When thinking Ferrari it’s hard not to think Pininfarina. The legendary Italian carrozzeria has lent its pen strokes to the vast majority of Prancing Horses over the past six decades. But in the early days, the rapidly expanding coach builder couldn’t handle everything, which is why this gorgeous 1957 250 GT Coupe exists.  Continue Reading »

The Sherman M4 Was the Little Tank that Could

Sherman M4 4

The Sherman M4 tank is to World War II like roadies are to rock concerts: it did an enormous amount of work, yet it received far less recognition than it deserves. Never intended to go head-to-head with the German Mark IV Panther and Tiger tanks that it would ultimately face, the Sherman nonetheless held its own against bigger and far more capable machines.

When is a Pontiac Firebird not actually a Firebird? Answer: when it’s really a 1968 Chevrolet Camaro. This pedigreed pony car, which competed in the SCCA’s Trans-Am series, started life as a ’68 Camaro and wound up a class winner at the 24 Hours of Daytona as a Pontiac – not your typical racing story. You can make it yours when it goes up for sale at Russo and Steele’s Scottsdale auction in January.  Continue Reading »
