What is one my favorite car brands ever? Well I’m so glad you asked! So here goes…(drum roll badabadabadabada….)the Pagani.
While the Pagani is shockingly not as well known by non-car enthusiast (Do those actually exist?) but among us auto lovers it’s top-tier. If “Flawless” and “Prestige” had a baby they would call it “Pagani”.
The companies flagship model the ‘Zonda’ (shipped by Nedko) was first available back in 1999. Since the original release numerous editions have been released including the special editions Zonda 760RS, Zonda 760LH and the Zonda 764 Passione back in 2012.
One of the most unique features of the Pagani is its use of carbon fiber, used in the vast majority of their cars’ external materials.
While most Pagani models are not street-legal (in the US) there is one that is – The Pagani Huayra (pronounced: wai-rah). For about $2 million you can own one – OK maybe a little out of my budget but hey it does top at over 230 mph. brwrwrwrwr – I may have just gotten the chills.
This 1954 Chevy 3100 is part of the Chevy series known as the Advance Design. There were a number of changes implemented into series starting in 1947 through 1955. However 1954 had arguably the only significant design change of the entire series. Among those changes included switching from a 2 piece windshield to a more curved one-piece, remodeled steering wheel and dashboard, and of course the grille – remodeled to what is known as the “bull nose” grille.
We shipped one these 54′ Chevy 3100’s for Randy and he could not be happier “Here is my new ride delivered by United Routes. Those guys are great, so if you are as picky as me about your classic cars and trucks, use them. Odessa,Missouri to Kemp, Texas, not a scratch. Thanks, Randy”.
This 1997 Porsche 993 took a nice trip from California to Alabama in an enclosed car transport trailer. Believe or not but this specific car is one of just 3,714 Porsche Carrera S wide body models produced. It is also part of the last batch of air-cooled (engines) produced by Porsche. The Carrera S model, also known as the 4S for the 1996 models, is very similar to the standard Carrera models on the inside but actually has slightly lowered suspension then a standard Carrera. Our customer, Andy, purchased this dream car in San Francisco and yes, we’re a tad bit jealous.
HOT! HOT! HOT! Definitely the only way to describe this insane Ferrari 458 Italia. Heard of Liberty Walk? Owner of LB Performance, a custom exotic performance shop famous for making their very own “Supercars”. Well the 2 owners flew in from Japan to showcase their newest baby. All we had to do was transport the car from Northern California, Palo Alto to be exact, to West Palm Beach, home to the latest Way2Clean auto show. The show took place at the South Florida Fair Grounds Expo Center and featured hundreds of customized classic and exotic vehicles. They even had live music by DJ Nasty of 99JAMZ. Check out a quick clip of the show at the video below.
Aesthetically, I’m already in love with this car but if that’s not enough for you here’s some more details. Taking inspiration from the 1955 Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR Uhlenhaut Coupe & Racecar Mercedes-Benz and McLaren Automotive joined forces to develop this modern piece of art.

David W finally found the car he’d been searching for, the first generation Ford Mustang – the 1967 convertible kind (yes, we’re all jealous) After a thorough inspection he made the purchase, now it was only the matter of actually getting the car to his home in Texas. “I had heard good things about United Routes from other classic car owners. The process was very smooth with good communication with the driver and I even received the car earlier than I expected.”
We had shipped David’s new car from Kentucky to Texas in an enclosed trailer – only the best for the original ‘pony car’. Although this was a convertible, Ford did offer a simpler hard-top version at the time. While many know Ford as the real deal “American” ride, ironically plenty of the assembly was done outside of Detroit, including Venezuela and Mexico. Ford offered models with either an I6 or V8 engine and a three or four speed transmission – with the three speed offered in both manual and automatic
A few weeks ago we transported a 1973 Eldorado for our customer, Gerald. The car was shipped in an enclosed trailer from Carmel, Indiana to Lafayette, Louisiana. After taking one look at it we decided to do a bit more research on this beauties.
Early models of the Eldorado were considered to be top of the food chain as far as Cadillacs go. The 1957-1960 Eldorado Brougham was actually the highest priced cadillac on the market in those years.
In 1967 the car underwent serious design changes intended to further impress the luxury car buyers and by 1971 it was being offered in two different styles. Buyers could opt for either the 2-door coupe or the 2-door convertible option. In 1973 the Eldorado was established as a car series of it’s own, removing itself completely from the “Fleetwood” series it had previously been associated with.
The 1973 version was also chosen as the pace car for the Indy 500. Sales grew immediately to 51,451
Bill Harrahs insane car collection actually features a 73 cadillaic Eldorado which was owned by Elvis at one point – Elvis then gave it to his karate teacher (he probably threatened to kick his ass if he didn’t).
1973 Eldorado Car Specs: 500 cu in (8.2 L) V8 engine 3-speed automatic transmission 126.3 in wheelbase 223 inch lengh 79.8 in width 54.2 inch height Assembled in New Jersey and Michigan
Laguna Beach, CA here we come. There is very few things more beautiful then the good old west coast but we found one. This 1958 Mercedes 300D Adenauer 4 door convertible is definitely one of them. We provided Peter with a covered car transport from NJ all the way to CA. We may or may not have stayed for a quick dip in the Pacific – Don’t tell our bosses!
Classic Car Transport Specs of the Week | 58′ Mercedes 300D Adenauer • 4 Door Convertible • Hardtop Configuration • 180 PS (130 kW; 180 hp) at 5500 rpm • Additional 4 inches wheelbase (as compard to the 300c) • Auto transmission
Once again, our enclosed auto transport service has put a smile on our customers face. Dena was very excited to receive her newest purchase. When we say excited, we mean literally jumping for joy. Why, you ask? Well We’ll let her do the talking, “because it is a 65 Chevrolet Chevelle Malibu SS and almost 50 years old & not to mention… Just downright beautiful!!”
“United Routes LLC transported our 65 Chevelle because we purchased from a gentleman in New Jersey. We live in Texas so it was quite a trip for us to make ourselves. United Routes hooked us up!!”
The car was delivered a day early “and our driver, Gary, was an absolute sweetheart and very pleasant at 7am in the morning!”
•Chevrolet Chevelle was produced in 3 generations for the 1964 – 1977 model years •The Chevelle SS represented Chevrolet’s entry into the muscle car battle. •Chevelles with the mid-1965 Z16 option, priced at US$1,501 in 1965 •The available 283-cubic-inch four-barrel V8 engine rated at 220-horsepower was the same rating as the 1957 Chevy Power-Pak 283 engine.
United Routes was able to ship this 2009 Rossion Q1 in an enclosed trailer from California to North Carolina.
As you can see from the above pictures George’s car ain’t your typical street beast.
The Rossion Q1 is a product of Ian Grunes and Dean Rosen’s commitment to fusing luxury, design and sporty power. While still difficult to come by, back in 2011 a used Rossion Q1 was selling out of NJ for only $63,999. A recent offer we found was for $78,000 with under 1000 miles driven.
It’s been noted by roadandtrack.com “Cottage-industry coupe has the power-to-weight chops to take on a Ferrari F430.” Considered to be one of the lightest cars in its class with a weight-to-power ratio of 6.3:1.
