I’m happy our pals at the Classic Car Club Manhattan just got a nice Lancia Delta Integrale 16V from Poland. I really am. But now, I think it’s time for Europeans to hide their Lancias before more and more Americans get the same idea.
This week on AFTER/DRIVE, Zac and Mike join host Mike Spinelli to determine whether the new GT will be the raw, race-bred driving experience like our '66 GT40, or suffer from the driving nannies that plague so many modern supercars today.
The Gulf 1966 Ford GT40 is most likely the coolest car in the Classic Car Club Manhattan's collection. Here's everything you should know about having such a beast in NYC.
Sometimes, life throws inconveniences at you. You can deal with it by either passing the problem to someone else, or applying a dose of common sense, a heaping of elbow grease, and take care of it.
For those unfamiliar with Summit Point, turn 4 is a fast, downhill, 90+mph right-hander that can be taken flat out in a spec Miata. Nicknamed "The Chute", it's butt puckering in the dry, but get smacked in the face by Mother Nature as you're hitting turn in, and it's terrifying.
The newest bit of kit in the Classic Car Club is something different. It's the American-made, all-electric Tesla Model S. We've all heard the reviews, but after 500 miles of polar-bear friendly motoring, Classic Car Club can finally tell you what it's REALLY like.
As a European, apart from eating double bacon cheeseburgers and drinking more filter coffee than ever before in your life, the best way to really get the feel of the United States in to drive iconic American cars. Like a '68 Dodge Charger R/T.
This is a 1969 Lamborghini Miura S, often named the most beautiful car ever made. I spent two hours with it, before it went (of course) to Jerry Seinfeld.
The story of how the co-owners of Classic Car Club Manhattan populated their garage of quirkpot classics is part of Jalopnik lore. Thus, their story — including how they keep all those temperamental bastards running well enough to drive every day — is a natural for the premiere episode of Jalopnik on DRIVE.
If you've seen Ray's impromptu interview with TopGear USA's Rutledge Wood, you only know the prototype for what Jalopnik TV will be about. But if you're in the New York City area on March 7, 2012 you may just get a sneak peak at the real show.
