We all know that you can’t have your cake and eat it, so if your craving is for an inexpensive classic spider, there’s work to be done to get there. In this specific case, there is a lot of work to be done: first of all you have to fill in a very long checklist… Read More Southern project: 1960 Triumph TR3 A
There is only one XJ13 built by Jaguar in 1965 in order to participate (and possibly win) in subsequent editions of the 24 Hours of Le Mans, but that never happened. It never happened for a number of reasons: the difficulty of developing the car, combined with the lack of interest of the top management… Read More The cat in the hat: 1965 Jaguar XJ13 Replica by RCR
The make and model of this project need no introduction: even those who are not enthusiastic about classic cars probably know this unmistakable profile. The spider version obviously has the peculiarity of the canvas roof, but our personal opinion is that the coupé profile is difficult to beat even by cars that are worth ten… Read More Aged Burgundy: 1962 Jaguar E-Type FHC
The name of this car designed at the European Ford factory probably won’t communicate much to American readers, but for European – and especially British – enthusiasts, the RS 1600 badge means a lot. In fact, this car was built from 1970 to 1974 in only 1139 specimens: so don’t be surprised not to see… Read More Cosworth power: 1973 Ford Escort RS 1600 MKI
There are few cars, among those ever built, beautiful even if neglected and rusty. This is precisely the case with the E-Type roadster. In addition to being a spider (technically the name given by Jaguar for this version is OTS or Open Two Seater), this car is a true icon of world motoring along with… Read More Carmen red: 1966 Jaguar E-Type 4.2 O.T.S.
What makes us love a classic car? Is it its lines, the sound of the engine, its economic value or even the stories it carries with it? Very often, more times than we admit to ourselves, it is the latter that attracts us most of all. This Aston Martin DB4, parked in a barn for… Read More A life: 1962 Aston Martin DB4 by Touring
We can say that there is no better way to start the year 2021 with a survivor, even though in this case it is a car. Car, we have said, but certainly not a trivial one: it is in fact an automotive icon of the twentieth century whose image has also been too inflated and… Read More The survivor: 1967 Jaguar E-Type 4.2 O.T.S.
All fans of classic cars like patina: if it develops on a black surface, it is even more fascinating. The surface we are talking about belongs to a Jaguar XK 140 model DHC: it is the more “civilized” spider version, less extreme than the OTS (the one with “low” doors, so to speak) but always… Read More Dark matter: 1955 Jaguar XK 140 DHC
As fans of classic cars we believe that any car, from the most beautiful and famous to the ugliest and least known, has the dignity of being published. Indeed, often the most “obscure” cars often have an interesting story behind them, often linked to the dream of one or two men. This brand, Gilbern, it… Read More The butcher’s car: 1963 Gilbern GT 1800
In spite of the image it has, this can be considered to all intents and purposes a muscle car. Indeed, if a Ford Mustang of the same period is considered a muscle car icon, let alone how the Tiger can be considered, it has the same eight-cylinder engine (but in this case 260 cubic inches),… Read More Green feline: 1965 Subeam Tiger
