Somewhere in Slovakia a storm drain was... chirping. Authorities showed up to investigate, found a female mallard pacing around it, put two-and-two together, and commenced operation Pull Some Dumb Ducks Out Of The Drain. Don’t worry, it works out and this video will cheer you up.
Who’s a cute lil’ instrument of war? You are!
It turns out that cats like refreshed and refurbished old Porsche 911s as much as humans do.
If you live in the rural areas of Victoria, Australia, be warned: at least one koala bear has been spotted attempting to steal a car. While the plot was foiled by 15-year old Sam Box, authorities state that the koala is freaking adorable and is considered extremely huggable. You've been warned.
Astronaut Leland D. Melvin worked for NASA for 25 years, heading the Vehicle Health Monitoring team for the X-33 space shuttle successor, leading NASA's office for education and outreach program in the 2010s, and logging over 565 hours in space. Also, he likes dogs.
Admittedly, all my animals are stuffed, but I've been around enough other peoples' shops to know the value of a good shop dog (or cat, or bunny, or whatever floats your goat). Shops can't be all hard work and misery. Sometimes you need some calm time scratching Fido behind the ears or a good squee.
Dear automaker naming departments – here are ten animals that are in desperate need for cars named in their honor.
You know that low growl that formula cars make on start-up? Here's a dog who can replicate that noise, complete with two revving growls afterwards.
Ever been stuck behind an old Benz 240D? If so you probably understand the frustration, staring at that one blackened taillight, watching the oil-burner lumber slowly along. It all gets more tolerable if you picture this little guy lying on a pillow under the hood.
I must warn you: these little leaping Fiat 126s are so adorable they might cause you physical harm.
Even kitties liked today's Italian GP.
I know the last thing these kids want to be is cute. They're a racing team, dammit, and they're here to kick ass on the racetrack and eat Pop Rocks. And nobody's seen Pop Rocks in years. I respect that. Even so, I can't help but look at that team photo and feel my squee gland secrete awwwrotonin.
You know what happens when you take your dog for a ride in your Porsche Cayman S? You get lots of flapping in the wind, and oh so much cute.
D'awww, puppies! They're so cute when they roll around and wag their little tails and drive your car into a pond.
And now, it's time for your daily dose of vehicle-related D'AWWWW! Officers with the California Highway Patrol are being praised for rescuing a tiny chihuahua off Interstate 680 on Friday. An adorable tiny chihuahua to boot!
And the little guy loves it.
The Nash Metropolitan is an odd car. It was sold as an ideal second car due to its size at a time when every other manufacturer subscribed to the "bigger is better" philosophy of car design. But was it the practical choice it claimed to be?
This is young, young, young Kevin Magnussen in his very first test of a "Formula 1 car." Without a doubt, this is the cutest thing to have ever happened ever.
