Our heavyweight champion, Balázs, or better known as Assur on the premises is the news writer of the mother site, totalcar.hu. Oh yes, he’s an automotive engineer too. They say there isn’t a data that has ever escaped his mind, all we know is that he can drop into any conversation about any car that was made after the war, and he’ll be able to add a ton of details you won’t ever be able to find in books. He has been thinking of selling his longserving Volvo for years, so he always has some used car adverts open on his computer, just in case. Has a wife and two (almost grown-up) children.

The 1971 Hemi Cuda is expected to go for about $4 million.

The muscle cars from the turn of the 60’s and 70’s are still among the more affordable classics. Most models, even ones in pretty good condition can be bought for a few thousands of dollars. There are a few exceptions, though. The ’71 Plymouth Hemi Cuda Convertible was, unlike its predecessors, a limited series. The model pictured is one of only two four-speed models in the U.S., and is the only one still featuring its original engine and drivetrain.


Twelve years ago this ’71 model became the first American muscle car to be sold for more than $1 million, but the one up for sale at the Mecum auction house is expected to go for four times as much in July. The question is why any collector would want to spend that much on a car when earlier models thereof cost around $400,000.

I will not apologize

I’d originally wanted to test this promisingly wonderful little gem from Lancia. Oh, yes, two thing Italians are best at: making small cars and doing fashion. Then I ended up writing a letter.
