Why the straight-six engine is making a comeback

The V8 engine has long ruled the world of luxury cars, thanks to glass-smooth grunt and a delicious howl under duress. But tightening fuel-economy regulations are encouraging the use of smaller piston counts, and on the standardized tests that automakers use for fuel-efficiency ratings, the average downsized, turbocharged V6 uses less fuel than an equally powerful V8. That may seem win-win, but don’t be won over. Engineers don’t fantasize about V6s—accountants do. The V6 layout has proliferated because it “packages well,” a sexless industry term that’s code for “easy to…

One Man’s Collection of 700 Unusual Cars Is Going Up for Auction

This summer, in Norwalk, Ohio, VanDerBrink Auctions will sell off more than 700 cars in a massive weekend-long event. But unlike other large auctions that take place around the country, there will be only one seller, a man named Ron Hackenberger. VanDerBrink Auctions Since 1962, Hackenberger has been building his collection. Back then, he was a truck driver, which gave him plenty of opportunities to scout out old cars. When he started his own trucking company, it freed him up to bring a lot more cars back home with him….

Auto sketches from Detroit’s golden era you were never meant to see

An upcoming documentary, “American Dreaming,” focuses on a crew of relatively unknown—at least by name—heroes of mid-century America, the car designers at swaggering American brands like General Motors, Chrysler, AMC, Studebaker, and Packard. These people were responsible for stunning feats of American mid-century modern design, finned Cadillacs, aggressive AMCs and clean Fords, as crucial to the creation of an American aesthetic as Frank Lloyd Wright houses or Bill Blass suits. But unlike the design sketches of architects or fashion designers, the early artwork of car designers was routinely destroyed by…

Five of The Most Expensive Abandoned Car Lots in The World

It’s a tragedy when we hear stories of beautiful cars sitting in garages rotting away leaving nothing but a rusted glimpse into what should have been cherished, enjoyed and out exploring the open road. Whether new and never sold or old classics left and forgotten, ordinary daily-driver, classic cars to exotic supercars; a large supply of cars have been abandoned across the world. The reasons of abandonment range. For example, in Dubai and under Sharia Law it is illegal to not pay your debts. Therefore, many citizens flee abandoning their…

The World’s Top 6 Most Expensive Abandoned Cars

Some years ago, I spotted a then-current Jaguar XJR in a car park underneath London’s Four Seasons Hotel, covered in a thick layer of dust. As it turns out, the car was on loan to the hotel from Jaguar themselves, who, once I’d told them about the state of the car, weren’t best pleased with the condition in which it had been kept. Each of the cars on this list were either forgotten (like the XJR), or purposefully ditched by their owners in potentially nefarious circumstances. We’ve excluded barn finds…

EPIC MUSCLE CAR BARN FIND! SUPERBIRD, TALLADEGA, SPOILER UPDATE!

It seems likely the most valuable barn find ever in the history of the automobile, just based on the number of cars and their rarity. Finding this many rare cars in one place is not likely to ever happen again! The crown jewel of the find is obviously the Plymouth Superbird, a car designed and built by Plymouth to lure Richard Petty back to the manufacturer during his NASCAR heyday. The car was built in extremely limited numbers just for stock car racing, and featured a 426 CID Hemi with dual four-barrel…

This Near-Perfect Tucker 48 Might Be a $2.1-Million Bargain

Last week, we featured the closest thing to a bargain that you’ll find in the Tucker world–an example built from three different cars, listed for sale at $1.1 million. But, if you want a fully-numbers-matching Tucker, the same dealer is offering that too. It’s Tucker #046, and it’s yours for $2.1 million. Nostalgic Motors A significant amount of money, but that’s the going rate for original Tucker 48s, especially when they’re in such great condition. The car is fresh off a no-expense-spared restoration where the engine and gearbox were rebuilt,…

Two Brand-New Buick Grand Nationals Were Just Found In Some Dude’s Garage

You’d think all the old cars wasting away in barns and garages would be found, but there’s always more out there. Take for example these two 1987 Buick Grand Nationals. They look like, well, two Grand Nationals, but their story is much more remarkable. According to a post from Facebook user William Avila, he and his friend Shawn Matthews found these two cars in a small Oklahoma town, where they were listed for sale as a pair for $200,000. Avila knew he wouldn’t pay that much for a Grand National,…
