1980 Bristol Beaufighter with a 5.9-liter turbocharged Chrysler engine good for over 150mph.

The fender doors gave you access to the spare on one side and the battery on the other. The targa roof could be stored in the trunk.

While I've posted that the 2+2 model Ferraris are the least collectible models, the class 3-liter V-12 Ferraris are now worth fortunes.

But there is one that is probably the bargain Ferrari 250GT and that is the 1958 to 1961 250GT Pininfarina coupe. The PF was more luxury-oriented that other Ferraris of the era. For instance it introduced the luxury of a synchromesh gearbox. No power steering or disc brakes, of course: those enhancements were in the future. The price of a new one was still in the five digits -- actually the price of all the 250GTs was around the same at $12,000ish.

To me, cars like this are best presented with the average car in those days to show real context. It was a masterpiece at the time, given the field it was playing on.

This is not a good looking car. I much prefer its namesake. You know.. the one with wings.

The 1958 Chevrolet Corvette introduced the four-headlight face that would last until the 1963 Stingray. The base engine was up to 283 cubic inches and 230 horsepower.

The photos show both hard- and soft-tops.

I might give up my 993 for a vintage vette, very different car but there is something just kool about these old girls.

While the Ferrari 250GT Pininfarina coupe is probably the least valuable of the 1950s-60s Ferrari 3-liter cars, among the most valuable is the 250GT SWB. What a beauty! An 8 inch shorter wheelbase minimized weight and improved handling and the 3 liter V-12 offered more power. Only the uber-rare 250GTO is more valuable, but SWBs change hands only rarely and at a cost of millions. 168 were built from 1960-1963.

Here's an idea: Take a Volkswagen Kafer (Beetle) and use it as the basis for a racing car!

The pictured car, a 1956 Denzel 1500 International roadster, had a 1488 cc engine with an output of 84 hp. And very light weight.

Denzel did just that from 1953 to 1960, sourcing engines from both VW and Porsche. The company's total production was 65 cars.

The introduction of big-block V-8s in the Mustang was really something else.

Here's a 1968 Shelby GT500KR (King of the Road) convertible. The GT500 was powerful but the KR took it to the next level: a 428 block with 427 heads and upgraded internals. For "insurance purposes" it was rated at 335 hp. Actual output exceeded 400 hp with 440 ft-lbs of torque.

Auto manufacturer Auburn was in trouble on and off through the 1920s and 1930s. They decided to up the ante with a supercharged straight eight of 4.6 liters (280 cubic inches) giving 150 hp (up from 115 hp). Auburn models 851 also had a two-speed rear axle (one for acceleration, the other for cruising and top speed).

This is a 1935 851 Speedster.
