The Touareg: the VW Group midsize SUV for those too poor to afford an Audi Q7 or Porsche Cayenne. Or that's what most people think. And God forbid you mention your Touareg has a diesel. Most people will keep standing there just long enough to drop their gaze to see if you're wearing socks with your Birkenstocks and invent a sick family member/pet/head-of-state they have to visit—like right now—before they sprint away from you.

Now, don't panic. I know the list of Mecum's Ferrari/Maserati apex predators alone won't spend all of your quarter-billion-dollar inheritance from your granduncle Archibald, but I promise you will be able to spend it all in one place, between August 18th and 20th, to assemble the greatest collection of modern mega-dollar performance cars as his will requires.

My condolences. I heard about your granduncle Archibald's passing. Not to be rude, but wasn't it odd that a recluse who lived in a decommissioned missile silo in the middle of Nowheresville had a quarter-billion-dollars' worth of gold bullion stockpiled? I mean, it's good for you, as you're his sole heir. What? You get the money only if you spend it all in one place, between August 18th and 20th, to assemble one of the greatest collections of mega-dollar performance cars?

These days, with cries of America First, Made in America, and Buy American heard from all parts of the country, there are those who insist on American-made automobiles. That’s MADE in America, not just assembled. The point was that things made in the U.S. help the economy here, and provide jobs and wages and opportunities to actually be able to afford the products we produce. Lots of people laughed at that idea; globalization and free trade were taking jobs and money out of the country, and that finding a car that was really made in America or could be called an American car was no longer possible. Well, that is true; however, there are cars that are almost all-American, and that should count for something.

Many young people today are completely unaware of the one time existence of the Pontiac division of General Motors. This division, which dates back to 1926, is named for a Native American chief who also lent his name to the city of Pontiac, Michigan. The Pontiac name became a deeply embedded part of the American automotive landscape for many decades, but the company decided to scrap the division in 2009 during the height of the financial crisis of that era.

Looking for all the minimalist excitement of an Ariel Atom at a discount AND don't fear death? Then have I got the vehicle for you!
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?
