2011 Toyota Camry: What You Need to Know

  2011 Toyota Camry: What You Need to Know The 2011 Toyota Camry finishes near the top of our midsize car rankings thanks to its outstanding reliability rating, supple ride, and generous amount of cabin space. However, it has below-average safety scores, numb handling, and mundane interior styling. The 2011 Toyota Camry is ranked: #2 in 2011 Affordable Midsize Cars #10 in Used Midsize Cars under $15K Is the 2011 Toyota Camry a Good Used Car? Yes, the 2011 Toyota Camry is a good used car. It isn’t the most athletic or stylish choice in the midsize car class, but it’s a sensible one.

AW: Why F1 and not some other form of motorsports?

JG: As a collector, I am very passionate about racing cars, particularly F1. Nevertheless, I also collect GT cars, prototypes, and racing bikes.

AW: How did you pick the specific F1 cars in your collection?

JG: I particularly focus on the driver's record and history, as well as the features of the car and the record of the team behind it. My F1 heroes are Ayrton Senna, Michel Schumacher, Mika Häkkinen, Fernando Alonso, Alain Prost, Lewis Hamilton, and Jenson Button.

AW: How does one go about buying an F1 car?

JG: As a racing car collector, you must search for cars in different countries, starting in Europe where all the racing teams are located, and especially in the United Kingdom. You can start looking at auction houses and in magazines, or you can work directly with racing teams or private collectors.

AW: I assume they are relatively expensive?

Museum Helgoland Open again

 Museum Helgoland Open again After a multi-month conversion phase, the Museum Helgoland is open on time for the start of the summer season. You have used the time of Lockdown to completely rebuild and reassign the exhibition, Museumsleiter Jörg Andres said. "It was time." © Marcus Brandt / DPA A Börtboot and a Hummer Bude (Rear R) can be seen in the Museum Helgoland. The museum was founded more than 20 years ago and it was slowly built up a collection.

JG: Every collector knows that the conditions of the car as well as its history have value, in addition to the sentimental value a collector may assign to each car and the availability of cars in the market. Understandably, a collector will try to purchase a car at an attractive price with the potential to appreciate in value in the short-, medium-, and long-term.

AW: Do you ever drive them?

JG: The cars in this collection are late F1 models, and they all have extremely narrow cockpits, so unfortunately, I don't fit in them. Some years ago, I owned a 1973 shadow F1 model DM1, formerly driven by George Follmer and Jackie Oliver, and I loved to race it. I raced it in vintage events across the United States east to west coast.

AW: What's that like? Is it as cool as we all imagine?

JG: It is an incredible experience to have the opportunity to drive an F1 car. You drive sitting very close to the ground, and when driving on a curve, the wheels provide an impressive grip, and all this provides you with a sense of security. With regards to speed, you are so focused while you drive these cars that you forget how fast you are actually going and you just keep pushing for more and more speed, trying to make the best lap time. You feel an adrenaline rush and it is something you never forget.

AW: How did your collection come to be in the Petersen? Did they ask you?

JG: Ever since the Petersen Museum opened its doors, I have been a constant visitor. I have admired every single car collection the museum has exhibited. My son and I are currently members of the museum, and I know some of the museum's executives and board members, both as friends and collectors. Last year, while we were under lockdown due to the COVID-19 pandemic, I reached out to the museum to offer my F1 car collection for display. I have always dreamed of exhibiting some of my collection cars at the Petersen, and this dream has now come true with this exciting exhibition. I hope that many people take this opportunity to visit the Museum and that the exhibition contributes to growing the passion and interest in F1.

You can get tickets and information on the F1 exhibit at the museum’s website, Petersen.org.

How to Buy a Car Right Now, Without Overpaying .
If you’ve driven by a car dealership lately, you’ve seen it with your own eyes: There just aren’t many cars available right now. Continuing effects from the COVID-19 pandemic are pummeling automakers with parts shortages and other production disruptions. As auto plant shutdowns drag on, the number of cars on dealer lots continues to dwindle. At the same time, demand for new cars continues to surge. More shoppers chasing fewer new cars means one thing: Skyrocketing prices for new vehicles. Prices of used cars have risen substantially in turn, as many new car buyers have turned to the pre-owned vehicle market.
