the 1967 Porsche 906E, recently sold for $980,000.
This is such a fantastic home video, of a man named George taking a trip to Stuttgart to pick up his (then new) Porsche 912 from the factory! The authenticity of this video is just great. George is seemingly still an active member of the 912 community and still has his 912—-45 years later. He states it has 175k miles on it and that it was a daily driver for 15 years.
Thanks to Dan for the tip on this video:

i will contend that the greatest sounding cars in the history of motor racing were can am cars. if you would like to debate me about this, then you have never witnessed them in person!
I had posted these videos about a year and half ago—but just saw them again today and had to repost them.
race footage from 1967 Road America.
the original Lancia Fulvia is a total legend……and adding to the legend is this rare, but fascinating rebodied Fulvia redone by Zagato and sold in Limited Edition. A couple of years ago, i had a chance to by an unrestored one of these, but passed it up just due to the huge amount of cash it would have costed to get it back to shape. One day though, when i have enough loot to swing around, i want a Fulvia HF and a Fulvia Sport Zagato in my garage…….together!
taken from the Ultimate Car Page:
“In April 1965 the first prototype was ready and it was Elio Zagato himself who conducted the road tests. Before the end of the year the production of the Fulvia Sport 1.3 Zagato was started. As can be seen in the second picture, the rear hatch could be opened slightly electrically to improve ventilation while driving. The first production were powered by a 1.2 litre V4 engines, pumping out a decent 80 bhp. In 1967 the displacement was increased to 1.3 litres. This larger engine was available in two states of tune, 87 bhp for the Sport 1.3 and 93 bhp for the Sport 1.3S. In 1970 the Fulvia Sport was slightly restyled and a 115 bhp 1.6 litre engine was added to the line-up.”
Here are some of my favourite Fulvia Sport Zagato photographs:

Last year, at the CORONADO FESTIVAL OF SPEED in San Diego, i witnessed the absolute MADNESS of Can Am cars…….the most glorious, wicked, and loud exhausts i have ever heard. My ears were never the same. I got back from that trip and immediately ordered the loudest exhaust i could for my car!
These cars were amazing. CAN AM racing was amazing! WATCH THIS:
