Enter to Win This Officially Licenced 1967 Ford Mustang Eleanor & $20,000!

Two decades on, the 2000 remake of Gone in 60 Seconds still endears us for a couple of reasons. One is the “poor Tody, poor us” line spoken by Vinnie Jones during the barbeque at the end of the film. Another is the scene where the Hummer pushes the police car down the parking ramp to the lyrical graces of DMX. Real cinematic art that scene.  And of course, Eleanor.   Affiliate Disclosure: Automoblog and its partners may be compensated when you participate in this campaign. How ...

Housekeeping: Happy Masked Fourth of July, America

Supersonic Sedan: Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye

You’ve probably never looked at the Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat and thought to yourself, “There’s no way I’m going to buy that thing until the factory makes one with 797 horsepower and a stop speed of 203 mph.” Those are figures best left to high-end exotics even rich people rarely drive, not the plebeian family sedan.
