Technical Knockout!

A Stunning Trio of Late Production Ferrari 512 Berlinetta Boxers The Ferrari Boxer first appeared at the 1971 Turin Motor Show with the introduction of the 365 GT4 BB. Designed as a competitor to Lamborghini’s Miura, it didn’t actually hit production until two years later, in 1973. Enzo Ferrari had long been a champion of the midengined layout, but was afraid buyers couldn’t handle such cars. That thinking changed in the late-sixties. Though never officially a Ferrari, the midengined Dino was an undeniable success and helped pave the way for what is now considered a staple in the exotic community, the midengined Ferrari road car. The Berlinetta Boxer was the first of these cars. Though the...

Not Something You See Every Day

A Showcase of The Weird and Wild in Scottsdale, Arizona. Over the past couple years I’ve been attending local automotive events increasingly frequently and along the way I’ve seen and photographed quite a few cars and bikes that just make you scratch your head. Whether it’s “why?” or “how?” or just “huh?” one thing is certain, these things are unique. Vans and buses are a very popular subject for the weird and wild and often great for a laugh. This “1932 Ford Anniversary bus” recently sold at Barrett-Jackson for $130,000 and features a 454 big block, 871 blower, 14″ front brakes, 20×16″ rear wheels amongst other over-the-top...
