Fastest American Production Cars
When most people think of the fastest cars, they usually look to European sports cars. The Ferrari, Bugatti, Lamborghini, and Porsche sports cars have continually impressed car enthusiasts who look for as much speed as possible. American fast-car enthusiasts are not limited to the automakers in Italy, Germany, and the UK, because there are several extremely fast cars that are manufactured in the United States. These are some of the fastest:
Transformers and the Iconic Cars
You might think that the Transformers vehicles are limited to the hot yellow Chevy Camaro, the big semi truck cab, the Hummer, and the Pontiac Solstice. Those who are new to the world of Transformers are often surprised to find out that there are several different versions of the characters that change from recognizable vehicles to powerful robots. These are a few of the most iconic vehicles in the Transformer universe:
Car Furniture: Hot or Not?
Having a garage full of your favorite cars is one thing, but what about a house full of your favorite cars – as furniture? You no longer have to visit a 1950’s themed restaurant to find furniture made from car parts. Clever designers are turning every type of car and parts into useful furniture. Would you invite these cars into your home as furniture?
Ford Mustang Furniture
Ford Mustangs from the 1960s have that unmistakable grill and some people have been able to turn the front end into a bar. By chopping off the front and artfully placing a glass tabletop above it, you, too, could have a Ford Mustang bar in your home, too.
The Pink Lambo is the Stuff of Legends
If you are fortunate enough to see exotic Italian cars on American roads, you are most likely to see them painted shades of racecar red, sexy black, or brilliant yellow. But, this is not the case for those living along the Hudson River just north of New York City. In the community of Hyde Park, one woman owns an iconic pink Lamborghini Espada.
Amazing Cars Discovered in Barns
If you thought garages were the best places to store cars, you are correct. Sadly, when people forget to park their cars in their garages, they end up forgetting about them. This is why so many amazing cars are left in unusual places and forgotten about, only to be discovered by passers by who happen to notice the fine lines through all the rust, dust, and grim. Here are a few notable “barn finds”:
Beautiful Sports Cars from the 1970s
When thinking of the cars from the 1970s, it is easy to think of the hits and misses. While the 1970s brought us unforgettables (that we would love to forget) like the AMC Pacer and Gremlin, the Ford Mustang II and the Pinto, as well as the Chevy Vega and Chevette, there have been true unforgettables (for all the right reasons). The majority of the unforgettables came to us from Europe in the form of exotic sports cars. Many of the best cars from the 1970s look more like artwork, especially compared to the pieces that were coming out of American factories. These are a few of the best:
Saving Your Soul with a Lamborghini
In the aftermath of a horrible break-up, Richard Jordan of Texas sold everything he owned and bought a Lamborghini Gallardo. He did not buy the car to get the girl back. He bought it to save his soul. Much like the way the movie character Forrest Gump ran across the country to free his soul from his lost love, Jordan put $75,000 down on a Lamborghini Gallardo to drive it across the country to free his soul.
Leonardo Dicaprio Movie Cars
Leonardo Dicaprio is one of the most talented modern-day actors. Since he plays major roles in many period-piece films, he often finds himself being able to enjoy driving classic vehicles. Interestingly, the very first car he ever owned was a Ford Mustang from the 1960s. Moving many years into the future, he now is personally involved in environmental issues and he personally drives cars that are environmentally friendly. Despite the fact that he is such an environmentally friendly actor, many of the vintage cars he was fortunate enough to drive were anything but environmentally friend. These are a few of the more notable cars:
Back in August we helped to spread the news about the fact that a vehicle that many consider to be “the most famous car in the world” was going up for sale. On October 27th the annual RM Automobiles of London sale took place across the drink, and the centerpiece of the show was the 1964 Aston Martin DB5 that Sean Connery famously drove as agent 007 in the unforgettable James Bond movies Thunderball and Goldfinger.
