1963 Ferrari 250 GT Lusso - Adam Carolla
See The World's Greatest Sports Coupes on display at the Petersen Automotive Museum http://bit.ly/QdoOUy A road-going version of the 250 GT Short Wheel Base (SWB), the Berlinetta Lusso shared the look and design of its competition counterpart while adding a level of luxury desired by Ferrari clientele. The V12 engine was pushed forward to allow more room for its passengers and the interior was decked out with thick carpets, soft leather and sound insulation. Designed by Pininfarina and built by Scaglietti, the doors, hood and trunk were aluminum while the rest of the body was constructed out of steel. Sharing many features with the GT SWB, including the wheelbase, disc brakes, suspension and Boranni wheels, the Berlinetta was sometimes entered in racing events when owners could not acquire the limited production 250 GTO. Introduced at the Paris Auto Show in 1962, the Berlinetta Lusso was a limited production car and only 355 units were built between 1962 and 1964





1991 Acura NSX - Angus McKenzie
See The World's Greatest Sports Coupes on display at the Petersen Automotive Museum http://bit.ly/QdoOUy The exotic mid-engine NSX was Honda's leading street performance vehicle and was equipped with a high-revving 270 horsepower V-6 engine. Track-tested by legendary Formula One champion Ayrton Senna, the Acura NSX was intended to offer Ferrari performance in a lower priced package. Innovative in both design and construction, the NSX was the first production car to feature an aluminum monocoque chassis that also made use of advanced materials (such as titanium), which resulted in a low curb weight. The NSX was first sold in the U.S. in 1991 and was instantly praised for its combination of performance and practicality. Production of the first series model ended in 2005 although production of a second-generation version is planned for model year 2015.





The Petersen Automotive Museum Takes Their Bugatti EB 110 for a Spin
Despite popular belief that cars in Museums never get driven, the Petersen Automotive Museum exercises many of the vehicles in its collection on a regular basis. Starting vehicles and taking them for even a short drive keeps seals and gaskets from drying out and leaking, keeps the mechanical parts of the vehicle clean and lubricated, and can actually extend the life of the car. Join us as we take our Bugatti EB 110 for a spin! If you would like to see this EB 110 and other exotics from our collection, come to The Americana At Brand in Glendale, California this Sunday, October 11 for a Supercar show. The world's fastest production cars will be presented in this once in a lifetime display! For more show information, go to: http://petersen.org/default.cfm?DocID=902&CalendarID=712

Trans Am Paddock '66-'72 Sights & Sounds
Happy July 4th! If you have speakers plugged into your computer, turn it up. Hopefully you have a subwoofer, too! This footage is me walking through Vic Edelbrock's collection of vintage Trans-Am racecars as they're being prepared for the Group 7A races and enjoying the sights and sounds... The Trans-Am Series is an automobile racing series which was created in 1966 by Sports Car Club of America (SCCA). This was the proving ground for all American manufacturers to compete with race-modified production cars. It ran until 1972 when at the height of Richard Nixon's incompetence dealing with OPEC, we had a gas shortage which was compounded by an embargo levied against us. Syria, Egypt and Tunisia didn't really like Nixon re-feuling their arch-enemy, Israel. Rather than address the shortage, the auto industry was heavily regulated to curb consumption. Further restrictions placed on the oil industry by an other rocket surgeon, Jimmy Carter, left us unable to further develop our own oil supplies which cemented these changes to the auto industry. These events changed muscle cars as we knew them into complete turds for over a decade while US auto makers struggled with the regulations and re-learned how to produce decent cars again... but for the "pony cars", it was the beginning of the end. The oil embargo of 1973 changed the shape of not only the auto industry, but all forms of auto racing to follow. You used to be able to afford these cars. I remember when... back when I was in high school... But it's 2010 now. This race celebrates all the classic cars you've dreamed of owning or being seen in. These things auction in the 6+ figures now (because of their race history). Enjoy this parade of '60's and early '70's model Ford Mustangs, Chevrolet Camaros, Plymouth Barracudas, Mercury Cougars, AMC Javelins, Pontiac Firebirds, and Dodge Challengers. This event required that they be in their original race condition in order to run with the Group 7A cars, so the contest to follow is all about how much compression these 40+ year old cars have left, and who's driving it. These beauties have been meticulously preserved by the best collectors, engineers and mechanics in the industry. I hope you guys can appreciate it because this is off my normal subject material. I just wanted to change things up and post something American on Independence day. This one's for the Veterans.
