Building a Porsche 911 GT3 RS

To most people, the name "Mega Bloks" conjures up memories of big, chunky, brightly-colored building blocks in a clear plastic carrying bag - the types of toys meant for young children before they hone their motor skills enough to graduate to LEGO.

Florida Man Steals Golf Cart From Nudist Colony After Failed Lowes…

I have absolutely nothing against Florida at all. It's a nice place with nice beaches. My Grandma used to live there. I went to a great Waffle House in Ocala once. It has Disney World.

What's The Most Mismatched Engine/Car Combination?

A car is a lot like a recipe — you need a lot of different ingredients to make it work.
