11 Features You No Longer See in Cars

It’s hard to picture what today’s teenagers will wax nostalgic about 30 years from now when they reminisce about their first car. (It still required gasoline, perhaps?) Who knows how automobiles will change in the future; what we do know is how different they are today from 30 or more years ago. If you fondly remember being surrounded by two or three tons of solid Detroit steel with a whip antenna on the front from which you could tie a raccoon tail or adorn with an orange Union 76 ball, and enough leg…

Preston Tucker’s personal 1948 Tucker expected to command more than $1M at January auction

The Tucker Corporation was merely a flash in the late 1940s pan, but it remains an incredibly intriguing story in American automobile history. The company’s turmoil, conspiracy, and demise is a story that was documented, with some creative license, in the 1988 motion picture “Tucker: The Man and His Dream,” starring Jeff Bridges and directed by Francis Ford Coppola. Only 51 Tucker sedans were produced and 47 survive. One very important survivor will grace RM Sotheby’s Arizona auction on January 18. It’s not only rare, it was Preston Tucker’s personal car. The Tucker 48,…

Here’s What the Family Road Trip Looked Like in 1954

Road tripping today is easy—pack up and hit the road. You don’t even need to know where you’re going: GPS guides you there, picking the fastest route with the least traffic. You can even start off aimlessly, only turning to your smartphone to find food and gas when needed. It’s a far cry from the family road trip of half a century ago. I recently came across this 1954 film produced by Chevrolet, teaching the average American family how to have a happy, safe, stress-free road trip. Produced by Jam…

Coolest Concept Cars of the 70s

1970 Chrysler Cordoba de Oro This personal-luxury concept predated the production Cordoba by five years. Low, long, and sleek, the Cordoba de Oro still looks terrific today. 1977 Pontiac Trans Am Type K The Trans Am Type K is the sort of car enthusiasts dream about. The only thing that would have made it cooler would have been all-wheel drive. I still don’t understand why Pontiac didn’t put this car into production. 1977-78 Ford Megastar I and II Though not exactly a pretty car, it’s hard not to be impressed…

Corvette with 773,338 Original Miles Donated to the Corvette Museum

Last year we told you about a fifth-generation Chevy Corvette that had accumulated over 700,000 miles on its original engine. Now, at 773,338 miles, the owner, Mark Blackwell, has decided to donate the red C5 hatch to the Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, Kentucky. Blackwell, who lives near Jacksonville, Florida, bought the 2000 Corvette brand new in 1999. He commutes frequently to Georgia and southern Florida for work, which explains the massively impressive odometer reading. Doing the math, that’s over 100 miles per day over an 18-year span. As Corvette Museum…

You Can Buy The First Buick GNX Ever Sold

Now here’s an opportunity that doesn’t come along, uh, ever. The first Buick GNX sold to the public, chassis #003, is headed to auction next year where it’ll be sold with no reserve. Remember the time a GNX sold for record-setting $165,000? We’re betting that record now has an expiration date. BARRETT-JACKSON According to auction house Barrett-Jackson, GNXes #001 and #002 are still owned by GM, so this is as early a GNX as you could possibly buy. In its first year of life, Buick loaned out #003 for magazines—including Road & Track—to test, accruing…
