Our own Jason Torchinsky hit the nail on the head when he called out Lincoln's silly idea to make a Super Bowl ad "crowdsourced" from tweets about road trips. (I kind of hate myself a little bit for even using that word.)
Whether you're an early Corvette fanatic or just someone who stares at the average closed garage and wonders if it is hiding an automotive treasure it's hard not to get excited about the pictures of this recently unearthed 1961 'Vette.

With Saab's official passing this past week it seems only appropriate to look back at the reflections of the quirky Swedes from a literary great and one time Saab salesman. Kurt Vonnegut owned and operated Saab of Cape Cod until it closed in 1961 in West Barnstable, Ma giving him plenty of time to reflect on the one…
Ford introduced the Econoline to the world in 1961 as the truck with a new shape, new design and new name. Based on Ford's compact Falcon, the Econoline was available as a "panel truck" work loving, fun loving "station bus" and our personal favorite, the pickup truck.

This oddball is currently listed on Ebay looking for another well financed (and slightly…
After being somewhat unappreciated in the collector car world for decades Alfa Romeo Sprint Speciales have skyrocketed in value over the past few years. One look at this beautiful red example currently on Ebay and it isn't hard to see why.

I'm back at the motel for some internet access and maybe a few Zs while tireless Judge Lieberman works the radios at Penalty HQ, so here's your LeMons Fleetwood Update.
Not long ago, one of the 24 Hours Of LeMons perpetrators gave me a big box of Autocar magazines from the 1940s, 1950s and 1960s. Talk about your great British print car ads!
The ringleader drives a T-bucket with six pots, and the gang earns their bread strippin' the squares' sleds. Welcome to 1961's The Choppers!
