Watch A GT-R Smash Into A Flock Of Seagulls (Not The Band) At 160MPH

I know in certain beach communities, we're quite popular with the seagull population, which is why I'm issuing this warning: I think some seagulls get hurt or possibly killed in this video. That GT-R is hauling a significant amount of metric ass when it impacts that seagull flock, and the results aren't great. » 8/27/14 2:08pm Yesterday 2:08pm

BRABUS' Customized Sprinter Is Another Nail In The Limo's Coffin

I've always liked that the tuning company BRABUS has been willing to work their tuning alchemy all across the Benz line, from Smart cars to G-Wagens. So it makes sense that eventually they'd get to the Sprinter. And what they've doing to the vans should help make limos feel like endangered emus. » 8/27/14 12:00pm Yesterday 12:00pm

This Is What A Celebrity Face-Morphing Site Does To Cars

You know those stupid sites that claim to let you see what your love-child with Miley Cyrus or Tyne Daly or Merlin Olsen would look like? Or visualize the offspring of Beyonce and Chris Elliott? Of course you don't; they're stupid. Still, I got the equally stupid idea to see what these face-morphing sites would do… » 8/26/14 10:00pm Tuesday 10:00pm

Alfa Gives Us The Official Line On What's Up With Their Snake Logo

Yesterday, I did some digging into the meaning behind one of the most distinctive and puzzling car maker logos around: the Alfa Romeo 'dragon-eating-a-dude' crest. I was curious about Alfa's official company line on the badge, and, happily, they told me. » 8/26/14 6:30pm Tuesday 6:30pm

This Renault LeCar Van Is The Tiny French Sex Van You Deserve

The biggest problem with Le Car ownership has always been dealing with all the increased sexual appeal one gets when owning the car. Sex in the back of the conventional Le Car is usually too cramped and too exposed via those large windows. If only there was a solution! Guess what, pals: there is. » 8/26/14 2:50pm Tuesday 2:50pm

Yes, That's The Batmobile Being Pulled Over

Well, it's the Canadian Batmobile being pulled over, at least. This was shot on Saturday, in Woodbridge, Ontario, and it looks like it's the 1989 movie Batmobile, a fine choice for city driving. But why was the World's Greatest Detective pulled over? » 8/25/14 8:30pm Monday 8:30pm

I-66 In Virginia Is Becoming A Dali-esque Masterpiece

If you're a fan of the Salvador Dali 'melting stuff' artistic conceit, I suggest taking a drive to Centreville, VA and checking out the rapidly melting highway markings. From above, they sort of look like long strings of ribbon or something. They're pretty festive. And potentially dangerous, I suppose. » 8/25/14 12:32pm Monday 12:32pm

Obscure Air-Cooled VW Fetish Friday: The Country Buggy!

In my continual quest to make every obscure, low-volume air-cooled VW known to all my beloved readers, I'm excited to present you one of my favorite spawns of the Beetle: The Australian Country Buggy. This thing was the Thing before the Thing was a thing. I'll explain. » 8/22/14 5:30pm Friday 5:30pm

2015 Corvette Z06 Is A Deal At $78,995

Let's say you find $80,000 hidden in the abdomen of a horse carcass you find in your apartment. What are you going to do with that money? Buy a house and 3/4 acre of land in Shitsylvania, or are you going to do the smart thing and buy a 650 HP 2015 Corvette Z06 for $78,995? I think we both know how this ends. » 8/22/14 2:00pm Friday 2:00pm

Any Car Could Be Autonomous With A Robot Chauffeur

During my recent trans-continental drive, after about hour 300 of slogging across America's infinitely-wide state, Oklahoma, I found myself daydreaming about the possible benefits of an autonomous car. But I wanted to keep this archaic old RV, so I thought what about an autonomous driver-bot? This should be a thing,… » 8/22/14 12:20pm Friday 12:20pm

A Tribute To The Most Un-Appreciated Light: The Cornering Light

As you may know, I'm weirdly obsessed with vehicle lighting systems. It's unhealthy. My wife has made me leave my collection of marker lights in the closet when we're, um, intimate. But still, I feel there's things I need to address. Like cornering lights. » 8/21/14 6:00pm 8/21/14 6:00pm

Vintage Movies Of Jalopy Races With Elevator Muzak Are Oddly Soothing

These movies seem to have been digitized to promote a company's 8mm to digital transfer services, but they're pretty engaging on their own. The use of elevator-music background tracks with the chaos of mid-century dirt track racing is at first disconcerting, and then gets strangely soothing. » 8/21/14 4:40pm 8/21/14 4:40pm

This Corvair Trike Is A Cooler DeltaWing

There's currently a bit of controversy over the Nissan-Panoz DeltaWing design, but if you ask me, the best thing for all lovers of triangular-shaped cars to do is let the big boys fight it out while the rest of us enjoy this incredible Corvair trike. » 8/21/14 4:00pm 8/21/14 4:00pm
