Remember that time Terry Gross from NPR’s Fresh Air got banned from drag racing?
Some things may have changed since Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby was released a decade ago, but it still has one of the most dead-on mockeries of the popular perception of motorsports in America. NASCAR—for better or for worse—has a sometimes-uncomfortable association with the Southern bro.
If you looked–really looked—at the 2016 Toyota Camry, you wouldn’t expect the leggy girls in short dresses who get into the clubs for free to climb out of it. It’s humbler than that. Maybe if the leggy girl got hitched and then moved out to the suburbs, maybe. And that’s why I like it so much.
The hottest of hot takes on Motor Trend’s Apple Car stunt come to us from Autoblopnik, always a shining example of scoop-getting in the automotive world!
Over the past day or so, a picture that’s allegedly of Bernie Sanders driving a roughly $160,000 Audi R8 has been circulating online, along with the allegations that he purchased the car with donor money. Is any of this even remotely true?
Somehow, nobody ever seems to talk about the amazing Teslas that our parents were excited about. Why is that? They had some amazing cars, and you can clearly see the design lineage of their current cars in their past offerings. With the Tesla Model 3 about to debut, I was especially excited to find this press pic of a…
Man, I haven’t seen a copy of Painful Car Geek and Insufferable Pedant in years. It was just dumb luck that I found this one, crammed in a gap between the water heater and that huge box of oily rags I keep in my basement. I even remember this issue, from 2007.

Like most of you, I’m not sure Christmas is still a holiday that even gets celebrated in America! I tend to get most of my information from disposable coffee cups, and those seem to suggest an outright hostility to the holiday, what with all their color and all. And now I find that General Motors has no plans for a…
The Audi Allroad - specifically the 2004 Audi Allroad - was the only car in the world that carried the name “Audi Allroad” in 2004. No other car came close.
If I could sum up the Car Bros YouTube channel in one word, that word would be heroism. They’re always highlighting some of the unsung heroes of the car world, like that Ferrari owner driving his dream car thanks to his rich Hollywood dad. Today they introduce another: legendary car flipper Jack Diamond.
Who needs The Stig when you can get The Ginger Stig?
"Success comes to those who work for it." That's what the latest Car Bros. video says about Damien Stonebrook, and it's spot-on accurate. He grew up around exotic cars thanks to his rich Cinemax director dad, and after crashing the M3 convertible he got for his 16th birthday, he knew he had to go the Ferrari route.
The Nissan Silvia S15 is currently banned for road use in the United States. Good.
