The Citroën DS features a unique hydropneumatic suspension that, essentially, supports the car with fluid. This gives the DS unique self-leveling properties that—as this video demonstrates—allows it to drive on three wheels.

How many cars can do that?

Even though the DMC DeLorean was only sold for a relatively short amount of time, it quickly found itself propelled into ’80s stardom.

To this day, the car is so popular that numerous clubs dedicated to the stainless-steel wedge exist, with an active used-car marketplace keeping these icons relevant some 40 years later.

Do you think the DeLorean was a complete failure, or was it just a victim of the controversy that surrounded its creator?

Restoration projects don't have to be big, complex undertakings. Why not spruce up a toy like this Nylint Roadster die-cast car from the 1960s? Watch as the rusty, worn-out toy car gets a new lease on life with a bit of time, effort and attention to detail.

What's the smallest thing you've ever restored?

In light of the very public stock fraud trial, Preston Tucker was said to have built only 51 examples of his revolutionary Tucker 48.

The flat-six-powered, rear-engined sedan came equipped with numerous safety features considered ahead of their time, such as a shatterproof front windshield, a padded dash, and directional headlights that turned with the wheels.

This Tucker, No. 34 of 51, was recently put on the dyno.

Any guesses on how much power it will make? Do you think it will be close to the originally advertised 166 horsepower?

The upcoming James Bond film "No Time to Die" features some intense driving scenes in which Bond's Aston Martin DB5 takes quite a beating. How does the studio pull it all off?

For starters, you build a replica of a DB5, drop in a BMW straight-six, and then strap professional rally driver Mark Higgens behind the wheel.

Also, if you want to learn more about what it's like to be a stunt driver, we actually interviewed one over on Grassroots Motorsports.

In the 1960s, the Isle of Man-based Peel Engineering Company turned their attention to building cars. On paper, the two that they produced, the P50 and Trident, would be some of the smallest and most inexpensive cars anyone could buy. In reality, however, the two "cars" were not much more than scooters with roofs.

Get an in-depth look at both models with Lane Motor Museum Director Jeff Lane.

Have you ever watched an unboxing video on YouTube? This video from the Lane Motor Museum is kind of like that, but with a shipping container full of unusual cars from Europe that have just been added to the museum's collection.

Here we thought trailering our race cars to and from the track was hard.
