A 450hp orphan mongrel finds its forever home

This little mutt is an AMC Spirit AMX, a mini-musclecar from the late seventies with flares n’ white-lettered tires n’ a big ol’ hood decal - and a somewhat lamentable 130hp V8. Based on the Gremlin, it’s a sawed-off runt that few remember. Well you’d remember this one: it’s got a 96-inch wheelbase and a built 401ci… » 5/28/15 10:11am Yesterday 10:11am

Watch This Bad Porsche Driver Wipe Out Then Hilariously Wipe Out Again

My thoughts while watching this video: “Oh. Another bad driver. Even managed to wipe out in a Porsche Cayman. Welp, looks like they’re going to try to keep going. Should just pull over. Why do they keep spinning out? What’s wrong with them? Oh – oh yeah. Yep. Yeah. Yeah. That’ll definitely do it.” » 3/30/15 5:52pm 3/30/15 5:52pm

No, This Hill In Canada Isn't Using Magnetic Force To Pull Cars Uphill

There's a hill in New Brunswick, Canada, where something extraordinary happens. If you park your car at the foot of it, and throw it into neutral, your car seemingly starts to roll (completely unassisted!) uphill. Yes, it's real, and, no, it's not for the reason many people think. » 3/25/15 8:54pm 3/25/15 8:54pm

Paratrooper Is Dropped Into Tall Trees, Pulls Off Incredible Landing

Getting dropped into a forest during a static-line jump can end up in pretty horrific injuries, and even death. Mostly because you're basically coming down on a bunch of hundred-foot-plus spears. This Canadian Paratrooper, who jumped out of a C-130 during Exercise Maple Flag, quickly put his training to use, and with… » 3/25/15 6:21pm 3/25/15 6:21pm

This 370-Mile Highway Made of Ice Stretches Through Canada Every Winter

For vast majority of the year, the only way to reach remote but lucrative gold and diamond mines in Canada's northwest is by air. But every winter, something crazy happens. A 370-mile long highway is built almost entirely on ice—and it's strong enough for 70-ton trucks laden with fuel and supplies. » 3/24/15 3:16pm 3/24/15 3:16pm

Drunk-Driver Calls 911 On Himself, Patiently Awaits Cops Because Canada

Is it the cold? Is it the cold that somehow freezes the parts of their brains that should make Canadians into assholes? Is that why, when you hear that a guy driving drunk pulled over and called the cops on himself, it's not a shock to hear he's Canadian? Maybe it's something in poutine? » 3/23/15 9:39am 3/23/15 9:39am

Man Pulled Over For Doing Paltry 140 MPH In Fastest Car In The World

We were sent a tip, from Canada, claiming that a man in a Chevy Malibu was busted going 226 KPH, or 140 MPH, on a highway in Nova Scotia. I immediately discounted this, as the thought of any Malibu doing 140 is frankly absurd, let alone in Canada. But then I saw the buried lead. It was a rental. » 2/10/15 6:25pm 2/10/15 6:25pm

Lamborghini transformed into expensive lawnmower

They must be accustomed to wet roads up in Surrey, British Colombia. Even if they aren't experts in the rain at a minimum they're Canadian, so you'd expect local drivers to be courteous and friendly and generally very likable, even the Lamborghini-driving ones. All my expectations for our northern friends are blown… » 12/22/14 2:26pm 12/22/14 2:26pm

Q: Is This Guy Still Trying to Back Out of a Parking Lot? A: Yes

An incredibly inept BMW driver got trapped in a snowy parking lot hell of his own making last week. The resulting surveillance video is a profound lesson in expectations—just when you think theres no way this guy is going to get boxed in again, he goes and gets blocked in again. » 12/08/14 8:25am 12/08/14 8:25am

This Super Hornet Ad With Kids Showing Off Their Toy Jets Is Genius

This Super Hornet ad, made for Canadian consumption, is quite amusing and hits home some glaring issues in regards to the F-35's affordability. Canada has had an F-35 saga of their own over the last half decade, and finally Ottawa has decided to modernize its CF-18 Hornet fleet yet again in order to by some decision… » 11/08/14 5:00pm 11/08/14 5:00pm

Canada's First Air Strike Against ISIS Hits... A Dump Truck?!

Last week we discussed the RCAF Hornets' puzzling weapons load as they entered the anti-ISIS air campaign over Iraq. Now we have learned that they have dropped their first live ordnance during a mission over western Iraq on Sunday. Although details remain scarce, CTVNews is reporting that the target of the air strike… » 11/04/14 12:33pm 11/04/14 12:33pm

Canada Wades Into The Fight Against ISIS With Dated Weaponry

A pair of CF-18 Hornets, a CC-150 Polaris tanker-transport and a CP-140 Aurora took to the skies above Iraq yesterday as part of the international mission that is now known officially as Operation Inherent Resolve. This was Canada's first aerial foray into the battle against ISIS militants in Iraq. » 11/01/14 6:44pm 11/01/14 6:44pm
