eBay Motors will be entering a team of three drivers in the 2012 Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship (BTCC). The team, which consists of Tom Onslow-Cole, Rob Collard, and Nick Foster, is set to participate in three WSR-run turbo-charged BMWs. This marks eBay Motors’ third season in the BTCC, having been a...

We don’t know about you, but we think the perfect way to end the week is by scoring a sweet deal on a new ride—like Jared Schaffer (shown here) did. He got his hands on the keys to a new Ford F150 through AutoNation Direct’s promotion on eBay Motors. Once he saw the listing, he clicked the “Buy It Now” button,...

There are two things you should know off the bat about this gorgeous 1941 Chevy hot rod: Its engine packs an astounding 1,000 horsepower, and it runs on E85 ethanol. This work-of-art on wheels melds the tradition of customizing with “Pro-Mod Street Rod,” and features an engine built by a past National Hot Rod...

This 1972 Skyline is a 100% legal car, according to the seller. It’s not mint—you can see some rust bubbles under the silver respray—but the mods look authentic and expensive. In its native Japan, this car would be snatched up by a collector and, very likely, tricked out in just such a fashion. We love the...

What happens when you get the nation’s largest auto retailer and the world’s largest online marketplace together? A whopping 50% off the MSRP of select new cars! As part of its nationwide launch of AutoNation Direct, AutoNation announced it was selling 32 new vehicles from the likes of Ford, GM, and Nissan (four each...

This 1987 BMW M6 is in remarkable and original condition. It’s reportedly a one-owner car that spent its entire life in Northern California, within a couple hundred miles of the original selling dealer. I like it because it’s still stock — it’s avoided the boy-racer modifications and teenage-induced damage that befell...

This is one tough green car. Until 2010, it was used as a police detective car in Phoenix, Arizona. Complete with ramming bar and a “K9 Interceptor” badge, the seller says this full-size V8 full-frame rear-wheel-drive four-door sedan is built for “severe duty.” The seller promises that while cruising down the...

This Essex Super Six is said to be a museum-quality restoration in black with wine accents. A total of $46k was spent on the restoration of the car, but the seller does not mention when the work was completed. However, we know the work wasn’t done to original specification. Stainless bolts, nuts, exhaust and running...

In a sign of the times—in which all kinds of green vehicle alternatives are fighting for prominence—this 2002 Ford F-350 diesel truck is emblazoned with decals of an electric vehicle plug. But the truck itself runs on waste vegetable oil. Once used by now-bankrupt Bright Automotive—presumably to haul the prototype...

There was once a time when Mercury (while extant) wasn’t Ford’s patsy sibling, when the cars they made commanded respect on the street and when they had fear-inspiring names. Sadly, the ’60s was the last time that happened, unless the Grand Marquis scares you. But this 1965 Park Lane Marauder sports a potent 390-ci V8...

This 1974 TVR 2500M has been under the same ownership since 1978. These cars are rare — only 946 (plus one prototype) were produced during the entire six year run out of Blackpool, England. And they’re even harder to find now, thanks to rust. The car sports TR6 mechanicals, meaning parts are readily more available...

This ’73 Bronco will need some minor sorting like belts, fluids and a brake bleed, but we’d leave the uncut and impressively original shell exactly as it is. The oh-so-’70s green paint and pin stripes are complimented by houndstooth and woodgrain interior, showing an excellent patina from 40 years of light use. The...

Crosley’s best production year was 1948. Over 29,000 cars were made, 23,489 of which were tiny station wagons. This yellow wagon was recently inspected and said to be in running condition. The car has the usual dents and dings and the seller thinks the car has been repainted once. It also has spent a lot of time...

The 2012 Scion iQ is now the most fuel-efficient gas-powered car in America. The iQ knocks the Smart Fortwo of its perch as the high-mpg leader, a position that Smart has held since its introduction in 2008. The iQ gets 36 MPG in the city and 37 MPG on the highway, according to the EPA—beating out the Smart by a...

This 1967 Camaro sits lower and undoubtedly goes faster than Chevrolet intended. Over $40k was put into the car, and the seller states the “majority of the money was spent on the drivetrain.” A provided parts list certainly shows it, including a modified LS1 and T56 6-speed, a custom steel driveshaft, and a...

Somewhere between the sporting British “shooting brake” and today’s modern hatchback is the “Liftback,” most fully realized as a distinct bodystyle in the two-door Corollas of the late 1970s. These mini-wagons were once common but are rarely seen today. This ’77 looks stock in its dated orange paint, factory stripes and...

I love this 911T for a couple of reasons. First, it’s hard to find one-owner vintage 911s like this. Second, in addition to having had just one owner, this 911 comes with a full service history. And last, but not least, it’s a striking Bahama Yellow hue — Porsche color code 110. The T was the only carbureted 911...

The spring car shows are starting to pop up around the country. And if you’re looking to turn heads, nothing stands out more than a wild and crazy street rod. Lead sleds are played out and nearly every show has a dozen ’32 Fords, making pickups are the hottest ticket going right now. This 1950 Chevrolet 3100 has the...

The Morgan Plus 4 debuted in 1950 and experienced minor refinements until the car was discontinued after 1969. The engines were taken straight from the Triumph TR lineup and changed accordingly. If this car still has its original 1965-built engine, it’s a 2.1-liter inline four-cylinder sourced from the TR4. This...
