1964 Datsun L320 pickup

This five-decade-old Datsun pickup is a rare sight. Most long ago succumbed to rust and wrecks, but this one looks fairly well preserved, all things considered.

1968 Chevrolet Corvair Monza coupe

The Corvair faithful are quick to call the Corvair the most underrated domestic sports car of all time. It offered lively handling when properly set up (including the proper air pressure in the rear tires), and it was totally unlike anything else being built by Detroit in the 1960s.

1987 March PC18 Indy racer

In the game of one-upmanship that is car collecting, what better way to show up the Joneses than taking your very own race car—like this 1987 March PC18 Indy car—around the local track on the weekend?
