The last Holden car is expected to roll out of General Motors’ assembly plant in Elizabeth, South Australia, on Oct. 20, during a ceremony for employees. But an image that surfaced ahead of that appears to show the car in the process of being built. The car will be the last commercial car ever built in Australia.
There’s at least one animal from Australia that won’t poison you or bite you in half and it is as durable as it is cuddly. This koala, a lactating mother, rode in this car’s wheel well for 10 miles. It must have been very stressful.
Here’s a Subaru Forester that looks like it lost one ox, 420 pounds of food and three sets of clothing fording the swollen Moore River in Western Australia. The river was nearly 4 feet deep and carried the early Forester away, but this off-roader managed to save it anyway. Definitely don’t try this at home.
Everyone is a critic when it come to other people’s driving, but sometimes, on very rare occasions, someone stopping their car in front of you, exiting their vehicle, and walking towards you isn’t the beginning of a shouting match and fight. Sometimes, like in the case of this young driver in Australia, it’s the…
The craziest jump in rally is a big statement. You have the famous jumps in Finland. El Brinco in Mexico. WRC Sweden has an award named ‘Colin’s Crest’ for the longest jump on SS16. These are massive jumps, but they aren’t the largest or the craziest.
Australia is taking the electric car revolution one step further by announcing a $3 million super-long electric highway, or a series of fast charging electric vehicle stations.
“That was probably a mistake,” the driver later admitted to local news.
You know how a small dog reacts upon getting let off of its leash near a body of water? How the dog will do that excited little run-hop thing before leaping just slightly in the air and landing on its belly? Well, a Toyota Supra did that recently—except it landed in a ditch instead of a body of water. That’s not as…
When you think “air force missions,” I imagine a lot of images pop into your head: jet fighters, missiles screaming through the air, Val Kilmer and Tom Cruise playing shirtless volleyball, and that stock footage of an aircraft being refueled in flight I bet are all in the mix. One thing that probably doesn’t come up…
Robby Gordon is one of the most talented drivers actively racing today. He’s made a mark in NASCAR, IndyCar, Baja, and lately, his own Stadium Super Trucks series. Whatever he’s driving, Gordon is known for his aggressive style and showmanship. Which an Australian judge, apparently, had no sense of humor about at all.
For reasons beyond my explanation, I am somewhat obsessed with the Pilbara, the big chunk of desert in Western Australia where much of the country’s mining goes on. Here is a slice of life from this chunk of money desert.
Hell has officially frozen over. The evil forces of the world have taken over. The universe has made its anti-fun stance known, culminating in the $3,000 fine lobbied against Australian Supercars driver Chaz Mostert for doing a sick burnout that would make every hoon in Australia shed a single tear of glee.
Do you remember being 12? I sure do. I seem to recall having a pretty good time at 12, and while there were things I was good at, I can’t say I would have trusted myself to drive a car for 8 feet when I was 12. Just picture your 12-year-0ld self in your head while you take in this information: Police in a remote…
The South Australia Police, in an article published to its website titled “Tank goodness he’s off the roads!”, have apprehended a 28-year-old man after he was pulled over while dragging a massive rainwater collection tank on a broken trailer attached to an unregistered car.
An Australian motorcyclist found himself both attacked and saved by a mattress flying off the back of a truck last night. As it appears to be moving season, it’s a good video reminder to tie down your mattress right.
Well, this almost got extremely real.
Be on the lookout for massive out-of-control truck trailers full of tons and tons of mass to come barreling at you randomly, folks.
Every time I think to myself, “Nah, I probably don’t need to buy a dashcam,” I see a video like this and then I start browsing Amazon all over again.
“What time’s high tide, mate? Maybe we can sail it out of here!”
