25 Useless Sports Cars No One Should Ever Race (Or Drive)

When a Ferrari 812 Superfast pulls up and stops at the valet in front of a famous gourmet restaurant, everyone watching knows it is a high-performance sports car.

Who Remembers This Whalom Park 1951 Crosley Truck?

Employed for 49 years to ferry visitors around until the Lake Whalom attraction closed on September 4, 2000, this 1951 Kiddie Hook and Ladder Fire Truck Amusement Ride proved hugely popular with children of all ages.

The site upon which the park sat was redeveloped for housing back in 2006, but the truck found a home when park assets were sold on; before arsonists began torching what remained. Now, after 19 years of enthusiast ownership, the truck could be yours for $40k.

Most adults who harbor a deep love for all things automotive grew up loving all things automotive ‘ it’s one of those age-spanning infatuations, unlike a passing interest in grape popsicles or dance music or that girl who sat in front of you in Grade 9 English class. Once you’re hooked on broader subjects like autos, history, or whatever else, it seems a person never strays from the path.
