1968 Porsche 912
Beautiful Sand Beige Porsche 912
John has a real beauty of a classic Porsche here for you fast car fans. This is one of the finest Porsche 912's I've seen with fewer than 47k miles on the odometer. With the exception of a repaint in its original Sand Beige this is a nearly original classic Porsche.
All of the mechanicals were gone through and over $6000 was spent to ensure every mechanical component of the car was in correct operating condition. Original Porsche parts were used where replacement was necessary. The work included the engine, transmission, fuel system, brakes, electrical, suspension/rear shocks/alignment, engine compartment insulation, wiper blades, tires, battery, and she was treated to a full tune-up. For all the juicy details see it is action on the 1968 Porsche 912 for sale page at Sunset Classics. Two photo galleries and three videos!

Classic rare Vintage Era Model T
The early Ford Model T is the epitome of Brass-era automobiles. Henry Ford called his Model T The Universal Car; he firmly believed that he had perfected the modern automobile. While he may have been a little optimistic, the Model T and the Ford Motor Company did set the bar rather high for automobiles of the future. Before the end of the 1920s, more than one half of all the cars in the entire world were Model T Fords. At no other point in history has a single car company held so much market share.
This is a beautifully restored 1921 Model T Roadster for sale by Sunset Classics. 1921 entered the Vintage Age for classic automobiles, and the Model T is a perfect example of the class and style of that age.
John has several videos, a couple hundred photos, and a detailed description on the 1921 Ford Model T for Sale page on Sunset Classics.
