1) There were six men travelling down a road. It started to rain and five men sped up, the sixth did not. They all arrived at the same place at the same time. All of them were wet, besides the fifth. How?

These types of riddles are problematic, as there are several solutions to them. I will give one possible solution:

“There were six men travelling down a road.”
– It does not state that they were travelling down the same road. So it is possible that they could have been travelling down separate paths.
“It started to rain and five men sped up, the sixth did not.”
– The sixth man’s path begun from a closer point to the destination that was being traveled to.
“They all arrived at the same place at the same time.”
– The fifth and sixth men started travelling from different places, (the sixth is explained above, and the fifth is explained below) arrived at the same time.
“All of them were wet, besides the fifth. How?”
– The riddle leaves how the men were travelling, to the imagination of the person asked to solve it. It is possible that the fifth man was travelling in a car to the destination. How he arrived at the same place at the same time, is answered by that he would have started travelling (read, driving) from a further distance than the rest of the group. Hence the reason why he was not wet, as he was in a car.

2) A man was going to buy a \$7000 car but he didn’t pay a penny for the car how is this possible?
– The key to the answer here is the wording of the riddle. There are two solutions that come to mind right now:
a) He WAS going to buy the car, but never ended up purchasing it. Hence no PENNY being spent.
b) The car was purchased without the use of a physical penny, rather other forms of currency (eg: cents and/or dollars).

3) It is a snowman
“I am a man without bones,”
– Snow has no bones
“my flesh is white,”
– Snow is white (unless altered)
“I am a man without blood,”
– Snow has no blood
“my flesh is cold,”
– Snow is cold
“my flesh is shrinking,”
– It was a sunny day, and the snow is melting, causing its ‘skin’ to ‘shrink’
“I am the man you made and lost”
– The snowman was made by you, and has since melted, and is now ‘lost’

1- Travelling to riding in something. Therefore, regardless who is driving they will all arrive at the same time and the same conditions (wet).
2- No problem. The money is paid to the seller NOT the car.
3- Snowman

your approach is good but the only problem is that all but one increased the speed, so the answer is not consistent with the fact for answer no.1.
