    This is a mashup between Back To The Future's time-traveling DeLorean and Knight Rider's K.I.T.T.. Unfortunately, that's really all the information I have besides I am going to find it and steal it and then it will be mine and I will rule the streets of the past, present and f... / Continue →

    This is a timelapse of LEGO maniac Peter "Cavegod" Brookdale building a custom designed 6,000 piece LEGO AT-AT Walker over the span of 26 hours. For reference, the largest official AT-AT set sold by LEGO is only 1,137 pieces. I think it's amazing how people can design and bui... / Continue →

    This is a video created using the illustrations of artist Scott Park, featuring all the vehicles from the original Star Wars trilogy in order from smallest to largest. He even included animal mounts. Would you ride a tauntaun? What about a bantha? I want to ride a Rancor. ... / Continue →

    This is the Mad Max inspired go-kart paintball battle created by Devinsupertramp and his pals to promote the new Mad Max video game coming out September 1st. That looks like it was fun to make. I want to do the same thing, except instead of paintball guns we all have ninja sw... / 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 →

    This is a video of some good ol' boys taking an old minivan down the Cable Hill Climb (which is usually run from bottom to top in offroad buggies) at the Gray Rock Offroad Park in Gardendale, Alabama (where else?). It looks like FUN. I lived in Alabama for eleven years and I ... / Continue →

    This is the $40 fallen AT-AT lawn ornament being sold by ThinkGeek. It would look perfect covered with a light dusting of snow, invisible after a heavy snowstorm, and entirely out of place in the summer. You might want to keep that in mind when you're making your purchasing d... / Continue →

    This is one of six (and one of only three remaining) modified Lotus Esprit submarine cars used in the filming of the 1977 James Bond Film 'The Spy Who Loved Me'. It's being sold on eBay for $1,000,000. Unfortunately, it's not Wet Nellie, the one they used that was an ACTUAL f... / 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 →

    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 →
