Ever had a car that makes you think irrationally? One that grabs at your heartstrings and makes you say and do very strange things? That car, for me, is the Jeep J10. My weak spot for the J10 has existed for many years now, so finally I bought one. But it’s pretty rough.
You know that funny feeling you get when a big rig truck tips over in front of you and comes sliding, on its side, headlong at your car, only to just barely stop after tapping your front bumper? That’s sort of the feeling you’ll get watching this Polish dashcam video.
Driving is the most dangerous thing most people do. It’s also something for which they likely have no or minimal training. Before you hit the road for Memorial Day weekend, let’s look at how to make it more survivable.
Recently, there's been a lot of hype and attention given to the practice by some diesel truck owners/operators known as "Rolling Coal." Essentially, too much fuel is dumped into the engine, creating huge, billowing black clouds seemingly designed to make Prius drivers whine online. I have a solution.
Need to haul a 1,300lbs bull moose off the Alaskan tundra? You're going to need an Argo. The world's only eight-wheel-drive, amphibious ATV can literally go anywhere.
What is this? A flying drone? Eight flying drones? One flying helicopter? A moving room? A truck? It's a little bit of everything. Called the AT Black Knight Transformer, it combines the vertical takeoff and landing of a helicopter with the off-road driving capabilities of a truck. So yes, that means it can fly and…
Yes, you read that right... No, this isn't the F150 ecoboost pickup. No I'm not smoking a bong full of salvia. Come read about this seldom heard concept truck of the 90's after the break!
Monsieur Bernhard Nabucet has been running his own trucking company just outside Paris for nearly fifty years now. He has also been a massive fan of Volvos since day one, so it's no wonder that next to the shiny new fleet, he also has a special one in the garage.
If you woke up from a bender in Ford's press event this morning, you'd have seen a large scaffold full of buff men in construction outfits spraying showers of welding sparks and pounding large hammers into girders with rippling muscles glistening with sweat. And, based on this and the loud, blaring industrial music,…
I know that's a bold statement to make in that headline there, but I mean it. I should clarify though— "interesting" does not mean "best" in any sense of the word. It's not the fastest, most advanced, most comfortable, or really any superlative (other than maybe "cheapest"). But some of the cars that are currently…
Car brochures today have all sort of covergently-evolved into a certain bland sort of slickness. Sure, there's some minor typographic differences and photography, but one's pretty much like the other. But this wasn't always the case. Back in the day, if you weren't selling something fast or sleek, you had to find…
Calling a tow truck or flat bed isn't all that hard. For a nominal fee, they'll come to where you live and transport your car to your desired location. Easy peasy.
Whenever I go back to Texas I feel the need to get a car that seems impressively Texan. Last time it was a Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 which, with its mix of German and American might, found a place deep in this Texas heart.
"Datsun is going to pick you up". Thanks to the upbeat singers it sounded like a good thing, but no one in this commercial seems too pleased about being "picked up" against their will. Thanks to the magic of advertising that all changed once they were placed in the bed of one Datsun's compact pickup trucks.
Most of us are so brainwashed by the powerful truck-usage lobbies that we can't even consider any other options to moving things. Got a huge utility pole to move? Then you need a truck, right? But consider this: maybe you don't. This bunch of clever utility workers in Wenzhou, Zhejiang province of China sure as hell…
A young driver was trapped when his Vauxhall Astra collided with a semi on a busy English highway this morning. The small car became pinned beneath the truck's loaded trailer, but its driver was able to get out of the car without assistance from rescue workers.
If you're going to carry children as passengers in your car, the best plan is to have them all in seats, wearing seatbelts. Not only did this Romanian motorist have four kids riding in the open trunk of a tiny sedan, he almost got hit by a semi as he was making a left turn.
This truck carrying 1,000 gallons of sulfuric acid crashed in Bartow, Florida, spilling its cargo over State Road 60. The driver was burned, people and animals have been evacuated, and a hazardous materials team in on the scene. But my question is: if sulfuric acid drops on a road, would the road melt?
Witness this man happily perched on the back of a truck travelling at around 49mph (80km/h). It seems so easy! Ah Brazil, sometimes you surprise me so much that I think you are Russia. Or worse, Florida.
