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 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.

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.

FCA Design Chief Ralph Gilles Sketches Pacifica Hellcat test 1-1

FCA design chief Ralph Gilles has always been known for having a strong imagination as well as an intimate connection with what enthusiasts want in a performance vehicle. He demonstrated both of these traits by publishing a sketch on his official instagram account that previews what a Hellcat-powered Pacifica would look like, if it somehow made its way to production.

Pizza Guy's Camaro Lost, Found, Lost and Found Again test 1-1

If you only had a crystal ball, you could have avoided some mistakes that came back to haunt you later when you had gained additional knowledge. Along these lines, I would imagine that just about everyone has sold something that they wish they had back at some point in time.

Muscle Cars Save Lives test 1-1

There is a quote that you see on bumper stickers and T-shirts that goes something like this: “If I have to explain it to you, you won't understand.” Up until now, this has applied to muscle cars, but we will provide a public service announcement later in this article that changes everything.

Rental Camaro test 2

I have done a great deal of traveling throughout my life, and I have found that renting a car is kind of fun. You explore your options when you are making the reservation, and you have decisions to make with regard to the price. You can go the economy route, but if you are willing to dip into your wallet, you a have the opportunity to get behind the wheel of a car that you have always wanted to drive.

National Odometer Day test 2

When you buy a new motor vehicle, whether it is really new or just new to you, the right way to go will depend upon your objectives. There are those who want to buy their dream cars, and they don't necessarily think about the long run, because they intend to trade up before the cars rack up too many miles.

Bumper Car test 2

There is something about driving that captures your imagination from an early age. Children naturally imitate things that their elders are doing, but driving is in an entirely different category. When I was a kid, I was mesmerized by the power that my parents had when they were behind the wheel.


Hybrid or Hellraiser? 2015 Lexus CT200h vs. 2013 Mazda Mazdaspeed3

Hybrid or Hellraiser? 2015 Lexus CT200h vs. 2013 Mazda Mazdaspeed3 test 1-1

In most Hybrid or Hellraiser columns, I start by making a tasteless poop joke about hybrid drivers, then end by trying to convince you that driving a gas-guzzling muscle car will somehow make you a better person. But I'm not going to do that this time. Because small hatchbacks like the 2015 Lexus CT200h and 2013 Mazda Mazdaspeed3, actually offer everything that you need to live a rewarding life. Sort of like Metamucil for the Soul! (oh crap, I just made a poop joke) Anyway, it’s time to figure out if you should drive the pricey hybrid, or the insane used alternative...
