Imagine the Quidditch game from the world of Harry Potter, but with normal people throwing trash out of their cars.
In a city like London, where architecture from many centuries past sits among modern skyscrapers, a show like the London City Concours that unites great cars old and new seems perfectly at home. I visited the event this summer on a break from Japan. It was the first event of its kind, and as inaugural shows go, this…
In between chasing Paganis through the Tuscan countryside and inhaling tire smoke at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, I spent a couple of weeks in London. It’s a city seeping with history and culture—and some very good cars, if you know where to look.
Nothing says ‘sweet summer innocence’ like getting a cool treat from a stranger driving a van. However, such snacks might be harmful to kids, and we’re not talking about just the refined sugar here. Reporters from The Daily Mail in England took a bunch of emissions readings from ice cream trucks in England, and found…
Randy is being sent to jolly old England for a few years and he gets to take a car with him. It needs to be practical and reliable, preferably a good representation of the U.S. of A, but not too big. What car should he buy?
It’s anarchy in the streets of Warwickshire, UK as police on are the hunt for two dangerous dog-walking radicals committing the heinous crime of removing traffic cones from the street.
I just returned from a vacation in southwest England, where the motorways taught me a cruel lesson. Those harsh streets made me realize that I am a weak man with a fragile heart, a flappable soul and a frail spirit. I may never recover.
In India, southeast Asia and Far Cry 4, the three-wheeled rickshaw taxis known as “Tuk Tuks” are considered as perfectly normal means of conveyance. As far as I’m concerned, it looks like a damn deathtrap. And a lot of fun.

When you finally become a licensed driver and have a few years under your belt, the driving experience becomes automated. But what happens when you go to a foreign country where they drive on the wrong side of the road? That’s this week, on Worst Car Stories.
Land Rover Defenders don’t usually go fast. But when they do, they look hilarious, unstoppable, and way too much fun.
Don the tweed and pomade. The Goodwood Revival is a living exhibit of Britain’s motoring past, but is this a positive for mechanical culture going forward, or an anchor keeping us navel gazing into the past?
This 1944 Willys Jeep in classic US military livery was stolen from the Imperial War Museum in Duxford, England where it was parked out front for a show. It belonged to a 73-year-old man who got his hands on it and restored after his father had actually driven it in World War II.
Security camera footage from the Trackspeed Racing classic car shop shows a pair of thieves using a Land Rover as a battering ram, then hooking it up to a beautiful 1972 Ford Escort MK1, and yanking it right off the showroom floor. This is some straight-up Hollywood style insanity.
England's Bath Bus Company began shuttling customers from the city of Bath to Bristol Airport 19 miles away on Thursday, using a 40-seat bus that is powered by human waste and food scraps. The bus is the first of its kind in the U.K. and can run up to 300 kilometers (186 miles) on a tank.
