Four KISS-themed Mini Cooper S Countryman all4–wheel drive vehicles are being auctioned off to benefit Japanese storm victims and children all over the world.   Each car...

When it comes to muscle car sainthood, several option codes leave the rest behind: the Corvette L88, R-code Mustangs, and Mopar’s R-code Hemi engine—but none of them were as purpose-built as the Z/28 Camaros. The factory option (RPO) code Z/28 meant an exclusive engine—a 302-ci, 290-hp powerplant that qualified it for...

The original Bumblebee Transformer Autobot was a yellow VW Beetle, but the 2007 “Transformers” movie turned him into a Camaro. The current owners—for 15 years—of this yellow-and-black 1976 Beetle convertible reached back in pop-culture time for a set of vanity plates reading BUMLBE. This Beetle’s condition is far...

This 1964 Chrysler 300 shows just 18,274 miles, and the seller claims the miles are actual since new. The “barn find” car has not run since 1991, but the seller says the engine “runs fine, sounds very good, blows no smoke,” and he has plans to “yard-drive it” after the fuel lines and gas tank are cleaned out. The car...

Want something to stand out amongst the red-and-white Nomads and otherwise anonymous station wagon crowd this Memorial Day weekend at the beach?  Think pink. Or in this case, think Rosewood and faux wood. Mercury’s Colony Park was the wagon variant for the gadget-laden Turnpike Cruiser.  It sports the 368-ci 290-hp V8...

Looking for an iconic classic you can use on a regular basis? When it was first released, Enzo Ferrari reportedly called the E-type the most beautiful car ever made, and the Museum of Modern Art has one in its permanent design collection. And in terms of a driver, a later car like this is a great choice. The 4.2-liter...

This two-tone Rebel wagon is described as a “true unmolested survivor” with no customizations or modifications. The options list hits the important bullet points of power steering, power brakes, and air conditioning, which reportedly functions correctly now, having been fixed by the seller when he acquired the car...

Looking for the lowest, roughest, loudest thing on four wheels? Whether you call this a Rat Rod, a Hot Rod, or a Custom, this Model A certainly makes a statement—and you won’t ever see another just like it on the road.

If it’s extreme utility you’re after, then look no further than a Unimog. These things will take you anywhere you want to go, and when you’re there, you’ll be able to plow a field with the PTO or haul a cord of wood in the back. Try that in a Jeep CJ. This big ol’ Mog shows abundant patina, but reportedly “runs and...

Want a gas-sipping classic car for your collection? This 1969 Corona looks like a clean, complete California original. The only modification noted is a slightly lowered suspension, which I think just enhances the car’s shrunken dimensions. These cars were never preserved when new—they were just purchased for their...

Whether it’s a parts hauler, a tow vehicle, or a show piece itself, a pickup can be one of the most useful vehicles you’ll ever own. This 1962 Ford F-100 is a great example of a turning point in American truck design, when truck comfort was starting to be explored by the Big Three.  And what that meant to Ford in 1962...

Looking for an affordable British sports car? 1968-74 MGBs tend to get lost in the MG shuffle. They’re not like the 1967 and earlier versions, which didn’t have to answer to U.S. safety and emissions regulations. But they’re certainly not the rubber-bumpered 1975-and-later wheezers. These cars offer decent performance...

The Automotive Road of Dreams Museum, which acquired the Pierce-Arrow from race legend Andy Granatelli’s automobile collection, is auctioning off the silent film star’s luxury mobile, along with eight other rare...

’70s Camaros may be best remembered for leaky T-tops, plastic noses, wheezy engines, and saggy doors, but the earlier years of the generation sported much cleaner lines, more powerful V8s, and RS models had smiling split-bumper grilles. The seller claims this car is one of 8,733 Z/28s from 1970—just 7.4% of the total...

Excess is a word that most of the modern world is far from achieving. The majority of regular people would struggle to afford a BMW X5, but this is a problem that the rich and famous don’t need to worry about. From a couple hundred grand to a couple mill, there’s nothing out of bounds for the wealthy – and they like...
