Ultra-premium outdoorsy clothier Filson sells a beautiful version of the AEV Brute Jeep Wrangler pickup for $130,000. Now they've added a regular-Wrangler to their lineup.

Tom Meade's wild Ferrari Thomassima was the P4/5 of its day

If you are ever in Modena, Italy, you may see a big blond kid tearing down the street on a Lambretta scooter with a big, mean-looking German shepherd on board.

GM Knows The 2015 Chevy Colorado Looks Cooler Without That Chin Spoiler

Here's the second "modified" 2015 Chevy Colorado as presented by GM. It's just like the first one; establishing that a roll bar, bikes, stickers, and removing the front spoiler rounds out Chevy's "how to quickly and cheaply make a Colorado look cool" list. If the spoiler must stay, can we at least get a quick-release? » 11/03/14 1:41pm 11/03/14 1:41pm

This Ultimate Zero-Fs-Given Off-Road RV Is Cheaper Than A Good Golf Cart

What started life as a 2WD delivery van had been reborn as an unbelievably bad ass off-road camper, which has since had the bejesus beaten out of it and needs a new maniac to bring it to life once again. Do it. DOOO IT. Because holy crap is this thing righteous. » 10/01/14 3:57pm 10/01/14 3:57pm

The First Modified 2015 Chevy Colorado Has Your Whole Weekend In The Bed

The stock 2015 Chevrolet Colorado did alright in the dirt, but the aftermarket's going to make it a whole lot more fun.

The Coolest Custom Honda Goldwings From The Big Bike's 40 Year Run

2015 is the 40th anniversary of the Honda Gold Wing; a comfortable touring motorcycle that's become one of the best-known brands in biking. Stock 'Wings tend to be ridden by mustaches-and-hawaiian-shirts. But when it comes to customization, few bikes are built in so many distinctly different ways.

Is This A Real Prototype Jeep Pickup, Or Just A Home-Made One-Off?

A reader spotted this single-cab Jeep Wrangler JK pickup truck with manufacturer plates in the Detroit area this morning. It's probably a product of the aftermarket, but maybe, just maybe, a Chrysler employee is field testing the very thing many of us have been dreaming of for ages: a modern, factory, Wrangler pickup. » 8/22/14 6:28pm 8/22/14 6:28pm

We've Finally Found A Porsche With Purist Performance And Real Utility

There's so much right about the Porsche 928 GTS. A big old front-mounted V8, bulbously-sleek styling of a greasy pig that's aged well while remaining quintessentially 90's. The only way to improve it would be to turn it into a pickup truck, of course. Which some dude in Denmark has done for us. » 7/24/14 2:18pm 7/24/14 2:18pm
