Lancia 037 Group B Represents Last Era Of Racing Romance

“It’s not like [the 037] was just a sports car designed for people who wanted to go fast,” says Phil. “This was designed for a purpose, and I love things that were designed specifically for a purpose, like a tool–except it's a fast tool that scares the crap out of you.”

There are certain cars that define a place and time. Cars that are so part of the culture that they helped to define it. The Mini is one of them. But why is that? Well, as Mr. Sumner Norman explains, it's because the Mini was ubiquitous–everyone bought one, be it moms shopping for groceries or international recording stars like the Beatles who recognized its universal appeal.
The Land Rover Series III Is Equipped For Adventure

On any given day, Pav can be found shooting anything from a 1932 Daimler Double-Six in one corner of the United States to a Jaguar D-Type on the opposite side of the continent. If he’s at home in California, however, odds are you’ll find Pav in the seat of a ride defined by its simplicity: his 1973 Land Rover Series III.
Father And Son Make Peerless Racing Duo

When Mr. Paul Cressey hits the track at Laguna Seca for the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion (aka The Monterey Historics) in his 1959 Peerless GT, he faces plenty of tough competition. For Paul, however, that competition is especially personal, including as it does his father, Ron, who is known for running his own 1959 Corvette in the same race.

I’d love to come along for one of these shoots one day. They are shot right in my backyard on roads I drive everyday. Would be great to see these things in action in the flesh.

I see that most of your East Coast videos are done either on Route 218 near Cornwall, NY or on the roads through Bear Mountain State Park, such as Seven Lakes Drive. I live literally on Route 218 and am half a dozen miles north of Bear Mountain. If your film crew ever needs a place to park, eat lunch, reorganize, brainstorm, hide from the cops, etc., contact me. stephwilkinson@verizon.net

I learned to drive on Seven Lakes Drive. What a brilliant place to learn how to drive quick on a twisting road, its endless. In the nineties you’d often fun into Mercedes, BMW and Jaguar engineers testing out that way, my Dad being one of them.

I love the garage mr. Philip Toledano has. A Lancia Stratos, BMW M1 and this Lancia O37.
And he is, with understatement, the Woody Allen of car owners…. that high revving turbo engine just needs to be pushed harder.
Great video and don’t we all just love Lancia’s?

In the BMW M1 video theres one last little gem, an Alpine A110.

Nice car! I don’t know anything about this car either, but I like the size, balance, engine combo, and all the hand-fitted touches. I’d give it a run! Also looks like it is easy to work on!

Thanks for sharing.

I had never seen one either until I saw two of them (and a Stratos) together at a vintage car dealer in Italy last year. I agree, the proportions are just perfect.

For something even rarer and very funky, you should see the Lancia S4 that replaced the 037.

In parts of this video, I think I heard this little red machine asking me put the hammer down. Those legs need to be stretched out and that motor is begging to be wound up! That motor is like a little caged beast.

Very nice, and many thanks to the owner for taking the time to share.

Love it. Love this car that I don’t know much about. Love the photography. REALLY love that one single shot of the garage containing those other epic cars. What a collection.

Group B saw the death of 2WD and the birth and domination of AWD. My favorite car, the 190E 2.3-16, was also a victim of the AWD domination in Group B.
