As the legend goes, Sir Elton John decided to reward himself for the success of “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road” with this shiny new 1972 Ferrari 365GTB/4 Daytona. This car is one of only 158 original right-hand drive vehicles and was supposedly John’s first foray into Ferrari ownership. He sold the car a few years later. It ended up in private collector hands for a few decades. Sir Elton John’s Ferrari Daytona was originally sold at auction by Silverstone in 2017 to private collector James Harris. Sadly, Mr. Harris passed away, but that means this Ferrari Daytona with 4.4-liter 4-cam V12 that develops 352bhp and can hit a top speed of 175mph is once again crossing the auction block at Silverstone at the end of September. This time around, the 1972 Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona is expected to fetch up to $600,000, which is around $75k less than it sold for last time.

Laguiole-Oyster-Knife-IF2

While you can go all MacGyver and shuck oysters with a screwdriver or other household tool, we highly recommend you invest in a good oyster knife. Why? Well, for starters, it’s safer. The best oyster doesn’t taste so hot when you’ve got something sharp stuck in your palm. Secondly, it makes the process easier and a bit more refined. Laguiole is an iconic name in knife making and the French brand has you covered when it comes to shucking thanks to the Laguiole Oyster Knife. Made of 420 stainless steel and complete with a wood handle, the Oyster Knife measures 6 ¼” and makes easy work of even the toughest shell. You just need to supply the cocktail sauce.
