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:
A Ford GT40 That Never Saw A Race Track
New CarStories Podcast Available Every Tuesday
Of the seven Ford GT40 Mark IIIs built, only four were delivered with left
hand drive like this car. This rare street-legal example (serial #MK3 1105)
was originally owned by well-known Austrian conductor Herbert von Karajan,
who drove it sparingly—and never in the rain. The Mark III differed from
earlier versions in that it had round rather than oblong headlights, an
extended rear deck with room for luggage, a less rigid suspension and a
more comfortable interior. Powered by a 289-cubic-inch 306-horsepower Ford V8 engine
coupled to a ZF 5-speed manual transmission, the low-slung car can
accelerate from zero to 60 miles per hour in just 5.3 seconds. Top speed is
approximately 165 miles per hour. The GT40 model designation was derived,
in part, from its low height, which was a mere 40 inches from ground to

Burt Reynolds Edition Trans Am BAN3 at the DYNO
We did a complete tune on (Signed by Burt - Car #9) this BRE Trans Am. The
performed by Chad & Pat @ THE SHOP, in Lincoln, NE on a MustangDyno). This car has an LS7
engine, with upgraded cam, lifters, springs and rods, to get it to 625hp at
the crank, with similar torque. Unbelievable car to drive and feel the
power that it has. If you ever get a chance to go for a ride in one of
these cars or to purchase one, they are well worth the money and
investment. Keep i mind this is a one of a kind signed car designed by
Year One and Burt himself, and there will be only a limited production!
