Don't tell Toyota something can't be done... don't challenge the biggest car maker in the world. They will not put up with your nonsense.

Elon Musk of Tesla said fuel cells were Bullshit. Toyota took that as a dare. And proved him wrong

I believe this explains why a car smoking the tires seems to always fishtail passenger side first

what happens to a cup of Coke when you set it down on the bleachers and 2 Top Fuel Dragster go down the track.

Maserati stolen from the Maserati dealership... whatsa matta with these knuckleheads? Keys were on the counter, thief grabbed them and drove off

Police said a man walked into Maserati of San Diego on Girard Avenue around 2:15 p.m., took the keys from a counter, got into the white 2015 Ghibli Maserati and drove away.

A Malibu lost control, and like a scene from a movie, crashed through a dealership lot and took out a ZL1 Camaro and a Jaguar

his car struck a parked vehicle facing North Frontage north of Price Road , flipped over a second car and landed upside down on the grassy shoulder Tuesday afternoon.

Another five vehicles on the luxury car lot of Barrett Auto Gallery were damaged, including a 2014 Jaguar that was caved in on the driver’s side so much that its front wheel was bent in.

 Tire tracks showed the car hopped the curb on Barnard rd in Brownsville Texas, before slamming into the Jaguar, knocking it a quarter-turn sideways and 30 feet back. Debris was scattered across the parking lot, with one side mirror coming to rest at the auto group’s handicap ramp.

 The vehicle then hit a Chevrolet Camaro, flipping it over onto the shoulder where it remained until a tow truck arrived to haul it off.

The Grateful Dead and hot rodding.... whats the connection?

His work with the Dead continued through many classic albums, including Workingman's Dead and American Beauty.

10,081 mile very original 1969 Z/28 sees sunlight for the 1st time in 20 years, a one owner, unmolested, unrestored car that could be among the last of the one owner 69 Camaros

You have to keep looking at Hot Rod Magazine's Facebook page, ot Muscle Car Review's front pages, because that is where they print the incredible cars that Jerry Heasley comes across.

This Camaro was found by Michael Lightbourne, who discovered Orbitron was being used as a dumpster about 10 years ago. He has restored a lot of cars, and hunted down a lot more. Jerry once wrote that he and Michael have been finding rare cars for 2 decades
