Why Are All 'Girls Working On Cars' Photos So Freaking Terrible?

There’s more women working with cars now than there’s ever been. Both the Charger Hellcat and the new Cadillac CTS-V are projects helmed by women, for example. But if you try to find pictures of women working on cars, you’re pretty much limited to pictures of what appear to be sexy idiots with grease streaked on them. »6/17/15 2:50pm6/17/15 2:50pm


Human-Sized Turd Thinks US Women Drive Because They Don't Mind Rape

A talking pile of human waste dressed in clothing and calling himself a "Saudi Historian" and going by the name Saleh al-Saadoon actually said on a televised interview that he felt American women drive because being raped is "no big deal to them."

So, in honor of women, I'd like to talk about one woman who's been a hero of mine for many years: Bertha Benz, the first person to take a real road… »3/08/13 3:45pm3/08/13 3:45pm

Thank This Woman If You Like Seeing Out Of Your Windshield

We try to regularly cover remarkable women of motoring, from the eye-patched and dramatic to the decidedly mundane but important, to the terrifyingly bonkers. Today's woman I suppose falls in the mundane and useful category, but there's not a driver alive who hasn't used this woman's brilliant and largely unsung… »11/09/12 12:30pm11/09/12 12:30pm
