Portland newspaper The Oregonian reports that after seeing a car driving slowly around a Taco Bell parking lot with a cat on the hood, someone called the cops. Police questioned the car owner earlier this week, who said he regularly takes his cats to parking lots, lets them get on the hood and drives around at 5 mph.
My state is in a crisis. If any Oregonians had dreams of a better, easier 2018, those dreams were shattered the moment they heard of the new law which allows untrained members of the great unwashed to pump their own gas in rural counties.
January 1st, 2018 was a terrifying day for many residents of Oregon, because on that day a law went into effect that stated that Oregon counties with 40,000 or less people would be allowed to let normal, mouth-breathing citizens pump their own gasoline right into the gas-holes of their cars, like they were rocket…
The lead singer of Modest Mouse, a band you remember listening to about a decade ago, decided to go for a drive in Portland, Oregon, a few days ago. He reportedly says he fell asleep, at which point every single Subaru in the world was destroyed.
This little mutt is an AMC Spirit AMX, a mini-musclecar from the late seventies with flares n’ white-lettered tires n’ a big ol’ hood decal - and a somewhat lamentable 130hp V8. Based on the Gremlin, it’s a sawed-off runt that few remember. Well you’d remember this one: it’s got a 96-inch wheelbase and a built 401ci…
You didn’t realize motorsports could be so gorgeous.
The Oregon State Senate has passed a proposal to make lane-splitting legal in the state. The only problem is the amendment has been diluted so much in the legislative process that it’s eliminate one of the biggest safety advantages to motorcyclists.
A Washington police officer pulled a family to safety just before their car was overturned by a wave on Tuesday evening.
California may be the only state in the country that allows motorcyclists to split lanes, but if bills proposed in Oregon and Washington pass, both states could join their West Coast sibling in helping riders free themselves from the tyranny of traffic.
The suspect was long gone. Nothing but some faint treadmarks on the ground, a whirl of dust in the air. But the old cop knew something was up. His lip curled, his nostrils widened. "That, Jimmy," he told his young deputy, "is not the smell of fear. It's the smell of Axe. Really, terrible Axe. Seriously, it's awful."
A drunk homeless man stole and crashed an impeccably restored Ford Model A in Oregon yesterday. Amazingly, the man survived.
Somehow, I'm not exactly surprised by this one.
A drunk driver hits a sober driver, the sober driver chases the drunk who then crashes into another drunk driver, gets attacked by witnesses, and everyone gets sued for $1.6 million.
Ticketing a driver for a vehicle violation gives them no good incentive to fix the broken taillight, headlight, or whatever. Eugene, Oregon's new citation system is much, much better.
What if I told you there was an eight-cylinder, dual-clutch, four-wheel-drive, four-wheel-steer Ford on Craigslist right now? What if I told you it had dual controls? What if I told you it was made out of two Escorts?
New Yorkers might know the name of Gustav Lindenthal for designing the Hell Gate Bridge on the East River, but this great gentleman from the Czech part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire was also responsible for the Sellwood Bridge in Portland, Oregon. The problem is that 1925 was a long time ago, and the bridge's…
Sad news today out of Oregon after at least nine people were killed and 20 others were injured when a charter bus plunged off an icy road, the AP reports.
Whenever someone crashes through the barrier on the side of an overpass, it's never good news. When Matthew Hamilton, 38, drove his truck off the side of a bridge in Beaverton, OR this weekend, luck — and a really sturdy rear axle — saved him from plummeting onto the road below.
A month ago, Thani Al Mazrouei heard an unpleasant noise coming from his 2008 C6 Z06 Corvette's engine, and took it to the closest Chevrolet dealership to have it checked out. It turned out to be a problem with the crankshaft, so the dealership replaced the engine under the car's warranty.
Just when we thought we had seen all the world of car fires had to offer, a 1987 Volkswagen Vanagon manages to surprise us. The van performed the seemingly impossible this past week when it drove itself uphill into a nearby condo after setting itself ablaze.
