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…

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…

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,…

The world’s finest collection of Humber limousines

The reaction of Allan Marshall to his father acquiring a six-year-old Humber Pullman in 1960 was one of incredulity: “He hailed me in the street and I was amazed to see him driving this immense car. It looked about 20 feet long and most of that seemed taken up with the bonnet.”  Marshall Senior discovered Humber when he drove army staff cars in the Second World War and 15 years after the end of hostilities he finally bought one for a bargain price of £90. Allan never forgot his first…

Jaguar to offer 10 ‘reborn’ E-Types

Following the success of its continuation program for the Lightweight E-Type, Jaguar has decided to offer a handful of what it’s calling “reborn” E-Types. Jaguar’s classic car department plans to scour the classifieds for 10 original E-Types and then comprehensively restore them to pristine, factory-original condition. (Jaguar says it has all the build records and original drawings on hand.) Classic cars are all the rage right now and automakers are looking to cash in. Sister company Land Rover ran a similar restoration program for 25 original Land Rovers in 2016…

Vintage Bentley fitted with a WWII 27-litre SPITFIRE engine that sold for £500,000

You’d have to have your aesthetic sense surgically removed not to find the Meteor Bentley impressive. There’s that pristine, polished engine for a start, a 27-litre derivation of the legendary Merlin unit that once propelled Lancaster bombers and Spitfires. With 12 exhausts and 24 spark plugs, and turning out a leisurely 660bhp, the Meteor – in essence a Merlin without a supercharger – provided many British tanks with ample, dependable power. It’s equally unstressed here. YOU HAVE TO WATCH THE VIDEO BELOW A classic Bentley went on sale in 2012….

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

What if you learned that there was a car that debuted in the 1960s with front-wheel drive, a supercharged V-8, chrome-plated side-exhaust pipes, hidden headlights, and a disappearing convertible top? 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…
