  • “Last American Convertible”
  • 8.2 Liter V8 Engine
  • TH425 Transmission

Cadillac had long established itself as one of the world’s finest automobiles. Joining the Cadillac Club in the 70’s was an expression of wealth and achievement. The 1976 Cadillac Eldorado is best known as “the Last American Convertible,” seeing that many believed there would never be another American Convertible built. Because of this, these ’76 convertibles were considered a collector’s item instantly, and prices for the vehicle nearly tripled its suggested retail price of just over $11,000. Only a few styling changes were made from the ’75 to the ’76 Eldorado. The '75 cars featured a Cadillac crest in the center of each light, while the '76 models are unadorned. Also, the Cadillac script on the front of the hood was incorporated into the grille header in 1975, and was a separate part for 1976, mounted above the grille header on the painted portion of the hood. One of the only thing that substantially sets the two models apart was the four wheel disc brakes on the ’76 model.

Our Eldorado dons a gorgeous Firethorn Metallica paint, and has been kept in excellent condition throughout the years.

1968 Lamborghini IsleroPrice:$370,000Mileage:21,783Engine:3,929 cc (239.8 cu in) 60° V12Transmission:Five-speed, reverse manual all-synchromeshExterior:Sophistograu B90Interior:6273

History on the 1968 Lamborghini Islero

Vehicle Highlights:  

  • Under 22,000 original documented miles
  • Rotisserie restoration done by professional craftsmen at Black Horse Garage with documented photos
  • Rare factory options
  • Boar leather interior with original shift knob and steering wheel
  • Interior Color: Tobacco Boar Hide

The 1968 Lamborghini Islero was the replacement for the 400 GT and featured Lamborghini’s V12 Engine. The Islero was named after a Miura bull that struck the matador Manuel Rodriguez, that’s one interesting way to get a name for sure. The Islero’s improved power allowed for 320 brake horsepower powered by a 4.0L V12 engine that propelled the car to a top speed of 155MPH. With only 225 Islero’s being produced it accounts for the exceptional uniqueness and rareness of the vehicle. The Islero is a must have vehicle to add to your collection.  

As you flick your garage light on you immediately notice the beautiful Sophistograu B90 paint that sparkles as the light hits it. As your hand reaches for the door handle you are struck by the exquisite bright work. With confidence and a smile from ear to ear you open the door and then it hits you. An aroma so fierce it makes you want to jump into the car and roll up all the windows to not let the smell slip away. The interior is such an experience. It was re-done with true boar leather and as you examine the seats you will notice every tiny pour. As you run your fingers across the passenger seat you are struck by the soft and supple leather. As your gaze shifts to the steering wheel you immediately take your thumb and slowly wipe the Lamborghini badge. The steering wheel beckons your fingers to be wrapped around it. As you squeeze tightly with both hands your eye catches the beautiful white lines in each gauge. You take the keys out of your pocket ever so gracefully and put it into the ignition. Slowly turning it and hearing every individual click. As the Islero roars to life and your put your left foot onto the clutch pedal and shift into first gear you stare into the rearview mirror and notice your garage quickly disappearing.  

This particular Lamborghini Islero had an extensive and interesting history. Originally shipped to John Montague in Canada, purchased through Lotus Dealership in Vancouver. John owned it up to 1973 when it was then sold to Martin Thomas from England as payment for a business debt. Thomas sold the car in Monaco with 16,000 miles on the odometer and a full providence history included to Alan Watkins and he brought it to the United States. Watkins showed the car in the 2003 and 2007 in Concorso at Pebble Beach. Featured in Popular Mechanics magazine they stated it was one of the best and well-maintained Islero’s ever kept. It stacks up favorably compared to the competition in 1968. The Islero produced more horsepower, top speed, lb-feet of torque and weighs less than a Ferrari 365 GTC. Similarly, it beats the 1968 Maserati Ghibli in top speed and weight. It rivals the Ferrari Daytona in horse power, top speed, engine displacement, torque, weight and a 0-60 time.   This Islero is a truly unique car with a highly coveted history. You will not want to miss this opportunity!

History on the 1987 Buick Regal Grand National

Interior Color: Black

In 1982, Buick introduced the Grand National to celebrate their wins of the Winston Manufacturers Cup and what began as a limited run of 100 cars to celebrate their victories became a mainstay of the Buick brand through the 1980s. Something about the Grand National captured the essence of American automotive culture throughout the 1980s.

In 1987 when this Grand National was produced, Buick had created a swan song for the Buick Muscle Car, a working mans supercar, with huge amounts of usable torque and a 14 second quarter mile time right off the dealership lot. Driving this car is a nostalgic experience and it brings the driver back to a simpler time of cars, when passion and competition lead automotive design not safety features and fuel economy.

This particular 1987 Buick Grand National has been well maintained and cared for by a committed owner. It has been tastefully upgraded , which includes a fiberglass hood, the original also comes with the car, and a new ECU chip. This car came equipped with the “G80” option for a limited slip differential.

All mechanicals have been gone through by Black Horse Garage. The car has a recent engine rebuild including a new piston rings, new camshaft bearings, new valve seals, all new engine gaskets, water pump,rear main seal, The crankshaft was also sent out to be redone. All of the wiring has been gone though to make sure everything's in working order.

The brakes were completely redone and shocks installed along with all new BF Goodrich comp T/A tires. The car also has a new serpentine belt and ignition coil pack. This car is ready to add to your collection and enjoy today!

The Turbo 3.8L V6 pulls hard and this car is fantastically fun to drive. The all black appearance of this Grand National gives it an aggressive look that is sure to turn heads anywhere you bring this car. Values of these Grand Nationals have been increasingly steadily in the past several years.

This is your opportunity to own a very nice Grand National with documented professional restoration work as well as a copy of the original build sheet!

History on the 1990 Ferrari 348 TS Targa

Vehicle Highlights:

  • 11,200 Miles
  • Impeccable Service Records
  • Flawless Cosmetic Condition
  • Interior Color: Tan

Ferrari introduced the 348 in 1989 as a long-awaited successor to the 308/328 series, which has been in production since 1976. A dramatic departure from its predecessor, the 348 took styling cues from the Testarossa, with its side-mounted radiators and strakes, while also having a longitudinally mounted engine with a transverse gearbox. This mid-engine arrangement mimicked the layout of Ferrari’s F1 cars of that time which also happened to be one of the most winningest teams of that era as well. The 3.4-liter four-cam V-8 made 300hp and propelled the car to 60mph in 5.6 seconds on the way to a top speed of 171mph.

This Ferrari 348 has been meticulously maintained since it left the dealership back in 1990, and since then has only put 11,200 miles on the odometer. The air conditioning in the car blows cool air even on the hottest of days. The vent on the hood of the car was replaced in 2014 as well, and the entire front black lip was resprayed and the engine cover insulation was replaced as well. Accompanying the car is a full leather Ferrari toolset original with the car, as well as an original Ferrari owner’s manual, and service manual.

1955 MG TFPrice:$39,500Mileage:30,722Engine:1500ccTransmission:ManualExterior:BlackInterior:XPEG1241

The MG T-series was a line of vehicles produced by MG from 1936-1955 that featured a range of open two-seater sports cars. Following the production of the MG TA through MG TD, the MG TF was the final car of the series, launching in 1953. The TF has been nicknamed ‘the last of the square riggers’ by many, as most British car manufacturers had moved on to producing more modern and streamlined vehicle by the mid-1950s. This model has a few mechanical alterations from the previous TD, retaining its predecessor’s body center section, but implementing a changed front end with a shortened, sloping, radiator grille, headlamps faired into the wings, and an improved interior with separately adjustable seats. The original TF had also retained the previous model’s 1,250cc, XPAG engine, but was later replaced by a 1,466cc XPEG engine.

This newer version of the TF was dubbed the TF 1500. Visually, it was very difficult to differentiate the TF from the TF 1500. The only exterior differences between the two vehicles were two discreet ‘TF 1500’ motifs on each of the bonnet side panels, and the addition of two rear reflectors. After 18 months of producing the TF 1500, the model was retired. During it’s lifetime, 9,602 TF’s had been manufactured, as well as two prototypes and 3,400 of the upgraded TF 1500. Production ended at chassis number TF10100 on the April 4th 1955, and the TF-series was later replaced by the MGA.

You spot it from a distance. The sunlight glistens off it’s clean black finish. With its top down, the cherry red leather interior of the MG TF invites you in. At the same time, it’s menacing sloped grille and headlights intimidate you. They beg the question ‘Are you ready to take on this beast?’ You approach the driver’s side door, in awe of the beautifully rounded side paneling that spans the entire length of the car. Hinged towards the back of the car, the door swings outward, giving you a full glimpse of the incredible craftsmanship that went into this vehicle. The steering wheel is smooth to the touch, as is the rest of the dash. Sitting there in admiration of this fine piece of machinery, you almost wish you had a passenger to experience it with you.

But not today; Today, it’s just you, the beast, and the open road. You insert the keys into the ignition and reach for the starting knob. The engine roars as the car starts, but then recedes to a reassuring purr. Finally, you work up the courage to bring your foot to the gas pedal and pull out onto the road. You rest your arm on the side of the door as you run your fingers across the car’s smooth black exterior. Gripping the wheel with one hand, your fingers fall almost perfectly into the grooves on the back of the steering wheel. The wind in your face is cool, but the sun on the back of your neck keeps you warm. With a single hand on the wheel, you cruise down the street, slowly picking up speed. The attitude and intimidation that this machine had once instilled in you has now become a part of you. All your doubts and worries slowly drift away, settling alongside the pedestrians that gaze as you drive off into the distance. Finally, a feeling of calmness and relaxation washes over your body. Not only were you prepared to take on this beast, you’ve now conquered it. This particular MG TF 1500 from 1955 has been well loved and pampered over it’s years of ownership.

A documented $30,000.00 body-off frame restoration was performed with the original color combination. A full leather interior and the seats are finished in stunning cherry red. This MG TF comes equipped with StaFast canvas convertible top, side curtains and tonneau cover. In addition, it comes with the original wire wheels and Yokohama 165/15 radials. Original owner’s manual and seatbelts added. This TF was built for export to California. It was sold to Continental Motors in Witter, CA to an engineer and pilot who lives in the affluent community of Palos Verdes. Being shipped from California it possesses an immaculate rust-free body will all original panels that fit wonderfully.

  • Special ordered Sable brown metallic

I got the notion to look for Porsches after watching some recent TV series that depict life in the 80's. In the TV sitcom 'The Goldbergs', there's an episode with a Porsche 928 that mimics a scene from the 80's hit movie 'Risky Business' with Tom Cruise. Cruise's character, Joel, lets his father's beloved Porsche roll off a dock and it ends up sinking into a lake. I remember watching the movie and the impact it had on me--all I could think was how such an awesome sports car got ruined!  

Now we're seeing increase in value for these forgotten stars. They're starting to shine bright again and in the near future will be brighter than ever. In the last five years there's been a steady increase in value and each year that goes by there's been a bigger increase than the year before. This particular car is the best available investment grade 944 on the market.  

This Porsche had one owner who took meticulous care, to the extent of writing down every single gas stop, recording the mileage, date and price per gallon of each stop. He even capped and laminated the dealership key-tag, along with all of the original sale brochures, documentation, cassette tape, keys and any other additionals that were given to him at the time of the sale. We have the original title, complete tool kit, tire compressor and a number of original knick knacks.   The car runs and performs beautifully. I have to give credit to the original owner who put so much effort and care into preserving this car so that other Porsche enthusiast can enjoy the experience like he once did.

The Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano replaced the 575M Maranello and was styled by Pininfarina under the leadership of Ferrari’s Frank Stephenson and received its name for its total engine displacement (5999cc). The 599 GTB is powered by a V12 engine that produces a maximum 612hp.

This particular Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano has exceptional balance between speed, style and heritage. When you walk up to the vehicle your heart starts to pump. As you open the door you can hear the F1 Pump anticipate the V12 engine roaring to life. As you pull out the red Ferrari key from your pocket and you put it into the ignition and turn it, you can hear the individual clicks. Your gaze gets immediately drawn to the beautiful gauge cluster as it lights up and you stare at the yellow Ferrari tachometer. As your vision shifts down to the steering wheel you notice the beautiful craftsmanship of the mounted paddle shifters to the steering column. A bright Ferrari red engine start button catches your eye. Pushing the red button brings the behemoth to life. It roars and crackles and the RPM needle is slightly under 2,000.

  • Front and Rear Radar
  • LOJACK
  • Active Sports Exhaust Button
  • 2nd Owner
  • Interior Color: Navy

The California is full of firsts for Ferrari. It is the first-mounted V-8-engine Ferrari to use direct injection, dual-clutch automated manual transmission and the first true launch-control system. However, Ferrari’s racing lineage has not been changed with the development of this car. It has more eloquently expanded the range of Ferrari’s. The California is a leather lined, 2+2 coupé, but please be advise only children can fit in the back seats that screams Ferrari’s racing heritage.  The California produces 454 hp and 357lb-ft of torque. The dual clutch seven speed automated manual gearbox is close to perfection and is way better than the old F1 automated manual. The shifts in the dual clutch are made in nanoseconds. The neck-snapping caused by the F1 is completely gone. The California does 0-60 in an astonishing 3.5 seconds and the quarter mile in 11.9 seconds. However, the true engineering genius behind the California is the retractable hardtop. The chassis does not lose any of its structural rigidity. Many have speculated why Ferrari stacked the exhaust pipes, was it for styling? No, Ferrari does not build vehicles based on styling. Everything is done for a specific reason. At high speeds air pressure will build up in the wheel wells, therefore creating a lift. Ferrari knew this and put a vent in the back of the wheel well. The solution eliminated the possibility of the car’s rear end getting light while playing in the triple-digit zone. The California is the best of both worlds; a comfortable daily cruiser and flip the switch to sport mode it becomes a track ready performer.  

It’s a summer morning, there is a slight breeze and the temperature is around 75 degrees. There isn’t a cloud in the sky and the sun is shining on the back of your neck. As you elegantly weave through the backroads you smile, as you have done over and over again. The Grigio Silverstone Metallic glistens and sparkles as the sun pierces through the tree’s. The active sports exhaust produces a menacing roar and as you put your foot down to the floor the chorus gets louder. As the RPM needle approaches redline your hands grasps a firm piece of alloy that is mounted to the steering column. The design of the paddle shifters has an elegant artistic flair that embody Ferrari’s racing-bred heritage. With a slight pull the upshifts are instantaneous and refined. As you approach the stop light and push down on the brake pedal the racing black Brembo brake calibers bring you to a complete stop with poise and grace. With a quick glance to left your and right you see no other vehicles. With a slight smile you push the accelerator to the floor and you’ve already reached 60 MPH’s in 3.5 seconds. As you whip around the corner you are yet again impressed with the California because it has no understeer, it takes the corner with ease. As you approach your office building and park your California in your favorite spot. Away from all of the other vehicles, tucked in a corner with a cement support beam to your right and the cement wall to your left. With a quick flick of the convertible switch the Ferrari hardtop opens from the trunk and goes up at a 90-degree angle. You are amazed by the speed at which the hardtop and the trunk swing almost centimeters apart before the hardtop is secured into place. That’s Ferrari’s craftsmanship at its finest. With a quick click of the lock button on the Ferrari red racing key, you rejoice. Why? This is because your California is your daily driver.  

This particular Ferrari California comes with a whole range of options and added goodies. To begin, from the factory it received Daytona Seat style, Central Tunnel and Arms in leather. Electronically operated seats, Scuderia Ferrari Shields, Magneride Dual Mode, Parking Camera, Front and Rear parking sensors, Yellow Rev. Counter and many more options. In addition, there is a LOJACK system installed along with Front and Rear Radar. There is a button underneath the steering column that opens up the valves in the exhaust to keep it in sport mode all the time. A clear BRA has been installed on the front of the California and wraps around half way up the doors. Both of the front tires were replaced recently and a four-wheel alignment was performed. This Ferrari has been kept in excellent condition. Everything functions and looks beautiful in the interior. We have the original window sticker, red-Ferrari jump bag, and red-Ferrari book.
