As usual, the biggest take-away from the Oscars this year was America's continued love affair with mustard. We've got the Yellow Fever bad, and the Grey Poupon commercial that aired during the Oscars just confirmed that with its huge popularity.  That Grey Poupon commercial was, of course, based on a 1988 original,… » 2/26/13 3:00pm 2/26/13 3:00pm

Man, I feel for this kid. Somewhere in China, it was the first day of school, and our hapless unnamed student is happily riding his bike, his mind presumably full of hope for the coming year, and likely not at all worried about people all over the world reading about the bicycle up his ass.

The velocity stacks on Steve McQueen’s chestnut brown 1963 Ferrari 250 GT Lusso. This is what you got when you had money to blow on cars fifty years ago: lots and lots of little exposed screws. You like, yes? » 2/26/13 1:32pm 2/26/13 1:32pm

Will.I.Am Says He Builds His Custom Cars To 'Teach Kids Science'

Last week we saw Will.I.Am's custom 1958 VW Beetle that supposedly cost $900,000 to build over the course of four years. Why does he do it? To "teach kids science." Yes, science. » 2/26/13 12:45pm 2/26/13 12:45pm

Why I Drive Into Blizzards For Fun

Why am I pointing the wrong way on a freeway, in the middle of Snowstorm Nemo, in a car with no heat, no defroster, no snow tires, and no four-wheel drive? Why am I laughing? Because sometimes the worst drives are the best. » 2/26/13 12:00pm 2/26/13 12:00pm

Add a cockpit to a Mercedes–Benz Silver Arrow and it turns into a speed record mecha with wheels. In October 1934, Rudolf Caracciola used this W25 to break the world record for the one-mile standing start. The same day, on a one-kilometer run, he became the fastest man on a public road, at 197 mph. That road, 30… » 2/26/13 10:15am 2/26/13 10:15am
