  • Anthony Franqui- 1968 Camaro

    "I married my girlfriend of 14 yrs finally and we have a son with cerebral palsy so I put my car aside to marry her and pay for a house in 2008, by 20011 she had cheated on me and left with the neighbors 20 yr old son. leaving me with two sons to raise alone. I'm still trying to track her down to get served with divorce papers. I have a 68 camaro in my carport under my car cover that I stare at every day and wonder why I invested so much time and money in her instead of my car, cause its still here !" -Anthony Franqui

  • Guess Where They Found The "Back to the Future" Truck?

    If you saw the second and third "Back to the Future" movies, you likely remember the celebrated DeLorean car that was used in the pictures. But there were other vehicles in the films too. Michael J. Fox's character, Marty McFly, drove a 1985 Toyota Xtra Cab 4X4 truck in those movies, and it's that truck that will be undergoing a restoration soon.

    According to the Time Machine Restoration Company, the Toyota was stolen many years ago, and was recently recovered by the Mexican federal police. The car was auctioned off, and the company, already restoring the movie's iconic DeLorean, got the truck too.

    It's not clear what the vehicle was doing in Mexico, or why the Mexico federal police were involved, but there's no question that it's the actual car. There was a note written on the passenger-side sun visor that read, "Keith, Many thanks. See you on something else I'm sure—Michael J. Fox."
