About Our Cover Cars
Want a Porsche 356 taken to the next level? An Emory Outlaw is a modified 356 that began life as a factory steel-bodied car in Germany. These cars start with a bare-metal, rotisserie restoration with the goal of improved handling, styling and drivability, frequently far beyond the performance specifications of even Porsche's competition cars from the era. The term '356 Outlaw' was a name given to The Emory's in the early 80's because of their race and rally inspired look. These cars start with a bare-metal, rotisserie restoration with the goal of improved handling, styling, and drivability. Body changes can include smoothing bumpers, adding louvers, and other period accents. Billet alloy wheels in a few styles and many finishes combined with performance tires round out the appearance package. Emory Motorsports also addresses performance.

Based on the Fiat 500, 600, and Multipla platforms the Jolly is a specialty vehicle converted by Ghia. Jollys were built from 1958 to 1966 during a renaissance for the rich and pampered as yacht tenders to run in-port errands...
1955 Chevy Suburban
Subtle can be awesome. Want proof? Look no further than Jon Byers' seductive 1955 Chevy Suburban. Some of the most eye-catching rides don't have flames, loud graphics, or bulging fenders.
1960 Ford Edsel Ranger
Daring to be different isn't much of a challenge for Bud W. The fringe does not scare him... he's quite at home in this mindset and his tricked out 1960 Edsel is rolling proof.
Edsels, by their nature, fly well under the radar. The 1960 Edsel is rare.
2015 Challenger SRT Hellcat
The Hellcat has set the performance world on fire. The car is 707 horsepower worth of insanity that Dodge had the audacity to deliver it with a full bumper-to-bumper warranty. The Hellcat is so stout it comes with two sets of keys so you can keep your underwear clean.
The owner bought this seductive 1966 Morgan on Christmas Day 2001 and used it for daily transportation for the next 10 years. He took an upgrade instead of replace philosophy as parts were needed and the result is a really fast car.
"It began with replacing the generator/regulator...

The Corvette is the tip of GM's technological spear. It the brand's top dog of performance and the 'Vette has seen its fair share of peaks and valleys over the years.

The sophisticated Bavarian features a 140-horsepower, 3.2-liter V8 fueled by twin Zenith carburetors.

1956 Ford F100
Old trucks are hot, and fat-fendered models of the 1940s and '50s make especially wicked street rods. Building one that stands out can be a challenge, but owner Paul K. certainly has a show-stopper in his mesmerizing 1956 Ford F100.
1964 Ferrari 250 GT Lusso Berlinetta

1970 Subaru 360 Sambar
These Three Amigos come from different continents and decidedly different eras, but their diminutive dimensions bring them together on equal footing.
1957 Buick Special Estate Wagon
The station wagon can thank the locomotive for its very being. In the 1920's the genre was created with the singular purpose of transporting people and their luggage to and from train stations. So adept at people moving, the station wagon survived the train's fall from grace.
1964 Ferrari 250 GT Lusso Berlinetta

These two vehicles took very different roads to our cover but we are glad they made the trip.
