Vice President Joe Biden may think he’s running for the highest office in the land, but at a Yale Commencement Day speech he didn’t hesitate to tackle the big issue: Porsche v. Corvette.

America's Favorite Uncle, Vice President Joe Biden may have had one of his favorite cars in his European motorcade—and he probably didn't even know it! The motorcade briefly had a Tesla Model S as part of the caravan. For the press. I bet Uncle Joe is sad he missed it.
Some combinations in this world are holy. Peanut butter and jelly. Peanut butter and bananas. Bananas and mayonnaise. And Vice President Joe Biden and yellow Chevrolet Corvettes. Last night at the White House Correspondents Dinner, Uncle Joe delivered, in a funny little video. Oh, and Julia Louis-Dreyfus was there.
Vice President Joe Biden may not be the Commander-in-Chief, but he's definitely America's Horsepower-Loving-Gearhead-in-Chief. (Is that a thing? It should be if it isn't.) And now you have the chance to own what may be one of his cars.
So Joe Biden walked into the Detroit Auto Show, said some stuff and did some stuff. Then some photos were taken and you captioned them. This should end well.
Vice President Joe Biden took time out of his busy schedule of attending funerals and fundraisers to take a victory lap around the Detroit Auto Show. As always, he was all toothy grins and ridiculous gestures. Help us caption these photos of Joe Biden being Joe Biden.

In perhaps one of the most Bidenesque moments ever, the Corvette-loving real Vice President of the United States Joe Biden called out the fake Trans-Am-loving version of himself from The Onion, who at this moment is giving a real fake iAMA on Reddit. If you're from 1990 and are browsing Jalopnik through a wormhole on…
Secessionists and Ron Paul supporters haven't been the only petitioners busy on the White House's "We The People" webpage this week. Someone filed a petition yesterday to establish a fleet of Vice Presidential Trans-Ams, to be customized and used to kick off the official beginning of summer.
If you read The Onion as your only source of news, you'd be under the impression that Vice President Joe Biden is a Coors Light-drinking, Trans Am-driving, Dave and Buster's-banned, womanizing former Senator from the great state of Delaware.
Biden laughed his way through the VP debate last night, but he wasn't cracking up at the Republican agenda or stoned off his gourd. It was this picture of Ryan in a tiny car.
Vice President Joe Biden didn't really get fresh with a black leather-clad biker chick while he was trolling for votes at an Ohio campaign event this weekend; he just sat kind of close to her.
A few things you didn't know about Vice President Joe Biden and cars: His dad had GM and Chrysler dealerships (while he, as a U.S. citizen, owns parts of GM and Chrysler). He once borrowed a Chrysler 300D for his prom, and the Secret Service won't let him drive his 1967 Corvette.
