Earl “Madman” Muntz was a salesman and a showman. He owned automotive dealerships nationwide, and built television sets. Allegedly he coined the term “TV” because it was too hard for skywriters to plaster “television” in the clouds. He was so proud of TV that he named his daughter Tee Vee Muntz. He was also the name…
It makes me kind of sad that the new Acura NSX doesn’t seem to be super well-received by the Honda faithful, in large part because it’s so different by the beloved original. The new one is a high-tech spaceship, maybe the best handling car I have ever driven. But if the first NSX’s purity is more your speed, and you…
Say you want a car and you want a motorcycle, but you can only get one because Reasons. So what do you do? At first, you think you’re stuck, but then you realize that you are not, because you could just buy this 1985 Honda City R and Motocompo, in which you get both a car and a bike.
If you have an apartment or house that you simply need filled to the ceiling with automotive swag, auto shows are the best place to get your free and pointless shit. You are handed so much branded crap at these shows that it’s frankly kind of gross. However, hocking brand shit on eBay while the press conferences are…
Last week, we all got to experience the beauty that was, in fact, just an ad for a used Honda Accord. Filmmaker Max Lanman made the commercial to help sell his fiancée’s 1996 Accord, which is worth about $1,500, and it worked: The bids got up to $150,000 before eBay canceled the auction for “illegitimate bidding.”
The BMW E91 was the last wagon that BMW offered with both a manual and rear-wheel drive for the U.S. market. It was a wonderful car, except for the fact that the BMW 328i wasn’t terribly quick. Some hero solved that problem with a turbo N55 out of a BMW 335i and you can buy it.
Initial buyers to Tesla’s most anticipated model yet, the $30,000 Model 3 that’s supposed to bring Tesla to the masses, may be getting cold feet. One eBay seller has chosen to sell their reservation to the highest taker.
Somebody spent seven years working on blending a 1984 El Camino and a 1987 Buick Grand National, and now it’s for sale on eBay for a Buy It Now price of $55,000 with open bidding. Wow.
We’re used to seeing cars listed on eBay. It’s a pretty normal thing. But an all-wood, hand-carved model of a Jaguar E-Type to scale? That’s a new one.
The shoot-down of an F-117 Nighthawk over Yugoslavia, callsign “Vega 31,” is an amazing story unto itself, and it has been claimed that the stealth jet’s wreckage greatly helped foreign countries advance their own stealth technology know-how. It has even led to some unlikely friendships. Now EBay seller “Kols293”…
Ever dreamed of having all the freedom of a Ford Focus, while enjoying the sweet system from a Honda Goldwing? I know, the number of times it’s kept me up at night is too many to count too. Well, now you have your chance...if you can outbid me.
This 1974 Ford Courier is a beautifully preserved example of something you just can't get in America anymore; a truly tiny pickup truck. This one's ready to go to work, and bids are still sitting below four grand in a no-reserve auction as of Friday morning.
There are few bikes more important to Bimota's history as the DB1. It's responsible for saving the company from financial ruin in the 80s, and the upgraded DB1SR is the pick of the litter. Finding one is North America is next to impossible. So finding one that hasn't been out of its crate since getting packed up in…
From Car Buying: A few weeks ago, I asked what cars on eBay under $20k are due to appreciate in the coming years, and you replied with 10 gems that have drained my bank accounts, credit cards, and emergency piggy bank. Having said that, here's 10 more cars that could make you some real cash:

I'm not exactly sure if it's the pictures themselves or the juxtaposition of them together, or maybe it's just the inherent weirdness a ventriloquist dummy brings to any situation. I'm just not sure. But I do know that this ad for a 1977 Corvette Stingray is pleasingly unsettling.
I love wagons; you love wagons. We also love the BMW M5, and when you put the two together you get this wonderful combination of performance and utility. So wonderful in fact you might be able to live in it. Which is probably your only option because it has a Buy It Now price of $29k.
The King of Rock and Roll had a thing for Cadillacs. Presley purchased this 1968 Topaz Gold Firemist Eldorado in December of '67 and made it is his daily driver for many years. When the car didn't work properly, Presley did what any rock star would do...he shot it.
Do you fancy yourself a rally driver? Do you you drink way too much Monster energy beverages? Do you have $125k? If you answered yes, to all of the above this might be the car for you.
