My Prediction For 2015 Weird Car Style Trend: Tweels

Wheels and tires – the sizes, the way they look, the way they fit – have always been key to car-style subcultures. Just look at Donks, stance, jacked-up monster trucks, etc. That's why I think this coming year will finally see the biggest stylistic wheel-and-tire leap of all: the subculturization of the tweel. » 1/02/15 2:00pm 1/02/15 2:00pm

Plymouth Volare Rolls On 24s, End Times Upon Us?

Those tiny 14" wheels that Chrysler put on the Volare? Pizza cutters! Shopping-cart wheels!

We're also wincing for those craptacular Pinto axles and poor differential struggling to make heads or… » 8/23/07 8:39pm 8/23/07 8:39pm

Donk, er Bubble of the Day: Hawaiian Punch Cutlass

We went into this post with every intention of deriding this Olds Cutlass highriser. But we've made a turnabout in the past few minutes, owing to our fondness for Hawaiian Punch and A-body Cutlesses. Sure, this thing has rims the diameter of wagon wheels, sure it has an interior only Spiderman could love, sure it has… » 8/07/07 2:45pm 8/07/07 2:45pm
