Your Unclaimed Baggage Gets Re-Sold In Alabama

In spite of the fact that many airlines make you pay to check a bag when you fly, about one half of one percent of checked luggage goes unclaimed. And since 1970, one store in Alabama has made a name for itself by buying up those unclaimed bags, sight unseen, and then sells your stuff for a profit. » 10/15/14 12:46pm 10/15/14 12:46pm

Brits Lose Collective Mind: Fiat 500 Goes For Nearly $400,000

Fiat 500s sell for around $16,000 to $22,000 USD. A little high, perhaps, but not unreasonable. Fiat 500s with some artist's scribbles all over the place apparently sell for around £200,000 (or about $390,540 USD with today's kick ass exchange rate). That's practically brain numbing. Yep, some English artist named… » 6/10/08 4:00pm 6/10/08 4:00pm

Sundoulos Sportstar: Twin Harley Powered Weirdness

What do you do if you design up a car for the ALMS series only to have rules changes make it obsolete before you can even put it on the track? Most people would scrap it, but Sundoulos repurposed it for street use. This would be just another nutty boutique car but for the power source. They could have dropped a… » 2/25/08 12:30pm 2/25/08 12:30pm

Look Out Johnny Fairplay: Danny Bonaduce Auction at SEMA

How Danny Bonaduce went from being a cute, redheaded bass player to the scariest individual outside of San Quentin is a mystery for the ages. Well, not as much a mystery as the confluence of Colombian cocaine, anabolic steroids and intense upper-body workouts. Nonetheless, the redheaded bodyslammer of marginal… » 10/31/07 1:29pm 10/31/07 1:29pm

Car Spy Photographer Brenda Priddy Auctions Off Jaguar XF Prototype…

A-list car spy photographer (and sometimes Jalopnik contributor) Brenda Priddy's always one to use her unique "star-like" status in the industry to make some dough for those less fortunate. Just as an example, last year she put herself in "jail" to look for some straight-to-charity bail money. This year however, she's… » 8/08/07 12:30pm 8/08/07 12:30pm
