OK, I usually don't like convertibles, I just don't think I look good in them, kinda the way some people should avoid wearing fedoras. But I'd be more than happy hitting the strip in any city driving this bad boy. This 1949 Cadillac Series 62 Convertible Custom "Cad Attack" by Greg Westbury ($80K-$100) is getting ready to go up for auction and if I had six figs laying around, I'd probably be taking a trip to go get this one.Nearly every aspect of this car has been customized, but it still retains all of its Cadillac character. It comes with a 400 horse power, 454 cu. in. V-8 engine. pared with a 700-R4 automatic transmission, modern independent front suspension, coil-spring rear suspension, and four-wheel power disc brakes.Additional features include a Carson-style removable cloth-covered chopped hardtop, and 18-inch and 20-inch Foose wheels wrapped in Z-rated BFGoodrich tires.

The dashboard and other elements match the minimal streamlined interior. More details are available on RM Auctions website.

Slide: The Lexus Hoverboard ($TBA) isn't quite passing the smell test, but it is one heck of a marketing ploy. And if it actually turns out to be real, which I seriously doubt, sign me up for a pre-order. If you go on the Lexus website you'll see them marketing their soon to be released hoverboard called Slide. Slide, if it's real, uses magnetic levitation to achieve frictionless movement. Liquid nitrogen cooled superconductors and permanent magnets are also utilized to create the impossible. Along with the amazing tech you also get premium Lexus styling - including Lexus spindle grille signature shape, materials used in their cars, and natural bamboo. Stay tuned.
