Stuff You May Not Want To See

by Mike –

In every car lovers life there are times that we see a classic car, maybe our car maybe a car belonging to someone else, in a condition that is not fun to look at or think about.

Here are photos of some of those moments:

Ferrari 360 Modena

A red Ferrari and a big truck with a careless driver make for a bad combination and no Ferrari driver likes to see a police car this close. This was a bad day.

The body is all aluminum.

This is a real heart breaker – the Ferrari above was fixed but this Lamborghini Miura below is likely done for.

Someone thought it was a good idea to cripple this classic Ferrari 212 to use the 250 GT engine and chassis to make a replica of another classic Ferrari.

The two Iso/Bizzarrini race cars above were totaled and history says they were assembled into one car using the front of one and the rear of the other but no one has seen this car since 1965.

This Iso Grifo above looks totaled but it was saved and is now in excellent condition.

No one likes to see the engine from a fairly new Lamborghini Gallardo Spider removed.

Someone bought this burned and rusted Bizzarrini GT 5300 and hopefully it will return to life soon.

Someone bought the Iso Grifo above and I hope to see it back on the road sometime, or at least parts of it back on the road.

It is a good thing that the Lamborghini Gallardo is four wheel drive, that comes in handy when one needs to get out of a sand trap.

Fortunately these flames on my Bizzarrini GT 5300 Strada are not real but were Photoshoped by Mike Clarke onto a photo by Rich Truesdell.

If you have photos that I may not want to see send them in! – by email at mike@mycarquest.com.

  1. None of these are fun to see, but they are proof that just because you can afford a nice car, it doesn’t mean you deserve it. Some of these “accidents” shouldn’t have happened.
    And others are a good reminder to make sure that you have proper insurance coverage.
    But why do you say that the one and only Spyder is rotting away in a warehouse in California? It’s not out in the elements, and likely not getting much worse for wear. I’m sure we all would love to see it restored and out where people could enjoy it, hopefully that’s in it’s future.

    … or play polo in a car with a propeller?
