    Auctions: 1955 Lincoln Indianapolis concept up for auction
    1379768460

    Lincoln was never a brand known for making sports cars. In fact it hasn't offered anything with less than four doors since the demise of the Mark VIII, and that was hardly what you'd call "performance oriented". But that doesn't mean that Ford's luxury marque never toyed with the idea. In 1955 ...

    1379631540

    With Shelby preparing to wind down production of its brutal GT350, a 624-horsepower Mustang that's meant to go up against the Roush Stage 3 in the world of tuned Ford ponycars, the Las Vegas-based tuner is looking to give back to one lucky customer.

    Auctions: Ford to auction Mustang Cobra Jet prototype for charity [w/video]
    1379341800

    Prototypes developed by major automakers typically remain in said company's custody, but every once in a while, one trickles out into private hands. And that's just what we have here. Ford is donating a one-of-a-kind factory prototype for the 2014 Mustang Cobra Jet that will be auctioned off ...

    Official: 2013 Barrett-Jackson auction coverage to stretch across three Fox networks
    1379076300

    The death of Speed and its rebirth as Fox Sports 1 left many a gearhead concerned. We were worried that we'd lose out on some of the best coverage Speed ever provided, whether it be Formula 1, inane, car-related game shows or Barrett-Jackson auctions. Our concerns seem to have been misplaced, ...

    1378999860

    The values of collectibles are going up, particularly those of classic cars, the prices paid for which we've seen climb over the years to several millions of dollars, if not (much) more.

    Auctions: Ecurie Ecosse vintage racing stable up for auction
    1378987200

    Scotland may not be the first country that comes to mind when you think of motor racing, but maybe it should be.

    Auctions: eBay Find of the Day: This is what an AMC Pacer with a $55k resto looks like
    1378769340

    We'll be the first to admit that AMC Pacers don't send tingles of excitement down our backs when we see them. Truly an innovative car for its time that fell a bit short on delivery, the Pacer developed a cult following that appreciates its functional funk. It was designed to be as spacious as a ...

    Report: Investing in blue-chip classic cars has been lucrative this decade
    1378240260

    There's always a financial risk with investing in collectibles – and that includes cars. They must be maintained and stored, which costs more money, and ultimately sold (they're investments, right?). On top of that, if they're driven, they can be damaged or just lose value with more miles. ...

    Auctions: eBay Find of the Day: 1987 Ford Thunderbird Turbo Coupe is showroom fresh
    1377642480

    There's an ultra-rare Ford Thunderbird for sale on eBay, although it's not quite the T-Bird you're probably thinking. This is a 1987 Thunderbird Turbo Coupe, complete with a five-speed manual transmission and just a shade over 13,000 miles on the clock. The condition is said to be mint, and ...

    Auctions: Liberace's gilded Cadillac could be yours
    1377617340

    With their chrome grilles and oversized wheels, it's hard not to notice a Cadillac these days. But this one is even more blingtastic on account of the 23.75-karat gold-leaf bodywork. The 1931 Cadillac Golfer's Drop Head Coupé is said to have belonged to the inimitable performer Liberace, ...

    Report: Cache of vintage Chevys in Nebraska headed to auction [w/video]
    1377115260

    This isn't the first car dealer turned time capsule, but it might be the biggest. Ray Lambrecht stashed about 500 new cars from 1958 to 1980 that didn't sell at his Pierce, NE, Chevrolet dealership before he closed shop in 1996, Yahoo News reports. His reasoning? Instead of selling previous ...

    1376841660

    RM Auctions' two-day event during the Monterey car week is pretty much a matter of appetizer and main course.

    Auctions: eBay Find of the Day: 1990 Mazda Miata with just 27 original miles
    1376522820

    Some cars have low mileage, and others have close to no miles at all. This 1990 Mazda Miata, currently listed on eBay Motors and located in Kingman, Arizona, falls into the latter category with only 27 miles on the odometer, according to the seller. But we have to wonder: how did one of the ...

    Auctions: eBay Find of the Day: 1960 Aston DB4GT Zagato replica with supercharged DB7 engine
    1375972200

    For all of the attention to detail that went into this beautiful, custom-built 1960 DB4GT Zagato, it almost seems a shame to call the Aston Martin a "replica." But because it started out as a non-Zagato coupe (only twenty originals were built) and is now powered by a supercharged inline six ...

    Auctions: 1973 Lancia Stratos makes for a super cool barn find
    1375970460

    Like a scene out of Forza Horizon, finding something like an ultra-rare 1972 Lancia Stratos is a dream. The Ferrari-engined, Bertone-bodied rally car is one of the automotive highlights of the 1970s, winning the World Rally Championship three straight times (1974, 1975 and 1976). And while there ...
