1966 Velorex 16/350 test 2

People in my profession—and outside it, too, I suppose—have always railed against government “interference” in the production of vehicles. Sure, the seat belt was a good idea, but airbags, “safety” bumpers, and—more recently—the laundry list of electronic nannies like automatic braking and stability control?

Bentley Azure possibly returning for limited edition run test 1-1

Bentley currently has one convertible in its lineup, the Bentley Continental GTC; but not too long ago it had a second convertible. Dubbed the Azure, the bigger droptop was based on the Brooklands sedan and brought top-tier luxury to buyers who wanted to feel the wind in their hair. The Azure went out of production several years back, but, if executives at Bentley have their way, the Azure could very well be resurrected for a new generation of well-heeled buyers.


 

B-J's and AA's auctions prove that if you dishonor your Heritage you will pay the price. [Buyers, however, won't even offer half of it.]

B-J's and AA's auctions prove that if you dishonor your Heritage you will pay the price. [Buyers, however, won't even offer half of it.] test 1-1

While the car you see above looks like every other “Heritage Edition” Ford GT, this one hides a terrible secret: Somebody invested a fortune into cutting its value in half. Yes, you read that right. Someone bought one of the ultra-rare and ultra-desirable Gulf-liveried 2006 Ford GTs and basically destroyed it in the most pathetically-ironic way: They turned it into a “racecar.”


Ford GT: Not just another retro car

Ford GT:  Not just another retro car test 1-1

They don't make 'em like they used to, right? Well, it seemed that no one was aware of that in 2005, when the retro car craze was at its peak. Everywhere you looked, there was a new Mustang that looked like an old Mustang, a new Dodge Magnum that looked like an old Hemi station wagon, a new GTO to recall the Goats of days gone by, and even a new Thunderbird to remind you how good the original really was. But, just when you thought you couldn't possibly see one more car that reminded you of a car you already saw years prior, Ford brought the house down with one of, if not, the best retro-themed car ever built:  The Ford GT.


eBay Motors' Top 5 sales top 9.5 million dollars, including a $1M+ Mustang! USA! USA!

eBay Motors' Top 5 sales top 9.5 million dollars, including a $1M+ Mustang! USA! USA! test 1-1

You know the drill. I spend WAY too much time on eBay Motors looking for the most expensive cars sold over a given period, and I amaze you with what people will spend on cars you'll likely never see.

[Sorry, that was rude. Just book a flight to Los Angeles, camp out in the ritziest part of town, and I'm sure at least a version of one of these cars will pass by your sidewalk encampment.]


Two Beetles or not two Beetles: With this pair, only you (and maybe some Brazilians) will know

Two Beetles or not two Beetles: With this pair, only you (and maybe some Brazilians) will know test 1-1

My parent's first cars—and second (I think)—were both VW Beetles. This should come as a shock to no one, seeing as how ubiquitous the car was for decades—right up to the 1990s, it would seem, as my high school girlfriend had one right up until her father made her get a more “practical” car (a Geo Metro!).


Just how far gone is TOO far for a car TWO: Flushing away $99k or shrewd entree into a major payday? The new owner lets us know!

Just how far gone is TOO far for a car TWO: Flushing away $99k or shrewd entree into a major payday? The new owner lets us know! test 1-1

You're not a real automotive enthusiast until you've let a project car you had all the plans in the world for go to someone else for a song, only to find that what you sold for scrap value—if you were lucky—was something truly special.

Like WORTH A LOT special.


A rolling Moss gathers $2.6M in stones at Bonhams' all-Benz auction

A rolling Moss gathers $2.6M in stones at Bonhams' all-Benz auction test 1-1

Bonhams held its appropriately named “The Mercedes-Benz Sale” at just about the best place on Earth they could have—the Mercedes-Benz Museum in Stuttgart, Germany—on March 19, and it was packed with the swoopy, super-expensive 1930s models that made the brand the luxury powerhouse it is today.

Problem is, none of them sold.


Barrett-Jackson to feature the four-ton "Thundertaker" at April Palm Beach sale

Thundertaker custom Cadillac hearse test 2

Not that many people say this very often, but it's probably a good thing that I'm not rich. I would, naturally, spend a large amount of my money on cars, which is not a bad thing, it's just that the cars I'd spend money on wouldn't exactly endear me to the rest of my family.

Granted, having the world's largest collection of station wagons wouldn't be the worst thing for them to inherit, but even with the recent—and forecast—increase in values for wagons, chances are that they'd just break even if they sold the lot.
