We’re in a golden age for vintage vehicles. Aside from the usual Corvettes and Mustangs that have held collectible status for decades, a whole generation of Radwood-era rides is finally getting its due (see the skyrocketing prices on ’90s Hondas, for example), along with other cars and trucks that have suddenly become enthusiast icons. Browsing today’s lineup of online car auctions gives you a front-row seat to all the action—and a fun way to put one of these rides in your garage.

We scoured auction sites like Cars & Bids, Bring a Trailer, Hemmings, and more to put together a short list of some of the most intriguing vehicles up for grabs right now. See something you like? Bid on it. Not interested in our picks? Check back later—we’ll update this page with a fresh batch of car auctions every week.

1. 2007 RUF RGT 3.9L

Want to one-up your neighbor’s Porsche? Bid on this bright green beast. Created by RUF, a boutique German car manufacturer that turns Porsche car bodies into quasi-supercars, this RGT began life with a 3.8-liter flat-six, but it has since been modified to displace 3.9 liters and pump out almost 500 horsepower. It also features an adjustable suspension, factory widebody kit, and Recaro race seats—perfect for tearing up the track (or donuts on the cul-de-sac).

2. 1995 Ford F-250 XLT

V8 turbodiesel power, a handsome two-tone paint job, and four-wheel drive—this old truck has a lot going for it. The interior has a little wear and tear and the mileage (210,100) is certainly up there, but it does have a replacement transmission and looks to be well kept. This F-250 could make a great tow rig for hauling your toys around this summer.

3. 1995 Chevrolet Corvette Indianapolis 500 Pace Car Edition

Corvettes always turn heads, but this one is extra special. It’s one of just over 500 models that received the commemorative Indianapolis 500 Pace Car Package, which gave it a striking purple-and-gray paint job and lots of exclusive Indy 500 decals. Better yet, it has barely been driven: It shows just 252 miles on the odometer.

4. 1986 Volkswagen Scirocco

The Volkswagen Golf GTI gets most of the attention when it comes to VW hot hatches, but the Scirocco is worth a look, too. In fact, the Scirocco GTI actually debuted before its sporty Golf sibling in 1976. This ‘86 model has had just one owner since it rolled off the dealer lot, and although it shows 226,000 miles, it benefits from a repaint in its factory shade, an overhauled engine, and modifications like new springs, sway bars, and a strut bar.

5. 1967 BMW R60/2

A fully restored BMW Slash 2 in a color other than black? As the listing describes, this bike is truly “art on two wheels.” This numbers-matching R60 received a full restoration that finished up in 2020, and from the refreshed paint to the gleaming chrome exhaust and wheel spokes, it’s in pristine condition. You won’t find another bike like it.
