A trio of Florida women captured a wild ride on Facebook Live over the weekend, following an allegedly drunk motorist for nearly 10 minutes before deciding to intervene and using their own car to force her to stop.
People will do weird things for free stuff. People will also do weird things on public streaming platforms. And sometimes they’ll do both, such as voluntarily kissing a car for hours on end, in hopes of winning it, on Facebook Live.
Vax Moto is a cavernous garage in Gowanus, Brooklyn with motorcycles stacked up to the ceiling. Proprietor Justin Walters has set it up to serve the bike community by offering safe parking, and now he’s serving up tacos. This place is an oasis of biker-friendly awesomeness in the pot-hole’d battlefield of New York…
First, I should say that the driver lived. He’s in critical condition, but hopefully he’ll pull through. That said, the guy’s an idiot, and all of this was preventable by just being slightly less of an idiot. How? Maybe by not driving like a fool on a public highway while livestreaming video of said foolishness before…
There’s an awful lot of ways to configure that box of metal that surrounds you and an engine, and there’s an awful lot of names for the various shapes that box takes. Why don’t you join me and my whiteboard in an interactive wondersploration of car body types and what we should call them? It’ll be freaking magical.
New York City might hate cars, but car owners persevere and do indeed keep cool rides out on the street. Let’s go find some!
Let us go and seek out the cool cars parked on the streets of Manhattan’s Alphabet City neighborhood. There are cool cars of many kinds, and I think we can find them on video.
If there’s one place in New York City where creaky, rusty, cool old cars come to congregate, it’s Brooklyn’s hipster capital of Williamsburg, soon to be shut off from the world when their subway gets nuked. Let’s go look at its cars!
Because he just can’t get enough of cars during his normal work week, our man David Tracy is at the Cars and Coffee for the 38th Annual Concours d’Elegance of America in Plymouth, Mich. right now. This C&C happens before one of the biggest vintage car shows in the country, full of more than 300 dream rides. Join him…
I’ve got one more day with this 2016 Volkswagen Beetle Dune convertible, and I thought that before a full review, you nice people might like some time with it live–well, as live as possible with current technology. You can’t really taste it, yet.
Our guy David Tracy is hanging out with a wild, almost alien-looking custom Jeep Wrangler right now, and its owner wants to show him—and all of you—around it. The word on the street is that David’s going to get to take it for a spin, and he’ll be sharing the whole experience live on Facebook.
Today we are on the hunt for one of the rarest streetparked cars in New York City.
Our guy David Tracy is out touring a big Jeep show just outside of Atlanta, and you can tag along with him on Facebook Live if you’d like—complete with all of the Jeeps, and none of the unbearable southern heat that he’s sweating through in order to bring them to you all. If that’s not a good deal, what is?
Everyone says New York City is very un-car-friendly. But that doesn’t stop some cool stuff from showing up. Come take a walk with us as we hunt for cars.
Omix-ADA—the biggest aftermarket Jeep parts supplier— has kindly invited me to its headquarters in Atlanta to check out its operations, and to let me drive Jeeps from its historical collection. We’re doing the second one right now, so come watch!
This might be the coolest Acura NSX in the country. And if it’s the coolest NSX, that means it’s one of the coolest cars Stateside.
It’s a beautiful day in New York City, so let’s go look for cars in one of Manhattan’s trickiest carspotting neighborhoods. We’re hitting up the West Village.
In a way, I see Facebook’s livestreaming capabilities as a long, painful experiment to test the limits of human geekery. I’m putting it to a massive test today, since I’m talking about Volkswagen Type I turn indicators in levels of geekdom and detail so colossal and painful that it could lead to the downfall of us…
Having already checked out some of the more interesting cars of Manhattan, let’s go see what cars we can find in one of Brooklyn’s leafier neighborhoods.
