eBay Challenge: How Much Horsepower Can You Get For $1,000?

Recently, I was asked why I don't post things to reflect the car-buying wallet of the extremely cash-strapped enthusiast. Since I'm not one to back down from a challenge, but am extremely lazy, I'll ask the ever-vigilant internet horde to find me the car on eBay with the most horsepower, for a whopping $1000 budget. » 7/24/14 10:36am 7 minutes ago

Man Gets Run Over by His Own Pickup Truck During Road Rage

Joseph H. Carl was driving home from a bar in Gainesville, Fla. Tuesday when he rear-ended a car that was stopped at a red light. Drunk and enraged, he got out of his pickup truck and began banging on the windows of the vehicle he'd just hit. If only he'd remembered to put it in park first. » 7/24/14 10:14am 29 minutes ago

The 6.2 V8 Ford F-150 Is Officially Dead For 2015, And Good Riddance

"The F-150 is dropping the 6.2 V8 for 2015. The 3.5 EcoBoost will become the premium engine, it along with the 5.0 will be carried over... but stay tuned for the new output of those engines." Ford told me last night. Guess that pretty much confirms we're looking at a turbo Raptor in the pipeline. » 7/24/14 9:36am Today 9:36am

​SRT Stuffed A Thermonuclear Weapon Into The Hellcat

So I guess it's time to talk about this engine. Although simply calling it an engine is like calling Goldberg a wrestler.

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.

More American Car Buyers Want The Diesel

For awhile it seemed like the only people who liked diesels were truck drivers and us Jalops. Even though diesel vehicles only make up 3% of the market, US sales are up 25%. This is good news for people like us who want some fun to go with our fuel economy. » 7/23/14 9:01pm Yesterday 9:01pm

The Fascists In Quebec Just Banned Your Hellaflush Car Yo

Those nogoodniks up in the frozen French north of Quebec just decided to ban your sweet, sweet hellaflush ride, all because stancing it out affects handling and maneuverability in a province with snow nine months out of the year. But we all know that really, it's just The Man trying to keeping you down. » 7/23/14 8:15pm Yesterday 8:15pm

Ninja Turtles 'Pizza Thrower' Is Ready, Here's How YOU Can Shoot A Pizza

Here's the first picture of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles "Pizza Thrower" truck on its way to Comic-Con where attendees will be able to shoot pizzas (albeit faux to avoid food waste) at targets like Shredder and The Foot Clan. You'd hardly recognize a 2002 Toyota Tacoma under there, right? » 7/23/14 6:50pm Yesterday 6:50pm

Rhapsody in Revs: A Love Letter to the Jaguar F-TYPE Exhaust Note

When it comes to the Jaguar F-TYPE, there are a few things I think we can all agree on. First, it's beautiful — especially in coupe form. These galleries are proof.
