    Note: The video should start at 2:55 for the main action. If you want to see what led up to the confrontation (the car passing too close then the two arguing over rules of the road), watch the whole thing, although the guy in the car loves to drop some f-bombs (i.e. "Put your ... / Continue →

    This is a video of a guy blowing vapor clouds in his car and watching the clouds dance to the beat of the song playing. I kind of liked that song. Thankfully, they included the name of it on the Youtube page (Cashmere by Hucci). That was very nice of them. A lot of times yo... / Continue →

    British man John Bitmead spent over 1,000 hours and £4,000 (~$6,500) building a street-legal version of a Little Tikes Cozy Coupe car. Why? I'm not sure, apparently he doesn't share the same dream as you and I. "Which is?" A Flintstones-mobile! Allegedly the gas-powered ca... / Continue →

    This is the 500,000+ piece LEGO car that was built by 20-year-old Romanian Raul Oaida. Obviously it's not 100% LEGO (chassis, axles, wheels), but it is fueled by compressed air powering 256 LEGO pistons and can allegedly reach speeds up to 20MPH. For reference, that's faster ... / Continue →

    This is a short video of Baja 100 racer Adrian 'The Wildman' Cenni performing a 360-degree barrel roll before a race in Ensenada, Mexico. They call it the world's first 360-barrel roll, but at least a handful of other people (including Rob Dyrdek) have done it before. I dunno... / Continue →

    This is the 33-year old Subaru that two friends decided to jazz up with a Jurassic Park paint job, making it infinitely cooler than it was and something I would be proud to ride around shotgun in. I'd never drive it myself though, but only because I lost my license and OBEY TH... / Continue →

    Apparently the Batmobile monster truck has been out crushing cars since the mid 2000's, but I didn't know about it because the last time I went to a monster truck rally I was twelve. Aaaaaand popped an awkward boner watching Carzilla eat a station wagon and have always been af... / Continue →

    Remember when Kia and DC Entertainment got together to customize a car for each member of the Justice League? Well here's the Optima Hybrid Superman one. It, uh, it's really something. I'm just having a hard time believing Superman would drive a Kia. "Of course he would." ... / Continue →

    After a request was posted on Jolopnik via reader Ben asking for help designing his 4-year old nephew's dream BMW, the car manufacturer itself stepped up and came up with this design. I don't know about you, but I would drive the hell out of that (probably off a cliff). The k... / Continue →

    This is Peter Cooper's Warthog replica (photo documentary of the build HERE). But now it can be YOUR Warthog replica, because he's selling it. For how much? No clue, he just says "Reasonable offers considered." Unfortunately, apparently Peter didn't consider "Give it to me ... / Continue →

    Police in Germany pulled over a 35-year old man doing 130 kph (80 mph) in a 100 kph (~62 mph) zone, and discovered he'd built an entire mobile office in the passenger seat of his vehicle. This is that mobile office. I know, I used 'deluxe' in the title pretty liberally. Bu... / Continue →

    This is an astroturf covered car for sale on eBay in Australia. Why cover a car in astroturf? Because that's what you do when you have a 1998 Mitsubishi Magna with 218,000 miles on it. That, or take the plates off and drive it into a river. This is your once in a lifetime c... / Continue →
