On Amelia Island, Florida, there is a small neighborhood where the sunny streets all ring of some distant past. It’s a nostalgic echo that brings us back to the dreamy days of First Car ownership.
We’ve all heard of Florida Man. He’s America’s worst superhero. Whether he’s getting caught with James Bond gadgets, crashing his truck into a house, beating people up with golf clubs, running over everyone during a street fight, claiming to be Satan, or whatever else even Stan Lee couldn’t dream up, Florida Man is…
Okay, quick quiz: you stop at a stoplight when a screaming weirdo punches you through your car window, then threatens you and your family with a gun. What do you do? If you’re Zach Waring, you just drive over the guy’s car in your lifted F-150. There. Problem solved.
UberEats says it’s able to deliver you “the food you want” at “Uber speed.” On Sunday, Florida police say a driver for the ride-hailing service added drive-by shooting to that equation: he reportedly shot up a pizza place in Tampa with a BB gun after getting into an argument with the restaurant’s owner.
It’s nice to win a prize. Scratch-off lotto tickets, a free milkshake, free tickets to a show. Prizes are good. On Wednesday, Linsey Owens, 83, thought he had won a prize from a local Nissan dealer. He did not. When a Nissan employee explained why, police say, Owens beat him with a golf club.
The violence in WWE wrestling may be fake, but even in retirement pro wrestlers are not the people you want to threaten with an airsoft gun in a Florida gas station.
A Cuban immigrant who owns a Miami-area car dealership is celebrating the death of longtime dictator Fidel Castro with what he considers the ultimate expression of American capitalism: a big sale on a brand new Chevrolet.
It was just your typical 3 a.m. street fight outside of a bar in Tampa until Florida Man went and ran everybody over.
The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world he drove a Camry. I always figured the Prince of Darkness would be an ‘80s Jaguar type of guy, but I guess not. Apparently, he likes Toyotas.
Oh, normal Florida residents. We’re sorry that your state has such a strange reputation. But when you’ve got people like this Orlando man, who fell out of a truck on the way home from the strip club, ran over his own leg and then ran off after the truck crashed into a house, there’s not much we can do to help you.
One man in Florida was surprised when a six-foot snake emerged from his Hyundai’s hood during rush hour on U.S. Highway 19, reports WTSP. Surprisingly, that car is not on fire at the bottom of a ravine (like it should be), although consider this my request to nuke it from orbit just to be sure.
This is a 7-year-old boy driving a car on public roads, according to reports. But wait! There’s more! This is also a 7-year-old boy driving with one hand, and he appears to not have a seatbelt on. Parents, don’t let your underage children drive on public roads. And please, please don’t film it to post on social media.
Sometimes, when babies want to come into this world they don’t wait until you get to the hospital. In a perfect example of that, a Florida couple ended up delivering their newborn in the lot of a used truck dealership in Jacksonville.
Vacuums are utterly wonderful, brush-filled devices full of enough staticky dust, fuzz and debris to make your hair stand on end. Naturally, you do not want to suck a flammable substance such as gasoline into that potentially spark-filled environment. One woman at a Florida gas station learned that lesson the hard…
Local news in Florida caught a driver in a truck attempting to pull off some sweet powerslides and donuts right in front of them, the American people, and the manifested wrath of god that is Hurricane Matthew.
I love crazy engine swaps, even if they turn a car from daily-drive-able to totally useless. Here’s a Porsche Cayman—a car normally fitted with a mid-mounted, low-slung flat-six— but with a big 5.0-liter Coyote V8 swapped in. It may sound like blasphemy, but just watch how much power this thing makes on the dyno.
You know that feeling you get when you’ve set your ex’s car on fire, only later to learn that the car wasn’t your ex’s? Yeah, neither do I. But a 19 year-old Floridian caught on surveillance video might know that feeling all too well, WFTS Tampa Bay reports.
On Saturday, Sheriff’s Deputies in Osceola County, Florida (of course) saw a helicopter buzz over route U.S. 192 low enough to nearly hit some street lamps. The cops didn’t take kindly to this, figured out where the helicopter was registered, went there and waited for it to land.
