Man Makes Awesome Video, Still Can't Sell His Ford Taurus

An Omaha man is trying to sell his 2002 Ford Taurus for $3,000 on Craigslist. Rather than just take a few pictures and write a description, he decided to give Ford's best selling sedan the attention it deserves with a pretty impressive video. He has gotten a lot of press, but no offers for some odd reason. » 4/16/15 2:21pm 4/16/15 2:21pm

No Chevrolet, "Real People" Aren't Going To Mistake Your Cars For A BMW

Okay Chevrolet, I get that you want to push this "new premium" bit, but grabbing some random people and asking them how nice your interior is isn't going to cut it. I'll give you that Chevy has come along way, and the inside is certainly not a bad place to be. But this...just no. » 4/13/15 12:26pm 4/13/15 12:26pm

Rhys Millen Just Drifted The Crap Out Of That Hellcat On Empty Streets

Ever given thought to what you’d do if you were the last person on earth? Like, if everyone else up and disappeared one day? If (or maybe when) that happens to me, I’m going to do what Rhys Millen did in that Pennzoil ad: Just drift the absolute crap out of a Challenger Hellcat on empty streets at night. » 4/03/15 10:10pm 4/03/15 10:10pm

Rhys Millen Could Totally Drift A Hellcat Hundreds Of Feet In The Air 

Let's be clear about one thing first: this video isn't real. At least, part of it isn't real. Drifting ace Rhys Millen did all the Challenger Hellcat driving for real, he just didn't do it on a platform suspended by helicopters hundreds of feet above the streets of Cape Town. That would be crazy. » 3/27/15 3:01pm 3/27/15 3:01pm

Why Stupid Special Editions Are Actually Pretty Brilliant

Chevy has already crapped out so many Special Edition 2015 Colorado and Silverado pickup trucks it's getting ridiculous, and according to their marketing folks "that's a trend that's going to continue." Other automakers are almost as guilty. I'm starting to think... they may be on to something. » 3/07/15 10:16am 3/07/15 10:16am

If This Video Doesn't Sell You On The McLaren 675LT Then Nothing Will

When an ad team for a supercar maker needs to sell something, I mean really needs to sell a product, they pull out the nuclear option. No, not actually nuking their car, that would be too genius. The real trump card is the soft, classical piano. And then once that's done, you unleash all of the fury. » 3/06/15 11:46am 3/06/15 11:46am

How Subaru's Marketing Is Making People Want Options They Don't Need

Right now car buyers are being convinced by some clever marketing to spend way too much on their next Subaru. I feel it is my responsibility, no, my duty, to reveal a brand new secret to saving money on these cars. All it takes is some focus, diligence, and a keen sense of situational awareness. » 2/27/15 12:13pm 2/27/15 12:13pm

Why Are Automakers Still Using Race Cars To Sell Street Cars?

Back in the 1950's and 60's automakers took their cars to the track with the mantra of "Win on Sunday, sell on Monday." Today, car companies continue to make marketing connections between racing and their production cars, but given the differences in technology and viewership, does it even matter? » 2/04/15 4:10pm 2/04/15 4:10pm

Jeep's Super Bowl Ad Cut The Key Verse Of 'This Land Is Your Land'

Jeep's Super Bowl ad ran soundtracked to Woody Guthrie's This Land Is Your Land following all the versus you had to sing in elementary school. Here's the thing — they missed the later verses, and that's insane, because the message aligns perfectly with (what should be) Jeep's view on private property. » 2/02/15 3:31pm 2/02/15 3:31pm

Oh No, NASCAR Offended The Glutens! Over 14,000 People Can't Take A Joke

NBC just put out a brilliant ad for NASCAR that is the perfect ultra-'Murican celebration of everything hilarious and rad about the sport. However, the Internet Offense Squad got so up in arms about the ad's line about gluten that they're now petitioning for its removal. » 2/01/15 11:32am 2/01/15 11:32am
