You’ve heard “millennials don’t like to get their hands dirty” and “kids aren’t into cars anymore.” But don’t worry—hot rod culture is still alive, but today the greasy tattooed Danny Zuko types build stuff like this 1975 Datsun 280Z with a Nissan Skyline engine swap. And it’s fast, difficult to drive, and just the…
Everybody on the internet seems to think Brooklyn’s all about expensive coffee and Instagram posing. But there’s still serious hot rodding going on out there. Step in to Tim Harney’s Bushwick motorcycle shop with us to see for yourself.
I’m pretty sure the “hardcore off-road Subaru” scene is getting ready to blow up. We’ve already seen how cool the current Outback looks with big tires and tube bumpers, I think the look ports pretty well to the little Crosstrek too.
For the second time this year, we’re seeing a C4 Corvette gutted and perverted into something terrible. I mean, terribly awesome. Are we at the early stages of a Vette rat-rodding trend?
If you made a napkin doodle of what your beater truck would look like as a dune-jumping hero, and then actually built said truck, you might be a redneck. I mean, an industrious and experimental engineer! Check this hilarious heap out and then we can discuss its actual merits.
“This car looks sketchy and dangerous,” writes The Smoking Tire introducing Roland’s Datsun 260Z. Or at least, a car that looks mostly like a 260Z.
Days ago, car-spotting YouTuber Gordon Cheng found himself in a Tokyo parking garage. It turned out to be a cave of wonders, full of the absolute most outrageously modified Lamborghinis I’ve ever seen.
Don’t waste your time ruining your SUV’s on-road dynamics by perverting the air suspension into some kind of lift. Heck why even bother with knobby tires when you can just drive right on to a set of treads?
This offensive nest of metal plates is allegedly the latest Red Bull mobile party machine. They were going for “armored moon vehicle,” how are we feeling about that?
We’ve seen a few renderings and bits to make the 2015 Chevy Colorado a little more exciting, but this “400 horsepower” supercharged desert toy is my favorite modified version of the mid-sized truck so far.
When it comes to used vehicles, I’ve always said “mileage doesn’t matter” as long as the car’s got good service history and a reputable seller. Here’s a chance to test that theory: GM tuner Callaway is selling development cars, including this near-perfect supercharged Corvette for less than the price of its upgrades.
Renown tuner Lingenfelter Performance Engineering and Southern Comfort Automotive birthed their idea for a “GM version of the Ford Raptor” as the Chevy Reaper some months ago. Cool concept, egregiously ugly. Now they’ve rectified that with a stately GMC version.
As somebody who grew up in Europe, I don’t know much about drag racing, and even less about crazy dragster trucks. Yet I just couldn’t stop watching these beasts go fast in a straight line one after another.
Hennessey's HPE650 supercharger kit for GM's 6.2 V8 claims 665 hp @ 5,500 rpm and 658 lb-ft @ 4,200 rpm at the crank. Dyno testing says that translates to 545 horsepower at the wheels, but the real story is the boosted engine's glorious wail.
This heavily-modified Jeep Wrangler takes a few years off the life of its tires trying to power out of a slick rock hole in Moab, Utah. Think it's got the guts to get going or will it end up flailing helplessly on its back like an overturned turtle?
"Quail rigs" are exactly what they sound like; vehicles set up specifically for hunting little birds when "hunting" means riding around on a swivel chair strapped to the front bumper of a truck. But seriously, they're pretty damn cool.
The 2010 Toyota Tacoma Polar Expedition Vehicle that set two Guinness records crossing the Antarctic ice cap is one mean green machine, and it's for sale... at the US RUF Porsche distributor in Southfield, Michigan.
While Mark Stevenson is content to ride the short bus, Matthew the Car Guy shows how it's really done.
