The Ferret Scout Car is an armored and turreted war machine designed in the 1940s. More than 4,000 copies in some 60 variants are said to have been made, and few of them are even still in military service. But only one has a Chevy V8, long-travel shocks and a freaking winch cannon. Oh, and a racing champion at the…
It’s amazing what you can accomplish with a supercharged big-block V8 and tremendously unsafe weight distribution.
Ford has decorated a Shelby GT350 as a tribute to legendary U.S. Air Force pilot Bob Hoover and his P-51 stunt plane “Ole Yeller.” It will be auctioned off for charity, which is wonderful. But why’d they have to go and make it look like a tuner car from 2001?
The ravishing Aston Martin Vanquish as rebodied by the Italian dreamweavers at Zagato bowed at the Villa d’Este Concorso d’Eleganza last month as a showpiece. As in “look, don’t touch” forever. But today it’s been confirmed that a few lucky owners will be able to take one home and get their grubby mitts all over it.
If you really need one truck to go prerunning, overlanding, mud bogging and rock crawling... you’re going to have to get creative. Or crazy.
“This car looks sketchy and dangerous,” writes The Smoking Tire introducing Roland’s Datsun 260Z. Or at least, a car that looks mostly like a 260Z.
The original Jeep Cherokee (XJ) was a solid-axle 4x4 with true low range and loads of off-road potential. The current Cherokee (KL) is a smooth, comfortable crossover. That hasn’t stopped owners from trying to jack it up and cram mud tires on it though, and it looks like somebody’s work has finally paid off.
You’ve saved up some money. You’ve made peace with the spouse. Time to start a car project! Now, where do you start? With a bone-stock blank canvas or something pre-wrenched?
Days ago, car-spotting YouTuber Gordon Cheng found himself in a Tokyo parking garage. It turned out to be a cave of wonders, full of the absolute most outrageously modified Lamborghinis I’ve ever seen.
One of the coolest things about the motorcycle industry is the people you meet in it. For most of them, motorcycling isn’t a job, it’s a way of life, and something that they live out even when they clock out. Heath Cofran, who’s a communications pro for gearmaker Alpinestars, is one of the guys, and his Ducati…
Somebody figured out that a Smart Car is just an off-road buggy that hasn’t put its work boots on yet. Look at this little baby go!
The BMW X5 is advertised as off-road capable, but come on—you’d have to do something crazy like hacking all of the bumpers off for steel tubes. Throw a cage in there. Tires like dragonskin and, wait, no, some dude actually did that.
We know you’ve been begging for Ford for a new Bronco, and no one can deny that the 2004 Bronco concept still looks cool today. Well somebody took the matter into their own hands, turning a humble Lada into a surprisingly clean execution of this design.
When inspiration strikes, one must act on it, and that is how this Porsche 356B was born. I had this color lying around already from a previous custom, but forgot I had it. When I went into the garage to hang up a shelf to house my plethora of paint cans, I rediscovered it, and I knew it was the perfect color for a…
Don’t write this car off because it looks like the homebuilt bastard of a hot wheels car and somebody’s discount Fiero body kit. It’s pulling off some pretty impressive moves here, and hey are those road tires?
Unfortunately, the nice folks at MotoCorsa’s Hello Scrambler didn’t make it to the finals to represent the U.S. in the Scrambler Ducati Custom Rumble bike build contest, but here are the bikes that did. All of them are pretty badass, some more than others.
The custom motorcycle scene can often feel not very “custom,” with so many bikes looking like the same versions of one another. But every once in a while, we come across one that is so different or better, it stops us dead in our tracks. Such is the case with this Revival Cycles BMW Landspeeder.
The funny thing about custom motorcycles is how often they end up looking so similar. When MotoCorsa, the top selling Ducati dealership in the nation, was asked to be a part of Ducati’s Custom Rumble contest, they wanted to put the “custom” back in custom. Meet the Hello Kitty-themed Scrambler, and boy is it...…
