    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 →

    Note: Some NSFW language. I cannot tell you how many times I've almost died. I'd say it's in the thousands. I'm starting to wonder if I'm immortal, but none of my friends are brave enough to run me through with a pirate cutlass to find out. Maybe one of them will grow some ... / Continue →

    Ladies first, I insist. This is a commercial for a Mercedes F-CELL vehicle featuring Hollywood couple I'm not familiar with Joshua Jackson (who I researched and discovered is famous for being in Mighty Ducks and on Dawson's Creek) and Diane Kruger (who I did not research but a... / Continue →

    This is stabilized footage taken from the Apollo 16 mission of astronaut John W. Young blasting around on the moon's surface in the lunar rover. It looks like he was trying to do donuts. It really is worth a watch (especially in HD). It's hard to believe humans have actually... / Continue →

    This is Batman's Tumbler inspired golfcart for sale on eBay. I actually posted about it back in 2010 too (I have a memory like an elephant -- penis too), but now it's for sale. Will you and I be going halvsies? NOPE. It's $17,500, which is a little bit out of my price range... / Continue →

    This is the gingerbread AT-AT constructed by the Magnolia Hotel & Spa's restaurant Catalano for the Canadian National Gingerbread Showcase. Looks good. Granted I don't remember seeing any AT-AT's with antlers and red noses in the movies, but knowing George Lucas, they were th... / Continue →

    This is the $15,000 Sportsman WV850 H.O. from Polaris. That's a pretty poor name. I would have called it the Unstoppable Earthf***er or something with STYLE. The all-terrain military inspired vehicle includes unpoppable TerrainArmor™ non-pneumatic tires which can stand up to... / Continue →

    This is a commercial for Honda's CR-V filled with a bunch of optical illusions. Because that's how you get people to trust your company -- by tricking them. Now how am I suppose to know this alleged safety record of yours isn't just an illusion? It's all fun and games until ... / Continue →

    On display at the currently happening State Fair of Texas (where else?), Chevrolet exhibited this Silverado 'Black Ops Concept'. What makes it so apocalypse ready? Hopefully more than just the custom graphics and yellow accents like I suspect. "Luck favors the prepared and t... / Continue →

    This is a video of the Knight Rider KITT replica that Chris Palmer built out of a 1991 Pontiac Trans Am (the original KITT was an '82). It looks pretty impressive. Now I'm usually a pretty traditional dater, but if Chris picked me up in this thing I'd probably make an excepti... / Continue →

    Clearly jealous of all of Batman's sweet rides, Spider Man decided to have a Spider Speedboat built for himself. What's he plan on doing out on the water? No clue, probably drowning. Hey Spider Man, you bojo! Those webs don't work on water -- UNLESS YOU'VE GOT POWER. That... / Continue →

    This is Batman's Tumbler themed farming tractor. Just kidding, it's a specialized tractor built in The Netherlands that just so HAPPENS to look like Batman's Tumbler. OR IS IT?! This is the internet, people, you can believe whatever you want. "It's a rocketship!" Okay it's... / Continue →

    Time Machine Restoration, a group dedicated to bringing Back to the Future's film-used Time Traveling DeLorean "A" car (the primary one used in the movie) to its former glory, has completed their restoration. And, from the looks of the thing, I think it might actually be able ... / Continue →

    This is a chart depicting the distances we've traveled on worlds that aren't earth. SOMEHOW the Soviets still hold the top spot for longest distance traveled with a single vehicle. Granted it was an unmanned vehicle, but still, I'm a little disappointed in NASA. Me: *makin... / Continue →

    Please tell me it comes with that external speaker. Apparently Kia and DC Comics have teamed up to create a line of one-of-a-kind Justice League themed cars, using a different model for each character in the group. This is the Batman car here, built using a Kia Optima SXL. A... / Continue →

    This is a $10,000 collaboration vapor pipe from glassblowers Adam Whobrey and ELBO. It looks like one of the Explorer SUV's from Jurassic Park. Smoke doesn't actually pass through the entire thing though, all the pipe parts are hidden in the bottom. Think of them as the engi... / Continue →

    Sweet rims, bro. In a move we can only pray will inspire the nation's youth to want to become space cadets instead of reality stars, Hot Wheels has announced an upcoming model of NASA's Curiosity rover. And you know what they say about curiosity, don't you? It's what makes y... / Continue →

    Hyundai teamed up with The Walking Dead comic creator Robert Kirkman to create a "Zombie Survival Machine" version of their Elantra Coupe, which will be unveiled at next month's San Diego Comic Con but not available for retail purchase. *eying picture* WELL DARN. The car was... / Continue →

    Oracle ColorSHIFTs are LED headlights that can change any color. PLUS STROBE. Want to give the driver in front of you a seizure? NO PROBLEMO. They're only made for select car types and cost over $400, but who cares, your headlights are shooting rainbows. Mine? Mine are sh... / Continue →

    Seen here looking suspiciously like a pink 'Scream' mask, GW GM now has front center airbags that, in the event of a t-boning, are supposed to prevent you from bashing skulls with whoever's riding shotgun. Which, at least in my case, would be Jesus. Get it? Because he's my ... / Continue →
