The King is well-known for his love of cars. It’s said that he owned somewhere around 200 cars in his lifetime, and Cadillacs had a special place in his heart. Although, the most interesting of his cars might be the 1971 De Tomaso Pantera that he shot in the steering wheel when it wouldn’t start for him. If you ever find yourself in Memphis, you can visit 20 of his cars on display at the Elvis Presley Auto Museum.

BMW builds its five millionth car in the United States

BMW’s Spartanburg, South Carolina, factory built its five millionth car in June 2020. It reached this milestone 26 years after manufacturing its first vehicle, and less than three years after crossing the four-million mark.

The milestone car is an X5 M Competition painted in Toronto Red and powered by a 617-horsepower, 4.4-liter V8 engine. Although X5s sometimes travel thousands of miles after driving off the Spartanburg assembly line, this head-turning example will lead a much quieter life. BMW will keep it at the factory and add it to its growing collection of historically significant cars. It will live under the same roof as the first car produced in the facility, an E36-generation 318i painted white and signed by the men and women who made it.

BMW opened the plant in 1994. The one millionth car, a Z4 M Roadster, was finished in February 2006. It took the German company six

Top 10 best-looking Le Mans 24 Hours cars

10. Porsche 935/78 ‘Moby Dick’
Year: 1978

Few would call the Group 5 silhouette racers of the late-1970s beautiful but they were dramatic. And the long-tailed 935 was perhaps the most outrageous of all.

The 935 was already the pacesetter in the category when ‘Moby Dick’, described by some as a ‘rule-bender’, arrived at Silverstone and promptly won the six-hour event by seven laps in the hands of Jacky Ickx and Jochen Mass.

Le Mans, where it was driven by Rolf Stommelen and Manfred Schurti, was the bigger test. The 3.2-litre turbocharged engine produced more than 750bhp, helping the 935/78 to match the fastest Group 6 prototypes down the Mulsanne Straight, topping 220mph.

After qualifying third – fastest Group 5 car by more than 15s – the 935/78 mixed it in the early stages with the Alpine-Renaults and Porsche 936s, but had neither the fuel economy or the reliability to … Read More

Appreciating classic cars is something everyone should enjoy.

Since 1952, Classic Car Club of America has been working to collecting and preserving some of the finest cars from around the globe. The organization also helps educate the public and boost appreciation for the fine craftsmanship found in older automobiles. As technology pushes ahead and we see all kinds of stories in mainstream media about kids these days supposedly not even wanting to learn how to drive, it’s good to know not everyone wants to slam the door on the history of the automobile.

CCCA pours most of its time and energy into a specific range of car model years: 1915 to 1948. That not to say a Packard from 1911 won’t get any attention.

Quite a few CCCA members also belong to Criminal Defense Attorney in Fort Worth the organization’s chartered Region where
