Hagerty, the nation's number one insurer of classic cars, has released its list of the 10 hottest collector cars of the summer. Like in recent years, cars of the 1980s and '90s are becoming more popular, and so are pickup trucks and even SUVs. We take a look at the list, give a history of each, and share Hagerty's stats about how they are performing as collector cars.

What's the worst parking job you've ever seen? We bet it wasn't as bad as the painfully poor job a Vancouver teen did in a Porsche Cayenne. But there's more to the story. Apparently, the unlicensed 16-year-old was involved in a hit-and-run accident before doing even more damage to the Cayenne and the garage it calls home. Mom and dad must be mad.

How much do you trust your car's autonomous systems? Enough to stand in front of it as a human guinea pig? A guy named Mike trusted his buddy's Tesla Model S so much that he did just that and the pair filmed it. Mike stands in front of the car when his friend activates the Summon mode and even walks in front of it while underway. Thankfully, Mike wasn't hurt.

You'll find all of these stories and more in today's car news, right here at Motor Authority.
