The worlds' oldest running automobile, the steam driven 1884 De Dion sold recently for $4.6 million in Pennsylvania. This vintage car sold for more than double of its catalogue estimate, and is a world record for an early motor car at auction. The vintage car was the most highly valued of 115 cars that we offered by RM Auctions at Hershey earlier this week. The steam driven antique car is capable of 37 miles per hour on a straight road and drew a standing ovation from the audience when it drove onto the auction stage. The antique cars' bidding started at $500,000 and immediately jumped to $1 million before climbing the record of $4.6 million. RM Auctions has not identified the buy of this antique car.

1948 MG TC Classic Cars Road Trip

A New Zealand couple with a love for classic cars are now set to embark on an international road trip in their 1948 MG TC sports car. They plan to drive the model to China on an epic 30,000 mile journey from Barnsley, New Zealand via Europe, Russia, China and southeast Asia.

The car originally cost Robert Douglas 150 pounds when he purchased it as a teenager more than four decades ago. They admit that most people have told them they are "totally, completely and utterly mad" for pursuing the idea, but Mrs. Douglas explains that they've done lots of long-distance touring the past around Australia, South America , Central America and North America, so it is not exactly new to them. On their latest trip, the couple will be joined by their friends Mark and Sheila Masters who also own an MG that is virtually identical to the Douglas' car.
