We don't really understand the sport of truck pulling, but we might be more interested in learning more about it if the pulling trucks regularly put on fireworks displays of mechanical carnage like the one seen here.
Today at 9am, a NYC salt-spreading truck crashed through the wall of a Queens Sanitation Department repair shop. It might've been kinda neat if the truck weren't on a top floor—with a driver inside, screaming his lungs out.
What do you do when you realize your dirt bike racing son has forgotten his lucky scarf? Hop in your 1972 Ford truck and hit the racetrack to chase little Alfie down with no regard for his fellow racers, of course. This is exactly what the mother featured in this vintage Ford advertisement decided to do, resulting…
You have surely heard someone say they don't build ‘em like they used to? Today's Nice Price or Crack Pipe Jeep Pickup is a perfect example of how they used to build ‘em, but will its modern-day price give you the willies?
When a group of 14 Ford Raptor owners took to the desert for an off-road run in the spirit of what has become the quintessential hot-rod pickup, ten came back with bent frames. Is the Raptor too weak to play in the desert?
Kevin Kewley grew up hearing stories of his parent's "infamous parasail" they'd use in an uncommon sport called off-road parasailing. Lured by tales of high-flying adventure he decided to try it himself. The results are amazing if not a little terrifying.
A Tornado-damaged street in Joplin, Missouri. A president offering support and a handshake to a man waving an American flag. This couldn't be a better commercial for Chevy if they'd planned it themselves. Chevy runs deep? Our Country, our truck? They ain't got nothing on this Amerigasm. (Photo via @Jesseclee44/by …
The first sign something was wrong was when William Lynch noticed a dumpster flying across the road. He quickly pulled over to the side of the road and tried to cope with the debris pelting him through a broken window. Unknowingly, he'd driven right into the Joplin Tornado.
I wanted to use a superlative in describing this man jumping out of a tumbling Toyota FJ truck, but I couldn't decide if this was the luckiest or most skillful exit ever. Either way, it's definitely boss and completely dangerous.
Later this year, a team sponsored by Thomson Reuters will attempt to break the speed record for reaching the South Pole by land. Here's the first unofficial pictures of the custom truck they'll use in their quest.
The young man in this photo said he stole the truck to escape from Brega, currently besieged by Libyan loyalist forces, and return to the rebel side of the conflict where the truck will likely be put to good use. It's a frightened face of a massive human tragedy framed in a truck's window.
The guys at MBRP Performance Exhaust of Ontario, Canada know their way around some high-gloss, high-strength fabrication work. Their current project? An extended, diesel-powered four-door Jeep pickup.
Car lovers are losing junkyards like the ones shown to time, increased environmental regulation and the rising cost of scrap metal. As the amount of old untouched junkyards dwindle catching a glimpse of the ones that remain, like this collection of old trucks in Canada, becomes that much cooler.
What has animated pitchmen, a guy in a monkey suit, a damsel in distress and a truck with seats that are "soft like she-ape"? While we can't imagine what else might fit this criteria, this 1969 Dodge truck advertisement certainly does.
It is not, apparently, illegal to drive while naked in Nebraska as long as "no one is alarmed." Sadly, 32-year-old Nickolus Borgman figured out a way to alarm many, many people in the Lincoln area with his nude-driving antics.
What has four wheel drive, four doors, a sky high body lift and Virgil Exner styling? With the exception of this 1956 Plymouth wagon currently listed on Ebay we're pretty confident the answer is absolutely nothing.
In this vintage footage we see the M34a2 nicknamed the "Eager Beaver" in testing on an "underwater service cruise". Something tells us hitchhiking "mermaids" haven't made an appearance in an Army equipment test since.
The driver and a passenger in this 18-wheeler somehow survived a 100-foot drop off an icy bridge when the truck lost control in Southern Wisconsin this morning. Another amazing photo of the crash below. Update: One person did die.
It's tough finding new ways to impress people with your stupidity, so this guy gets an "A" for originality... as well as dozens of needles in his skin... after jumping from a moving truck into a cactus.
