1986 Chevrolet C10

Back when Chevrolet was building the Celebrity Eurosport, pickups like this were just as common, but look at which one people are collecting and playing with now. It’s like a wide muscle car for the polyamorous.

1956 MG MGA 1500 Roadster

Regular Brit sports cars never caught my eye, but there’s no denial the MG has curves galore to make you forget about the Jaguar. Driving one with a 1.5-liter four may not have the same effect, however.

1974½ MG MGB

If you didn’t know MG made running changes mid-year 1974, you’re not alone. Apparently, for U.S.-spec models, chrome bumpers with rubber bumper guards were replaced with a steel-reinforced black rubber bumper.

1953 GMC 150 5-Window Pickup

Apparently, extra windows were an option on Chevy and GMC trucks from the era. Extra visibility is always a good thing, wouldn’t you say? We know extra windows mean extra dollars for VW Transporters, but we don’t know if this is true for old GMCs.

1977 AMC Hornet

If you buy this American Motors product, please film yourself saying, “We’re 106 miles to Kenosha. We’ve got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it’s dark and we’re wearing sunglasses … Hit it.” We’ll be your manager and make you famous.

1941 Plymouth PT-125

This Mountain Orange and Black pickup won first place at a Plymouth Owners Club show, so you know it’s a prime piece of working-class machinery. Plus, it’s easy to forget that Plymouth built trucks too. A nice specimen indeed!

1962 Chevrolet Corvair 95 Corvan

Imagine if OJ was chased around LA in one of these. But that didn’t happen, so it’s been relegated to more of a footnote among 1960s Chevrolets. This commercial van version of the Corvair has tons of style thanks to the paint and mags.

1972 Chevrolet Suburban

Don’t quote me, but I believe the Suburban may be the longest-surviving nameplate in America, if not the world. As the big, bad wagon among Chevrolet’s truck line, hot-rodding one with a late-model LT1 rechristens this as a “suburban assault vehicle.”

1973 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray

The 1973, with the ducktail rear and the soft nose, was Zora Arkus-Duntov’s favorite. Alas, power was down since 1971 and the LT1 was gone, but that doesn’t mean a small-block four-speed Vette is anything to sneeze at.

2013 BMW M5

This is the M5 that went from a V10 to a twin-turbo V8 — interesting, considering the M5 was a straight-six for years. Considering the formula hasn’t changed for 12 years now, maybe it’s time to snap this up before BMW ruins the M5’s heritage with EVs.
