I Really Don’t Know How To Feel About Talented Tesla Cybertruck Fans Making Spec Website Designs For Tesla

I’ll be the first to admit that I’m a bit conflicted here. Part of me is delighted to see people so excited about a particular car, and to see people using that excitement as a creative springboard. No matter what I think of a given car, I’m not going to shit on someone’s enjoyment of […]

I Helped Out With A New Car-Focused TV Show That Won’t Be As Terrible As Most Of Them Are

I know we’ve discussed how the state of most car shows you see on mainstream television are generally somewhere between a pizza made from urine-soaked carpet samples and an unexpected, forceful kick in the groin when it comes to quality and enjoyability. We’ve lamented this before, and once even tried our hand at it,…Read more… […]

Let’s Finally Get To The Bottom Of This: Does Stuart Little Drive A Toy Car Or A Miniature Actual Car?

As you can expect, there’s lots of strange bullshit trending on Twitter at the moment: World War Six, for example, the Corona virus, all kinds of miserable bullshit. There’s also another Tweet that’s generating an awful lot of likes—maybe not quite the scale of the global disaster ones, but still—and it brings up a…Read more… […]

That Awful Email About An Employee’s Old Car May Not Be Real But I Still Cannot Abide

I should preface this all by saying that I’ve yet to be able to absolutely confirm that this absurd email is real, though the original poster insists that it is. Fundamentally, it’s just a boring email from an HR department to an employee, but the content of the email is deeply insulting, reflecting the worst […]

Old Land Rover Freaks Have One Of The Weirdest Names For A Car Part I’ve Ever Heard

Every hardcore automotive subculture defines themselves, at least in part, with their own idiosyncratic jargon. Cars and parts of cars have nicknames and slang terms, knowledge of which helps define who’s in the group, and who’s out. I know in the air-cooled VW community you can hear weird terms like “Pope’s Nose” and…Read more… Continue […]

This $600 Dodge Ramcharger Decorated With 14 Bald Eagles May Be The Most ‘Murica Truck Ever

After reading about my recent $700 “Holy Grail” Jeep, a Virginia accountant named Charles sent me an email titled “My one in a million purchase.” Attached were photos of one of the most soulful automobiles I’ve ever seen: a 1991 Dodge Ramcharger with a spectacular Rocky Mountain-themed art scheme featuring 14 (!!!)…Read more… Continue Reading […]

Hero Saves 20,000-Mile 1992 Honda Accord Coupe From The Crusher, Scores ‘Barn Find’ For $800

After writing about a perfect 1990 Toyota 4Runner with only 12,700 miles getting snagged by a Texas car salesman for a modest $4,000, I received an email from a reader showing off another amazing find: a 1992 Honda Accord Coupe with only 20,628 miles on the odometer. The car, I’m told, was actually destined for […]

Washington State Supreme Court Affirms Drivers Must Use Turn Signals Every Time They Turn

When you make a turn, merge, or change lanes, you are supposed to use your turn signal. You indicator. Your blinker. Whatever you call it, everyone knows that you’re supposed to use it. But apparently that kind of common sense knowledge has been forgotten, leaving the Supreme Court in Washington state to cast a deep,…Read […]

What It Was Liking Traveling On An Airplane With 120 Pounds Of Car Parts And Tools

Earlier this month, I devised an absolutely idiotic plan to pick up from the middle of nowhere a rare, manual transmission 1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee that I’d bought sight unseen for $700. It’s a vehicle that I refer to as the “Holy Grail of Jeep Grand Cherokees,” except its condition was far from holy. With […]

Facebook Works For Once

While the internet may just be one of the biggest mistakes humanity ever made, it has its occasional benefits—sort of like how two people in a Facebook truck group managed to swap hoods so that their Silverados finally matched. This might just be one of the best star-crossed stories I’ve ever heard.Read more… Continue Reading […]

The Honda Prelude Was A Flop In Japan Because Of Something Called The ‘Pervert Lever’

Here in America, the Honda Prelude is remembered as a fun, sporty little car, a reminder of a time when everything Honda made was clever and reliable, and the Prelude was their way of having some fun without sacrificing Honda quality. People in America have fond memories of the Prelude, which is why finding out […]
