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 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!).

Imagine a world where buying a car is a simple as going online, placing an order, and picking out your favorite options. Two days later a delivery truck brings your shiny new vehicle to your front door. That’s it; no car lots, no haggling, and no aggravation. Sound too good to be true? Actually, it’s an accurate picture of how 3-D printing is bringing seismic changes to the automotive world.

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.

Tesla has always been a company known for being a leading figure in innovation, thanks in part to its Model S sedan, as well as its novel direct sales approach. However, according to a new report, Tesla has managed to become a triple threat of innovations when it comes to vehicle production, which could have implications for its upcoming volume entry, the Model 3 sedan.

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.

Alfa Romeo Unveils Giulia and Giulia Ti test 1-1

When the range-topping Giulia Quadrifoglio first made its debut, the 505-horsepower M3 fighter previewed what was in store for the newest Alfa Romeo sedan but did little to reveal what the more mainstream versions would look like. The Italian brand has rectified this omission with the unveiling of the base Giulia and Giulia Ti models ahead of their debut at the 2016 New York Auto Show.

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.
