Every Garage Deserves Solid Seating.

If you have ever hung out in a garage before, you know that seating is usually limited to old wheels, plastic crates, and cold concrete.  While this concept may seem crazy to some, the reasoning for this is quite valid.  Floor space in garages is extremely valuable, and it should not be wasted with non-tools, parts, or vehicles.

GREAT NEWS THOUGH! There is a solution that is logical, comfortable, and down right decorative!  I found this amazing idea posted by “Outcast99″ on Killbillet.com and was instantly filled with jealousy.  You basically grab an old truck bed from your back yard, a nearby field, a scrap yard, or the woods, and start cutting.  Once the bed is commandeered, you begin the project by cutting the sides and floor out of the bed.  You then weld the front to the back with only a couple inches of space between the front of the bed and the tailgate.  Next up, you add a metal base made from the scrap steel you have under your workbench. Before long, you have sweet folding seating for up to 2 adults or possibly 3 lovely ladies!  When you need the extra space, you simply kick your friends out and fold the tailgate up.  How cool is that? Jealous yet?

22.5 Inch Wheels on a Mid 50’s Chevy Truck

I’m not sure that this picture does justice for the ungodly size of the wheels and tires on this truck.  In person, this truck is massive, and disturbingly awesome.  The tire size was claiming 22.5 inch, and I’d agree.  The rear differential must have weighed about 800 pounds, and the brake drums looked big enough to stop a large locomotive.  I’m not sure who’s idea this was, but they deserve a high 5 and a free sandwich or something for pulling it off.  Just gawk at the rear tire for a while and let me know what you think.

There is a Fine Line Between Toasters and Consoles

When I first spotted this at a car show, it felt so wrong, and yet… oh so right.  I instantly realized that all of these years that I have watched patiently as my toaster added crispy deliciousness to my bread, I had totally overlooked its true calling.  The toaster wasn’t intended to further cook my already-cooked dough.  Oh no!  This baby was dipped in chrome at the toaster factory for a very different and specific purpose.  A toaster’s destiny is to be inside a car!  My life was forever changed.  Toasting bread, bagels, and english muffins would never, nor could ever, be the same again.  Do your thing toaster, it’s what you were always meant to be.

Air Bags: The Only Thing Stopping You From Being The Drift King

Mastering that fine line between drifting and crashing is an art, not a science.  To protect the common man from hitting that fine line too harshly, Chevy has just introduced the “No dorifto” inflatable restraint system into its new Camaros.  It protects the driver and passengers from that dastardly asphalt ocean that they are adrift in.

Air bags: Can’t win with them, can’t win without them.
