Watch Your Ass, Someone Might Steal Your Tailgate

It's pretty easy to remove the tailgate from most trucks. All you have to do is pull the handle, flip the gate halfway down, and pull it off the tabs. Theives have picked up on that, and according to statistics from the National Insurance Crime Bureau, tailgate theft is up 18 percent this year. Since 2006, 1,345… » 2/18/13 12:53pm 2/18/13 12:53pm

Driving India's Jeep In A Desert Rally Without The Burden Of Skill

I knew I wanted to drive a Thar long before I had any idea I'd ever get to India. I was interested because it's one of the best automotive examples of evolution to an environment. Think of it this way: both the Thar and the Jeep we Americans know and love started with the same source: the WWII-era Willys Jeep. This… » 2/18/13 12:00pm 2/18/13 12:00pm

How An Army Convoy Crossed America In 56 Days To Prove We Needed Better…

America is probably the best place on Earth for long road trips. Fuel is cheap, food is plentiful, and the roads — they're amazing. But the U.S. of A. wasn't always a land of long, smooth stretches of tarmac you could sail across at 80 mph in almost any weather. A century ago, driving cross-country in America wasn't… » 2/18/13 9:54am 2/18/13 9:54am

Tesla Road Trip - Debunking the New York Times

Late Friday night I came across a blog post saying that some Tesla Model S owners were going to attempt to recreate the now infamous DC to CT road trip in a convoy of Tesla Model S. By this point, CNN had already completed the same journey and done a lot of the debunking, but you could still hear the chorus of… » 2/18/13 9:40am 2/18/13 9:40am

For $12,900, Could This E36 Be The LS1 For You?

Part of the reason BMWs are so venerated is due to their amazing engines. That’s why it’s so puzzling that so many people - like the present owner of today’s Nice Price or Crack Pipe E36 - decide to dump them for Chevy V8s. Another puzzle for you is whether this LS1-powered coupe is worth dumping nearly thirteen large… » 2/18/13 8:00am 2/18/13 8:00am

Mini Pulls Off World's First Successful Backflip In A Car

When you make energy drinks, it's not enough to just sell them to the general public. You have to sponsor crazy activities so people know you're serious about the energy in your drink. Red Bull has a couple of Formula One teams and once made a guy jump out of a space balloon; now Monster Energy had a rally driver do… » 2/17/13 4:30pm 2/17/13 4:30pm

Danica Patrick Becomes First Woman to Win a Top Tier NASCAR Pole,…

Yes, for the first time ever, a woman will lead a NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race to the green flag as Danica Patrick wins the pole for the Daytona 500. of course, plate qualifying isn't really about the driver as much as it is about the team, so that's really not her accomplishment so much as it is Crew Chief Tony… » 2/17/13 3:32pm 2/17/13 3:32pm

This Could Be the Year You Quit Wasting 91,980 Minutes Behind the Wheel

Each year the average American spends 1,533 hours driving a car — 64 full days of getting from point A to point B. That's equivalent to watching every episode of Breaking Bad 32.6 times (don't put it past me). As a driver, it's your duty to own this potential, and lots of car companies are already willing to help you… » 10/30/14 12:00pm Yesterday 12:00pm

Help Write the Forza Horizon 2 Travel Guide, Win an Xbox One and an HDTV

Okay, Europe is pretty awesome as a travel destination, but it has its difficulties. It's expensive to get there, communicating with the locals can be difficult, and even if blazing around the hairpin turns of the Amalfi Coast didn't already present the serious possibility of death, what's the point if you can't do it… » 10/27/14 12:00pm Monday 12:00pm
