However, it's possibly affordable to collect a handful of vintage rides, especially if you look a touch off the beaten path. In recent video, <em><a href="http://www.autoblog.com/tag/petrolicious/">Petrolicious</a></em> highlights Hans Abrahams, who is doing just that. He has three 1960s, European classics that love to be driven.<br /><br />The absolute star of the trio is a <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/tag/sunbeam+tiger/">1966 Sunbeam Tiger</a>. In the cabin, it has the meaty growl of a muscle car, but outside it has a little of the raspiness of period European cars. Abrahams says its mostly original except for its <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/ford/">Ford</a> 289-cubic-inch (4.7-liter) V8 with <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/tag/shelby/">Shelby</a> parts, producing around 273 horsepower. He says it's a bit difficult to maintain and hard to keep cool, but when you hear it, you know the trouble is worth it.<br /><br />Next up, is Abrahams' <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/tag/mgb/">1965 MGB</a> that is a bit of a monster in its own right. It lacks the Tiger's oomph under the hood, but it's loud enough to blow out <em>Petrolicious</em>' microphone. It's still a very cool little roadster.<br /><br />Finally, there is a <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/tag/volvo+amazon/">1967 Volvo Amazon 123GT</a>, Abrahams' daily driver, that might secretly be the best of the lot. While it probably wouldn't win a race with its two siblings in Abrahams' garage, it's the most livable and still sounds absolutely amazing. At full chat, it's like a hive of angry hornets live under the hood.<br /><br /><a href="/2014/06/18/shelby-powered-sunbeam-tiger-video/#continued">Scroll down</a> and turn up the speakers to listen to this European power trio.<p><a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2014/06/18/shelby-powered-sunbeam-tiger-video/" rel="bookmark">Continue reading <em>Turn up your speakers for this Shelby-powered Sunbeam Tiger and friends</em></a></p><p style="padding:5px;background:#ddd;border:1px solid #ccc;clear:both;"><a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2014/06/18/shelby-powered-sunbeam-tiger-video/">Turn up your speakers for this Shelby-powered Sunbeam Tiger and friends</a> originally appeared on <a href="http://www.autoblog.com">Autoblog</a> on Wed, 18 Jun 2014 20:02:00 EST.
