I grew up in the 70’s and 80’s so I’ve always had a thing for vans. Here’s a pretty cool van burnout that I found on YouTube for our Friday video post. It kind of has a “Who’s The Boss” theme going on.
In the post Y2K world, Hyundai’s are rear wheel drive, and can be found shredding their Potenzas with 429 meat filled V8 horsepower. On Friday, anything is possible.

Today was the final launch for a manned space craft by the NASA program (for now). That means that all of your lofty dreams of being a real life astronaut, and repelling off of that weird mysterious face on the moon are now null and void. You will never feel the force of a rocket on your back pushing you to 17,000 mph, and you won’t be taking the moon rover over any sweet jumps. Again, sorry to be the bearer of bad news. Luckily for you, you have something more exciting than intergalactic space travel in your life. I’ll give you a hint. The special thing is in front of you right now. It’s called – a sextuplet of shiny new NASA related pictures! Continue reading The Final Launch – Now You’ll Never Be An Astronaut.

Jay Leno has the car collection that every enthusiast dreams of. He also gets invited to awesome car-related events because well… he’s a famous & ridiculously knowledgeable car-guy. That’s what famous car-guys do. Most recently, he was in Wolfsburg Germany checking out the brand new Volkswagen Beetle that has been buzzing around the internet for a few months now. It seems that the vast majority of VW enthusiasts are excited about the new model because of it’s sleeker, more Porsche-esque look. Jay Leno agrees. What’s that you say? You like old cars? Well you are in luck, because in the video, Jay also drives the worlds oldest Volkswagen Beetle from 1938.
Imagine for just one moment that you owned a Fiero. Life is pretty great right? Okay, now imagine that you also have a totally sweet motorcycle. This imaginary setting couldn’t possibly get any better at this point. Am I right? No! I’m wrong! The FIERO CYCLE has just stepped into your dream sequence and he brought the 3 wheeled party with him! Wrong has never felt so right. You know… I’m Lovin It!
Special Thanks to Jason E. for the picture.
It seems to be common practice in car enthusiast households to have pets named after cars, auto parts or famous figures in automotive history. I personally know of several pets past and present that have had some great names.
- A fish named Tucker
- A cat named Turbo
- Another cat named Turbeau (Keeping it classy)
- A cat named Piston
- A cat named Malibu
- A cat named Monte
It’s odd that they are mostly cats, isn’t it? Hmm. Well, you can rest assured knowing that they aren’t all mine. Did you really think I was secretly a crazy cat lady for a second? That would surely be awkward. So - if you have a pet with automotive related name, share it with us!! Bonus points if you went with an engine size.
