    This is the world's flashiest Toyota Prius, modified and tuned by the "yes you can too polish a turd" folks at Tokyo-based Kuhl Racing. It kind of reminds me of the iridescent sheen you sometimes see on roast beef. The modifications include "an original front diffuser, side s... / Continue →

    This is the Volkswagen Beetle toy that Redditor Muppaphone spotted in a taxidermied beetle exhibit at the Cleveland Museum Of Natural History. Those museum curators -- such a wild bunch! Seriously, they are though. Because one time I got a behind-the-scenes tour of a museum ... / Continue →

    This is a Smart Car with a photographic wrap to make it look like the driver is riding a motorcycle. I think it's real, but it could be a Photoshop job. At first I thought the front fork of the motorcycle extended past the fender of the car, but I think the bottom of the fend... / Continue →

    This is a video of a guy unloading his custom boat into the water from the back of his custom truck. Together they make one badass looking vehicle. Separately they make one badass looking boat, and one awkward looking truck. Together and banging a helicopter -- now that's th... / Continue →

    Seen here on what appears to be a 4,000-lane highway, a checkpoint on the other side of a tollbooth causes a bottleneck and massive traffic jam outside of Beijing. Honestly, if I had been stuck in this I probably would have spontaneously human combusted. I do not cope well wi... / Continue →

    This is a video of a cool dude in his cool car who decides to challenge the guy next to him to a little street drag race. He loses. It brought me great joy. If I could witness this once a day in real life I think I would be a lot less angry and hateful. I don't though so I ... / Continue →

    Because garages are for people who drive cars they're embarrassed about/minivans, this is the GazeBox, a gazebo to show off your fancy car. They come in a variety of sizes and panel options (including camo in case you want to make finding your car in the morning extra hard on ... / Continue →

    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 →

    Seen here looking like something you'd expect to find on the top of somebody's zombie apocalypse wishlist, an Action Mobil 4x4 RV prepares to escape the city and set up base in the woods. Action Mobil specializes in customizable 4x4 RV's, which come in 2, 3 and 4-axle varietie... / Continue →

    Seen here being modeled with a commando chick appropriately dressed for combat (provided life is a comic book), this is Howe and Howe's Ripsaw EV2 Extreme Luxury Tank. It costs "well into the 100s of thousands depending on desired luxury and performance packages" and looks li... / Continue →

    Heck yeah, no helmet or seat belt! Helmets and seat belts are for sissies who have never dreamed the dream of living a life in bed eating out of a tube. This is a video of Colin Furze (previously: his 50MPH baby carriage, Wolverine claws, Pyro flamethrowers and Magneto boot... / Continue →

    Note: Helmet cam footage from 0:58 - 1:06 may make you dizzy and puke. This is a video of Australian dirtbike rider Josh Sheehan performing the first successful triple backflip on a motorcycle. For reference, that is three backflips more than I feel comfortable doing on a mot... / Continue →

    This is Mrs. T, a 90-year old tortoise whose owner Jude Ryder hooked up with a pair of R/C airplane wheels after her front legs were lost due to a rat attack while she was hibernating last winter. Dammit Master Splinter, seriously? You like turtles but attack hibernating tort... / Continue →

    In an effort to increase efficiency, Ford has just filed a patent for an automatic gearbox with 11 forward gears. For reference, most new cars have eight or nine. Me? I just filed a patent for a car with two hundred gears. "No you didn't." Yes, I did. "No, you drew a pict... / Continue →

    Because Florida, this is a video of a boy getting a baby tooth pulled with the help of a Chevrolet Camaro. I did something similar with one of my son's teeth, except instead of a Camaro it was a monster truck. It was also the wrong tooth. Now I have to save up to get him a f... / Continue →

    This is a commercial for the Skoda Fabia in which they argue the car is so attention stealing that you won't notice the scenery changing. Obviously, the fact you don't notice the scenery changing has nothing to do with the car, and everything to do with the constant cuts in th... / Continue →

    This is the Master Chief motorcycle helmet coming soon from NECA (National Entertainment Collectibles Association). It ships this June for an undisclosed amount of money (I suspect around a shit-ton) and meets or exceeds all Department of Transportation safety standards, which... / Continue →
