For $7,500, Is This The Axis Of Awesome?

From the Porsche-designed Kübelsitzwagen to the Baja Bug, the inception of which is generally attributed to Gary Emory of Parts Obsolete, VW has had a storied off-road carrier. Today's Nice Price or Crack Pipe '73 Bug resting on a Geo Tracker platform adds to that legacy, but is its price not just off road but off the… » 7/31/12 8:00am 7/31/12 8:00am

The MiataJeep: When A CJ Meets A Miata

Say, for the sake of argument, that you have a Jeep CJ. Say you also have a Miata. Say you huff aircraft-grade paint stripper after work. This is what you, Mr. Hypothetical CrazyFace, would create. Aren't you special? [Craigslist] » 6/11/10 2:30pm 6/11/10 2:30pm

We can't tell if this is the result of rampant fanboyism, or the beginnings of a painfully long viral marketing campaign, but something teaserish has surfaced for the new movie "re-imagination" Death Race. We ain't saying'… » 1/02/08 1:30pm 1/02/08 1:30pm

Mini Bruce: It's a Smorsche!

Do not adjust your Photoshop pixel-molestation detectors. This is real — a Fiat 500 modded to take on a certain Porscheocity. Its the product of a Greek guy with an eye for absurdist motoring and the skills to match. I think we just threw up in our mouths quite a lot. » 4/17/07 8:29am 4/17/07 8:29am

Autorama Cleanout: Dissension in the Ranks, n2a Vettalair is Cool

Nooooooooo! Mustang Cobra Mashup

Looking at this automotive expression of crypto-taxidermy, we're reminded of a nightmare we once had after eating in a Moroccan restaurant. The difference is, in the nightmare the creature had the head of a badger and the body of Ernest Borgnine (or was that vice versa?). Actually, this is ten times as scary.

Chevy-Chevy-Chevy: The 789 by N2A Motors

Lots of madness tucked into SEMA's nooks and crannies. To wit: the 789. Built on the bones of a C6 Corvette, the 789 is a style mashup of the 1957 Chevy, 1959 Chevy and 1958 Impala created by California design firm N2A (no two alike) Motors. (See, kids.
