Betting on cars being collectors' items in the future is a tough bet. Many of us don't have the 40 years or so of runway needed. Are there enough 12-21 year-olds that will see the 2020 C8 as their...

The Mack wasn't great either. Having 500 bags of bulk cement in the bulk truck was always a treat. I did like the RTO 9513, though. Who needs a clutch?
