Pontiac Grand Prix Insuring A Modified CarThe London-based beatthatquote.com is an online price-comparison service, and it did some research and figured out that modifying a vehicle could lead to a 171 percent rise in its insurance.

You can upload photos and videos, read a blog, find clubs, vote in polls, and burn through endless hours of Pontiactainment. $5.5 Million Auction Sale: It's a RecordThe car: Carroll Shelby's personal Cobra 427 Supersnake owned by Harley Cluxton IIIThe place: Barrett-Jackson AuctionThe cash: $5.5 millionThe bucks brought in on this car broke a previous B-J record by $1.5 million.
