Rubbin's Racin' And Pushin's Shovin' For Angry NASCAR Racers In Iowa

Ryan Reed was not happy with Ross Chastain driving into him the wall during the green-white-checkered finish of last night’s NASCAR Xfinity Series race. The two exchanged stern words and pointed fingers after the race, but it’s safe to say that a different finger was implied in Reed’s post-race push.

Go Inside Cadillac's Monster ATS-V.R Race Car

I’m an unapologetic fan of the Cadillac ATS-V.R GT3-spec racer. It’s my favorite car on the Pirelli World Challenge grid, partly because I like the street ATS-V and partly because American racecars running against vastly more expensive European competitors is one of our proudest traditions. (Also, that batshit crazy … » 8/02/15 12:41pm Today 12:41pm

Why Buy A V6 Ford Mustang When This 200 MPH Mercedes SL600 Is Cheaper? 

When I was younger and much less incorrigible, I remember seeing a car that forced me to stop and stare, jaw unceremoniously agape. That car was a Mercedes SL600, just like this beautiful example. What’s even more mind boggling is that you can now buy it for entry level Mustang money and have enough change left over… » 8/02/15 12:12pm Today 12:12pm

This Is What U.S.-Russian Relations Could Have Been

This amazing photo shows fighting machines that were built as enemies, the B-52 Stratofortress and the Tu-95 Bear, along with the later Cold War era KC-10 Extender and An-124 Condor, all sitting together peacefully on the same ramp.

Swing-wings, a sleek and flowing fuselage, and four big GE-F101 turbofans pointing out the back: the B-1B’s silhouette is ominous to say the least.

The McLaren MP4-12C's Doors Are Assholes

In case you haven’t looked at a calendar in a few years, it’s 2015. This means that exotic supercars that were $250k in 2012 have now depreciated down to about $155k. They are great buys if you have the cash and, with the 12C, enjoy looking like a moron while trying to open a car door that doesn’t have handles. » 8/01/15 2:42pm Yesterday 2:42pm
