The one-of-a-kind 1961 Kelly Corvette is proof to all car enthusiasts that anything is possible with enough luck, a great dream and lots of dedication.
People will start to realize soon enough how great the fourth-generation of the Lotus Esprit is, so I suggest building one while you can afford a donor car. And please make it as awesome as this.
Italy’s most famous road race, the Mille Miglia, is a thousand miles. (It’s in the name and everything.) This unique 1949 Fiat Topolino 750MM Zagato packs 13 air-cooled horsepower, but it went for it anyway.
A rev-happy 2.0 Alfa Romeo engine sending all the power to the rear wheels and a stunning Pininfarina body in a special shade of green nodding respectfully to mother nature. This is a perfect picture.
Hauling your race car with a truck and trailer is one of the biggest mental and financial costs of motorsports. Things are just better with a street-legal machine.
The Porsche 930 is quite possibly the ultimate Porsche 911 Turbo experience, blending together art and science in a classic, beautiful package.
The Fairlady 240Z. Do you know what a 350Z is? Do you know what a 370Z is? THIS is where it all started. This super hipster “period modified” car.
Josh Commons likes his Toyota FJ40 for its unapologetically utilitarian nature. Just about every old truck fan can see the beauty in that. But what makes this one even cooler is the fact that it still gets put to work on the trail.
I’ve never had much of a paternal instinct. Never saw myself with a big family or missing the bustle of a busy house. That all changed a bit last night.
But mostly fun. After all, if you can’t buy your dream car, why not make it yourself?
At 30, I still like to consider myself a relatively young man. As such, it pretty much takes an act of Congress to get me out of bed before 8am on a Saturday. Well, an act of Congress or the promise of some of Southern California’s finest vintage automobiles and 100+ miles of canyon driving through some of Malibu’s…
We recently took a second (ok, 14th) look at the movie Ronin, and examined the specific cars used and action sequences seen in the film. Of course, what better way to illustrate our story than with animated .gifs and, well, things just took off from there.
Every motorsport fan has a favorite driver, a favorite team and a favorite car, but how many can mention a favorite racing car livery, so easily? Fortunately, I can think of many—and that’s why, in my regular series, we’ll be bringing you a collection of outstanding examples of motor racing liveries, both well-known…
Of course, you visit and participate in the Mille Miglia because you love cars. But there is much more to Italy than great driving roads and history—and don’t tell us you were planning on finding your meals in between fuel additives at the closest gas station.
Mille Miglia! Never two words ever sounded so daring and evocative when put together. People always seem to take a moment to pronounce them with the right amount of emphasis, just if they want to stress how important this event is. As a matter of fact, the Mille Miglia has always been a sensation, a race followed…
You may think it strange, but I enjoy listening to the type of soundtrack music you might find on a film like Get Carter, Bullitt or The Ipcress File. Much crime drama TV produced during the ’70s used these films as their model, and a huge number were produced all requiring incidental music. Amazingly, this music was…
Porsche and the rear window wiper are inexorably linked in the annals of automotive history. And for good reason. While rear wipers were around as an accessory as far back as the 1940s, they never became commonplace. In the mid-fifties, interest picked up a bit in Italy. In 1955, Ferrari installed a pair on a 250 GT…
Petrolicious recently sat down with Shaheen Armin, a young man who quit his job designing new cars in the U.S. in order to create a documentary about a nearly unknown classic car. The Paykan, or “Arrow” in Persian was made in Iran since the ’60s, becoming known as “the national car of Iran” mostly because it was made…
As soon as we were introduced to CycleKarts, we had to learn more about them. That quest for knowledge eventually led to us a feature story and a lot of people trying to wrap their heads around these little machines. Then, in our comments, a link to this video was shared…and everything changed.
