The engine in your car is much like you: quite fussy about what fluids go where. Just like you’d freak out if, say, your tear ducts became full of urine or blood, you average engine doesn’t want, say, washer fluid where oil should go. Which just happens to be what happened to this poor, now-disgusting Mini.
A couple of comedians left this Nissan Leaf on a Los Angeles street during the weekly two-hour period reserved for street sweeping. And then they narrated a 40 minute live stake-out waiting to see how long it’d take to get a parking ticket, which an astounding 13,000 people sat tuned in for.
Roads that sap energy from passing cars don’t work in the real world. At the very least, they’re expensive as hell to build and maintain. None of that stopped Volvo from trolling other cars driving on one with an XC90, however.
Enthusiasts of one particular car make are really only certain of three things: their chosen brand is the best, the people who prefer some other brand are drooling sub-morons, and there’s no way in hell they’d ever drive a Saturn. Every brand has its share of the aforementioned drooling morons, but is there any way to…
It was a few researchers from West Virginia who brought down the might of the German automotive industry, exposing VW’s Dieselgate cheats. Do you think Germany is pleased about that?
If you had a jet engine strapped to a truck, the first thing you should want to do should be obvious – that’s right, you’d strap a Tickle Me Elmo to a post and shoot it with screaming hot fire.
XKCD is one of those things you can always count on to be out there, doing the hard research we all demand. And this time it’s especially useful, since XKCD seems to have used math and statistics and other black, black magic to determine what car names would be most successful. And boy, are they good.
This Reddit user's speedo broke, and the way he got around the problem is hilariously clever.
This year the dash cam reached maturity, going from capturing weedy little videos of Russian car crashes to recording global news events. And these are the very craziest dash cam vids of 2013 from the whole world over.
Hey everyone, that's it. The Internet is over. Archer remade the video for Danger Zone from Top Gun. Yeah, let's all sign off now, there's no way to top it.
Getting put under for having your wisdom teeth out does some funky things to you. Enter Annie, who believes she's a NASCAR driver with "tattoos on her hands" who "just won the World Series of being the fastest NASCAR driver."
If there is a way to race something, people will race it. Enter the Power Racing Series, which is basically souped up Power Wheels built on a budget of $500. It is one of the most ridiculous, crazy, innovative, fun, and dangerous racing experiences I've ever seen, and you need to do it now.
Russia tends to be a land of innovation when it comes to its vehicles, especially if you consider "innovation" to be a foot-powered Lada. "Innovation" is definitely a word that came to my head when I saw this video of what appeared to be a UFO driving down a Russian motorway. The other word was "WHAT!"
Volvo's new trucks are so easy to drive, a hamster could do it! No, really. Volvo Trucks built a makeshift hamster wheel onto the tiller of one of its rigs, and using nothing but the orange-y allure of a carrot, a hamster steered a 15-ton truck all the way up a quarry, with sheer cliffs off each side. Holy crap.
Even if you tailgate people on the road, I'm willing to bet that you hate people who tailgate you. Following too closely is pretty much the worst. I've always wanted a way to get them off my tail, and now I think we have the solution: Water. Lots of water.
