The Concurs d’Lemons is one of the best motoring events out there, I think. It’s hard to think of any particular group of people that need more making fun of than hardcore concours-level automotive obsessives, and the Concours d’Lemons does just that, celebrating, as they say, the “oddball, mundane, and truly awful.” …
Traveling by plane greatly increases our chances of getting sick, or so many of us are wont to believe. To be fair, it’s not uncommon to come down with a nasty illness after we return from a vacation or business trip. But is flying the culprit? The latest research suggests the answer is no—but much of it depends on…
Under an executive order signed this month by Arizona’s governor, Uber could be held criminally liable for a fatal crash involving one of its self-driving cars that struck and killed a pedestrian Sunday.
For years I have been obsessed with the Toyota Cressida, the easily-forgotten straight six sedan that we got in America up until the early ‘90s. Did you think the Cressida really went away? Hell no. It packed it up and stuck to Japan, and now all the cool straight six ’Yotas are trickling back into America, finally…
In 1955, one brave Frenchman’s thirst for adventure took him on an epic 25,000 mile road trip through Africa that would test his wrenching abilities to their fullest. Stranded in a 120 degree barren desert, the options were: wrench or die. He chose to wrench.
A video posted yesterday is getting a good bit of attention online because it shows a late-model Cadillac sporting wheels that have massive protruding spikes looking like they came off the chariot race scene in Ben-Hur. What are these things? Are they legal? It’ll be okay. We’ll explain.
I wasn’t aware that this needed repeating, but I suppose we all require some common sense brushing up from time to time. Here’s today’s Very Obvious Reminder: Don’t, for the love of all that’s holy, ever cut off a bus.
J.Crew Factory’s classic extra discounts are back. Use the code BLOSSOM at checkout and grab an extra 30% off everything, including sale items. There’s a ton to look at, especially if you’re in the mood to throw your winter coats and sweaters into storage ASAP.
The 2018 King Of The Hammers went down in February, on the rocks and open lake beds of Johnson Valley. It could just as easily be Mars, though. And you get a great perspective of what a rock-crawling desert race is like from these drone shots.
Kneading is great, sometimes, like when it has to do with massages, the baking of bread products and cats getting comfortable on your lap. Kneading isn’t great when it comes to a Ferrari 458 Spider and a crane, which crumbled this car up like a paper love letter with too many embarrassing words scratched out.
The “seeking gourmet donuts” crowd and the “needing to get my car washed and detailed next to the highway” crowd don’t overlap much in Manhattan, which I imagine is why so few people I talk to have been to Underwest Donuts.
These weather-resistant remote outlet switches rely on an RF remote instead of Wi-Fi, so you can’t control them with your phone or Alexa. But at just $26 for a two-pack (each of which has two outlets), it might be all you need to control, say, outdoor string lights, fans, or heaters. Just use promo code H69R9FX9 at…
Aston Martin seems to think that, largely, the business, sale and naming of electric cars is a confusing matter. So, it’s going about things a bit differently by possibly just creating a standalone electric brand for itself.
Uber has halted testing of its self-driving cars after a deadly accident involving one of them occurred late Sunday in Tempe, Arizona. An Uber vehicle traveling in autonomous mode struck a woman crossing the street. She died after being taken to the hospital.
Another day, another reminder that our future is straight out of a sci-fi movie. This Volkswagen race car looks beamed in from a not-so-distant future where the rich zoom from place to place in electric supercars with glowing company logos while the rest of us choke on the air quality left by the gas guzzlers of…
I made an idiotic error the other day while trying to get my $800 Jeep Grand Wagoneer ready for its 3,000+ mile off-road trip. And instead of hiding my shame, I’m here to share it with you.
The United States Navy’s newest submarine, the USS Colorado, went into service this weekend. In the Pentagon’s announcement Secretary of the Navy Richard V. Spencer called the vessel “a true marvel of technology and innovation.” But part of the 377-foot-long Virginia-Class submarine is operated with a 12-year-old Xbox…
There are many injustices in this world and one of them is being pulled over for something really stupid. It’s frustrating as all hell and inconvenient, too. Not everyone has time to go and contest the charge, we got other stuff to do.
