  1. I’m a fan of your videos, each car more incredible than the other, a hug from Brazil, the puma and Bianco are legendary!

  2. I was lucky enough to hear and see the Cheetah at Road America back in 2018, it’s an absolute monster of a car

  3. It’s strange what highly valued and collectible cars can be considered β€œforgotten”.. The Espada was the best-selling Lamborghini of its time. It took until 1994 for the Countach to outsell it. They are still in high demand by collectors. The Kellison, Cheetah and Marcos too. Entertaining video, though. Cheers.

  4. I was kind of surprised, there actually a few cars in there that I had never heard of. But I don’t think the Bradley should count as it was a kit car.

    A side note. I had a Triumph GT-6+ and really enjoyed it but it was actually a poor handling and slow car. The one thing it did really well was to make you feel like you were going fast when you actually weren’t. And it was a good thing that you thought you were going fast because actually going fast in that car would have been near suicidal. The car could get away from you really fast. I spun it unintentionally, trying to avoid running down a skunk on an interstate. The bastard sprayed my car as a neatly spun around him and off into the shoulder, throwing grass and dirt into the air. Nothing damaged, nobody, not even a skunk, was hurt.

    1. I had among other things a Mk1 Vitesse which used identical underpinnings. I can confirm the dodgy handling..Later GT6s were fairly sorted, and most people would say avoid early ones..Except they just look ten times better so I’ll put up with dodgy handling.
      I had another which had a weld failure on the chassis rail holding the radius arm. If you ever wanted to know what it was like driving a boat through London..Remove a radius arm on a 60s Triumph.

    2. Remember the TR-7 and TR-8’s? Triumph’s last gasps. If Triumph had switched to Nippon-Denso electrics from “George Lucas, Prince of Darkness” the TR-8 could’ve been a fun car. Maybe. QC on the rest of the car wasn’t anything to get excited about either. Toyota Corolla SR-5 Hatchbacks took over the market about that time, not from performance so much (my Alfa Romeo Spyder Velocie 1800 had that!) but from durability and dependability. Keep oil in it, put gas in it and drive-like a Honda cycle vs: a Triumph Tiger Cub or BSA (Barely Starts Anymore). MGB=More Garage Bills. Yup. Had ’em all! Bug-Eyed Sprite too! If you had a GT-6 in the US, you know about vapor-lock and the cure; a Weber!

  5. Stacey David recently built a Cheetah from scratch on his GearZ show. Also, there is still a small company out there with the tools and molds building new, DriveTribe did an article on them.

  6. Interesting fact, back in the 60s and 70s we had a large scale slot racing track in our garage and a even some of these cars in 1/16 scale.

  7. Thank you very much for showing us so many special cars. this must have been a lot of work to collect and document all of this.

  8. Mazda RX3, had one of those back in the day when I was a lad, absolutely loved it but keeping the twin rotor engine in tune was frustrating, it ate spark plugs and then the engine died when water entered the rotor housings. I rebuilt it but when it went again two years later I sold it for peanuts and moved on.

  9. I was fortunate enough that my parents bought me a used RX3 as my first car. It was such a fun car to drive that my best friend at the time went out and bought a used RX2. It used a lot of oil though, we always joked that when we stopped at a gas station we would fill up with oil and check the gas.

  10. My Dad owned a Truimph GT6 until I was born and he traded it in for a Dolomite. He loved the GT6 but it required almost constant maintenance. He had to weld up the exhaust three times because it rusted so often and he had to make parts by hand sometimes(he worked in engineering). But it was obviously more fun to drive than a Dolomite…

    1. Now if he had got a Dolomite Sprint – that’s a faster car than the GT6, with 4 seats and doors, with comfort.

  11. A lot of these cars seem to have two things in common, one, the engines run kind of rough, and two, the drivers like to ride the clutch.

  12. The Venturi is my favorite car here. Top Gear tested one on a episode in the 90s. The Lamborghini Espada and the Jarama don’t get the love and attention that they deserve. It’s a shame Lamborghini doesn’t make a GT car anymore. Thank you.

  13. The first car we were able to outrun the PoPo in was in an RX3 Mazda. The RX3″s never stopped going faster.

  14. One of the most forgotten cars is the Renault Fuego. So common in the 1980s. Nowadays you do not even see any on retro shows.

  15. The GT6 weighed about 19 pounds without the engine. I had a ’67 (with wire wheels) for quite a few years in the early 70’s and I’d say for about 10% of that time the car was airborne. Bought it for $1,300 off a rich kid who was bored with it, I’d gladly pay 20 times that now for one as cherry as that one was.

  16. When I was a kid, one of the neighbors in the building had a silver Bianco. It was a very nice-looking car and not a cheap one to buy, but being built on top of a VW air-cooled platform, it was all show and no go. πŸ™‚

  17. It’s strange to see a video from another country showing two Brazilian sports cars, the Puma and the Bianco. I loved it! In Brazil, during some years, we couldn’t import cars. So, the Brazilian fabricators worked hard to show something new. Most of them used the air cooled boxer 4 cil. from VW or the 250 ci 6 cil from Chevrolet. Cars like Puma, Santa Matilde, Farus, Miura, Bianco, Adamo, Art and others were the dream for guys like me…and still are.
    Thank you for this @Car News TV 😎
