Found in the Yard: The Fastest Slowest Camaro Ever Made

Nobody will say that the third-generation Camaro was the best Camaro ever. The third-gen Camaro has neither modern speed or classic style and because of this, they can be found in junkyards across the continent on any given day. But I've never seen one with this engine before.

Found in the Wild: Rarity Doesn't Equate to Value

There have only been 400,000 tons of gold mined ever. From day one to present; 400,000 tons. That's it. Despite being relatively useless, (Though it has excellent thermal properties) gold has tremendous value because of its relative scarcity. Today's 1984 Ford LTD is rare as gold lying on the sidewalk but hardly as valuable. Why is that?

Found in the Wild: The Official Classic Car of Toronto

The R107 Mercedes SL is the official classic car of Toronto. You can find these old Mercedes rolling around on any clear day no matter what neighborhood you're in. This generartion of SL was the height of MB's over-engineering days so they're bound to stick around for a while yet. But why are they so popular in Toronto?

Found in the Wild: Big Cat in the Big Apple

 New York City is a jungle and this big cat seems a little lost in the big city. In a city where cars are a premium luxury, this 1992 Jaguar XJS sits unwanted on the curb gathering dents and parking tickets. What's the real story here?
