Some of the cars owned by historic and current NASCAR stars will be crossing the block at the Barrett-Jackson auction in Scottsdale this month, including one particularly attractive 1964 Plymouth Belvedere 'ForPly' custom built by Ray Evernham.

The Rolls-Royce Phantom, at least in its current guise, has been around for a decade. While that's a long, long time in the automotive biz, the Series II updates launched earlier this year have kept it fresh.

In the wake of Hurricane Sandy, 338 Fisker Karmas, worth a total of about $33 million, were left in ruins through either flooding or fire. Fisker's insurance company has refused to pay the claim, citing the language of the policy. That's likely to leave a big dent in the nascent car company's wallet, but it's not over just yet--the matter is going to court.
