VW's Only Officially-Approved Christmas Story Has A Jolly Green Beetle

Back in the '60s, Volkswagen was eager to corner the under-12 market. They were in a good position: the Beetle, looking like a giant toy, was appealing to kids, so they just needed to sweeten the pot a bit and get the kids into dealers. That's why they made special holiday books like this. Too bad kids are always… » 12/24/14 12:00pm 12/24/14 12:00pm

I Really Wish This Wasn't A Hoax

If this 1968 Dodge Charger manual was real, this would easily go down in history as the baddest-ass owner's manual in all of human culture. Sadly, it's not, but that doesn't mean we can't take a moment to really appreciate it. » 12/17/14 9:35pm 12/17/14 9:35pm

These Transforming Famous Cars Are Such A Great Idea

Ever see something and thing, holy crap, I wish I thought of that? I sure have. In fact, I'm thinking that right now, as I type this, about this wonderful series of drawings called If They Transformed by Darren Rawlings. » 12/01/14 2:20pm 12/01/14 2:20pm

Check Out The Amazing Evolution Of F1 As Shown Through A Kid's Toys

I can't believe I haven't seen this already; it was first shown before the 2013 Brazil GP, and shows the evolution of F1 through a child's toy cars, on a kid-built playroom-rug track. I'm pretty sure it uses either some powerful magic or CG for the transitions, but the effect is fantastic. » 11/03/14 4:57pm 11/03/14 4:57pm

This Is The Very First Color Photograph Of A Car

I've been trying to hunt down some firsts for cars in various artistic media — first painting of a car, first photo, and so on. I haven't had much luck so far, but I do think I have the answer to at least one subset: I think this is the first color photograph of a car. » 10/02/14 10:00pm 10/02/14 10:00pm

VW's Ads Were Once Gloriously Delusional

Before VW's famous, understated and witty DDB ad campain from the '60s, they weren't that different from any car maker when it came to advertising. That means they didn't necessarily feel so restricted by pesky, silly ideas like "the picture of the car looks like the one you're selling." As a result, early ads were...… » 9/30/14 8:00pm 9/30/14 8:00pm

Have Some Interesting Car-Drawing Tips From A Guy Who Drew Dick Tracy

I love drawing cars, and I also love watching other people draw cars. Which is probably why I find these sketches from Richard Fletcher, the man who assisted and drew the Dick Tracy comic strip from 1961-1983. Cars weren't the focus of the strip, but it's interesting to see how they were dealt with. » 8/20/14 10:00pm 8/20/14 10:00pm

Look At This Amazing 300 Foot Mercedes Sculpture At Goodwood

At this weekend's Goodwood Festival of Speed, Mercedes-Benz is celebrating 120 years of participating in motorsport. And they're doing it in a way that's about as subtle as the S-Class Coupe — with a nearly 300 foot arch over Goodwood House with two race cars driving on it. » 6/27/14 12:12pm 6/27/14 12:12pm

Cars With Steve Buscemi's Eyes

You've probably heard of the Steve Bucemi's Eyes meme, right? It's been around a while, and it's still going strong. It's basically just replacing people's eyes with the soulful peepers of Steve Buscemi. Still, it hasn't really had much to offer us, as car enthusiasts. Until now. » 6/12/14 2:41pm 6/12/14 2:41pm

Enjoy The Only Christian/Sci-Fi Themed Animated Driver's Ed Movie Ever

Driver's Ed movies are usually one of two things: gory or boring. Generally, they usually aren't charming, gently Methodist-tinted stories of the adventures of car-like beings from another planet. Generally. But that's not the case with Stop Driving Us Crazy. » 5/07/14 10:00pm 5/07/14 10:00pm

My friend Alexandra is a photographer in the UK, and recently she, quite by chance, found the West of England Transport Collection, an amazing cache of over 200 old buses, fire engines, and other commercial vehicles.

These Toy VW Photos Are All Kinds Of Charming

Kim Luenberger is a Swiss photographer studying in London, and she has an unusual knack for taking photos of toy cars in interesting environments. That's a pretty specific skill, but, as you can see in the photos, it's easy to appreciate, like Petrolicious does. » 4/24/14 11:00pm 4/24/14 11:00pm

Homer's Odyssey In A Honda Odyssey Is A Terrifying Use Of A Minivan

It's definitely possible the Honda Odyssey will become some sort of fixture in future college theatre projects, as a symbol of suburban life in the 2000s. And it's always useful in reinterpreting the Odyssey. The one by Homer. Not that Homer. » 2/20/14 10:01pm 2/20/14 10:01pm
