The 1967 Chevrolet Impala | Chevrolet vehicles
The 1967 Chevrolet Impala

Some cite Oldsmobile's 1949 Rocket 88 as America's first 'Muscle Car,' others point to the 1955 Chrysler C-300, or even the 1957 Rambler Rebel, the first smaller-than-full-size entry with serious V8 power. By the early 1960s, virtually every United States maker was touting big V8s in their big cars. Then came Pontiac's mid-size 1964 GTO, followed by Chevy's 1965 SS 396 Chevelle and a slew of others, and high-performance full-size cars were fading away by 1967.

The 1989 Lamborghini Countach

Countach, a name originated from the Piedmontese dialect as an expression of awe (usually reserved for seeing an attractive woman) was aptly applied to this Bertone-designed supercar. When it was introduced at the 1971 Geneva Motor Show, it created quite the stir. With the fundamental design over 40 years old, it still strikes a strong emotional chord with many who see it today.

The 1960 Valiant

In the late 1950s, an increasing invasion of small imported cars forced the Big Three to take a serious stab at a 'compact' car. Ford went the conservative route with the Falcon, while Chevrolet created the controversial rear-engined Corvair. Chrysler landed somewhere in the middle with the Valiant—traditional in driveline layout, but with innovative engineering. To emphasize that it was truly an all-new car, Valiant was initially a separate brand under the Chrysler umbrella.

2014 Pebble Beach Concours Best of Show | Ferrari vehicles
2014 Pebble Beach Concours Best of Show

The Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance awarded Best of Show honors to a 1954 Ferrari 375 MM Scaglietti Coupe owned by Jon Shirley of Medina, WA. This was the first time in the event's 65-year history that this honor has been bestowed upon a Ferrari and the first time since 1968 a post-war car has taken top honors.

The car was originally owned by film director Roberto Rossellini and began its life as a Pininfarina-bodied competition Spyder. After it was involved in an accident, the chassis was sent to Carrozzeria Scaglietti in Modena to receive a replacement body.

The car's next care-taker was Mario Savona of Palermo, followed by Charles Robert of Paris. The current owner had the car restored in 1995, after being found in an underground garage in a Paris suburb.
