1957 International Metro Motor Home Could Make Anyone Into Hunter S. Thompson

After bright red Cadillac El Dorados and desert racers, we can imagine no other vehicle more capable of evoking gonzo journalistic activities than this International Motorhome. Sure it's a little rusty now, and this particular model would require the addition of a very powerful engine and multiple drug cabinets, but… » 6/03/08 4:40pm 6/03/08 4:40pm

Project Car Hell: You Could Live In It Edition

With yesterday's Choose Your Eternity poll, most of the commenters seemed to prefer the Pinto, yet 55% of voters went with the Vega. What does that mean?

Motorhome, Now With a One (Small) Car Garage

Tell grandpa his days of pulling his Merc SLK behind the Bluebird are over. The Volkner Mobil mobile home comes with a particularly oddball convenience: an on-board parking space.
