• Why Some Guys Always Make Money Selling Their Cars

    I spent a little time with Dave Alexander at Continental AutoSports in Hinsdale, and I asked him why some guys always seem to make money when they sell their cars. “When you are getting ready to buy a car you are, in some sense, also getting ready to sell it, and you...

  • UK Supercar Club Arrives In US

    Having your cake and eating it, too, has always been the stuff of fantasy, but is now being served up to a select clientele in London, Melbourne and New York. I had been invited to the party for the US launch of ECURIE25, the most successful fractional time-share for supercars in the...

  • Maserati GranTurismo S

    Cars with duel identities often come down wrong on one side or the other.  Not so the Maserati GranTurismo S or the newer MC. John Weinberger, owner of Contintental Autosports, loaned me one for a while and here’s my thoughts: In every way, this car leaves the old GT in the dust. ...

  • Driving The McLaren MP4-12C

      Friends in high places had given me the opportunity to drive the new McLaren MP4-12C.  I had seen it in the showroom but this was my first opportunity to have a go… Aimed squarely at the Ferrari Italia, McLaren MP4-12C occupies roughly the same place as the 458, but with a totally different...

  • Getting Your Ferrari Ready For The Season

      A little while back, I spent an hour with Sean Welch, fixed operations manager at Lake Forest Sports Cars, in Lake Bluff, Il. I had gone to talk about getting your car ready for the spring and we sort of morphed into the importance of your car’s maintenance history. “We want...

  • ICON Motors

          THE BEST SUV’S ON EARTH?   For 16 years, Jonathan Ward and his wife, Jamie, have claimed a business model driven by the design of a singular lunatic.  His vision, his words. Sandwiched between photo shoots with Car & Driver Magazine and Autoweek, Jonathon had temporarily handed me off...

  • Is Your Car Spying On You?

    Your insurance company is getting ready to make you a deal you may want no part of. The  same technology that gets you through toll booths (I-Pass-Illinois, FasTrak-California) is being rolled out as a passive way of monitoring your driving activity, in some cases letting your carrier adjust your premiums based on what...

  • Continental’s Annual Art & Literature Show

    Art, apparel, books and more, for and about Italian cars! There is a shortage of lira in the world, but not, it seems, in vintage sports cars .  Pick up the latest issue of Sports Car Market or the like, and the prices look insane (last month I wrote about vintage Maseratis...

  • Vintage Maseratis…Now’s The Time

    People ask me a lot, and my crystal ball is still running an older operating system, but here goes. Even if you’re not in the market for one, you probably realize that vintage 12 cylinder Ferraris are hot. If you are just starting to consider one as an investment, you may have...

  • Father And Son Talk Restoration Costs

    In many opinions, Custom Cars Unlimited is one of the best restoration shops in the US.  In business 42 years, their celeb list includes Frank Thomas, Bo Jackson, Ozzie Guillen, and plain old folks like me, as they had restored my first Ferrari in the late 80’s, a 62 250 GTE.    ...

  • Know Thine Enemy Through Social Media…

    DISCLAIMERS: 1ST-IF YOU ARE USING TRAPSTER, CHANGE YOUR PASSWORD! 2ND– TRAPSTER IS AMAZINGLY ADDICTIVE You see THE MAN and flash your lights to oncoming traffic, letting others know there’s a cop with a radar gun waiting ahead.  Countless times the friendly gesture has saved me a ticket and I’m always happy to return the...

  • The Barrington Concours 2012

    Like trimming the Christmas tree, it takes a while to go from simply putting it up to getting it right and The Barrington Concours is fast approaching being the best dressed tree on the block. “The Barrington Concours is headed back to being a public event starting next year”, says Patty Doud-Schmitz,...

  • Driving The Lamborghini Aventador

      You forget the rain and the cold when 4 wheel drive and 700 HP beckons! When I was 15, my friend and I took his dad’s car for a drive; stick shift and a couple of hundred horsepower.  No license, no common sense, BUT driving that car, I was immortal. Today,...
