    These are a couple shots and a video of Batman cruising a highway in Japan on his custom trike. What's he doing in Japan? No clue. Maybe he cleaned up all the crime in Gotham already. Or maybe Gotham is such a shithole he just gave up and decided fighting crime in Japan wou... / Continue →

    This is some (presumably Russian) dashcam footage of exactly what the title says: a speeding motorcyclist crashing into the back of a car and managing to land on his feet on the roof of the vehicle. Now I know I called him a ninja in the title, but in reality ninjas don't cras... / Continue →

    This is the raptor bicycle (technically a tricycle) built by Norwegian artist Markus Moestue. I would ride that. I would ride that ALL NIGHT LONG. Not in the street though, it doesn't have a bike light. Could you imagine getting rear-ended by that thing? HEAVEN. I got the... / Continue →

    This is the Motoped Survival Bike Black Ops Edition. It's the perfect vehicle for getting around during the zombie apocalypse. I mean, provided you can't score a tank. Or a hot air balloon. Or a boat. If you're in the woods hunting zombies though, it's perfect. If you're ... / Continue →

    Get down from there, bike -- you're not a plane! WARNING: A VERY solid "OH F*** OFF!" from the cyclist right before he gets hit. This is a video of a London cyclist who gets hit by a car, catches air, then slides down the hood of the car and lands on his feet. If I were t... / Continue →

    This is a video of Italian police officers performing a synchronized motorcycle routine in Rome in the 1950's. They do a great job. Way better than the guy who was trying to split lanes when I was waiting at a stop light the other day. It's cool bro, I didn't even like that ... / Continue →

    Meet HitchBOT. HitchBOT is going to attempt to hitchhike the 3,871-miles (~6,230km) across Canada from Halifax, Nova Scotia to Victoria, British Columbia. I have every intention of finding him, running him over, stopping and backing over him, running over him AGAIN, then call... / Continue →

    This is a video from the 2013 Texas Heat Wave custom car show of two lowriders doing battle. They're not REAL cars though -- they're just shells of cars that have had their engines and other heavy parts removed so they can achieve MAXIMUM BOUNCE. Just check out the red, white... / Continue →

    Note: Dude drops a solid f-bomb at 0:20. I recommend yelling it with him like the world's shittiest sing-a-long. This is a brief video of a 2006 Chevy Equinox that can create and blow snow out of the A/C vents. Yaaaay, let's go skiing! "You mean like, slang for doing coke... / Continue →

    This is the suitcase scooter invented by Chinese farmer He Liang. It can not only carry your clothes, BUT CARRY YOUR ASS TO THE AIRPORT (provided you leave the night before and are cool cruising on the side of the highway in the dark at 12MPH). No word if it stands any chanc... / Continue →

    This is a video shot above Meskel Square in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. It's a massive free-for-all traffic intersection. From what I gathered, you just drive until you almost hit somebody, wait for them to move, then speed off again. The pedestrians though -- they're the real wa... / Continue →

    This is a picture and video of Highway N329 in Holland. 500-meters of the highway's exterior lines have been painted with glow-in-dark paint, a corroboration between artist Daan Roosegaarde and Dutch civil engineers. Heck yeah, now paint me some glow-in-the-dark lanes to the ... / Continue →

    At the recent New York International Auto Show, Land Rover displayed this concept for an invisible hood that allows you to view the ground beneath your engine. That way you can actually see what you're running over WHILE YOU'RE RUNNING OVER IT. The future, ladies and gentleme... / Continue →

    This is the 1974 Chevy Malibu that Star Wars fan Bill Deacon turned into a replica of the Millennium Falcon. "It's uncanny." Right? For a second there I thought I was just looking at a screencap from one of the movies. But it's not, there's actually an old car under there.... / Continue →

    Mazda has recalled all 2010-2012 Mazda 6's with 4-cylinder engines because spiders can crawl into the fuel tank, spin webs that can cause a pressure build up, which can lead to cracks in the tank and fires. And nobody but a stuntman wants to drive a car that's on fire. As b... / Continue →

    This is a video of John Hickey's Pontiac Gran Am. Specifically, one of the air vents that goes nuts when you put the A/C on full blast. It's pretty mesmerizing. The sort of thing you could really get lost watching before realizing you're driving on the sidewalk. That said, ... / Continue →

    This is 'If They Could Transform', a series of digital paintings by artist Darren Rawlings imagining famous pop culture vehicles as Transformers. Which one is your favorite? I liked them all equally. Except for the Ninja Turtle's Party Wagon, ECTO-1, KITT from Knight Rider, ... / Continue →
