For this #TourThursday, we give you the 1958 Ferrari 335 Sport Scaglietti Spyder pictured here at the 2017 Pebble Beach Tour d’Elegance. The car was anxiously waiting at the front of the starting line ready to drive! Three Ferrari 335 Sport Spyders with V12, 4-liter engines were built in 1957—and then Luigi Chinetti persuaded Enzo Ferrari to build one more. This Spyder (chassis 0764) was completed by Scaglietti at the end of 1958. It was first presented at the New York Auto Show and was soon nicknamed the “Super Testa Rossa.” Alan Connell purchased the car and raced it at Road America, Watkins Glen, Daytona and Nassau in 1959 and 1960. Thereafter it was owned, driven and enjoyed by several different collectors, and in 1990 it was notably lent to Phil Hill to drive in the Mille Miglia Storica. The current owner acquired the Spyder in 2013. See MoreSee Less

The answer to this week’s #WheelWednesday is the 1948 Delahaye 135 MS Chapron "Vedette" Cabriolet Le Dandy—a beautiful green machine! Congratulations Jesper Børre Mangelsen for being the first person to correctly identify this amazing car (and thank you Nelson Thorpe for not giving away the answer too early!) ✅🏎👍Photo: Kimball Studios See MoreSee Less

"Vedette" is not a model name, but the French word to indicate a star🌟, i.e. the Delahaye 135 Chapron that was the "vedette" on the Delahaye or Chapron stand. This particular car is a Cabriolet Le Dandy. ⭐️🌟⭐️🌟

It is unfortunate contemporary auto manufacturers have such a limited color spectrum. The seemingly endless parade of Metallic Silvers (and variations on that theme), equaled in number by the shadowing specter of Black and invisible White give little wonder to the incidence of depression, anger management psychosis and road rage that dominates America’s highways in 2018 when correlated against the fanciful, creative, upbeat, euphoric color palette that delighted enthusiasts of a time long lost.

Was that the original colour? Looks great but somehow wrong for 1948.

Awesome color…great shot!

Beautiful

On this #WheelWednesday, guess which car is steered by this unique clear wheel. Hint! This car was present on the show field in both 1982 and 2016. Photos: Kimball Studios and Glenn Mounger. See MoreSee Less

They ripped off the Simobile!

Aw, this is too easy. Here’s a photo of the car from the back (with the maker’s name photo-shopped out.) to keep the game going though….

Too easy. The shifter gives it away. I have seen this on another car as well and it was of the same marque.

After I saw the body I was going to guess Delahaye.

Chuck Simon does this look familiar?

The 2018 RetroAuto poster spotlights OSCA-Fratelli Maserati S.p.A., a marque celebrating the 70th anniversary of its first car. And the 2018 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance poster highlights the much-anticipated Motor Cars of the Raj class.
