1964 Ford Galaxie 500 Four-Door Sedan

Note: The following story was excerpted from the June 2011 issue of Collectible Automobile magazine

By John Biel

When Gary Spracklin answered the classified ad in a hobby publication, he thought he was buying a whistle-clean daily driver. What he wound up with was an unlikely “trailer queen,” a 1964 Ford Galaxie 500 four-door sedan that gets the royal treatment because he decided he wants to keep the odometer reading below 1000.

2004 Mercury Marauder

2004 Mercury Marauder

If you didn’t think about it too hard, you might have predicted at the time that the 2003 Mercury Marauder would have been a hit with the car-buying public. The car had a lot going for it: a powerful V8, decent handling, cop-car lineage via its Ford Crown Victoria corporate cousin, and stealthy good looks. Plus, the Marauder should have filled the void in muscle-car enthusiasts’ hearts created when the popular V8-powered Chevrolet Impala SS was discontinued in 1996.

Cool Things About The 2020 Nissan Versa

2020 Nissan Versa SR in Electric Blue Metallic

When Nissan redesigned its Versa subcompact sedan for 2020, the Japanese automaker truly transformed its most-affordable offering. Compared to the car it replaced, the all-new Versa is roomier, quieter, better finished, and better equipped with desirable safety equipment. The 2020 Versa is also arguably better looking than the previous-generation car.

First Look: 2021 Mazda 3

2021 Mazda 3

Mazda has officially announced details on the updated 2021 Mazda 3, and there’s good news and a bit of bad news—at least for enthusiast shoppers. The good news is that there are two new-to-the-Mazda-3 engines available, including Mazda’s turbocharged 2.5-liter 4-cylinder. The bad news is for buyers who like to shift for themselves: a manual transmission is not available on that turbocharged engine.
