    Oof.  Fiat sold less cars than McLaren in the US last year!  So if you see any Fiats, start taking photos, they are exotic!


    in contrast to those Toyota numbers, I would have thought Lexus would have been up much higher..besides you can probably get a Lexus now for Toyota money

    This thread needed a bump.  The below is not a siting but I figure it is worthy especially after the recent drought:"

    The ultimate roadgoing naturally aspirated V8 Ferrari, the 458 Speciale had more power, better aero, lighter weight and more exclusivity than the standard car.  This one looks amazing in Blu Tour de France over Charcoal with Grigio Corsa livery stripes, Alcantara and Tessuto cloth sport seats, blue contrasting stitching and seat belts, titanium finish wheels, heavy doses of carbon fiber and more.  Only 9,760 miles from new, $558,900.

  • Nice post, @lousubcap. Just upping the ante on a tried and tested model. Have admired the 458s, but have never been in one.

    @lousubcap my favorite thing about Ferraris?  They make my lovely 911s seem like a bargain.

    That is a stunning car and probably an absolute joy to drive.  Just the sounds give goosebumps.

    A friend of mine recently paid over $100k for a 57 Nomad wagon that was souped up and beautifully restored.  Still, I don't get it.  Can someone explain it to me?  I get the Ferraris, Corvettes, etc, but I'm struggling to understand the station wagon.

    The Nomad was a high end trim package back in the day. The Nomad and your typical Bel Air shared very little of the same body parts. It was much more custom. Making it much more expensive. I believe it was the second most expensive car Chevrolet made at the time behind the Corvette. The Nomad Bel Air was considered an overall failure in sales. Making them more rare and collectable today.

    And only two door. Rare for a “wagon”. I’d happily put my wife in a resto-mod Nomad versus a minivan lol

    A lot of it is personal nostalgia. Someone can be attached to a vehicle that their parents/grandparents or aunts and uncles had growing up. I remember rolling up to the golf course with my grandmother in her 68 Skylark and hunting with my Grandfather in an old square body GMC. My dad always talks about how badass the station wagons were back in the day. Big Blocks galore. 

    The random stuff you see rolling through a Mecum auction is crazy. 

    A lot of folks prefer the older stuff because they have the capability to work on the car. Good luck trying to work on a new sports car yourself these days.

  • Parents’ neighbour owns a number of cool cars, including a ‘55 Nomad in red with a blower popping out of the hood. Beautiful ride. I rarely see it, but will snap a pic for the thread if I can get the opportunity.

    They time that car 0-60 with a calendar.

    That may be, but considering they sold 16 Abarth/Fiat500 in 2023, 340 in 2022, and 51 in 2021 this special edition is rarer than hen’s teeth.

    Ferrari sold more SF90s in 2022 (690) than those 3 years combined.
