1987 Buick Ad

1987 Buick LeSabre

Question: Is a Buick LeSabre a luxury car? What about a LeSabre Coupe, which seems a little more indulgent than the sedan? For this collection of luxury vehicle ads, we’ve dipped a little low on the price scale by including Mercurys and Oldsmobiles, as well as the aforementioned Buick. Even if they’re not true luxury rides, it’s easy enough to argue that these particular cars are at least a cut above the mainstream fray.


2019 Mecum Chicago Auction GalleryLike it does every October, the Mecum Auctions road show rolled in to the Schaumberg Convention Center in Schaumberg, Illinois, late last month. As usual, the Mecum Chicago event boasted its share of big-ticket, six-figure classics—the top seller of this year’s show was a rare Calypso Coral 1970 Ford Mustang Boss 429 (pictured below) that went for $275,000.

Some may not know that Alfa Romeo and Maserati — both upscale Italian brands — are part of FCA (Fiat Chrysler Automobiles), and thus “corporate cousins” to Chrysler, Dodge, Fiat, Jeep, and Ram vehicles. But that’s about where the similarities end.

It is a general expectation that when two separate companies cooperate to develop a product, said product would represent the best that each partner has to offer.


2017 Maserati Levante

2016 new York Auto ShowWhat’s next … a Ferrari SUV?!?

With sport-utilities being birthed by some very unexpected mothers — including Porsche, Bentley, Lamborghini, Jaguar, and now Maserati — we’d no longer put it beyond the realm of possibility. Though we’re pretty sure Enzo would do a barrel roll on his racetrack in the sky.

While the Maserati nameplate has been part of the automotive world since the Twenties, the five car-building Maserati brothers initially busied themselves solely with competition machines. It wasn’t until after World War II that the marque’s trident logo appeared on roadgoing grand tourers.

Okay, maybe they’re not “newly” classic, as all hit that mark back on January 1 of this year. But who would be looking for a convertible then?

Of course, the same might be said for mid October. But although summer is waning, fall is a perfectly good time to enjoy a top-down drive – particularly if you live in the Sunbelt. And while any convertible will do for this, one of these classic convertibles might not only draw more attention, but may also be much cheaper to license and insure; in many cases, insurance for a classic car (one at least 25 years old) costs a fraction of what it does for a “normal” car.


The Kubang Concept, unveiled at the 2011 Frankfurt Auto Show, hints at where Maserati may take the Levante stylistically.

A famed Italian brand issues its first SUV to challenge the likes of Porsche Cayenne and Range Rover Sport. The premium-midsize Levante is a distant cousin of the Jeep Grand Cherokee, but promises to uphold Maserati’s reputation for style, performance, and luxury.
