Pretty much everyone has dreamed of owning a Chevy Corvette. It’s America’s sports car, an icon of unbridled freedom with a distinct, wholesome apple pie flavoring. While there are quite a few ‘Vettes on the market, not all of them boast the kinds of credentials you’d get with this 1965 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible. This C2 has won some shows, thanks to a frame-off, nut-and-bolt restoration where the chassis was powder coated. You could lay on your back, or better yet put this car on a lift and just stare in awe at the underside, because it’s beautiful.
Old military trucks are a lot of fun, especially something like this 1963 Volvo L3314 Laplander Camper. It’s been converted into a camper which can get to places you might not even reach using some trucks. That means not having to sleep in some rooftop tent and use a tiny camp stove while enjoying the beauty of a super remote wilderness area.
Some modern cars are so unique they’ll make everyone stand up and notice. Just a glimpse of this 2016 McLaren 675LT is enough to pique the interest of any enthusiast. After all, the supercar just looks fast, even when it’s parked. Fluid lines, a shocking Napier Green exterior, and those flashes of carbon fiber are enough to let everyone know this is no ordinary vehicle. What’s more, this McLaren is on the market, so it could be yours.
Everyone dreams of owning a Toyota FJ40 Land Cruiser. However, finding one in even remotely good condition might sometimes be pretty tricky. If you’re looking for a turn-key solution which won’t fail you in the middle of nowhere during a rugged backcountry adventure, this 1980 Toyota FJCO FJ40 Sport could be the perfect fit. It’s being sold right now through Vintage Cruisers.
To commemorate the eight team championships claimed by the C6.R during the American Le Mans Series (ALMS) over its 10-year span, GM created a limited-edition GT1 package for the Chevy Corvette. Even more appropriate, the Corvette GT1 package was unveiled at Sebring International Raceway. Republic Auctions is pleased to offer one this rare 2009 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 3LZ GT1 Coupe with just 28 actual miles on the clock. Only 125 of these special-edition Corvettes were produced total and only 17 were black Z06 editions like this example. This race-inspired limited-edition Vette is due to cross the auction stage on the weekend of November 22nd and 23rd, 2019 in Dallas, Texas.
Talk to any car lover, and the mention of a Hemi 'Cuda is usually enough to get any gearhead's oil racing! The reason is that Hemi 'Cudas are both extremely rare and very expensive, but if you're looking for a more budget-friendly way to get one of these mean Mopars parked in your driveway, then check out this 1970 Plymouth Hemi 'Cuda Tribute being auctioned off through GAA Classic Cars.
If you’re on the hunt for a classic American muscle car fresh off a rotisserie restoration, this 1972 Dodge Challenger Rallye should be of interest. It has accumulated few than 1,000 miles since it was restored, ensuring everything looks excellent. Whether you’re cruising through town or attend a local car meet, this Mopar is sure to impress.
While your initial reaction to the thought of chopping up a classic 1969 Porsche 911 might be horror or disgust, if the end product is this 1969 Porsche 911 Baja it’s probably more like wonder and glee. Seeing a 911 modified to go fast off the road is always a wonderful thing, and this one from Smash Customs looks especially capable.
Shortly after Ford launched the 2019 Ford Mustang Bullitt, Steeda announced plans for a tuned version of this car to pay homage to Steve McQueen: the limited-production Steve McQueen Edition.

You'll find a lot of custom trucks on these pages, but this professionally built 1973 Chevrolet K5 Blazer is about as nice as they come. Streetside Classics just took in an amazingly custom K5 Blazer that is ready for anything from beach cruises to trail crawls. Sadly, the high quality of this build almost guarantees this truck will ever go off-roading, but if it does, there will be very little that can stop it.
