The last thing you want to be doing during a torrential downpour is wondering why you didn’t change your wiper blades sooner.

Even if you don’t see a lot of snow where you live, these are still great year-round wiper blades. Thanks to the bracketless design, the Icons remain flexible and hug the natural curve of your windshield to ensure water is always pushed aside.

The 10 most expensive collector cars in the world
Forget about six figures — these seven-, eight-, and nine-figure collector cars drew a lot of attention last year

Last year was a great year for automakers. Luxury brands like Rolls-Royce and Bentley saw their profits skyrocket. The rich got richer and decided to spend more money on cars than ever. While most people were having a hard time finding a car or worrying about how they would be able to afford a large dealer markup, collectors spent ludicrous amounts of money on classic cars.
According to, the top 10 most expensive collector’s cars that sold at auction last year represented a total of $250 million in sales. The most "affordable" car sold at auction for $7,595,000, while the most expensive one was $146,588,400. These are the top 10 most expensive collector cars that sold at auction in 2022.

1954 Ferrari 375 America Vignale Cabriolet – $7,595,000
Ferrari was a much different automaker in the 1950s than it is today. The Italian marque focused a lot more on grand tourers back then, and the Ferrari 375 America is an excellent example of that. The 375 America featured a detuned version of the Lampredi engine from the 375 MM racecar and arrived as a replacement for the 342 America. It was built in incredibly low numbers, as Ferrari only built 10 375 Americas, though two more vehicles that started off as 250 Europas were converted at the factory later on. Buyers had their choice of a few coachwork upgrades from Pinin Farina and Vignale, but what makes this car so special is that it was the only vehicle to have coachwork done by Vignale and be a cabriolet.
This car’s history is also remarkable. The vehicle was personally sold by Enzo Ferrari to Bianca Colizzi, film director Giuseppe Colizzi’s daughter. Remarkably, the vehicle has matching numbers for its engine, gearbox, rear axle, and bodywork. Additionally, it still has its original factory hard top.

10 amazing car leather cleaners to try in 2023

Leather seats were once the gold standard for luxury vehicles. Only high-end models came with real leather upholstery that was soft, attractive, and comfortable. Now, you can find leather upholstery on a wide range of vehicles, including some budget-friendly options, but they're still seen as a luxurious touch over cloth or synthetic leather upholstery. Unlike cloth or even synthetic leather upholstery, leather seats require some maintenance if you want them to remain supple and look good for years.

Without proper maintenance, leather seats can crack, wrinkle, and harden. Park your car in the sun and your leather seats can fade because of the exposure to sunlight. In addition to making your car look old, these imperfections can also make leather seats uncomfortable. Don’t let these issues scare you away from getting leather seats in your car. Using a high-quality cleaner and conditioner to care for your leather upholstery is an easy way to ensure your seats feel and look new for decades.
