2018 Mecum Chicago Auction

Collector-car auctions sell plenty of high-dollar vehicles, but they also offer more-accessible classics. This 1963 Buick Riviera sold for less than the cost of the average 2018 Buick Encore subcompact crossover.

Every October, the Mecum Auctions road show rolls into Chicagoland for a weekend-long event that takes over the Schaumburg Convention Center in Schaumburg, Illinois. Like any of the major-league televised auctions, the 2018 Mecum Chicago shindig had its share of big-ticket featured lots. A 1979 Porsche 930 Turbo originally owned by legendary Chicago Bears running back Walter Payton was the star of this year’s show—it sold for $324,500, topping the list of results for the event.

Vehicles With Worst Resale Value

Purchasing a luxury or electric vehicle new may not always be the best financial decision.

When considering the cost of a new vehicle, most consumers take into account the initial purchase price of the car or truck, and maybe the cost of fuel, insurance, and maintenance.

Last AWD Sedans

2019 Nissan Altima

There’s a certain cachet to sedans with all-wheel drive. Though largely shunned by folks in states in which snow is not a real threat to commuting ease, AWD vehicles in general have caught on with the buying public, accounting for as much as 80 percent of the sales of certain crossover-SUV models in cities such as Chicago and New York.

2018 Lincoln Continental

2018 Lincoln Continental

With the 2018 model year coming to a close, it’s time to take a look at the cars and crossovers that haven’t caught on with the American motoring public. What we’ve amassed here are not the worst-selling cars of 2018 so far–they’re simply a handful of vehicles we feel have largely failed in the marketplace.

2002 Ford Thunderbird

2002 Ford Thunderbird

History has probably been unkind to the 11th-generation Ford Thunderbird. Ask your average enthusiast about the relative marketplace success of Ford’s retro-themed 2-seat convertible, and you’re likely to be told that the revived T-Bird was a flop.

Coolest Dashboards

1955 Packard

by Frank Peiler

In the early days of the automobile, dashboards were just that: wooden planks onto which gauges and switches were mounted.

By the early Thirties, wood dashboards were replaced by steel, and designers began to take an interest in the collection of dials and knobs located there.
