This yellow Camaro and other weird/wonderful cars at Mecum Auctions Portland

Mecum Auctions is stopping into Portland, Ore., this weekend (June 22-23), and before I stop by to check out the lots, I figured I’d do some Internet shopping before hand to see what sort weird and wonderful four-wheeled treasures will be on hand … you know, in case my imaginary Uncle Mort dies leaving me $150,000 and clear instructions to spend it on something ridiculous. Oh Uncle Mort, you’ll be missed.

So, here are some of the cars, trucks and others that caught my eye in the Mecum Auction Portland online catalog, which I urge you to thereafter check out and do some shopping yourself. Why not? It’s fun.

This extremely yellow 1979 Chevy Camaro Z28 with “rare factory T-Tops” Did you notice that it’s yellow?

This adorable teal 1967 Ford Bronco Sport.

Practically brand-new 1964 Volkswagen Beetle priced at $1 million

A 1964 Volkswagen Beetle with just 23 miles on the odometer has hit the open market and can be yours for the low, low price of $1 million.

You read that right: A Volkswagen Beetle with a seven-figure price tag.

That would shatter the record for the most expensive Beetle ever sold. To put the $1 million price tag in perspective, Hagerty estimates that a 1964 example in concours condition would go for about $30,000.

$1 million buys this 1964 Volkswagen Beetle

What does it take for an old Beetle to be worth millions? Sometimes the currency helps, as the oldest VW Beetle in Sweden, a 1948 “Type 1” recently sold for 1,350,000 SEK. That’s still only about $150,000, falling far from the million-dollar mark. But, there’s a black Beetle for sale in Portland, Oregon, with the asking price of a cool $1 million.

The Oregon Beetle is far newer than the Swedish car, as it was built in 1964. The unique thing is that it has only 23 miles on the odometer and remains absolutely original in every respect. With a car like this, there has to be a backstory, and this one is worth hearing: A mechanic and car collector by the name of Rudy Zvarich simply bought the car to act as a spare car, if his 1957 daily driver Beetle would

Razer Phone 2 Review


What is the Razer Phone 2?

Avid gamer looking for a perfect mobile fragging station? Then the Razer Phone 2 may be the handset for you.

The imaginatively named Razer Phone 2 is the second phone from gaming peripherals and hardware specialist Razer, and according to the company, it has been ‘designed by gamers for gamers’.

At first glance it’s not the most interesting gaming phone to arrive this year. It doesn’t have the ridiculous design or wealth of peripherals offered by the competing ROG Phone. Instead it’s a 0.5 upgrade that aims to fix minor issues that hampered the original Razer Phone’s appeal to non-gamers.

But the changes Razer has made, which include an improved max screen brightness, upgraded internals and the addition of wireless charging, are positive. These, coupled with the still excellent sound system and super slick, HDR-ready, 120Hz refresh-rate screen, mean the phone is still a dream

Deputies: Suspect sought after stabbing in SW Portland; one person injured

Washington County deputies are searching for a suspect after a stabbing early Wednesday morning.

The Washington County Sheriff’s Office said deputies responded to a report of an assault in the 3300 block of Southwest Garden View Avenue at around 1:16 a.m.

When deputies arrived to the scene, they found a 33-year-old man suffering from stab wounds. The victim was taken to an area hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries.

According to the sheriff’s office, the victim told deputies he went over to a friend’s house where someone came out of the tree line and stabbed him several times.

Deputies, along with a Beaverton police K9, searched the area for the suspect, but did not locate anyone.

The sheriff’s office said it was later determined that the suspect, identified as 33-year-old Julio Aguilar-Garcia, stole and fled in a gold 2012 Cadillac Escalade with Oregon license plate 266EZY.

Deputies believe the victim and Aguilar-Garcia know each other.
