Could Daimler brand be revived by Jaguar Land Rover in the UK?

Could the historic Daimler brand be revived as part of Jaguar Land Rover’s plans to expand its model range? As the resurgent Midland car-maker goes from strength to strength and seeks to double the number of vehicles it produces to more than a million a year, it could make sense. Although Jaguar Land Rover has said nothing to indicate it’s even a remote possibility, it does own the rights to the UK arm of the Daimler name. There is no disputing the Coventry car maker needs to grow if it…

A Brief History of the Cord Automobile: The Coolest Car You Never Knew Existed

And what if you then learned that this car in fact was introduced not in the 1960s, but a full three decadesearlier, in the 1930s? We’re referring here to the revolutionary Cord. No, not a Ford—or an Accord—but a Cord: quite possibly the coolest car you’ve never heard of. And it all began 85 years ago, in the town of…

Over 700 Barn Finds Up For Grabs!

When Ron Hackenberger bought his first car, a 1948 Studebaker, at just 15 years old, he likely didn’t realize that over half a century later he would amass a collection of cars, trucks, motorcycles, and tractors that numbers over 700. Nevertheless, that’s just what the Norwalk, Ohio resident has consigned to auction this July and it’s one of the more eclectic collections of vehicles we’ve seen yet. Hackenberger’s former trucking company used to deliver goods around the country and when the man himself was at the wheel, he’d always keep…

Ultra-rare Jaguar becomes world’s most expensive E-type as it sells for a record £6MILLION

A1963 Jaguar E-type Lightweight Competition became both the most valuable E-type and most valuable post-1960 Jaguar to ever sell at auction when it fetched $7.37 million (£5.86 million). The Australian GT Championship-winning car is said to be one of the most original of the 12 Lightweights that Jaguar produced in the early Sixties, which was sold to a telephone bidder during Bonhams’ annual sale of collectors’ cars in Scottsdale, Arizona last week. It has only had three owners from new and has only covered 4,000 miles in that time. The…

1939 Mercedes-Benz, hidden from the Nazis and smuggled out of Soviet Russia, sells for £5.4m

A classic Mercedes-Benz built as Europe teetered on the edge of war has been auctioned in Arizona for $6.6m, roughly £5.4m. The one-off 540 K Special Roadster has been accurately restored and was the highlight of a sale in Phoenix, which also included a low-mileage 2003 Ferrari Enzo, a 2013 Bugatti Veyron Super Sport, and a 2008 Lamborghini Reventón. The Mercedes is believed to have been hidden from the Nazis and smuggled out of the Soviet Union. It may even be the last example of this model made before the outbreak…

Gaylord Gladiator 1955-57 – America’s Finest Sports Car?

Bobby pins? They seem so inevitable; it’s funny to think someone had to sit down and invent one.  But a guy named Gaylord did just that and became a very wealthy man indeed. Mr. Gaylord’s sons Jim and Ed had gasoline in their blood, so much so, they described themselves as “autoholics.” They were inspired to spend some bobby pin money building the finest sports car America had yet seen, with quality to rival the word’s finest cars. Jim Gaylord designed his own sturdy chassis and powered it with a…
