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.

The Monterey Car Week is where auto enthusiasts gather each year to not only watch the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, but also get immersed in everything automotive.

The much-anticipated auto event is packed with interesting activities that include reunions, expos, auctions, car shows, and of course, the introduction of automakers’ latest machines and prototypes.

Here are some of the must-see introductions:

Ken Block Audi S1 E-Tron Quattro Hoonitron draws inspiration from
the 1985 Sport Quattro S1.

Bentley is set to unveil the Mulliner Batur W12 grand tourer.

Cadillac Celestiq, a show-stopping flagship concept.

DeLorean Alpha5, inspired by the iconic DMC-12.

Lamborghini Huracan Sterrato concept, a rally-focused off-road supercar.

Lucid Air Stealth Edition, BlackVia Maxim, an all-electric sedan
with a new Stealth Look.

SSC Tuatara Striker, one of the fastest production cars in the world,
with a top speed of 282.9 mph.

Hennessey Venom F5 Roadster with 1,817 horsepower
and top out at 300 mph.

Meyers Manx 2.0, Green, based on the nostalgic dune buggy.

If you are at this year’s Monterey Car Week, keep an eye out for Mike!

I bought the Vette 6 years ago. It sat in a front yard in riverside ca since 1974. It is glen green but the paint booth lights make the color look different. Every nut and bolt is being restored and I hope to be driving it next year.

some random thoughts

We never really grow up, some of us just learn how to act in public.

The fact that some geniuses were laughed at does not imply that all who are laughed at are geniuses. They laughed at Columbus, they laughed at Fulton, and they laughed at the Wright Brothers. But they also laughed at Bozo the Clown.

Behind every successful man is a surprised mother-in-law.
