    Cars and rock and roll have gone together since the early days.

    While American fans of Ford performance cars in the '80s and early '90s were loving the 5.0 Mustang, Taurus SHO and, for those who wanted to be a little different, the Merkur XR4Ti, British fans of the Blue Oval were getting their own unique take on speed. The Sierra RS Cosworth (which was ...

    1402343100

    Lamborghini may have made headlines with the highly exclusive, $4.5-million Veneno and the even more expensive Veneno Roadster that followed, but when it comes to classics sold at auction, their prices seldom approach the kind of figures attained by rare classics made by arch-rival Ferrari. Early ...

    Video: World's greatest son gives dad a '57 Chevy for his 57th birthday
    1402270380

    After watching this video, we're not sure which is a more sure-fire way to make a man cry happy tears: hand him the keys to the car of his dreams, or show him how much his children love him. In this case, it was probably the insuppressible combination of the two. The story starts when an ...

    1401926520

    Today, one of the most exciting track toys available is the Porsche 911 GT3. Its forbearer, though, was an altogether different beast that was every bit as exciting. Yes, we're talking about the old 911 Carrera RS that blessed the early 1970s. With a mere 1,580 cars built, meant specifically to ...

    Official: Lego Mini Cooper coming in August [w/video]
    1401915660

    Lego isn't just for kids anymore. A while back, the company cleverly realized that adults liked its connecting blocks as much as kids but wanted a more sophisticated project to take on.

    ETC: BMW 8 Series turns 25 [w/video]
    1401911100

    From the very beginning, the BMW 8 Series was a head turner.

    Video: Porsche 911 Aerodynamic prototype cheated the wind ahead of its time
    1401908280

    You might think that sports cars would have the lowest drag coefficient of all cars. And yes, they do tend to be more slippery than, say, SUVs or convertibles, but the sleekest vehicles on the road tend to be EVs, hybrids and luxury sedans. Sports cars, on the other hand, have aerodynamically ...

    We don't typically report on real estate here at Autoblog, but what we have here is no ordinary building or plot of land.

    Auctions: 1928 Renault Type NN Tourer from Indiana Jones up for auction
    1401649260

    It's uncommon for a film's sequel to surpass the original, and it's even rarer for the third movie in a series to be the best. However, that's arguably the case with Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. Its perfect combination of exciting action set pieces, humor and great performances from ...

    1401321540

    Friends, this is why we can't have nice things. A McLaren F1 was flipped down an embankment in Italy yesterday, and this video of the crash's aftermath is about as sad as when Old Yeller was shot.

    Television today might be at one the best points in the medium's history with shows like Mad Men, Louie, True Detective and streaming offerings like House of Cards.
