60 MPH:Anytime you can say you're part of a "friction reduction campaign" it's probably signaling a good time, whether or not there's a Maserati involved. Of course we're talking about the Slip n' Slide. What did you think, potty brain.

50 MPH: Next time you hear "King of the Hammers," don't think it has anything to do with a hardware chain run by a flamboyant character who advertises on local cable. It's about extreme rock crawling, which looks downright Sisyphean to us. No, that doesn't mean they're a bunch of sissies.

40 MPH: Porsche may not want to admit it, but among German officials, longstanding P-car tuner Rüf is considered a manufacturer. That means it's eligible for government cash to develop electric cars. Uh-oh, that means the two companies are clashing head-on in the battle to develop a viable electric Porsche. Now, if anyone actually gave a shit, this could have gotten interesting.

30 MPH:The professional jockey grade GMC Granite will go into production sometime in late 2012/early 2013. What we really want is the Granite CPU Concept mini-truck (pictured here).

20 MPH: Wait, someone on VWVortex saw a Chrysler Sebring on the road and it didn't look half bad? Newsflash: wrenching on VWs and Audis causes eye trouble.

10 MPH: Remember the days when carmakers produced more cars then they could sell, then incentivized the hell out of their cars, devaluing both the cars and their brands? That, or something that looks a lot like it, appears to be happening in the car market. Carpocalypse 2.0 in 3, 2, 1...oh hell it's President's Day, what do you expect?

0 MPH: Want to race up a Nevada hill in your own car? Yes you can. The annual Spectre 341 Challenge is now open to John Q. Yourself. All you need is a fire extinguisher and NOT a convertible. This guy did it.
