Hey Luigi, you gotta stop driving that crummy old Ferrari — its gonna cost you an arm and a leg with each overpriced Ferrari oil change and don’t get me started on the cost of a basic valve service that is probably required every 4000 kilometers…whatever a kilometer is. A kilometer is probably just a really expensive mile.

Find this 1977 Ferrari 400 offered for $19,500 in San Rafael, CA via craigslist. Tip from Rock On!
Looking for a car that no one at your local Cars and Coffee will have? The Pontiac Le Mans was a obscure and slow selling GM A-body chassis. Today’s example has been given the restomod treatment on the inside and out. The malaise spec engine was swapped for a much more stout 69 GTO 400 […]
What happens when you take the design of the pre-war German built Opel Kadett and combine it with the capabilities of the Moscovskiy Zavod Malolitrazhnyh Avtomobiley (Moscow Factory for Making Small Cars) and the direction from Joseph Stalin himself…?

Maybe afternoon tea in blooming gardens with fresh scones and clotted cream? This vintage motor carriage wouldn’t look out of place in any of these locales. Find this 1937 […]
I am sucker when it comes to buying cars with matching accessory items. An E30 with an E30 based BBQ trailer is awesome, as is anything Volvo military with matching trailer, but a car with a matching vintage boat is just beyond cool. Find this 1962 Rambler 400 with boat on trailer offered for $3,500 […]
Welcome to the new and improved Daily Turismo, where we don’t feature cars with lazy-bones Chevy V8 swaps. In 2015, you’ll need a 3-rotor Wankel and reverse rotating V12 to make the cut…wait…whats that Mr FuelTruck? You’ve found a Ferrari 400 with a small block Chevy V8 for cheap? Forget what was previously said. Find […]
From 1957 through 1961 ACMA (Ateliers de construction de motocycles et d’automobiles) built a microcar for Piaggio SpA under the name Vespa 400.

It’s Friday afternoon, so un-tuck your shirt, let down your mullet and enjoy this world cheap V12 powered Italians. The Ferrari 400 was a European only 2+2 V12 powered Ferrari with a body by Pininfarina mounted on a tubular steel ladder type frame. The 400 has the dubious honor of being the first Ferrari with […]
