Everyone knows someone who rushes out to buy the newest car. Guess what? The best cars are never the first model year. Every car model evolves with time. Quality goes up, engines get more power, and eventually, the last model year is the best example.
What if a dealer only chose to sell the best examples on the market? It would be C&N Motor Cars in Marysville, Ohio. A quick glance at their inventory shows a few common denominators. Each car is the most desirable example of its generation, so here are a few examples.
Starting with Corvettes, they have mint-condition NCRS examples of a 1958 Fuelie (owned by Joey Chitwood), 1967 big block, 1971 ZR1, and 1992 ZR1, these are the rarest of the rare.
Now we get to the real stunners. This 2006 Ford GT was ordered with stripe delete and the 3 most desired options. Those are the McIntosh surround sound, BBS forged wheels and red brake calipers. Oh, and it has only been driven 156 miles!
If you prefer proper British luxury, this 1927 Rolls-Royce is for you. It is a Phantom I Ascot Tourer, one of only 28 examples. You are looking at the last Ascot Tourer body ever built on a Rolls-Royce chassis, and it has been fully restored by our friends at Vantage Motorworks.
The next Rolls-Royce is a 1935 Phantom II with complete history. It is Right Hand Drive and includes the build sheet and documentation from every owner since new.
Everyone should experience the thrills and quality of a late-model Jaguar. This F-Type R convertible sends 550 horsepower and 502 lb-ft of torque to all wheels. It is fully loaded with heated and cooled seats, leather headliner & visors, Meridian 770w surround sound. With only 1,502 miles, it needs to be the centerpiece of your drop-top supercharged summer!
If Italians are your thing, this 1999 Lamborghini Diablo is the epitome of 90’s technology. Not only is it Viscous Traction (All Wheel Drive) it is a roadster with front axle lift and only 1,217 miles.
And now for the Grand Finale. If you are a Ferrari fan, you might be interested in a 1973 Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona. Not only is this the final year for this iconic machine, this one was ordered with power windows, A/C, Borrani wheels, and the Alpine tape deck. It is a Ferrari Platinum Award winner.
If you see the USA in your Chevrolet, check out these unique rides:
Starting with the more modest inventory, the Chevrolet Monte Carlo was scheduled for execution in 2002. But they didn’t let it waste away, instead, the supercharged SS model borrowed Buick’s 3.8L V6 to offer 300 horsepower and 330 lb-ft of torque. This 2004 model is a Dale Earnhardt Jr. Edition with 4,421 miles. Only 2,883 editions were built, and it was the highlight of the Monte Carlo’s final years.
A similar story unfolded with the end of the 4th Generation Camaro. GM decided the Camaro and Firebird had to die by the end of 2002. Every 2002 Camaro wears a 35th Anniversary badge on the dash, signifying continuous production since 1967. Although it wasn’t advertised, the 2002 Camaro SS was given many parts from the Corvette Z06, and it could outperform its big brother on the track. It truly was the end of an era. This highly desirable example has every option and only 2,533 miles.
