NYC Man Vandalizes Parked Cars, Can't Spell "Shitbag"

In today's edition of "two wrongs don't make a right" a man in Queens, NY vandalized two cars Tuesday night because he allegedly didn't like their parking skills. I don't like bad parking as much as the next guy but this is a little bit ridiculous. » 7/24/14 1:15pm 40 minutes ago

A Demolition Derby In Little Euro Shitboxes Is Even Scarier

Demolition derbies have always been one of those events I always associate with massive, Malaise-era Detroit land-yachts. And for good reason— they're great at them. Massive acreages of hood, huge battering-ram bumpers, overhangs the size of decks. Maybe that's why seeing tiny 2L and under Euro cars do it is so… » 7/24/14 1:00pm 55 minutes ago

Why Can't We Protect Commercial Planes From Attacks?

Last week's downing of Malaysian Airlines Flight 17 over the disputed territory of Eastern Ukraine has set off worldwide outcries against the conflict, and calls to better defend commercial airlines from missile attack.

An Elite F-14 Flight Officer Explains Why The Tomcat Was So Influential

We sat at the end of the runway, our F-14's GE-110 motors humming, awaiting our clearance to begin what would be the last F-14 Demonstration ever. The Air Boss's voice crackled over the radio: "Tomcat Demo, you're cleared to five miles and 15k feet. The air show box is yours" At that very moment, I distinctly remember… » 7/24/14 12:05pm Today 12:05pm

The '732 Lbs Lighter' 2015 Ford F-150 V6 Was Weighed Against A 2014 V8

It is very impressive that a 2015 Ford F-150 Lariat four-door, one of the model's heavier setups, will only weigh 4,942 pounds. But it's important you know part of that "732 pound weight savings" came from the 2014 having a V8, while the 2015 had Ford's new 2.7 V6. » 7/24/14 11:47am Today 11:47am

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 Today 10:36am

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

From Lust to Love, an Age-Old Story of Automotive Romance

I'm a married man, in love with his wife. Before I was in love with her, though, I was in lust. That love-at-first-sight mumbo jumbo is a farce — it was the initial physical attraction that prompted the first date, which led to love, marriage, and a baby in a baby carriage. This formula is not exclusive to human… » 7/24/14 12:00pm Today 12:00pm
