Chevy's Anti-Aluminum Truck Ads Are Bullshit

Chevy’s got a new batch of videos knocking Ford for making the 2015 F-150 out of aluminum. The ads are well produced, but remarkably dumb. Chevy’s dead-set on selling “aluminum” as “weak” and ergo unfit to be truck-making stuff, but that argument is fundamentally idiotic.http://truckyeah.jalopnik.com/why-the-alumin... » 7/21/15 3:38pm 7/21/15 3:38pm

When To Call Bullshit On Mail From Stealerships

If you have ever contacted or done business with any dealership, you know your email inbox gets blasted with “HUGE SAVINGS” until you “unsubscribe.” Dealers know this method is fairly ineffective, but it is cheap and easy. Now some stealerships are targeting your mailbox instead of your inbox. » 7/07/15 2:37pm 7/07/15 2:37pm

How Honda Revealed The Government's Top Secret Stealth Bomber First

The aircraft known in popular culture as the stealth bomber was built with nearly a decade of work, billions of dollars, and total secrecy from the U.S. government. Even the contractors who worked on it didn't always know what it was. So how did a Japanese carmaker reveal it before the Air Force? » 7/04/15 12:32pm 7/04/15 12:32pm

Potholes In Panama Are Literally Crying Out For Help On Twitter

Potholes are the garbage of roads. But they’re also the bane of the existence of drivers in Panama City, a gleaming metropolis of skyscrapers and beauty, which was so busy building all of it that it forgot about its actual roads. One company sought to change that, by having the potholes tweet about it every time a… » 6/03/15 4:20pm 6/03/15 4:20pm

This Old Volkswagen 'Terrorist' Commercial Isn't What You Think It Is

You might remember this Volkswagen Polo ad from the earlier part of the last decade, along with the Star Wars Kid and everything else you saw on eBaumsworld. You might remember it being “banned,” or just that it was an ad that “VW doesn’t want you to see!” But it isn’t that at all.

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
