What Car Is Superman Trashing On The Action Comics No. 1 Cover?

Superman's been on minds lately, what with that new movie and the story of a man finding an original Superman-introducing 1938 Action Comics 1 in the walls of his house, and that's got me thinking. You know what else is on the cover of Action Comics 1, other than a very strong man in ankle boots and a bodysuit? A car. » 5/23/13 12:25pm 5/23/13 12:25pm

Proof used car dealerships were a lot more interesting in 1962

They may have just been used cars back in 1962, but the lineup in front of Lancaster Lincoln Mercury has certainly aged well.

PCH, Off-Brand Station Wagon Edition: Firedome or Provincial?

Some grumbling about the non-wagon nature of yesterday's Choose Your Eternity poll (which was won, unsurprisingly, by the '38 Traction-Avant) was heard around these parts, but I usually write PCH posts the night before... and the Maximum Wagon Day thing just sort of happened without warning.

Project Car Hell: '50 DeSoto or '55 Packard?

Since I'm already scouring Craigslist every day for my next project (having come dangerously close to taking a shot at the 20R Austin-Healey) and running across all sorts of potential Choose Your Eternity project cars, we might as well keep the series going for another day (looks like the Biscayne hearse edged out the… » 7/24/07 5:45pm 7/24/07 5:45pm
