguar XKE is such an utterly unique car it is almost impossible not to feel reverent before it. So unique, in fact, is this car that they named it twice: in the UK, where they originally were manufactured, from 1961 to 1974, they are called Jaguar E-types, but in the USA they are known as Jaguar XKEs. As the Beverly Hills Car Club...

Car Tales: Traveling Man – The Outstanding Mercedes-Benz SL Range

'I hear that in London in the 1970s and 1980s no car was considered more stylish and hip than the Mercedes-Benz 280SL, one of the three models in the W 113 model series; now legendary, this car has a more loyal fan base than any other Mercedes-Benz SL. On account of their slightly concave and very distinctive hardtop, designed by Paul Bracq...

Car Tales: A Gorgeous ‘Lambo’ 400GT

'I vividly recall being at Pebble Beach for Car Week at the RM Auction. Sitting in front of the parking lot was a gorgeous gunmetal grey Lamborghini 400GT. The car looked like a piece of art that you'd not only want to drive but also put in your living-room as a piece of art. These Lamborghini 400GTs were so beautifully designed. As only...

Car Tales: Amphicar, Gone Fishing!

"I had never associated a wicked sense of humour with President Lyndon Baines Johnson, who succeeded the assassinated Jack Kennedy in November 1963. But I was wrong. As the owner of one of the legendary Amphicars, he would certainly keep his friends on their toes. Driving his companions at his Johnson City, Texas, ranch in his 1961 model,...

Car Tales: Alfa Romeo – Che Bella Macchina

"Alfa Romeo is a particular way of living, of experiencing an automobile. The real essence of Alfa defies description. It can be compared to those irrational movements of the spirit that sometimes occur in man, and for which there is no logical explanation. We are in the realm of sensations, passions, things that have more to do with the...

Car Tales: 300SL, The Sports Car of the Century!

'Of all the vintage classic cars in existence, one that never fails to make me do a double-take is the Mercedes-Benz 300SL Roadster, an utterly beautiful piece of automotive engineering. To me, it is the unicorn of classics, the Navy Seal of vintage motor-cars. Unsurprisingly in 1999 the 300SL was voted 'sports car of the century'.The number...

Car Tales: Delorean, Back From The Future

''If my calculations are correct, when this baby hits 88 miles per hour, you’re gonna see some serious sh*t!' The immortal words of Dr Emmett Brown, played by the terrific Christopher Lloyd, to Michael J. Fox's Marty McFly in Back to the Future embody the entire premise of the time-travel classic and its employment of a DeLorean sports-car...

Car Tales: As Wild & Free As A Mustang

'When I lived in Australia, my Greek auntie had a 1967 Ford Mustang coupe 2-door hardtop. Even better, she had a pink 1967 Ford Mustang coupe. Both my parents drove classic Volvos – a 121 Amazon for my dad, and an 1800S for my mom – and so I had some understanding at a young age of how great such cars could be. But it was a combination...

Car Tales: The Air-Cooled Porsche 911 America Roadster

'There is often an interesting back-story to why people sell cars. All human life is there! For example, I bought a Porsche recently that was quite evidently in tremendous mechanical condition. But if that was the case, why was the paintwork faded and a bit scruffy? The Porsche in question was a 964, the Porsche 911 America Roadster, a limited...

Car Tales: A 1989 Ferrari Testosterone

'I've always loved Ferrari Testarossas, a car whose every attribute seems to suggest that it should really be called a Ferrari Testosterone, an unquestionably masculine car that looks even sexier when driven by a woman. The Ferrari Testarossa is something of an underrated gem: it has such an attractive design.

'I've...

Car Tales: A 1959 Jaguar XK150 from Sussex

'What often fascinates me is what happens to cars that have been sold by my Beverly Hills Car Club dealership. I cannot deny experiencing an element of emotional attachment with many of the vehicles I buy and sell. And when they leave my premises it can feel like letting your own child out into the world, asking myself 'what will happen...

Car Tales: A Rare 1988 De Tomaso Pantera GT5-S

'"It's really a late 1960s, early 1970s look that the De Tomaso Pantera had. The body design was from '71. It's an early, old supercar design. It looks like a James Bond car, like the Lotuses or Aston-Martins. With such great character, of a type that you don't see now.” That's the view of Brian of Murfreesboro, Tennessee, the guy who...

Car Tales: Find the Barn, A Red 1960 Mercedes 190 SL Roadster

'People love what we have come to know as 'barn finds.' I think it's connected to that perpetual hope of somewhere finding a buried stash of pirate gold in a chest deep within the ground. It sounds romantic and exciting, and the idea never fails to turn me on.'But what if in order to find the 'barn find' car, you...

Car Tales: The Immortal Austin-Healey

'The entire Austin-Healey range always has hit an extremely uplifting nerve in me: it's a marque as redolent as any other of British motoring panache, with a permanent place of honour in its history.'Donald Healey himself had been a First World War pilot who loved the very idea of cars. In 1931 he had won the Monte...

Car Tales: A 1963 Ferrari 250GTE 2+2 Coupe

'Call me old-fashioned but one of the things I really love is when a car has a complicated provenance. It’s an almost guaranteed proof of the vehicle’s interesting character.'And they don’t come much more complicated than a 1963 Ferrari 250GTE 2+2 Coupe I discovered and bought the other week.

'Call...

Car Tales: Maradona and His Porsche

'I've just seen that the other day the 1992 Porsche 911 Type 964 Carrera 2 Convertible Works Turbo Look owned by the late footballing superstar Diego Maradona was sold in Paris for €483,000, nearly twice the estimated sale price.'Widely regarded as one of the greatest players in the history of soccer, he was...

Car Tales: A 1997 Porsche 993 Turbo from Lincoln, NE

'In the almost twenty years that I’ve been dealing in classic cars I’ve observed how the notion of such classic pieces of art is no longer as date-tied as formerly. 'What do I mean? Well, I’m simply describing the passing of time as well as quirks within public taste. For example, I have heard that once Jaguar...

Car Tales: A Porsche 356SC Coupe Called KNULP

'What a great week. Not every day you get a chance to successfully purchase a 1965 Porsche 356SC coupe, an end of an era Porsche model before it was phased out by the 912. 'It was a wonderful opportunity to find a West Coast car that has not changed many hands in its lifetime - the last owner had the vehicle...

Car Tales: A pre-WW2 1939 Delahaye 135M Cabriolet!

'You cannot believe how excited I am. Out of the blue I located an extremely rare French motoring masterpiece. Not only that but I have managed to purchase it and now it is in my Los Angeles dealership. Utterly unique and literally a one-off, this pre-World War 2 1939 Delahaye 135M Cabriolet is one of only two examples of this classic model,...

Car Tales: Another 67 Ferrari 330 GTC

'You know those days when you feel like you’ve been hit by a bus? That is how this one started out. 'I had an important assignment, in which time would be of the essence. I had had a tip-off: a 1967 Ferrari 330 GTC was being offered for sale. And I wanted to make sure I was the first person to see it: I had made...

Car Tales: 1967 Ferrari 330 GTC

'Usually barn finds or their equivalent come to me. But sometimes I need to go out and find them for myself, as I did in 2013.That’s what happened when I heard through the grapevine about a Verde Pino green 1967 Ferrari 330 GTC, a state of the art collectible vehicle even for this legendarily exclusive marque...

Automobile Magazine Interviews Alex Manos

"For a classic-car fiend, walking onto the Beverly Hills Car Club's classic-car showroom floor is comparable to what a sneakerhead or watch collector experiences when they visit one of the world's greatest sneaker or watch boutiques." Automobile Magazine sits down with Beverly Hills Car Club's Alex Manos to talk about his...
