1957 Dual-Ghia Convertible

1957 dual ghia convertible 1

Rare, limited edition luxury sports car.
A collectors dream!

This 1957 Dual-Ghia is one of approximately 115 convertible examples produced in collaboration between Italian coachbuilder Ghia and Dual Motors Corporation of Detroit, Michigan. The car, chassis 146, was acquired by the current owner in 2015 and subsequently refurbished in 2018, reportedly by Whitehall Auto Restorations in Hopkinton, Massachusetts. It is powered by the famed 315ci D500 Hemi V8 engine paired with a two-speed PowerFlite automatic transmission, and it is finished in blue over cream leather. Additional features include a dark blue convertible top, 15″ wire wheels, power-assisted brakes and steering, front bucket seats, power windows, and an AM radio. The car was the runner-up for the 2019 AACA Zenith Award.

Pebble Beach Automotive Week

It is that time again for the mega car event called the Monterey Car Week & Concours D’elegance. It runs from August 12th thru the 22nd this year.

The event dates back over half a century, where only 200 of the best collector cars in the world roll onto the legendary 18th fairway of Pebble Beach Golf Links to be shown and compete. Only a handful of these will receive official recognition for style, technical merit and historical accuracy.

But, the Concours is only the final event in a packed week celebrating the classic automobile! All over Monterey County, classic cars take to streets, golf courses, parks and the world-renowned Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca, surrounding visitors with automobiles from today and yesteryear.

Gary’s 1961

I was 62 years old before I was able to find and purchase a C1 corvette that I had dreamed about since I was 10 years old. My neighbor had purchased a 1957 Corvette and gave me a ride. I was in love with the car from that time on. This picture is the only one I have with me in the picture. This car has won several awards from local shows and has been used in numerous photo occasions such as weddings and parades. It’s fun to drive and draws lots of attention even though, as most of you owners know, that’s not what I bought it for.


August Specials

2017 Z06 Z07

2017 black corvette z06 coupe 3lz z07 1

Black w/Jet Black Interior, 376/650hp, 8-Speed Paddle-Shift Automatic

If you were looking for the “ultimate” ZO6 back in ’17, the obvious choice was RPO ZO7! This rather pricey option got you Brembo ceramic brakes, Michelin PS Cup summer tires, and the ZO7 suspension. Adding this to the already extensive ZO6 Package you get a “track ready” Corvette! This stunning example has all that and more! Additional options include, 3LZ Premium Equipment Group, Black Suede Design Package, Carbon Fiber Package, and more!

Priced to sell: $89,900

2004 Jaguar XJR Sedan
Pristine condition throughout!

2004 jaguar xjr 1

Black w/Beige Interior, 4.2L/390hp Supercharged V8, 6-Speed Automatic

This absolutely beautiful example has been driven only 57k miles since new and has been very well cared for, as evidenced by a clean Carfax that shows regular service history over its lifetime.  It’s cosmetically stunning and mechanically sound!  This is a phenomenal driving car!  It’s surefooted and solid as a boulder at speed.  And it’s a lot of fun!  These XJR’s don’t come up for sale very often.  Don’t miss your opportunity!

Priced to sell: $26,900
