The Chevrolet Corvair has to be one of my favorite American cars. It was bold and innovative, remaining America’s only real mass-produced rear-engined, air-cooled car. Oh, and also America’s only mass-produced horizontally-opposed engine. Michael McKeel must agree, because he has hundreds of them, which his neighbors…
You know that saying about the things we own, and how they eventually end up owning us? For 60-year-old Mike Hall, who owns a collection of over 340 cars, this may very well be the case.
Syrian car collector and enthusiast Mohammed Mohiedin Anis fled his home city of Aleppo last year when the battle for the city intensified as government forces pushed out rebel fighters. He returned this year to find his home and his collection of 30 classic cars in ruins.
Ron Hackenburger has been collecting cars for about 50 years. He’d always wanted to make his own automotive museum, but things didn’t quite turn out that way. Even so, his collection is wonderfully diverse and full of all kinds of great, interesting cars, many of which may end up in museum collections after all.
Developer Bruce Makowsky’s $250 million Bel Air estate is supposedly the most expensive “house” to ever go on sale in the United States. It comes with everything your house has, like a bowling alley and $200,000 worth of candy, but it also includes a $30,000,000 car collection and the helicopter from Airwolf.
When German Jalopnik reader Andreas (TheSafetyEngineer) told me he knew a guy near Nuernberg who hoarded Mitsubishis, I figured he was talking about someone who was in over his head with maybe five or six Lancers pouring out of his driveway. Boy, was I wrong. It turns out the ultimate Mitsubishi stash isn’t in Japan,…
If you’re not familiar with Adam Carolla, he’s the comedian, director, and rich-as-all-hell car guy that apparently has a soft spot for old Lamborghinis. Well, had, as he’s now selling his entire collection to anyone with a spring in their step and pockets deeper than the Marianas trench. You probably can’t afford…
The garages of Beverly Hills are pretty much all full of fabulous cars all the time. But only one is LeMans-themed, and has hot rods, motorcycles, a 1929 Bentley, and a wooden speed boat.
Nestled deep in the heart of Miami’s gentrifying Wynwood Arts District, in between the impressive graffiti murals and the roving packs of homeless, sits an incredible enclave of automotive excellence.

The name of Abu Dhabi’s Hamad bin Hamdan Al Nahyan is probably not new to car lovers, nor to Mercedes-Benz. But I bet you’ve never seen the Rainbow Sheikh’s extravagant collection quite like this before. Take a tour!
Every inch of Dennis Erickson’s home was covered in cars. On the beds, on the floors, in the bathrooms. He had 30,000 cars, from the smallest miniatures to full-sized working classics. And now he doesn’t have to deal with them any more. His church does.
The Gooding & Company’s East Coast auction on Friday featured more of Jerry Seinfeld’s ultra-rare cars than you could count on both hands, and he sold them for more money than any of us could count, even as a group effort. That auction pull included profit from all but one of Seinfeld’s cars, which failed to sell.
By now the world knows about the three rare Porsches Jerry Seinfeld put up for sale, but the reality is that tomorrow, you can actually buy pretty much the entire Jerry Seinfeld Collection at Gooding & Company’s East Coast auction. Here are all his special cars up for grabs.
Rudy Mancinas is a Texan wishing to have a 964 and a 993 Porsche 911 in each color Stuttgart offered it in the catalog. And judging by eGarage’s film, he is getting there just fine.
While we told you before that a hot rod Porsche 964 is the only fast car you’ll ever need, if you have the means to go further, why stop there? eGarage is here to present you the amazing Ingram Collection.
If you worship speed, then taking a trip to Europe always means cramming in as many car things as you can before you head back to your own dreary, boring continent. For me this year, that meant going to the 24 Hours of Le Mans. But with one day free before I went home, I stumbled onto a place in Frankfurt called the …
Yesterday, we asked you for the coolest car collectors in the world. Not the coolest car collections, or the biggest car collections, or which guy made you laugh one time 27 years ago. I, perhaps naively believing that we had all taught you over the years what implicitly was Cool and what was emphatically Not Cool,…
