There is nothing wrong with planning for the future. If you are a cab driver, or a truck driver, or an Uber driver, now is the time to plan for what you will do when your job disappears. And for what we should do for you.
You need more than just a brochure to convince someone to spend $2.6 million on a supercar. So when Bugatti wanted to tease its upcoming Chiron, the follow-up to its revered Veyron, last year, it had to turn to the special effects wizards at SLGH to fake a CG version for a promo video, because the car didn’t quite…
Every time a kid sends a Hot Wheels car hurdling down a twisty track, in the back of their mind they’re imagining what it would be like to be at the wheel of that tiny vehicle. With a GoPro Hero4 Session strapped to the roof, this video, featuring eight different track sections cleverly edited together, is as close as…
As the saying goes, you’re not stuck in traffic. You are traffic. Whenever you’re on the freeway with a thousand other cars crawling along at a snail’s pace, you may feel helpless, but there are things you can do to help ease congestion.
Welcome to Titanic Thursday. It is what it sounds like—a day to talk about the 1997 Academy Award-winning film Titanic.
Have you ever wondered why you don’t see people wearing Rolls Royce’s hood ornaments dangling from a necklace? It’s because the Spirit of Ecstasy, as the hood ornament is obnoxiously called, is protected by a brilliantly over-engineered mechanism that causes it to retract and disappear if tampered with.
Last month, a driver swerved into the bike lane on Grand Street in Williamsburg and knocked Matthew van Ohlen off of his bike, then ran over his body and dragged him 20 to 30 feet, killing him. Police recovered the driver’s Camaro a few days later, but they still have not yet made an arrest. Why not?
There are so many dump trucks and pavers and road rollers paving Moscow’s Tverskaya Street in this time lapse that it looks like a massive swarm of machines have taken over Russia. The smaller road rollers look and move a lot like the little planes that launch from the mothership (which, in this case would be the dump…
The buzz hasn’t entirely died from that fatal Tesla crash in May, or the one that happened this week, but Elon Musk is already looking ahead.
Being offered a free Lexus GS F for the weekend felt like being offered custody of the child of a distant relative who had just died. Of course I said yes, but deep down I wished it might just get lost before it ever got to me, because I have other things to do.
I’m going to go out on a limb and say that a safe 102% of the readers of this site are fans of both cars and a vast and disgusting variety of sexual acts. And that’s great. My stand on cars is well established (quite pro) and when it comes to sex, I can’t think of a more enjoyable way to get the maximum genetic…
I believe I’ve made my position regarding one of the most important philosophical issues known to mankind, where the eyes of an anthropomorphized car should be, abundantly clear: the headlights. The eyes of a car-face are the headlights. This is the right answer, the just answer, the moral answer.
How many of you are going to a Cars & Coffee event this weekend? Today was my first in the foggy city of Charlotte, NC. I had a blast.
Good news, everyone! It’s Thursday! Actually it’s currently Wednesday and I’m writing this early so I can walk around Monterey car week and gawk at vehicles valued higher than the entire economy of Charleston, West Virginia. This is normally the point where I’d tell you to follow me on Twitter for pictures, but I…
The key thing to know about Pixar's "Motorama" car show is that it predates the movie Cars. That makes sense, if you think about it. Only a genuinely car-addled company would even make movies like Cars in the first place. It's an employees-only affair, but I managed to score an invite so I could show you the cars that…
Maybe you've heard about the Pixar Theory that got a lot of play last week (and this week, too). It's a comprehensive timeline and interlocking story that weaves together every Pixar movie into one coherent whole. It was developed by Jon Negroni, and possibly an anthropomorphic desk lamp that only talks to Jon.
It's winter for most in the United States, and if you're driving you get the fun chore of defrosting your windshield each morning. That is, unless you follow the advice of one redditor who realized you can let the sun do the work for you:
When it comes to automobiles, the conventional wisdom is you need four wheels or more. So why are there cars driving around with three wheels? We'll take a look at the science (and the economics) of tossing out one of your wheels.
