The best vintage and classic cars for sale online bring a trailer how to get rid of fluid behind the eardrum

Pretty much anyone you ask will know that the Jeep Wrangler/CJ-series are the direct descendants of the Willys MB military vehicle, even if they’re not actually familiar with its original name or the finer details of its history. On the contrary, excluding enthusiasts, these days few remember either International Harvester or its hugely influential Scout, despite their key role in the evolution of the modern and all-conquering SUV.

Development began in the late 1950’s, and right from the start management of the Illinois-based company intended for the then-unnamed model to be a CJ competitor. Early design proposals and prototypes followed much the same recipe, with open, slab-sided and entirely function-defined “styling.” An interesting turn of events involving Goodyear’s nascent automotive plastics engineering division soon saw the adaptation of a more refined shape, and though ultimately bodied in traditional steel, the earliest 1961 models emerged from the factory just 24 months from the program’s start.


Though over a nearly 20-year production run the model would gain many refinements, even the latest Scout II’s remain refreshingly straightforward, and while a huge variety of removable tops, wheelbases and drivetrain options means there’s a Scout to suit most tastes, they all share much the same charmingly tough, unpretentious (some might say “agricultural”) character and unmatched orphan brand cool.

This 1972 AAR Eagle Drake Offy (chassis 7729) is the result of an arrangement between the late, great Dan Gurney and Philippe de Lespinay to build two brand-new racers from new-old-stock parts, each replicating one of the no-longer-extant machines driven by Bobby Unser and Jerry Grant in 1972 and ’73. Using two NOS 1972 AAR-Eagle aluminum monocoque chassis (originally built by Phil Remington, no less) and legit AAR-Drake-Miller-Offenhauser 159ci “Twin-Pump” turbo motors, one car was painted to replicate Grant’s ride, while the other, pictured here, looks like Unser’s. The engine used in the car at hand is said to have won the 1974 California 500, and to be tunable from 650-1000 HP. Described as fast, very reliable and great handling, the car has been constantly tweaked since completion and is presented in what appears to be museum-ready condition, even if we’d much prefer it continue to be driven and demo’d for years to come. Find it here at Morris and Welford in Newport Beach, California for $275k. Special thanks to BaT reader Kyle K. for this submission.

Filmed in 1971 but unreleased for more than 40 years, Weekend of a Champion chronicles Jackie Stewart’s winning Monaco Grand Prix weekend in glorious 35mm Technicolor. Produced and co-directed by Sir Stewart’s close friend Roman Polanski, the film follows the Scottish legend from his hotel room to the pits, through practice and setup sessions, to intense discussions with engineers and team administrators, and even during a narrated and rainy recce lap at the wheel of a wicker-dash Michelotti Shellette beach car. There’s lots of exciting in-car footage as well, recorded in stereo and capturing Stewart’s Tyrrell 003’s Cosworth DFV screaming through the narrow streets of motorsports’ favorite principality.

Stewart is thoughtful, warm and vulnerable, discussing everything from safety and politics to fashion, friendship and dating as though it was just him and Polanski, both throughout the original film as well as a lengthy prologue produced for its long-delayed 2013 release. Stewart would go on to win his second of three championships in ’71, and this wonderful film provides privileged insight to the man and the era with rare depth, emotion and clarity. Clear a 90 minute block of day, grab a drink and be inspired.

This 1986 Chevrolet Camaro IMSA GTO racer (chassis 861) is described as the only remaining of two built and campaigned with full factory support . These cars incorporated cutting edge technology for the time, including a carbon fiber tub (a claimed first outside of Formula 1 and IndyCar), built-in air jacks, a stress-mounted SBC, and March IndyCar-derived suspension. Sponsored by Levi Garrett and Hendrick Motorsport, the car recorded an impressive seven poles and five wins over the course of the 1986 and 1987 seasons. Additionally, it’s raced at the 24 Hours of Daytona, the 12 Hours of Sebring, and more recently at the Monterey Historics. Extensive wind tunnel time led to its slippery shape, while its tough Katech Engineering SBC is described as “ready to go.” An extensive spares package, with everything from wheels to an extra fresh motor, is included. Well documented in the period and now one-of-a-kind, we’d love to see this one back in action. Find it here on eBay in Roseburg, Oregon with reserve not met.
