1958 Edsel Pacer
Here's a very uncommon '58 Edsel Pacer in great original condition! This 2
door/ hardtop comes with the original E-400 engine which is a 361ci V8 with
303hp and 400lb/ft of torque! The transmission is the Teletouch automatic
which is operated by push buttons on the steering column! The car is also
equipped with power steering and power brakes. The interior is all
original except for the brand new carpet kit. It also has Edsel thick
rubber floor mats, a working AM radio, a floating speedometer that rotates
with the speed, and the whole dashboard and heater controls are just really
neat! Everything still works on this car! The floors and trunk are
incredibly solid, and it still maintains the original Snow White and Ice
Green two-tone paint scheme! The chrome and glass are still in nice
condition, its has wide white tires and original full cover hub caps, and
the car runs and drives excellent!
vintage: NSU RO 80 | drive it!
It was Europe's Car of the Year when it was introduced, and a flop with car
buyers. But in many respects, the innovative NSU Ro-80 was years ahead of
its time.When NSU, traditionally a maker of small cars, introduced the
Ro-80 in 1967, the company hoped to establish itself in the market for
up-scale mid-sized cars. The Ro-80 was powered by a 1-liter rotary engine
that produced 115 hp. It had front-wheel drive, four-wheel independent
suspension, disc-brakes on all four wheels, and a clean and distinctive
aerodynamic shape. Unfortunately, the rotary engine initially had major
reliability problems and the car was never a success. Even so, its timeless
design and many innovations make it a true milestone in automotive history.
The Car's The Star 'Mini' (part one)
Part one of 'The Car's The Star' which was the Top Gear spin off TV show
(written & presented by Quentin Willson) that featured the great British
Mini in this particular episode which was first shown on BBC2 in 1997.
Austin Allegro: The Car's The Star Part Two
Part two of Quentin Willson's look at the Allegro. Apologies for the poor
quality 3/4 of the way through but this is due to a damaged tape. The
silence mid way through is due to an ABBA song on the soundtrack that upset
the copyright owner and it was blocked so I had to edit it out and upload
it again. Quentin only talks about colours and trim in this section.
