Joe Clevenger has been a car nut since he was a teenager. But this electrical contractor from Kansas City, Missouri has taken his skills and design to a whole new level. And eBay has always helped out this car guy. After graduating from a vocational high school, Clevenger was hired at a local Chevrolet dealership,...

BidBet.bid is a new mobile-friendly social game, much like fantasy football for auctions. Built by iPropGames, their pilot has gone live just in time for the bidding frenzy known as #MontereyCarWeek that occurs the second week of August every year in Pebble Beach and Monterey, California. Starting Thursday morning,...

Updated: Dec 18, 2013 With the Pontiac brand officially a thing of the past, I’ve noticed a huge increase of Pontiacs in collector’s garages. I’ve also noticed a lot less of them at car shows — the scene seems to be dominated by Mustangs and Camaros (in this class), and it appears that some of the coolest Pontiacs are...

Whether you were in Monterey or not, it’s impossible to take it all in. There’s simply too much to do–with many events overlapping. This year the Classic Motorsports crew was again out and about, and here are some of the highlights. Watch the site, too, for more photos to be added, including those from the all-important...

SKIL lists custom SKILSAW inspired chopper We’re not always about the four-wheeled vehicles here at eBay Motors, so here’s a very special listing for the eBay Motors motorcycle community to watch. SKIL Tools recently celebrated the 75th anniversary of the Worm Drive SKILSAW. Considered by many to be “the saw that...

Despite 15 million examples built during a 19-year production run, an original Model T is a unique sight on roads today. For good reason — anyone with an idea on how driving should be will probably find the three pedals and lack of shift lever disconcerting. A previous owner restored — frame off — this 1922 example...

A Roger Penske-fielded, Mark Donohue- driven AMC Javelin won seven out of 10 races in the 1971 Trans-Am series, taking the overall championship. This 1971 AMC Javelin is “a dedicated recreated vintage Trans Am racer.” The seller says, “No one has ever made one of these in over 40 years to match the level of detail and...

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 we continue our sponsorship of Sonoma Raceway much like we had for NASCAR back in June, this weekend we are present during the NHRA Nationals. As part of this sponsorship and presence this weekend, we are also auctioning off a 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air/150/210 that is currently set at $75,000.

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...

If you’re looking to save money at the pumps, one of the smartest things you can do is to downsize. Keep this in mind: Buying a car that meets, but does not exceed, your need for size and power doesn’t have to be an exercise in self-restraint. A little legroom and horsepower can be traded for a monumental amount of...

This ’69 El Camino is a great balance of utility and tire-melting power. It has the matching-numbers 396-ci engine, but non-original (still correct) Turbo 400 and 12-bolt rear. It’s just the thing to haul that new dishwasher home before heading out to the drag races. Starting in 1969, the SS 396 was no longer a...

Eye-catching Italian designs with tire-smoking American power fill a popular, if small, niche in the collector car market. In the late ’60s and early ’70s, coachbuilders stuffed Detroit iron between hand-formed steel bodies from Torino (Intermeccanica) to Bresso (Iso) to Modena (DeTomaso). The Italia was born from the...

FOUR GARAGES. FOUR CARS. BUILT FROM eBAY. DECIDED BY YOU. ALL FOR CHARITY. eBay Motors presents a garage “throwdown” with you, our viewers, helping select a winner. We challenged four of the best garages in the world, absolute masters in different classes of vehicles, to build the best vehicle from parts and...

Porsche’s 930 is known for explosive power and demanding handling characteristics. The cars were prone to oversteer with their rear-engine layout and short, 89-inch wheelbase. A simple judgment error (like lifting off of the throttle) during high-speed cornering spun many drivers off the road and into the trees. And...

The 2012 Mini Cooper with manual six-speed gearbox gets 29 miles per gallon in the city and 37 on the highway. That’s great mileage for a car that provides such a high quotient of fun and styling. Due to car’s small profile and light weight, its 121 horsepower provides plenty of oomph. The Mini’s legacy of fuel...

A big block and a drop top — is there anything more you want in a full-size cruiser this summer? The seller says this ’67 Fairlane is only a few steps away from being complete. “Only minor mechanical left to finish and the majority is cosmetic.” An air cleaner top might be high on the shopping list, judging from the...

For season 2, modJOBS enlisted Jessica Prokup to put together a one-of-a-kind Yamaha V Star 950 Cruiser with the help of celebrity bike builder Jay Lossa and Last Comic Standing winner Alonzo Bodden. Jessica hand-picked and helped install each custom part with the goal of creating a “custom bagger” that would make any...

This 1942 Ford GPW is the perfect vehicle for tooling around an orchard or storming downtown parking lots. Lay the windshield flat and enjoy the stump-pulling utility — but maybe not inside city limits. As an early GPW, it still has Ford emblazoned on the body — a practice that stopped later in 1942, resulting in...
