This remarkable 1920 Ford Model T runs on electricity. According to the seller, who has been a collector for more than 45 years, it’s the only electric Model T he has ever seen. Ford originally built the vehicle to run as a conventional gas-powered vehicle, but sometime in the past few decades, the original engine...

As the go-to bedroom car poster for boys growing up in the ’80s, the easily recognizable Lamborghini Countach wedge shape and sharp angles became synonymous with fast and luxurious living. This 1985 Countach is said to be one of only 37 produced with factory fuel injection tuned by Jasjit Rarewala of Lamborghini North...

Getting the news I was going to be driving the eBay Motors car in the final rounds of GRC was awesome, its been fantastic so far this season with the support from Serve and Best Buy but to get eBay as the primary sponsor for the final two races is great. I’m delighted with the look of the car; the wrap and colour...

This 1964 Chevy Corvair Monza Spyder is a 77k mile survivor, sporting its original black paint and even its original 1964 Virginia plates. The seller says a repaint would get the car to show like new again, but how many 1964 survivors are left? If they weren’t scrapped, they’ve probably been restored. Highlights of...

Near perfect pit stops, good tire management, and a difficult course for...

Not all the action takes place on the track this weekend at the Red Bull U.S. Grand Prix taking place in Monterey. If you are watching the Moto GP this weekend, chances are you are 300 feet or more from the track and the riders are about the size of an RC car from that distance. Get up close and cheer on the stunt...

140,000 spectators are expected over three days for the Red Bull U.S. Grand Prix. The 2012 season has reached its halfway point and the race at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca marks the second part of the season, which will decide one of the most disputed MotoGP™ titles in recent years. This will be the 14th time the...

Photo Credit: Hunter Hi, I am Hunter, I’ve been following the MotoGP coverage you guys are doing and thought I’d contribute a brief story about my eBay Motors and Motorcycle enthusiasm. For a little background, my history began with eBay Motors when I was 16 years old here in Tennessee when my Mother started an...

Today, our eBay Motors team is attending both the MotoGP race at Laguna Seca in Monterey, California as well as the NHRA Nationals at Sonoma Raceway. We’ll have our teams available to ask questions at both events throughout the weekend as we’re sponsoring these races. The question we’d like to know most from you is,...

Square Broncos have a huge following, as they’re simple, rugged, and had a long production run. But most Broncos for sale today have had some sort of modification from stock – either a lift or cut fenders to fit larger tires, or bigger engines for more torque while out on the trail. So original-looking Broncos like this...

After a long, but scenic 15 hour drive from San Francisco the team and I were looking forward to Round 5 of the Formula Drift Championship at Evergreen Speedway. It’s one of the fastest tracks we visit and the fans always give us sold out show! Having one of the most powerful cars in Formula Drift, I was excited to...

When the 2013 Ford C-Max Hybrid goes on sale this fall, most American consumers are likely to ask, “What’s a C-Max?” That’s a fair question, considering that the model is new to the U.S. market—not only as a new nameplate, but as a different kind of vehicle altogether. One immediate distinction is that it’s Ford’s...

When the Plymouth Road Runner hit the streets in 1968, Pontiac was caught off-guard. Their GTO had started the muscle car movement, but here was Mopar, taking up a large part of the market with a low-priced low-option entry that was a real performer. Pontiac needed something with a lot of flash that resonated with...

Want a lot of fast, off-road fun? Bruce Meyers’ creation is the original fiberglass dune buggy. It spawned many imitators, with an estimated 300 companies producing 250,000 copies and near copies. And for good reason — the Meyers Manx beat Corvettes and Cobras in its class at Pike’s Peak Hill Climb and won 39 of 41...

Teardown is done, now the hard work really begins. With the cars stripped down and exposed, all four teams now have a better idea of how to tackle their project cars — EXCEPT Team European Car. Currently in 3rd place, can this team pull together a winning car? Watch episodes 3 & 4, register to win a $5,000 dream garage...

Looking at the past three races, Alonso takes the win at the European GP, he starts at pole position and places second at Silverstone for the British GP, and...

There is no doubt HEMI is king of the hill for Mopar lovers. No word inspires more awe and reverence. Aerodynamics weren’t necessarily a priority for making Chrysler’s muscle cars into racing legends. But the HEMI V8 produced enough power to get flying bricks like this Coronet down the quarter mile faster than most...

Ok, so the seller of this ’50 Ford pickup admits that it’s too perfect to qualify as a rat rod, but the influence is obvious and awesome, and the unusual result is totally successful. I love the brutally low stance, super wide Mickey Thompson Sportsmans, minimal chrome and custom lace paintwork on the roof. I could...

This past weekend, we attended the Jaguar Alive Driving Experience here in Alameda, California, just an hour North of our headquarters and what an incredible experience this was! So what is this experience all about you ask? This is an exclusive invite-only event running throughout the United States that brings the...
