The Abandoned Dealership Full Of Classic Cars

All across this great nation of ours, there are countless buildings like the one featured in this video from the Amesie’s Automotive Corner YouTube channel. In a small town in New Hampshire stands an abandoned car dealership that still has several cars both inside and out. The cars clearly aren’t for sale and the property is surrounded by signs warning against trespassing. Clearly somebody out there has some sort of plan for these cars, but it seems they’re letting time take a significant toll on them while waiting to carry out that…

Modded Chevy Truck Might Be The Craziest Thing We’ve Ever Seen

Even though we understand why some people enjoy sitting as far away as possible from the nose of their car, this guy definitely took that concept to ridiculous extremes – if that was indeed his intention. At the same time, this is also a very interesting mod, seen as how you’re not going to find anything similar roaming the streets, no matter where you live. According to the thread, the truck was spotted in Elyria, Ohio, and all we have is this photo evidence of its existence. No word on…

Grandma’s Lambo Uncovered From Storage After 2 Decades

Remember how it feels when your grandparents handed over something that you’d find utterly useless in this modern age? Like an encyclopedia or a pager, perhaps? Well, that’s not always the case, especially if that something is a 1981 Countach. Or should have been Countach! based on the story behind its name. A Reddit user eriegin is in this situation recently, after he stumbled upon a Lamborghini owned by his grandparents. We can only imagine the surprise and delight when he uncovered this classic Italian masterpiece from his grandma’s storage. The 1981 Countach was previously owned by his late grandpa,…

North Carolina contractor stumbles upon hidden hoard of pre-war cars

When he was hired to demolish an old building and clear out a property in North Carolina, contractor David Mount surely didn’t know he’d stumble across a treasure trove of 1930s cars. Mount’s daughter, not quite driving age herself, spotted the first car, which was stored inside in a basement garage before the ceiling gave way. The only thing visible was a bit of grille and a pair of headlights under a pile of debris. It was unearthed to reveal that it was a remarkably intact 1933 Plymouth roadster, complete…

Return of the inline-six: Why the classic engine layout is making a comeback

Nearly 70 years since it was blown away by the high-compression Oldsmobile Rocket V8, the inline-six engine is poised to make a comeback. I’m not the first to connect these dots, but the reason for the return of the inline-six has everything to do with manufacturing efficiency and not because of an inherent fault of the V-6. As V-8s fade away, the V-6s they spawned will also diminish in numbers. BMW, which never abandoned the inline-six, has created the template for the modern modular inline engine family that other automakers…

Classic car collectors brace for a Trump auto tariffs crash

The Trump administration’s proposed auto and auto part tariffs may claim an unexpected casualty: The more than 20 million Americans who spend an estimated $1.5 billion annually on classic and antique cars, trucks and motorcycles, according to specialized insurer Hagerty Group. Though many classic car sales are by wealthy collectors and cost in the tens of millions, the average classic vehicle’s value is less than $35,000, according to Hagerty Group. “The hot rodders, the tinkerers, the people who modify cars — that’s a really, really big thing in America,” says Mark Hyman, who runs Hyman Ltd., a…

In a recently aired episode of the hit History Channel show, “American Pickers,” hosts and antique scavengers Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz tracked down the band’s original tour van in Chesterfield that the group used to schlep to gigs around New England in the early 1970s.

The previous property owner had a connection…

No Matter The Value, This Family Will Never Sell Their 1970 Dodge Hemi Challenger R/T

It’s one of the most famous American muscle cars of all time, and also one of the rarest. We’re referring to the 1970 Dodge Hemi Challenger R/T, powered by the 426 Hemi and mated to a four-speed manual. In fact, only 137 of these cars have this engine-transmission combo. But this particular one always has been and always will be a part of the Escalante family. Juan Escalante’s father bought the car new after seeing a similar one at the Detroit Auto Show. It was love at first sight. The…
