Watch a humongous hungry machine crush and swallow engine blocks

Here’s the Hammel Red Giant Car Shredder tasting a few engine block appetizers before the beast machine moves on to swallowing whole cars. It’s fun seeing the direct view of the evil Transformer-sized machine at work, the teeth just roll together and grind away at any and every thing that gets thrown in. » 7/09/15 12:29am 7/09/15 12:29am

The Worst Gas Engines at Producing Power Ever (updated)

I was watching the Top Gear special on "The Worst Car in The World" from 2012, when I heard something a bit shocking: a 7 liter V-8 producing barely 200 horses. James and Jeremy are comparing two land yachts from the seventies, a Buick LeSabre and a Lincoln Continental. James' Buick has a 5.7 liter V-8 good for 160… » 9/14/14 4:35pm 9/14/14 4:35pm
