60 Minutes Morley Safer takes the Countach for a test drive.

I saw this on Jalopnik and had to repost it here. Excellent 60 Minutes piece from 1987 about the best poster car of all, the Lamborghini Countach. Turn up your sound and watch a younger Valentino Balboni tearing down Italian roads.

1952 Muntz Jet Car

The name of this car is what grabbed me - Muntz Jet Car. Cool name. Beautiful car. The car got it's name from the man who initially fell in love with a Buick based coupe developed by Frank Kurtis. Earl Muntz liked the car so much he "brought the company", built 394 of them, and halted production when it proved uneconomical to carry on. This one is for sale here and has a great story because it has been customised and repowered with a Cadillac V8. Lovely looking motor too.

The Zero F**ks Given RX7 - Brilliant!

This is very cool. One 19 year olds idea of a bad ass hotrod. And one of the best introduction pieces ever. Nice work Matt Farah.

Spotted: Datsun 260Z

Saw this cool Datsun 260Z on the side of the road and had to check it out. Love the original dealer sticker and cool metal number plate surround. Interior was mint too. Imagine cruising your favourite twisty road in this. Nice!

Spotted: Fiat 124 Sport Spider

Saw this beautiful example of a 124 Spider recently. Wish I'd got more pics now. Perfect condition. Sounded great as it pulled away.
