’68 Ford Mustang packs a 650-horsepower punch

Resto-mod muscle proved popular with bidders as a 1968 Ford Mustang brought $143,000 thanks in part to a restoration that included the insertion of a 427cid, 650-horsepower Dart V8 and 5-speed Tremec manual shifter.

Muscle did well at the sale, but the No. 3 seller was a 1966 Volkswagen 21-window Samba bus that sold for $118,250.

QOTD: What’s Your Sketchiest Used Car Buying Experience?

For most people, not having a brand new car sort of budget can mean scrounging around on AutoTrader, Cars.com, eBay, or even the ever-professional Craigslist for used vehicles. The resulting experiences end up shaping the future of our car ownership, our finances, and perhaps our legal situations in some cases.

Today we want you to know about your sketchiest used car buying experience.

I’ve always bought used cars; it’s a fun little (expensive) game to play. Use your skills and knowledge, and you might not get burned. Let someone else take that depreciation hit! Totaling up the cars I’ve owned thus far, my count is 11. All were used and at least five years old at the time of purchase, and only two came from dealers. My sketchiest car purchase story comes

10 ’90s Cars That Are Still Totally in Demand or Whatever

NEW YORK (MainStreet) – Sorry, Millennials, but even the cars your parents shuttled you to school in are being left behind.

There are still a whole lot of people looking for 1990s cars, but that number decreases with each passing year. Mark Williams, analyst for Kelley Blue Book, did some digging and found that vehicles from the ’90s are on a consistent decline, which he doesn’t find at all surprising.

“As new model years are introduced to the market, the older model years are being suppressed and yield less interest,” he says. “For example, the most shopped 1990s models are 1999, 1998, 1997, respectively.”

They’re not exactly Those ’90s Cars, either. Williams pulled up the Top 25 cars from the 1990s searched on Kelley Blue Book and came up with the Honda Accord, Toyota Camry, Honda Civic, Jeep Wrangler, Ford F-150, Jeep Grand Cherokee, Ford Mustang and Toyota Corolla among the

One Week With: 2018 Cadillac CT6 Platinum AWD

I’m belted into the driver’s seat, rolling along Los Angeles’ furiously busy 405 freeway on a Tuesday morning, keeping pace with the surrounding traffic at a slightly extra-legal 70 mph. There is a car within feet of me on either side, another one two car lengths ahead, and a fourth—its driver clearly hyper-caffeinated—so close behind it is apparently trying to park itself inside my trunk. Me? I’ve got both feet flat on the floor, my arms are folded in my lap, and I’m watching all the surging, shuffling madness around me with a strange, newfound sense of serenity. And why wouldn’t I be? After all, the Cadillac I’m sitting in is driving all by itself.

Welcome to the brave new world of Cadillac Super Cruise. Launched last fall on the manufacturer’s up-level CT6 sedan, Super Cruise is Caddy’s new Level 2 semi-autonomous driving feature. A $5,000

Could the Singer DLS be the greatest Porsche 911 ever made?

Singer has revealed the result of its long-awaited collaboration with Williams Advanced Engineering and two legendary Porsche engineers to take its famous ‘reimagined’ classic 911s to another level – and the car is on show at Goodwood this weekend. The LA-based company has become known for its high-quality, re-engineered restorations of the classic 1990s 964 version of the 911. However, in November 2017 it announced that it was working with Williams in the UK as well as former Porsche engineers Norbert Singer and Hans Mezger.

The result is a classic-shaped 911, still based on the 964, that has had every detail analysed and optimised using state-of-the-art engineering techniques, right down to the 2.7 RS Carrera-style ducktail rear spoiler. Could you ask more than a 911 with classic looks combined with technology that rivals the best any modern manufacturer could offer?

City tops region’s bulk purchases of anti-overdose drug

Police, firefighters, colleges and public schools are stopping overdoses — and saving money — through bulk purchases of the antidote drug naloxone, but the cost of the anti-opioid medicine is going up.

More than 143 communities-— including Haverhill, Methuen, North Andover and Andover — paid a total of $238,608 for doses of the anti-overdose drug in fiscal year 2017, according to a state Department of Public Health report. Overall, the state bulk-purchasing program distributed more than 8,500 doses of naloxone to cities and towns.

The bulk-buying program was created by lawmakers in 2015 in response to a spike in overdoses that claimed thousands of lives. The state buys the medicine and then sells it to communities at reduced cost.

Money to begin the program came from an agreement between Attorney General Maura Healey and Amphastar Pharmaceuticals, which provided $325,000 to acquire and distribute the medicine at
