Remember “Hector?” The guy who was “too slow to make away with the money, man” at the first street race in the first Fast & Furious movie? No? Maybe?
Sometimes movies give us a glimpse into an alternate reality or some possible future. Even the worst of these movies typically offer a look at what the people of these worlds drive. Sometimes the cars are cool, and sometimes they’re a Lexus concept you forgot about in 2002's Minority Report.
Hennessey Performance Engineering is currently the only tuner in North America who owns their own test track—but that could change for the right buyer. Lonestar Motorsports Park, the IHRA-sanctioned quarter-mile drag strip next to Hennessey’s headquarters in Sealy, Texas, is up for sale.
A 35.5 percent stake in Formula One held by CVC Capitol Partners could could have a new owner soon, according to a report by The Sun. Bernie Ecclestone runs the sport for CVC, so could this also be a sign that the 85-year-old may retire soon?
Seriously, if you are looking for a good used F-4, you need to go see Cal. He has lightly used Phantoms, some of them with MiG kills, for outrageous prices and he is even throwing in free Sidewinders and burner can inspections and liquid oxygen top-offs for a year. Aspiring South American dictators with border…
It is always interesting to see what surplus military hardware ends up on the private market. While browsing aircraft classified ads I came across this mint condition, swing-wing Tornado F2A fighter-interceptor for sale. I have never seen one of these beauties on the market, so I had to contact the seller to get the…
Turns out Arnold Schwarzenegger had a vintage Mercedes once. It’s just not a cushy old W108 sedan, that’s all.
One of the stories I received the most emails about last year was my profile on Sea Slice and its liquidation. Dozens of people wanted to know how they could literally buy the ship, many of which were credible. Now, it turns out that Sea Slice is getting a second chance at life after all—and a cool new eco-friendly…
I’ve found it surprisingly difficult to sell my Nissan Skyline GT-R. It isn’t due to a lack of potential buyers. There are many potential buyers. It’s just that most of them think that “ur” is an appropriate way to shorten the word “your.”
Why is this 1964 Saab worth nearly half a million dollars? Because it does Mach 2 and was designed to kill people.
What’s your car good for; 130 MPH? Maybe 150? Whatever, it’s pretty much all the same until you clear 1,000 and for $185,000, this fifty-year-old slab of Soviet metal will get you to the speed of sound. I mean as soon as you figure out how to fly it.
In 1967 the president of Pontiac was shown this LeMans Concept Sport Truck; a 350 V8-powered El Camino with the interior and front end of a Pontiac LeMans. He didn’t like it enough to build it, but at least somebody preserved it.
We can talk about how bad we all want a Jeep Wrangler pickup, how insane it is to spend $178,000 on something just a few short years ahead of a horse-drawn carriage, or we can bask in the glory of what may be the most beast modern Jeep on Earth.
This year certainly wasn’t the first time Porsche won the 24 Hours of Le Mans. Want your very own overall Le Mans-winning Porsche? Look no further! The 1982 Porsche 956 that won the 1983 24 Hours of Le Mans overall—chassis 956-003—goes up for auction at Pebble Beach this year.
After the 24 Hours of Le Mans, I missed my flight and ended up stuck in Paris for an extra day. Since I was in Paris, I decided to at least venture into the city for dinner. Lo and behold, the Toyota storefront on the Avenue des Champs-Élyseés was considerably more interesting than the ones here in America.
At the end of the 1970’s International Harvester had a choice to make; abandon their efforts in the SUV game or revive the “Scout” brand a third time. Allegedly some wild prototypes came out of those brainstorming sessions, like this 1980 Hurst Shawnee which you can have for $175,000.
That’s right, you can go and bid on this intact 1944 P-51D Mustang that has not flown since the 1970s for same price as an entry level base Ford Mustang! This oxidized example of North American’s legendary WWII fighter has been untouched for over ten years but has been stored out of a elements in a hangar.
Who needs an actual scaled-down racer like a Baby Grand or a Legends car when you can just take an arcade model of a NASCAR racer and and plop a 1,700-cc Volkswagen engine in it?
