You know, a village with some barn finds is a little like a mule with a spinning wheel…

It’s not every day you hear about a village becoming the new owner of some barn find cars, but that’s exactly what’s going on with the village of Durand in Illinois. The village purchased a barn which hasn’t been touched in several decades. While there were rumors about what might be inside, everyone was amazed to get a glimpse of the contents.

See what a $1 million barn find car looks like here.

Buried in the rubble of wooden crates and other vintage items were 3 classic cars, all in original condition. There’s a Ford Thunderbird, Fairlane 500, and a…


As one of only four 550s built by Race and Rally team Italtecnica, this 2000 550 GT1 had a rough start upon its introduction onto the race track.

As one of only four 550s built by Race and Rally team Italtecnica, this 2000 550 GT1 had a rough start upon its introduction onto the race track. However, in late 2003 the car’s luck changed.

It took three seasons with some very experienced drivers behind the wheel but this 2000 Ferrari 550 GT1 finally made its way into the winner’s circle. The victories came at the end of the 2003 season and continued through 2004. This season would prove to be the car’s finale for the contemporary track and it was then sold to a French car collector and then to a German car collector who commissioned former JMB engineer Jean-Christophe Noel to perform a comprehensive restoration on the car. …

Finding a clean example of a 1970 Chevy Chevelle SS LS6 these days is like finding a unicorn hidden among the horses. There are many variants of the Chevelle that were made during this time, but the LS6-powered ones were highly coveted beasts, that have the meat to keep up with the muscle car madness on the roads today. Example in this kind of condition are becoming harder to find by the day, and as soon as one becomes available for sale, they’re usually gone by the next day.

Finished in a stunning original Black Cherry paint with white racing…

Mopar has been crushing the competition lately with its modern muscle cars but there is still nothing like the 1969–½ ‘lift-off’ hood Super Bee. The problem is that there are very few to go around and only 153 1969–½ year models with the A-12 performance package were even made. Before you give up on this seemingly unattainable dream car though, imagine if you were to be able to win a fully restored example with only 27,000 original miles on the clock. Now you can.

To honor the late Captain George Eyston, Rolls-Roycehas revealed two Landspeed Collection models, a Wraith coupe and Dawn convertible. Whichever one customers choose, they’ll get a stylish vehicle packed with references to Eyston’s impactful career.

Learn how a former Rolls-Royce factory could become a classic car tourist destination here.

Captain George Eyston set 3 land speed records at the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah back in the 1930s. The final time he set a record, the Brit pushed his car to a blistering 357.5 mph back in 1938, which is incredibly fast even by today’s standards.

Growing up, my teachers pretty much skipped over the Korean War, as if it were a conflict which really didn’t matter in the grand scheme of things. That is, of course, preposterous for several reasons I won’t get into here. Instead, the purpose of this article, which is appropriately publishing on the federally observed Independence Day, is to highlight the use of motorcycles on Korean battlefields. …

As we’ve noted many times before, the 6th-gen Chevy Camaro has been suffering badly when it comes to sales. Many have argued it’s an excellent muscle car that’s just not appreciated, largely because of the styling, but that’s a discussion for another time. The focus of this article is to discuss a recent report from MotorTrend which claims there almost was a 6th-gen Camaro Z/28with the C8 Corvette Z06’s flat-plane crank V8.

Check out the design ideas GM is kicking around for the 7th-gen Camaro here.

The Mercedes Formula One team principal and co-owner Toto Wolff has confirmed that he will be selling off this entire collection of Ferraris, which is an impressive lineup. It’s an interesting move that we suspect is at least in part political, because the man who’s working so closely with Mercedes can’t be seen driving a rival’s vehicle.

Test your knowledge of the Ferrari F40 here.

One of the top cars Wolff has put on the market is a 2003 Ferrari Enzo with a mere 1,478 miles on the clock. …
