1957 Dual Ghia Sports Car | Conceptcarz.com

1957 Dual Ghia Sports Car news, pictures, specifications, and information Convertible Dual Motors only existed for eight years, but in that time, the marque was able to combine the essence of Virgil Exner’s uniquely American design with Ghia’s hand built Italian coachwork. These flamboyant cars were based on a modified Dodge chassis with a 315 cubic-inch V8. Unfortunately, the cost to build a Dual Ghia exceeded the selling price, and less than 200 were built. Many were owned by celebrities such as Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin. In the early 1950’s, Chrysler designer Virgil Exner had created a series of striking ‘Firearrow’ concept cars crafted by Italian coachbuilder ...

Review: 1957 Mercedes-Benz 300sl Roadster | The Truth About Cars

Review: 1957 Mercedes-Benz 300SL Roadster Summer 2005. My plans for a Vintage Car Rally Vacation evaporate. Rebuilding a very poorly rebuilt engine vacuums funds allocated for the purpose out of my wallet. What started as an odd knock became a horror show. My fussy ex-pat Yorkshireman mechanic in Chilliwack, British Columbia, removed the head and found the forensic remains of a car-related massacre not seen since Pol Pot rode around in his ’73 Mercedes. Just when I had given up on my dreams of a vintage vacation, the phone rang with an offer to co-drive an event in what many have called the world’s first supercar: the Mercedes-Benz 300SL. I accepted the offer faster than Mr. Fangio could ...

Fiat 500 (1957)

Fiat 500 The Fiat 500 (the cinquecento from the Italian word for 500) is a car produced by the Fiat company of Italy between 1957 and 1975 (note, the Fiat 500 K alone was produced until 1977). Launched as the Nuova 500, it was marketed as a cheap and practical town car to combat high levels of congestion in Italian cities. Measuring only 2.97 m (9 ft 9 in) long, and originally powered by a tiny 479 cc two-cylinder, aircooled engine, the 500 redefined the term small car and is considered one of the first city cars. To meet the demands of the post-war market which called for cars of very low cost, the Fiat 500 was rear-engined on the pattern of the Volkswagen Beetle. Several car makers followed ...

High Performance Trucks — Toyota X-Runner Concept

TRD TACOMA X-RUNNER CONCEPT The Toyota Racing Development (TRD) X-Runner concept explores the boundaries of sport truck power and performance. The TRD X-Runner adds several newly designed and developed components and a carefully tuned chassis, taking the truck to new levels of performance and styling. Power has been increased dramatically by modifying and upgrading the standard 4.0-liter DOHC VVT-i V6 and adding a new TRD designed supercharger and intercooler package. The supercharger features an Eaton Roots-type supercharger with an integrated air-to-liquid intercooler. Performance is further enhanced by a fully functional hood scoop. TRD modified the internal engine components with new ...

ASIANOW — Asiaweek

The Asian Classics Now is the time to invest in a share of the region’s automobile history By Todd Crowell Hong Kong A WAVE OF NOSTALGIA swept over me when I saw the picture of a Toyota Sports 800 that a collectors’ club had sent me. I used to own one of those — a snarling little two-seater that, in truth, had lots more bark than bite. (Not that you needed a lot of power under the hood of your car when I lived in Japan in the late 1960s. The roads were simply not made for speed.) I still have fond memories of that Toyota, which I drove around the country on my honeymoon. Now, to my astonishment, I find it has achieved classic status, with a price tag to match. And, to think, ...

Toyota Mark X

Toyota Mark X Predecessor: Mark II A fter surviving for 36 years, the Mark II nameplate finally gave way to Mark X – this is the alphabetic letter X which stands for an unknown. Interestingly, the car is really entering an uncertain time. Mark II used to be a Japan-bounded sports sedan. Car enthusiasts liked to tune it with stiff suspensions and boost its turbocharger to deliver big power. But globalisation is crumpling the unique breed of Japanese cars. As Toyota is to start selling Lexus in its domestic market, Mark X will find its survival space threatened by Lexus GS and IS. In fact, the Mark X already overlaps with Lexus GS in many ways. Both cars and Toyota Crown actually share the ...

2011ToyotaTacoma Review By Mike Levine

Summary The Toyota Tacoma is the king of compact and midsize trucks, with about 40 percent share of the segment in the U.S. The Tacoma is available in three cab styles: regular cab, Access Cab and Double Cab. Regular and Access cabs come with 6-foot beds, while the Double Cab can be had with either a 5- or 6-foot bed. Much of the Tacoma’s appeal comes from its various special models and packages.

Included are progressive-rate front springs, Bilstein shocks, BFGoodrich Rugged Trail tires, 16-inch alloy wheels and TRD badging. The TRD Sport Package offers a monochromatic appearance, ...
