    This is Toyota's Ultimate Utility Vehicle. It's a modified Sierra minivan on top of a Tacoma pickup frame. Would you drive it? I would drive it. INTO A RIVER. Just kidding, I would drive it to the grocery store. And all the other soccer dads will acknowledge my dominance ... / Continue →

    These are some renderings of the Spaceballs Eagle 5 LEGO set proposed by LEGO Ideas member NvdK. Why he didn't actually build a real one is beyond me. Will the set ever reach production? I doubt it. If it does though it should come with the necessary pieces to convert the sh... / Continue →

    This is the Tim Burton inspired Batmobile motorcycle trike built by Game Over Cycles in Portland, Oregon. They did a great job. Now Batman needs to get a custom t-shirt with "IF YOU CAN READ THIS, ROBIN FELL OFF' printed on the back. He should probably get a Catwoman version... / Continue →

    This is a game of match the custom Star Wars license plate with the vehicle it belongs to. Can you match them all? I matched zero. H4N S0L0? What the hell kind of clue is that? "It's Han Solo spelled with a 4 and 0's." Well I'll be snookered! Okay so which one does that ... / Continue →

    This is a parody video created by the folks at Rooster Teeth imagining if Microsoft's Bing developed a self-driving car. It was cute enough for a watch. I liked the last minute. The last minute is always the best. Take sex for example. You can't argue with that. Keep goin... / Continue →

    These are closeups of ten (of more than 150) of the jerry-rigged vehicles created for the new Mad Max movie. What's your favorite? I like the muscle car one on treads. I've always dreamed of owning a vehicle with treads. Specifically, a tank. I want a tank. You know what ... / Continue →

    It's not actually towing the other car, it's pushing it. The BMW in front is the car with the trouble, the car behind it just taps it a little bit to keep it up to speed. It's the guy in the trunk's job to hold the tire to cushion the pushin'. Plus smoke that cigarette. Su... / Continue →

    This is the Boneshaker Big Wheel, the brainchild of Ron Schroer. Pedaling powers a bunch of Theo Jansen kinetic motion sculpture inspired walking legs in the rear that push the bike forward. It is probably not the bike you want to be riding if you're trying to get away from t... / Continue →
