Dear Santa: Yes, it's me again. As usual, I'm asking for 12 cars. I know that's a lot, but I was really, really good this year - not one speeding ticket! (Even the police were surprised.) I know most of them look pretty impractical, but the heart wants what it wants. Please do your best. http://www.theglobeandmail.com/globe-drive/car-life/galleries/in-pictures-the-12-cars-of-christmas/article6566197/
Early in the 1950s, Chrysler created its legendary FirePower Hemi V-8. These potent engines soon found their way into a handful of special NASCAR racers, and this in turn led to the limited production C300 coupe of 1955. The 300, standing for 300 hp, was the most ever offered in an American car that could be driven off a showroom floor. A year later came the 300B, which began an alphabetical progression of ever more powerful, extravagantly styled and luxuriously equipped coupes and convertibles that would end with the 300L of 1965. The cars pictured here were part of the Cars of Dreams Museum collection of American cars of the 1950s and 60s, recently auctioned by Canada’s RM Auctions. http://www.theglobeandmail.com/globe-drive/car-life/galleries/in-pictures-classic-cars-of-the-rock-and-roll-era/article6369214/
