2004 Enzo Ferrari Apr10

2004 Enzo Ferrari

At the Paris Auto Show in September 2002, the world waited for the successor to the Ferrari F50 with anxious anticipation. The introduction of a Ferrari supercar was something that happened approximately every 10 years, and the car that emerged from under that red car cover would certainly set the bar for performance cars for years to come. The company was in excellent shape, as it was just two Formula One Grands Prix away from securing another World Championship, and they were selling more cars than they ever had before. The car they were about to introduce would prove to be the “icing on the cake” of a wonderful year. Instead of continuing with tradition and naming this car F60, Chairman Luca di...

1955 Ford “Beatnik Bubbletop” Custom Mar18

1955 Ford “Beatnik Bubbletop” Custom

Bubbletops are a fascinating part of the custom-car world. Pioneered by such restyling maestros as Ed “Big Daddy” Roth and Darryl Starbird, Bubbletop cars wonderfully combine fascination of 1950s Americana with jet age fighter aircraft, rocketry, space travel and above all, the promise of the future, both real and imagined. The builder of this amazing car, Gary “Chopit” Fioto, admits that as a kid growing up on Long Island, New York he was fascinated with bubbletops, particularly those of Darryl Starbird. Fioto’s nickname, “Chopit,” craftily describes his central customizing philosophy. After he impressed custom-car traditionalists with his new interpretation on an old theme, a chopped ’50...

Cars and Coffee, March 2016 Mar05

Cars and Coffee, March 2016

For the first time in nearly a year and a half, I finally made it to the Scottsdale Cars and Coffee. It’s an event I was at at the very beginning and never missed for over three years. But as life got busy and nights got late, it became increasingly difficult to force myself out of bed before sunrise and make the 30 minute drive to Scottsdale. But, I finally made that trip again and I’m very glad I did. Not only did I see a lot of familiar faces, but also a lot of wonderful cars. When I first started going almost nine years ago, it was a small group of about 20 cars and virtually no “spectators”. I was just a handful of people taking photos and back then it was difficult NOT to see...

The Noisy Gemballa Mirage GT Mar24

The Noisy Gemballa Mirage GT

While a the 1836 shoot, a somewhat expected and somewhat notorious guest showed up, the blue and yellow Gemballa Mirage GT owned by Ben Chen (@8bc8 on various social media sites). Now, personally I’m not wild about what Gemballa and similar tuners do to these supercars and, the vast majority of the time, feel like their modifications are detrimental, but it’s hard to argue with the sound this car makes. Here’s a short clip of the Gemballa Mirage GT accelerating up a hill in Arizona and the Audi R8 that follows close behind only helps illustrate how intense that exhaust note really is. The video cannot be shown at the moment. Please try again...
