* [[Carl Barks]] reused the idea of [[Scrooge McDuck|Scrooge]] owning an antique car a few years later in ''[[Chugwagon Derby]]'' (1961), where he reveals the car to be a [[Rolls-Regal Horseless Shay]]. [[Don Rosa]] would then show the Shay brand-new in ''[[The Empire-Builder from Calisota]]'' (1994), the tenth chapter of his ''[[The Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck|Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck]]''. However, the Horseless Shay has a markedly different design from the old car seen here, and its circumstances in the 1961 story leave no room for Scrooge to have taken it for a ride, let alone bought spare parts for it, in 1958. At any rate, a pin featuring Scrooge driving a car similar to the 1958 model was released in 2004.

The story was first printed in 1958 in ''Uncle Scrooge'' #22. It was reprinted in ''Uncle Scrooge'' #223, in the various ''Carl Barks Libraries'', in the Australian ''Giant'' #185, and, in the United Kingdom, in ''Mickey and Friends'' #1993-46 and ''World Distributors'' #52. It is in the former of these two British printings that it received the title of ''Cars Old And New!'', the only time it was printed with a title of any kind, although [[INDUCKS]] ascribes to it the title of ''Going to Pieces'', without a source.
