Maserati 3500GT Will Make You Fall In Love

We're all affected differently. Some people fall in love because their dad or uncle had one. Others fall in love out of necessity, constant breakdowns requiring them to work on their car. For Mr. Frank Mandarano a tour through the Maserati factory in the '60s was enough for him to be smitten. He bought his first Maserati a few years later, a red 3500GT, which promptly broke the day after he bought it.

This Oakland Racer Fits Just Perfectly
Some people might consider Mr. Brian Bent's lifestyle extreme, an anachronism perhaps. But we have a feeling that he'd be OK with that. You see, when Brian purchased this 1927 Oakland he built the clutch pack himself. He also makes his own 1920s and '30s style surfboards and his own period-correct clothing. Brian applies "Drive Tastefully" to his entire life, making sure that all the pieces fit him.
1967 Plymouth Barracuda Formula S: In Torque We Trust
Mr. Bob Gough's family moved to France for a few years when he was thirteen years-old and thus he grew up idolizing European sports cars and looking down on American muscle. That was until he discovered the 1967 Plymouth Barracuda Formula S. The ‘Cuda Formula S was upgraded in-house by Plymouth with suspension and brakes, allowing it to keep pace with Europe's best.
1956 Porsche 356A Speedster's Racing Past Shines Through
When new, this was the least expensive Porsche available and had a ‘less is more’ philosophy behind it. Indeed, the car was intended to be taken to the track and be a legitimate club-racing contender. It seems that that’s precisely how this 356 spent a large portion of its early life. Raced around Connecticut, the car racked up trophies and actually won the E-Production Championship in 1963.

Just lovely. I ve been following this magazine since one year ago and I can’t express the joy and surprise I ‘m facing every time I come across a new video. It’s not all about cars, it ‘s about men loving cars and their passion. Inspirational. I’m so proud my country could produce pieces of art such as this amazing Maserati made in Modena

This video made me appreciate a car I would otherwise not look twice at (a matter of opinion). What always compels us, is the relation people have with their car, more than the vehicle itself. This film proved that point.

Great car and great video. Perfect choice of music for it too. One question The car is running on Carbs but looks to have an injection badge on the back? It this one of the 3500GT’s that originally ran Lucas ‘Prince of Darkness’ injection and later converted to carbs?

Im so in love with this car. I think im getting the Maserati bug as well :D. This car is such a good looking Italian beauty. These old cars are just like wine they seem to just get better with age. I just love hearing the sound of the DOHC 6 cylinder while he is cruising around the bend.

This is really too funny of a story. Just think the guy buys the car. Then he proceeds to purchase not just parts for his car but entire DEALERS because a part broke. Now that’s dedication to your car! Great video.
