The recent Classic car event held along Emaar Boulevard, right here in Dubai, has inspired our dreaming capabilities. To start with, we believed that a sizeable chunk of $$ had been happily gifted to us by a good friend of c&p.com. The challenge was to purchase a car that had history, was beautiful, was a sure fire investment and more importantly was Italian. Result of the hours spent hawking the internet?

The Ferrari 250 LM! The car that stood to one side allowing the Shelby Cobra to dominate the then GT Championship, is beauty draped in a red dress. Timeless, utterly stunning and thanks to DK Engineering in the UK – who have put this great short clip together – you too can dream as much as we have been.

For Phil it's all about the car, the quality of content and the story. Having experienced life on both sides of the automotive business, the unbridled urge to set up his own unique motoring website led to crankandpiston.com being founded in his spare room. The rest as they say is history.
