Do you want to go long or short this De Tomaso? #QOTD 🤷🏻‍♂️

You probably know De Tomaso for the Pantera and Mangusta, but there was more the brand than these Italian styled muscle cars. The Longchamp was based on the brand’s 4-door model, the Deauville which shared underpinnings with the Maserati - then owned by De Tomaso. It was largely the same recipe - Italian style paired with an American V8, making it a tempting proposition. So are the Longchamp’s rarity and 80s design enough for you to add it to your portfolio? 😎

If you haven’t seen Matt Farah’s ‘One Take’ YouTube videos, he essentially takes an unedited joy ride in some seriously cool cars in the California canyons. It’s often with others people’s cars but today we’re turning the tables. So who wants to smoke the tires on his Fox Body Mustang selling on BaT? 😎

The poll went with the 991 but the opinions in the comments were more mixed. First on the 991, @911sc.gr said that 'the Gt3 engine in the 991 makes it more special. @horatiul said, 'It has the same engine, suspension and PDK as the 997 GTS, so it’s less special than the 991 as a driver’s car, which has the GT3 engine. I’d get the newer one over it, and I think I’d also prefer a manual 997 GTS instead.' On team pro 997, @ airusalimov said, 'I just adore the purity and soap bar aesthetics of the 997.' While we can go back and forth on all the iterations of the Speedster, we're just happy @Porsche has kept the model alive all these years 😎

For us it’s hard to say how it will actually compare to the 997 because details on the new 991 Speedster are limited. One key detail is that they are making 1,948 of them in honor of Porsche’s 70th birthday. While that’s a not a huge amount of cars, it’s significantly more the 365 produced for the previous generation. More importantly, only 100 were made for the US market. And as we all know when it comes to classics, rarity always plays a huge factor in current and future pricing. That’s why we’d probably stick with this one owner, 2500 mile that’s been pampered in a climate controlled garage since the day it was delivered. Plus, we love the fact it only came in two colors Pure Blue like this example or Grand Prix white (Paint to sample versions were made but those were limited to a few very special customers) 😎

How does this Speedster compare to the new one? #QOTD 🤷🏻‍♂️

Two weeks ago Porsche blew up the internet when it showcased a striking red version of their upcoming Speedster in Paris. Now that we’ve had time to wipe up the drool and let the gorgeous lines of that car sink in, which version do you think is better - this 997 or the new 991? Keeping in mind the previous 997 version will be the rarer, and possibly more collectable of the two 😎

If we had a to call a winner, it would have to be for the Diablo or maybe the Diablo GTR. As @richboyinc04 said, ‘these are up there , absolutely wicked looking and a badass car. Always been one of my favorites.’ Doesn’t mean there weren’t some other good suggestions. The Sesto Elemento, Countach and Miura showed up plenty in our question from the story 😎

They say be careful because the devil can take on many forms. And this one is quite alluring. Which perhaps is why it’s the most sinister. Unlike the Murcielago and Aventador which look more aggressive so, you approach with caution, the shape of Diablo 6.0 is smooth and refined. Meaning it can disarm you with its good looks before unleashing the hellish power of the 6.0 V-12 on you. This particular example was originally a factory car and used a demonstration car for Lamborghini’s most important clients before being sold a French collector in 2003. Who amazingly managed to resist its charms and his deepest urges to drive the car. The car was recently serviced in May of 2018 and is now ready to get back on the road to be either worshiped or feared. The choice is up to the new owner and what he believes 😎

What’s the most wicked Lamborghini to leave the gates of Sant’Agata? #QOTD 🤷🏻‍♂️

With cars named after devils and bats, it’s not surprising that Lamborghini has somewhat of an evil connotation. But which bull is the most villainous of them all? 😎

We're just going to let you do the talking on this one as the message was more nuanced. @mbcgarage said, 'The pinnacle ‘find’ of all types is a survivor. This, IMO, doesn’t require hype, or social media to project it into the spotlight. A survivor retains original paint, body panels, interior, drivetrain components and can even be seen to have OEM plating, rubber items, maybe even brakes/brake hoses and other seldom seen wear items. These are educational examples that should help rewrite the restoration manuals. Barn finds, contrarily, often were put away in less than desirable locations with deplorable conditions. We as a hobby should get terms correct. As a final note - being a collector of Corvettes and muscle cars, I will pay a premium for a car that has never been shown at the National level before. ‘Finds’ of all types bring high value due to this point. I’m sure others will agree.' @williamejack said, 'One person’s junk is another person’s treasure, as the saying goes. I was lucky enough in my twenties to drive two 356’s. They were great fun to drive but when the motors required rebuild one would just go by another 356 due to the excessive cost of a rebuild. Keep in mind that a clean 356 could be bought for a few thousand dollars US.' @azwildcat4jc added, 'if the prices turn restored version and a restored looking like this are so close...the choice is easy in my book: Get the already restored version. I would definitely have issues buying a “patinaed” version that would set me back even more money to restore after I pay a price similar to an already restored version. If the parts easily seen look like that, imagine what the more important unseen parts look like. 😳'😎 _____________________________________________

This is a question we really struggle with. We love barnfinds. There’s something about the personality that a car develops in decay that you just can’t replicate. BUT - if you’re just going to restore it anyway, then why both paying up for something thats going to get erased. So that’s why we sort of have two answers to this question. If you’re going to buy this Speedster to just restore it, than we don’t think it’s worth much more than the estimate given. BUT - if you want to preserve the patina created over how ever many decades it stayed dormant and just get it running as is, well then then by all means, spend away. As you’re buying something that really can’t be reproduced 😎

Try for a minute to ignore how cool these cars look in pictures. The barnfind craze of late has resulted in these rusted (ahem patinaed) cars to sell for well above their estimates and occasionally close to restored counterparts. So if it’s going to be restored anyway, are barn finds really worth it? 😎

A pretty resounding 'yes' with about 90% of you saying cars can be part of your family. As @the_colorful_spaniard noted, 'I believe they can. Look at the countless cars that have been passed down from generation to generation. I believe they become a symbol of representation of you, your family, what you're about, maybe the time, love and effort to maintain or restore and in a sense, all that you cherish. Memories are created, adventures conquered, the good and the bad. Yes, I do believe some cars do become a member of the family.' @azwildcat4jc added, 'I think that certain cars can capture a please in the mind and heart of the members of the same family. My passion for the Mercedes Benz W126 Chassis started by the one my grandfather has driven for as long as I can remember! He could have always upgraded, but he always said they did not make the new ones (I can confirm newer Mercedes do not live up to the reputation - 3 E-Classes worth of experience on this end) like they did in that chassis. It hasn’t let me to desire to purchase a car like his for myself one day. In a sense, the W126 Chassis (more specifically the 300SDL) has become a passion for two generations within my family. I would not go so far as to consider it a member of the family, but cars can become a tradition within a family!' 😎
