Worst Car Commercials

Is this a scene from the worst car commercial of all time? Read on…

For as relatively new a form of communication as television is, the content broadcast via that medium ages incredibly quickly. In terms of style and language, it may be difficult to tell a book written in 1920 from one penned a couple of decades later. Television history, however, is well defined by rather short epochs, and none is more easily recognizable or uniquely self contained than the Eighties.

Longest Lasting Vehicles

2019 GMC Yukon

Is 200,000 miles the new 100,000 miles? Maybe not, but the number of vehicles reaching the 200,000-mile mark seems to be on the rise. According to the analysts at vehicle-retail site iSeeCars.com, just under one percent of all cars, crossovers, SUVs, and pickup trucks will go that distance–presumably to the delight of their owners.

2019 Chevrolet Blazer

2019 Chevrolet Blazer RS

If you were hoping that Chevrolet’s anticipated revival of its Blazer nameplate would result in a modern-day off-roader that could square off against Ford’s soon-to-be-unveiled 2020 Bronco, we’ve got bad news for you.

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.

If you’re my age (around the half-century mark), you’ve been programmed since high school to fully appreciate the dangers and potentially disastrous consequences of drinking and driving. And, indeed, since I began college in 1983, the legal penalties for operating a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol have become significantly harsher.

2006 Chevrolet Impala SS

2006 Chevrolet Impala SS

Camaro ZL1by Don Sikora II

Note: The following story was excerpted from the April 2018 issue of Collectible Automobile magazine.

The original Chevrolet Impala Super Sport was a trendsetter, and from 1961 through 1969 the nameplate adorned some fast-and-fantastic Chevy hardtops and convertibles. But as classic muscle peaked, interest in full-size performance gave way to luxury.
