If you’ll allow me this one time, I’m taking the all but unprecedented step of selecting a Comment of the Day not from the day, but from the previous day. When you see what it is, I think you’ll understand.
Today we saw tech gazillionaire Larry Page’s ‘flying car,’ the Kitty Hawk. Pretty clearly, it is not a flying car. But maybe it’s something else.
Our friend Mr. Regular needed to put some miles on his rebuilt Ford Falcon, so he spent the summer picking up hitchhikers along the Appalachian Trail. I highly encourage you to read his missive on the whole ordeal.
One of Steven Spielberg’s first films is Duel, a made-for-TV movie from 1971 that’s since become a kind of a cult hit. In it, the owner of a very ordinary car squares off against a psychopathic, unseen truck driver who tries to murder him out on the road.
Our very own Alanis King went on a wheelie-poppin’ thrill ride around Circuit of the Americas on the back of a 170 mph MotoAmerica race bike. The only issue is, we didn’t have a microphone inside her helmet to hear exactly what she thought while hanging on for dear life.
I know, I know: online security is a thing we should all be proactive above. But how am I expected to remember 20 different passwords, some of which have symbols and some of which don’t? And if that’s not enough, now there are sites where you can go to check your password security strength that will shame you if…
Today we learned a Ford Mustang owner blamed a squirrel for the latest documented example of Mustang fuckery. Sure, guy! Sure. Squirrels and digital tire gauges, they’ll do it every time.
Man has long asked, “what is good beer?” Such a theological question is not an easy one to answer.
History can be fun. The fun history started today with Reagan’s take on a 1984 Saturn prototype, but the dish of knowledge kept on serving down in the comments.
Honestly, I expected more from you all.
What does it mean to be a “People’s Car?” Volkswagen still has it in the name, in German, but the brand hasn’t felt that way in a long time.
I edited Ken Saito’s latest piece on Japan’s craziest parking lot and I could barely get through it. Too many cars, man. TOO MANY CARS.
You might think you’re getting more power out of your 1.8T Jetta by using the low-lead jet fuel you manage to snag from the graveyard shift of your local airport, but you are actually likely doing very bad things to your car and getting nothing in return.
How big do you need a car to be? I’ve moved across the country in a second-gen Mini Cooper and I regularly cram people and dogs and groceries into an E30 coupe, plus my website advocates for the purchase of Miatas above all other vehicles so I’m gonna go with: not much.
There used to be a BMW 2000CS in my home town, on a street I periodically rode my bike past. Silver. Covered in dust. Never moved. I always dreamed of rescuing it one day, but never did.
I’m an expert in garbage mods, having spent much of my high school experience with TRD badges on the trunk of my Toyota Corolla. If you ever need some surefire ways not to get a prom date, that’s a good one to start with.
Shango, a legal distributor of cannabis, is now sponsoring a drift car. Turn on the shower and crack a window, the puns are starting to make this place rank.
Sorry I’m late. I was loaded and wouldn’t get down from the table.
Untrue fact: the Chrysler Sebring is still the #1 best selling car in Ohio.
