    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 →

    Seen here in the process of insulting an old man's choice of koozy, this is BatDad's fourth Vine compilation video. It's fine and all, I'm just starting to wonder when these things are going to end. My guess is never, at least not until the concept has been run into the groun... / Continue →
