Meet The Mini-Camaro GM Designed To Compete With The VW Beetle

I really love looking at stillborn car prototypes. And while it feels weird to type "love looking at stillborn" anything, there's just something about the alternate-world possibilities of them that make seeing these concepts fascinating. And I can't think of anything more fascinating than a Mini-Camaro made to compete… » 11/06/13 4:30pm 11/06/13 4:30pm

This Is What It Looks Like When You Crash At 220 MPH

This past weekend was the Texas Mile, a twice yearly speed fest where hundreds of modified cars descend on Beeville, Texas, to try and set records for the fastest standing mile.
