Enthusiasts love high-performance wagons and this 2006 Dodge Magnum SRT8 will likely pull at their heartstrings.

Set to be auctioned by Mecum next month, the car is in “highly original condition” and has spent most of its life in a climate controlled storage facility. As a result, it has only been driven 2,169 miles (3,491 km) in the past 14 years.

There’s no word on why the car wasn’t driven much, but the Magnum is in excellent condition as it’s Inferno Red Crystal Pearl paint job appears flawless and there aren’t any signs of rust or damage.

The interior is immaculate as well as it doesn’t look like anyone has ever used the two-tone sports seats with red contrast stitching. While it’s heavy on cheap plastic, the cabin also features a leather-wrapped steering wheel, a sunroof and an infotainment system with GPS navigation. Of course, the real coup de grâce is a cargo capacity of 71.6 cubic feet (2,027 liters) which is a bit less than the 2021 Durango’s 85.1 cubic feet.

Besides the roomy interior, the Magnum SRT8 has a 6.1-liter V8 engine that produces 425 hp (317 kW / 431 PS) and 420 lb-ft (569 Nm) of torque. It’s connected to a five-speed automatic transmission which sends power to the rear wheels.

This allows the wagon to accelerate from 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) in the low five second range and run the quarter mile in around 13 seconds. That’s slightly slower than the 2021 Durango 392 which hits 60 mph (96 km/h) in 4.4 seconds and can run the quarter mile in an NHRA-certified 12.9 seconds.

While the old timer can’t keep with up younger whippersnappers, the SRT8 featured a number of upgrades over lesser Magnums. Among the changes were a Brembo braking system and a sport-tuned suspension with retuned springs, Bilstein dampers and beefier anti-sway bars.

There’s no auction estimate, but the 2006 Magnum SRT8 originally started at $37,995.

Believe it or not, it has been 10 years since the Lexus LFA was launched and while there are some low-mileage examples out for sale out there, only wealthy individuals can afford the Japanese automaker’s most famous performance model.

Good thing then there’s a way around that – well, sort of. To celebrate its 10th anniversary, Lexus has launched a scale paper model of the supercar that can be made at home, which is not a bad way to spend some time during the holiday period.

There are four full-size Lexus LFA templates right below. The first is finished in white with a black roof, the second in orange, the third has a Gazoo Racing livery inspired by the LFA race car, and the fourth if finished in blue. Lexus recommends printing the template on an A3 sheet of paper to make construction easier and to give you a larger model. If you don’t have access to an A3 printer, A4 paper will work just fine.

In addition to paper, those want to create their own LFA will need some paper glue or double-sided tape and a pair of scissors.

Full instructions:

Step 1: Download a high-resolution PDF template of the model. There are four designs to choose from, each highlighting a different element of the LFA’s history. If you have the option, print the document inn A3 rather than A4 size, as this will make the construction easier and will give you a bigger model at the end.

Step 2: Cut out the templates, being careful not to leave off the tabs. For each of the following steps, you will need to fold and glue each of tabs to the relevant panel.

Step 3: Start gluing the individual parts together. Take the roof panels and attach the two windows.

Step 4: Build the front of the LFA using the two pieces provided. The third piece will be needed later.

Step 5: Create the four wheels and axles. Roll the black tires into wheel shapes, folding in the tabs, and then attaching the wheel hub. Create the axles by carefully folding the paper along the lines.

Step 6: Next, attach the rear to the sides of the car.

Step 7: Fold down the rear.

Step 8: Affix the top of the doors to the sides of the car. You can see in the picture that one of the doors has already been attached on the right-hand side.

Step 9: Prepare the underneath of the model. Cut the holes in the black tabs – this will allow the axles to run through the model. Then turn the model upside down. Fold the rear of the car and the holes upwards.

Step 10: Attach the sides of the car using the tabs on the rear and center of the underbody section.

Step 11: Attach the bonnet to the roof section. Then, working from rear to front, attach the roof to the tabs on the side of the car.

Step 12: At this point the LFA should start to take shape. Take one end of the axle and attach the wheel, push it through the holes in the model and attach the other wheel when done. Repeat this for the second axle and wheels.

Step 13: Add the additional front piece (referenced in step four) to the bottom. Then attach the front. If building the Nürburgring Edition or racing version, add the spoiler to the rear.

A New York man is lucky to be alive after spending more than 10 hours buried under 4 feet (1219 mm) of snow.

According to the New York State Police, 58 year old Kevin Kresen went off the side of the road during a recent snowstorm. While that’s bad enough, a snow plow came by and buried his car.

Kresen made a number of calls to 911 asking for assistance and officers responded. However, his car was buried under so much snow, they couldn’t locate it. Making matters even worse was the fact that the serpentine belt was broken, meaning Kresen was trapped without heat.

Thankfully, his luck changed the following morning as Sergeant Jason Cawley contacted Tioga County 911 to see if any emergency calls were pending from the snowstorm. He was informed about Kresen, so he started searching for him along State Route 17C in the town of Owego.

However, he was unsuccessful as the car was covered by the snow. Despite this, Cawley noticed “what appeared to be a row of mailboxes and waded through the snow to check the addresses.”

In a miraculous turn of events, Cawley hit the windshield of Kresen’s car while digging to check on the mailboxes. He then freed the man after being trapped in his car for more than ten hours. Following the rescue, Kresen was taken to the hospital to be treated for hypothermia and frostbite.
