Restored 1907 Cadillac One-Cylinder Is Still Kicking After A Long Life And Emotional Backstory

As car enthusiasts, we all have our dream cars. Some dream of a day when they’ll be able to sit behind the wheel of their very own track-capable Ferrari. While others opt for the emotional gratification that comes with an older model of car. In this case, the former owner of this luxurious Cadillac from over 100 years ago chose the latter of the two. While the car, now 114 years old, was certainly a challenge to restore, it now outshines even the best of its time in style and luxury. Of course, every classic car comes with an emotional background and this is no exception to that rule.

Big Oly Ford Bronco Sells For $1.87 Million

One of the most famous innovations of the great Parnelli Jones came behind the back of co-driver Bill Stroppe. Secretly sharing his design with Stroppe mechanic Dick Russell, the pair began building a Bronco that would go on to change Baja racing forever. Initially upset by the deception of his team sneaking around behind his back, Bill Stroppe quickly saw the extreme potential in Jones’ designs and jumped on board. This decision would lead them to victories in 1971, 1972, 1973, and 1974.

The machine affectionately labeled as ‘Big Oly’ became one of the most famous Broncos ever built for Baja racing. Its design began with a tubular chrome moly space frame and implemented aluminum and fiberglass bodywork for an incredible amount of weight savings. Under the hood, a Windsor 351-cid engine produces a whopping 390-horsepower that it pushes through a modified C6 B&M hydro transmission. Two 22-gallon fuel cells allowed the racer to drive longer with less fuel stops and built in thermos jugs kept the team hydrated through the grueling race.

Basically New 2018 Nissan GT-R NISMO

The 2015 Nissan GT-R NISMO made it around Germany’s proving ground track in just 7:08.679. This incredible feat happened due to the GT-R's nearly 600-horsepower engine and dual clutch transmission, a full NISMO tuned suspension, and a creative use of carbon fiber to reduce weight and create downforce. Since the model year that set the record lap, Nissan and NISMO have been working to further the design each year, improving handling and acceleration capabilities. This 2018 Nissan R35 GT-R NISMO is a prime example of the GT-R’s recent advancements.

Thousands Of Barn Find Bikes

Right off the bat, we see a whole lineup of Honda motorcycles from back when they absolutely blindsided Harley-Davidson in the 60s. Many of the bikes look absolutely amazing, other than being a little dirty from sitting in the barn for so long. But as Steve points out, at least one of them has well under 1,000 original miles on it, so that’s why they’re wonderfully preserved.
