  1. I understand classic car scheme only has 28 coupon a year...one coupon a day. If the car is driven in Malaysia, does it need a coupon for everyday? Or only coupon for day exiting Singapore and day coming back?
  2. What three motoring things would you like to achieve before you go? (that you have a reasonable chance of) For me it would have to be 1. Own a classic muscle car of some sort 2. Drive the Nurburgring 3. Own a Caterham / Ariel (or one of it's derivatives)
  3. Nobel prize winning author Ernest Hemingway's last car was a 1955 Chrysler New Yorker Convertible. Hemingway left the car on the island of Cuba before his suicide in 1961 and from then onwards, the vehicle has somehow disappeared from public view. Presumed to be lost, the car was found a couple of years back and now is the subject of an upcoming documentary about the car's history and ongoing restoration process. The New Yorker Convertible has been passed around between members of one family and there are plans to restore the car to its original condition. But, due to the United
  4. Losing a car to theft is one of the most aggravating thing that could happened to a car owner especially if that person has put his/her blood, sweat and tears into it. Stolen vehicles usually end up being stripped into parts or shipped out of the country totally and the chances of getting it back are rather low. In Brisbane, Australia; a rather strange incident happened when dock workers inspected a container that has been sitting for ten years. In it, they found a 1968 Chevrolet Corvette convertible. In 2002, the Corvette was reported stolen by its owner in Australia. After an
  5. Sometimes in life, when you are looking for something or someone, you end up finding something else. That is quite natural as I strongly believe it has happened to many people at a point of their life. It happened to an American man who was searching for his birth mother and unexpectedly ended up with a 1967 Chevrolet Camaro RS/SS that has been in the family for many years. Zach S from Virginia, United States; first saw the Camaro RS/SS in 2006 when he met his birth mother in Arizona after years of searching. During the meeting, both mother and son shared many stories and pictures.
  6. [extract] In the United States, Ford offers several reproduction body shells of their previous popular models. You could get either a 1965 or 1967 Mustang Convertible body shell through Ford Restoration Parts program and these body shells are officially licensed products. Due to the popularity of such products, Ford has included another model

    Steve McQueen

    Legendary Hollywood actor, Steve McQueen is a man who is genuinely passionate about cars and obviously he loves fast cars. Most would know or remember the Ford Mustang that he drove in the movie Bullitt and it is one of the best car chase scene ever in movie history. Even though the Mustang was a brilliant piece of machine, McQueen prefers something a little different. The car that you see here is a Ferrari 275 GTB4 and it was once owned by Steve McQueen himself. It was said that McQueen took delivery of the car in San Francisco while filming the movie Bullitt. The current owner o
  8. [extract] A couple of months ago, I wrote about a very rare Mercedes Benz 500 K Roadster being confiscated by authorities in Germany after the original owner
  9. In Singapore, finding an old classic car is something not that easy nor is it common due to the fact that our country is very small and there are not much of these cars left. But in big countries such as the United States, barn finds happen rather often and sometimes that find could be a gem. The vehicle you see in the pictures here is a 1961 C1 Chevrolet Corvette Roadster with 93423 miles (150,349 km) on the odometer and has been parked since 1968. The car was found by the guys at Barn Finds, a web based group who hunt for old vehicles and classic cars and publish them on their site
  10. When Dutch car collector, Frans van Haren, won an auction for a vintage 1937 Mercedes car, it was just like a dream come true. But it turned into a nightmare when it got confiscated by the local authorities in Germany where he brought it to have the car displayed at the recent Techno Classica Car Show in Essen, Germany. The car you see here is a rare (and obviously, precious) 1937 Mercedes 500 K Roadster (type W29); where only 392 were made in total including 29 units that were roadsters. Frans van Haren acquired the car in an auction last year in August. He paid an enormous amount
  11. [extract] Getting buried in a hole is one of the strangest things to happen to a car especially if it is a rare classic. The car you see in the picture above is a Ferrari Dino 246 GT. It was discovered in a yard of a house in Los Angeles, USA in early 1978. How the car ends up in this manner is still a big mystery to many till today. An example of a Ferrari Dino 246 GT Pictures of this car have been in circulation for many years but many do not know the real story behind it. In 1978, a group of children were playing in the yard of a house in Los Angeles. The yard was muddy a
  12. Vehicle barn finds are getting common nowadays. Usually it would be an old ordinary car, nothing special and sometimes it could be an old vintage that can fetch thousands of dollars after getting it restored. But this barn find is somewhat special as the car found was a rare 1952 Ferrari 212 Inter Ghia Cabriolet. A scale model of the car. The Ferrari 212 Inter was built from late 1950 to 1953 and only 79 units were ever produced. The 212 Inter came at the time when Ferrari was moving towards production made cars. The 212 Inter models were built by 8 different coachbuilders and o
  13. A few years ago, Brooklyn artist Jonathan Brand sold a 1969 Ford Mustang that he rebuilt with his father to pay for an engagement ring. In his latest work, entitled "One Piece at a Time," he has reconstructed that Mustang, piece by piece, at 1:1 scale, using nothing but paper. Brand mentioned that the American automobile has played a large part in his personal life and his art. His grandfather worked as a millwright at a Detroit car assembly line. His uncles and cousins are mechanics. And he, together with his father, has restored 3 vintage cars. One of those cars, a 1969 Mustang, took
  14. Every once in a while, we come across links to stories about how old and classic cars are found virtually brand new, hidden in a warehouse or storage facility somewhere. Here's one of them. Over at SpeedHunters.com, someone chanced upon a Toyota Corolla AE86 that has less than 50km on the odometer, and its seats are still wrapped in plastic. It is, as they called it, a time capsule. Apparently, this car is in Belgium, of all places. And the car is sparkling clean, as though it has just left the showroom. Well, basically it has, since the owner only drove it from the showroo
  15. [extract] This is piece of tuning history that I feel is quite interesting for classic Mercedes enthusiasts or those who wants to know a bit of Mercedes tuning over the years. Sometime last year Lorinser celebrated the
  16. At a recent classic car show in Japan a tuning company called Tec Art's, not to be confused with the Porsche tuning company Techart as it has that funny Japanese punctuation, had exhibited another one of those classic Japanese cars that have been tweaked by adding current automotive tech. This makes the a 20 or 30 year old classic run reliably on current technology for the ease of its owners. Tec Art's Eco Hatchi-Roku (86) is one of those type of modded cars but it has a twist. This old AE86 is an eco-mentalist's dream of a tree hugging classic car. According to the design brief, the car i
