What Is This Mystery Ford Concept Wagon?

As I've been packing up the near-get-me-institutionalized levels of crap in my house, I occasionally come across something more interesting than a desiccated squirrel carcass or a box of Sega cartridges.

There's Some Amazing Stuff At The Upcoming Collector Car Auction

In honor of Collector Car Appreciation Day on July 11 (oops), Auctions America is holding a big auction of some really interesting collectible cars. They were nice enough to let me check out some of them before the July 31 auction. I'm pretty sure my presence devalued the cars a bit, so, you're welcome, bidders. » 7/22/14 9:00pm Tuesday 9:00pm

This Ad For The Brickyard 400 Is The Greatest NASCAR Ad Of All Time

One of the great joys in life is getting to see evidence that someone has gone irretrievably, delightfully insane. Or, in this case, mensane, as in insane from over-saturation in insane men musk, which the Brickyard seems to be laden with.

I respect that. Even so, I can't help but look at that team photo and feel my squee gland secrete awwwrotonin. » 7/17/14 7:49pm 7/17/14 7:49pm

How Many Hellcats Would It Take To Match A Moon Rocket?

Yesterday was the anniversary of the Apollo 11 launch, and while the actual moon landing part of the whole thing tends to get the most attention, the launch itself was nothing at which to sneeze.

Thrill To The Weirdest Honda Ever Made!
