Like many dealerships, an Oregon car lot uses a giant inflatable to draw eyes to its cars. But it looks like the blue gorilla outside of Oregon Auto Center attracted the wrong kind of attention last week—the attention of acid-throwing vandal(s).
The salesman reportedly confused the clutch and brake pedals. That’s not something you want to do with a 650 horsepower Corvette Z06 on the showroom floor.
Who ever said car dealerships had to be bland and dreary? These ten have the right idea.
So you've finally made it to the point where you can treat yourself to a new car. But you're past the point of searching Craigslist for thousand-dollar beaters; it's time to put the big-boy pants on and head to the dealership. Here's how to go car-shopping without getting taken for a ride.
Generally, I don't think cars and guns mix very well, but the owners of this Brookville, OH used car dealership seem to differ. They're offering a voucher for a free handgun and concealed-carry course for anyone who spends $4995 or more at their lot. I guess that's better than a big inflatable gorilla?
The National Automobile Dealers Association is feeling threatened, thanks mostly to the work Tesla has done to set up company-owned stores to sell their cars. That's bad news for independent car dealers, who are now feeling like a cornered animal. Like cornered animals, they're attacking with the tools nature gave…
Now that we're well into 2013, you must be getting pretty of sick of "Gangnam Style." I still can't figure out how a satirical Korean pop song went from a viral video to being a mainstay on American radio, but then again, I can't understand the appeal of dubstep either. Kids these days.
Exciting news out of the United Arab Emirates this week as famed automotive industry icon and noted Fiat enthusiast Jennifer Lopez was tapped to open Audi's latest mega-dealership in Dubai.
A collection of 15 1950-1956 Packards owned by a man who devoted much of his professional life to selling and repairing examples of the orphan car brand will be sold at auction next Saturday.
These days finding a rust-free International Harvester is a nearly impossible task, but as this vintage photo from 1973 shows finding a clean Scout was once as simple as driving down to your local IH dealer.
Although it's hard to imagine when you take a trip down your local row of modern car dealerships, in the early days of imported cars many different brands were sold out of the same dealership. As you can see from this photograph taken in 1971, the result was often a desirable selection of early imports in one place.
Because the last US built Rambler rolled off the assembly line in Kenosha, WI on June 30, 1969 they are largely forgotten by the non automotive obsessed public at large.
If you were looking for a sports car in the early 1960s it appears Coyle-Hampton Motors in El Cerrito, Ca wouldn't have been a bad place to start. We can't find one item on their lot that wasn't a little bit interesting or exotic even when it was a used car.
Nothing says 1980 like a car lot with almost nothing someone in the cult of the automotive obsessed can drool over. Times were dark in the automotive world in 1980—the malaise era was in full swing and there weren't many cars to get excited about.
Nothing says it's 1970s like the line of custom vans sitting in front of Hayward Dodge in Hayward, Ca. We found this gem while looking through the awesome gallery of vintage car dealerships where we found yesterday's picture of Lancaster Lincoln Mercury.
They may have just been used cars back in 1962, but the lineup in front of Lancaster Lincoln Mercury has certainly aged well. Given the opportunity, the chances of us leaving Lancaster Lincoln Mercury without at least the red '58 Desoto and the '57 Plymouth wagon shown here would have been slim to none.
Car dealers, like other businesses, are now a target of overseas hackers looking to make quick money. Why? They're easy prey.
What kind of man turns his BMW dealership into a ghost store of never-sold cars for a decade, maintaining the building like it could open at a moment's notice? A car guy, or so he says.
In the small town of Oakville, Ontario there sits a BMW dealership, abandoned for almost a decade. Inside the doors sit, frozen in time, two 20-year-old BMWs in seemingly mint condition. What happened?
