“Don’t you die,” Ohio State Highway Patrol Trooper Eric Devers can be heard saying to a trucker after an accident, the truckers eyes rolling back into his head. And then, Devers gets louder. “DON’T YOU DIE ON ME! DON’T YOU DIE ON ME! C’MON!”
No, there is no sarcasm there. This is just a video of a kid turning a wrench on an engine. But every five-year-old in America – nay, the WORLD – should know how to tear down the engine out of a 4.0-liter Jeep. Keep turning that wrench, little Charlie, for you are the future of Planet Earth.
Okay don’t laugh because this is actually horrific. DON’T LAUGH, but a huge crowd in London banded together to push a bus off of a unicyclist, after his legs and dreadlocks became trapped underneath it.
Unites States Marine Corps Staff Sergeant Liam Dwyer is one of the great comeback stories of the Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge. After stepping on an IED in Afghanistan, he lost part of his leg. Now he races for Freedom Autosport, and the man who saved Sgt. Dwyer’s life finally got to watch him race at Laguna…
Meet Rob Parsons. A dirt bike crash broke his back, his tibias, his fibias, his femurs, and sent a rib through his lung. That didn't stop him.
The Rising Tide car wash in Parkland, Florida is pretty much like every other car wash you ever go to. You drive your vehicle there, some nice people put it through a series of machines for you, more nice people finish it up, and off you go. Except 35 of its 43 total employees are on the autism spectrum.
No, not the video game. This is a story about real life grand theft auto, and it's remarkably sweet.
"Where would I be if my accident didn't happen? Who knows? I mean, I could be a guy, maybe with legs but not as happy as I am."
Last Monday, a Lincoln Towncar carrying a woman and her one-year-old granddaughter T-boned an 18-wheeler after attempting to merge. The huge resulting crash, massive explosion, and raging inferno is the trifecta of horror for any driver. Or, at least it would be, if not for one heroic truck driver.
Usually getting pulled over is terrible, for reasons virtually all drivers know. But on extremely rare occasions, it can be a life-saving blessing, as this Kalamazoo, Michigan woman learned. She had just begun to choke on a hot dog (seriously), when the cop that pulled her over gave her the Heimlich maneuver.
"Don't put this on Youtube," the driver's next door neighbor pleads, but to be honest, this sort of pure glee, this sort of pure joy, this sort of pure, unadulterated, transformative happiness can't not be shown throughout the world. It's infectious and intoxicating.
Well, that was unexpected.
A NEW DECREE SHALL HENCEFORTH REIGN OVER THE LAND: when you scrap your car, and you recycle all the metal, and all the plastic, and you drain all the fluids, the tires shall be given to the elephants. Because elephants love old tires more than you ever will.
Take on look at these models and you'll understand why.
He already had a ring from his grandma, so why not get his fiancée-to-be her dream car while he's at it?
We Jalops give Russian drivers a lot of guff for their exploding trucks and their crazy parking and their wild boar chases. But while the biggest country in the world is chock full o' crazy things going on, it's also full of drivers just being good people. And if you don't believe that, then you need to watch this.
What better way to celebrate a marriage than with a BMw E46 M3 spinning donuts around you and your new bride? Trick question, there is no way.
A lot of people get into racing because it's fun, or because they have the money behind them to do it, or simply because their parents did it. Not Rob Parsons. Paralyzed in a horrific accident two years ago, he's building a race car for a reason. He's not trying to repair his body. He's trying to repair the world.
