PostHeaderIcon Man Comes Up With Worst Excuse Ever After Crashing Mustang

I feel sorry for all of you responsible Mustang owners out there; I really do. Some of you actually know how to drive a rear-wheel-drive Ford, but the very car you love has been forever tainted by the absurd number of idiots that keep crashing the damn things. Year after year, Mustangs die at the hands of drivers with no skill and even less intelligence, usually after a Cars & Coffee meet, but this most recent crash really takes the cake. Not because of when or where it happened, but because of the excuse the 24-year-old driver of the black Mustang you see above came up with. What was that excuse? Well, he supposedly swerved to avoid a squirrel, resulting in a pretty dramatic crash that tore up not only the Mustang but the minivan that he hit as well.

The accident happened on April 15, just before noon in West Shore, Pennsylvania near the 1,000 block of West Foxcroft Drive and Wormleysburg Borough. According to the small report released by the West Shore Regional Police Department, witnesses claimed the driver was traveling at high speed prior to the crash, which is easily noticeable given the damage to both vehicles involved. Apparently, nobody was hurt, and the van that was struck was unoccupied at the time of the crash. The driver was cited for “Driving Vehicle at Safe Speed” which is likely a typo in the report, and was likely written up as “Driving at an Unsafe Speed.” For now, the offending squirrel remains at large and is likely hunting his next victim at this very moment.

Update: Exclusive interview with Cranky the Squirrel shines some light on last weekend’s big Mustang accident. Keep reading to hear his side of the story.

PostHeaderIcon Easter Special – Special Editions That Are Breeding Like Rabbits

Well, well, it’s springtime folks! The grey of winter is giving way to the colors of blooming flowers as the natural world wakes up from its cold weather slumber. The animals are out and about as well, doing what animals do to propagate the species. And since this time of year is usually associated with rabbits, we thought we’d take a look at some of the most prolific special editions out there.

Now, on principle, we don’t really have anything against special editions. Properly executed, they can provide a nice alternative to the normal model line, offering some very satisfactory upgrades as standard equipment. However, for the most part, we’ve found special editions to be, well, a bit excessive at times.

Here are five of the most fruitful (perhaps overly so) special editions of the car world.

Continue reading for our list of special editions that are breeding like rabbits.


PostHeaderIcon Lexus' Lane Valet is the Autonomous Tech We Really Need

So now that April 1st has come and gone, and the world has managed to separate fact from fiction, I want to talk about one April Fool’s joke that shouldn’t be a joke at all: Lexus’ Lane Valet. Obviously, it was a complete joke that was set into motion a bit early, but how many times have you found yourself raging behind the wheel because some inconsiderate, self-righteous, pole smoker in a BMW, Mercedes, or even a Lexus is cruising down the left lane at five mph below the speed limit? Or, how about mom and pop lost on a Sunday drive? Personally, it happens to me all of the time, and it pisses me off. After all, I’m important and have important stuff to do.

Of course, we don’t have anything like Lane Valet, so my method of combatting the situation is to wait for a clearing, zip around the prick who thinks he owns the left lane, and flip the bird out the moonroof on my way through as I proceed on my mission to break the speed limit and get to my destination 1.3 minutes sooner than I would if I had abided by the law. But, that isn’t the point. The point is, get the hell out of the way. I’m sure a lot of you important folks feel the same way.

So, with that said, I say that this technology needs to become a real thing in the near future. It will be perfect for that period of time that falls between the mass introduction of connected cars and when we’re outlawed from driving ourselves anyway. Hell, I would have used the technology three times this morning on my way to the office, so why not? Anyway, check out the video and let me know what you think.


PostHeaderIcon Blast from the Past: Honda – Cog

When CGI became a thing, the special effects in movies and commercials were practically limitless. 15 years ago, Honda put together one of the best commercials ever for the 2003 Honda Accord Wagon. The commercial was first broadcast in Britain and was an instant hit because of how intricately put together it really was. And, the best part, it used very little CGI.

As the video kicks off, you’ll see a few gears rolling down a length of wood. Ultimately triggering a chain reaction that’s made up of various Honda Accord parts, including the exhaust system, a crankshaft, a hood, a set of wheels, and there is even a radiator fan and rain-sensing wipers in the mix. Ultimately, this domino effect leads to a 2003 Honda Accord rolling down a platform. We don’t know why, but it’s satisfying to watch – maybe it’s because putting together something like this took a lot of time.

But, before you click play, I want to point out a couple of things. First, the only place CGI was used was around the one-minute mark when a muffler rolls across the floor. And, this was only done because the ad agency at the time, Wieden & Kennedy, couldn’t find a studio large enough to do the entire two-minute ad in one shot, so the same space was used twice. Otherwise, everything that happens can be attributed to physics. Of course, you’re probably going to call me out on the wheels that roll uphill – just to be clear; there were counterweights stashed inside the wheels that forced them to roll uphill when displaced. With that said, go ahead and click play to enjoy two very satisfying minutes from Honda. Isn’t it nice when things just work?


PostHeaderIcon Saint Patrick's Day 2017 Video Special: Lucky Racing Saves

They say it’s better to be lucky than good, and sometimes, that maxim extends to the world of fast cars. Because no matter how much you prep for an event, no matter how ready you think you are, auto racing is a chaotic, tumultuous thing, chock-full of surprises and unexpected occurrences. Whether it’s an erratic competitor, mechanical failure, or just plain bad timing, things can go wrong, and in that moment, you better hope luck is on your side.

As it happens, luck is definitely on display in each of these four videos, with prominent examples coming from the worlds of rally racing, drag racing, and formula car racing. And don’t worry – each of these videos has a happy ending!

PostHeaderIcon Covered In Snow? Pornhub Will Plow You For Free

In case you haven’t heard, there’s a huge blizzard rolling into the Northeast U.S. right now, with up to 18 inches of the white stuff forecasted to drop across several states. Schools are expected to close, and transportation options will be limited, at best. It’s a tricky thing to deal with, especially in mid-March, but thankfully, there’s one organization that’s willing to rise to the task. According to Boston magazine, the adult entertainment website Pornhub will deploy an armada of trucks to help folks in need of a plow.

“The Pornhub team understands that by this time of year, most cities have run up their budget in snow removal,” Pornhub’s VP Corey Price told Boston, “and we thought we’d lend a hand in getting our fans plowed.”

Pornhub will service small businesses in New Jersey and Boston via specially branded trucks bearing the Pornhub logo. Unfortunately, Pornhub’s assistance won’t be extended to private residences and driveways. Service requests can be emailed to phubplows@gmail.com, and Pornhub’s representatives are asking folks to tweet using the hashtag #PornhubPlows to get the word out.

PostHeaderIcon Worried About Self-Driving Cars Going Rogue? Looks Like Russia Has Had That Problem for Years

Naturally, the concept of fully autonomous has shed at least some light on the concern that cars could, in theory, go rogue and do things they aren’t intended to do. It doesn’t help that there have been many complaints of cars like the Tesla Model S, for example, choosing to accelerate on its own and smash into things. More recently, there was a Chevy Bolt owner that claimed his car magically turned on and smashed itself into a wall. Most of the reports of Tesla vehicles have been disproven and chalked off to owners trying to pass off blame for their own stupidity, but there is still a real fear there for some.

But, it doesn’t necessarily take self-driving technology for cars to go rogue. In the video you’re about to watch, which is mostly video from Russian dash cams, proves exactly that. Of course, most of them are the result of the owner not setting the parking brake, but there are a few that are quite questionable and look like the cars actually had a mind of their own. And, there’s a really weird clip at 6:08 that involves some creepy girl, a car, and a poor parking lot attendant that probably needed a fresh pair of boxers. You can try to make sense of that one when you see it, though.

With that said, go ahead and click play to enjoy 10 minutes of cars moving on their own.


PostHeaderIcon Tesla Driver Learns The Hard Way About The Importance Of Key Fobs

A Tesla Model S owner got stranded in Red Rock Canyon near Las Vegas after intentionally leaving his car’s key fob at home, all because he wanted to try out Tesla’s new control app. Turns out, the smartphone feature that allows drivers to remotely monitor and control their Teslas without their keys only works as far as the smartphone has a signal. Ryan Negri found that out the hard way when he and his wife went for a drive without the key fob to test out the feature. Chalk this one up to an experiment gone bad.

As Negri himself told the tale in an Instagram post, he and his wife, Amy, tested the new feature by going on a quick drive to “take some photos of the freshly fallen mountain snow.” The whole experiment was running smoothly until Negri had to adjust “Mozy & Millie’s car bed” (most likely their dogs). Negri then went out of the car to do just that, but just as he was about to get back in, he found himself locked out of the car, unable to not only get back in, but just as important, to restart the car.

Apparently, Tesla’s keyless smartphone feature has one pretty important requirement for it to function properly: cellular signal. Since they were in the middle of the dessert, six miles away from home as Negri recounted, cell phone signal was about as scarce in the area he was in as a golden goose laying golden eggs. Fortunately, Negri’s wife Amy (the heroine of the story) took it upon herself to run two miles to get cellphone signal before calling a friend to hitch a ride back home to get the Tesla’s key fob.

Not surprisingly, Negri directed some of his ire towards Tesla for not having contingency plans in place to prevent incidents like the one he and his wife found themselves in. More importantly, though, he also promised to have the key fob with him every time he drives the Model S, as he should have in the first place.

PostHeaderIcon The Coolest Thing You'll See This Month: Bulldozer Battle

In general, when two companies are in direct competition, things might get a little unethical, but it’s not often you see it turn into an all-out mechanical deathmatch in the streets. But, that apparently isn’t always the case as two construction firms in China did just that with six bulldozers while witnesses on the street watch in amazement. How the situation escalated to this point seems to be a matter of opinion, but Shanghai Expat is reporting that the brawl took place as a result of the two construction firms competing for clients. Their source of this information is given as “one unnamed source,” but in all reality, who really cares about the reason? This is just downright awesome to watch.

The video is rather short, but these guys aren’t playing around as they smash into each other. One even gets knocked over in the tussle. His boy rolled onto the scene and tried to tip him back onto his wheels but failed miserably and probably did more bad than good. The battle took place in Hebei, an area located in Xingtang county. So far little is known about what led to this battle, and we’re not sure how it officially came to a stop, but authorities are apparently investigating.

With that said, go ahead and click play and enjoy the coolest battle we’ve seen so far this year.


PostHeaderIcon The Barnacle Will Change the Parking Enforcement Game

Everyone knows that one guy that has a handful of unpaid parking tickets (and probably a suspended license too) and, if you live in a big city, you’ve undoubtedly see someone’s car with one of those big, ugly yellow wheel boots attached to it. The wheel boot may be retiring altogether soon, as the Barnacle promises to be an easier and more efficient alternative to those barbaric wheel locking systems.

In the fairly funny video you’re about to see, Barnacle Parking’s spokesman explains how the new system works, why it’s better, and why you don’t want to play around if you find one on your windshield. It’s pretty simple really, a couple of industrial sized suction cups hold the monstrous plastic device to your windshield. But, it can easily be removed by simply paying your parking fine and inputting a simple code. Of course, it then becomes your responsibility to return it. And, if you think it would be a great idea to throw it of the San Francisco bridge at high speed, don’t – it’s not only logged as being left on your vehicle, but it also has a GPS tracker. To put it simply, a move like that means you’re going to have more to worry about than a parking fine.

The best part about the Barnacle, however isn’t its function, but the funny video that accompanies it prior to its official release. Go ahead and click play and check it out for yourself.


PostHeaderIcon Grand Theft Auto Short Film Gets A Little Too Real In Virtual Reality: Video

I know what you’re all thinking. “There’s a Grand Theft Auto movie?” Well, yes and no. There is a Grand Theft Auto movie that’s based on the phenomenally popular video game franchise; it’s just not from any of Hollywood’s big time studios. It’s actually not even from any Hollywood studio, but rather from YouTube page Corridor, which is known for producing entertaining video game live-action shorts like the one you’re about to see.

This short film is, in a nutshell, a live-action film based on Grand Theft Auto V and it stars none other than Steven Ogg himself, the same actor who portrayed Trevor Philips, one of the three main protagonists of GTA V. Jarring as it is to see Ogg bring Trevor Philips to life, it’s nothing compared to watching him hurl out one curse word after another as if his ability to breathe is tied into the amount of curses he can spew in rapid succession. (Yep, this film is definitely NSFW.)

The film itself isn’t all about GTA V; it’s also about the potential of what virtual reality can do to our video game experiences in the future. I don’t know if it’s ever going to come to a point where we can literally act out video games with our lives, but this film does a nice job in showcasing the possibilities, one dead body at a time.

The whole thing lasts a little over seven minutes and if you’re a fan of Grand Theft Auto V, it counts for must-see viewing. Just make sure that you have your headphones on, otherwise, things might get uncomfortable.

And oh, by the way, Iron Man makes an appearance. Yep. Virtual reality, ladies and gentlemen!


PostHeaderIcon This is How Traffic Jams are Solved: Video

For a while, CGP Grey’s “Simple Solution to Traffic” video had me hooked because I could relate to all the pervasive issues that end up causing traffic. Then it ended up with a conclusion that was surprising and predictable at the same time.

But before I dive into what the video says is the solution to traffic, let me just say that CGP Grey made a great explanation on what causes traffic and how one incident can cause a ripple effect that eventually leads to gridlocks and slow-moving highway traffic. Apparently, human behavior is as much at fault as anything else. And as exciting as the thought of us all programming our minds to move at the same time to ease up on road congestion, evolution paints a far different picture.

This, of course, leads us to the CGP Grey’s solution to traffic: autonomous driving car, specifically on the level that they can communicate with one another.

I admit that the theory was exciting for a bit, but then I realized given where the auto industry is right now in the development of autonomous driving technology, having cars that communicate with one another to create a seamless flow of car movement in roads and highways isn’t going to happen for a long time. So yeah, the solution is there and it has some merit, provided of course that the technology to make it happen can catch up.


PostHeaderIcon Texas Dealership Lures Buyers Thanks To Pokemon Go

Who knew that a car dealership’s life-sized wooden horse would play an integral part in closing some deals? In any other time, such a scenario would be met with snickers and giggles, but since we now live in a world that’s slowly being run over by Pokemons, the impossible has become, well, possible. Such was the case for one car dealership in Texas, which was able to attract buyers simply because it was smart enough to turn its mascot – the Tundra Horse – into a Pokestop.

The genius ploy was hatched by Street Toyota salesman and Pokemon Go player Nick Schuman, who crossed paths with fellow players on one random Sunday afternoon during the dealership’s first Pokemon Go event. Like a true salesperson, Schumann chatted up the players, presumably to compare the Pokemons that they’ve caught near the Pokestop. Schuman was able to build a quick rapport with some of the players and some of them returned days later to buy three used vehicles from the dealership.

According to Automotive News, Schuman was instrumental in closing the deal for a 2012 Chrysler Town & Country, a 2010 Ford Escape, and a 2011 Ford Escape. The Town & Country, in particular, was sold to a family with four children while one of the Escape models to a pair of friends who returned the very next day to trade in their vehicle.

All told, the dealership only spent a total of $45. Of that, $20 bought “lures” it purchased in the game and $25 went to promote the event on social media. The idea turned into a great sales run, and is something other dealerships will likely be replicating Now showroom sales staff can catch a few Pikachus, Squirtles, Charmanders, and customers.

PostHeaderIcon BBC Giving Jeremy Clarkson and His New Show "The Grand Tour" a Hard Time

Let’s look at the reality of things for a minute. Top Gear hasn’t been the same since Clarkson’s altercation with that producer and his subsequent firing. While the show has tried to make a comeback, it’s been plagued with one problem after another. Ratings are horrible in comparison to the old show, it just doesn’t have the same flare that it used to have, and let’s not forget about Chris Evans acting like a whiny diva. Clarkson’s new show, The Grand Tour, is pretty good, but it’s apparently subject to a lot of legal scrutiny from BBC.

In an interview with The Telegraph, Top Gears old executive producer, Andy Wilman – now a producer for The Grand Tour – broke silence around some of the ridiculous legal threats BBC has been issuing against Clarkson, Hammond, and May. Naturally, BBC doesn’t want its intellectual property used in The Grand Tour, but this is a little ridiculous. For instance, BBC says that the show can’t have “handwritten lap times,” a news segment can’t be called “The News,” and the guys aren’t even allowed to call Namibia beautiful because it was said during an episode of Top Gear. The worst complaint from BBC really takes the cake, however, as apparently, James May can’t say the word “cock” because, well, he said it during an episode of Top Gear.

If BBC is complaining about these kinds of things, you can only imagine how long the list really is with complaints that haven’t be announced to the public. At the end of the day, Top Gear is pretty much falling apart now that the trio has taken off and started their new show with Amazon, and it’s likely that Top Gear will never get the same kind of following that it had. Despite the fact that Clarkson was in the wrong when he got into that physical altercation, he was the bread winner of the entire show, and the show is suffering because of this. BBC is clearly butthurt that the guys are doing their own thing now and is trying to do everything it can to make their life harder.

PostHeaderIcon A Roll Cage Held Together by Duct Tape isn't a Good Idea: Video

Duct tape has been around for decades and is commonly referred to as the instant go to for fixing, well, just about anything. In reality, we all know it can’t hold together a broken exhaust pipe or anything that might take on some kind of forceful leverage, but it is pretty handy. Even though we all like to say duct tape fixes everything, the sad reality is, it’s only good for certain things. There’s a new product around now that appears to be what we always hope or thought duct tape would really be, and the video you’re about to watch here is the ridiculously funny promo video for that product.

The video itself is so funny that it would be near impossible for me to ruin it for you, but I’ll take it easy on the breakdown of it. In short, a “redneck” builds an exterior roll cage around a car, tapes all the joints together with duct tape, then launches it off a cliff. If you have even the slightest conception of reality, you don’t really need me to tell you that it didn’t work out so well. But, the same “redneck” did the project again, this time using FiberFix and, sure enough, it held together pretty well.

Of course, a part in all of us really want to see that duct tape hold the first roll cage together, but that just isn’t the way duct tape works. That said, there’s a lot more to the video than a couple of cars getting launched off of a cliff, and you’re in for quite a few hearty laughs along the way. Go ahead and click play to get in a few laughs for yourself. Feel free to comment your thoughts or experiences with FiberFix in the comments section below.


PostHeaderIcon John Oliver Sheds Light on the Dishonest Business of Subprime Auto Loans and Buy-Here, Pay-Here Dealerships

Have you ever wondered how those buy-here, pay-here car dealerships with in-house financing are able to and why they are willing to finance just about anybody? The truth is unless you’ve REALLY jacked your credit up (and I’m talking about multiple repossessions, house foreclosures, and bankruptcies) you can probably get a car. Some buy here, pay here places don’t even verify your income or check to see if you can actually afford your payment. Seems like a bad idea, right? Well it is, and John Oliver breaks it down for you in the video you’re about to watch.

The video is rather long and pretty funny too, so it’s well worth the 18 minutes it will take of your time. In the video he even talks about a 2003 Kia Optima that was sold nearly ten times over a three-year period, being repossessed within a few months of each time it sold. What’s even more crazy about the whole thing is subprime lenders typically charge upward of two, three, or even four times the blue book value of the car at interest rates that are absolutely out of this world.

And, even if that is enough to make your blood boil, there’s a lot more in the video that you’ll want to hear – especially if you’re someone who’s considering going to a buy-here, pay-here place to get your next ride. There’s no shame in it, but be vigilant and make sure you know exactly what you’re getting into. Make sure you can make the payment no matter what and be prepared to pay way more than the car is worth. Sometimes it’s a matter of necessity, and that’s OK, but make sure you’re well informed before you sign your name on the dotted line! Click play, and enjoy the video!


PostHeaderIcon Acura Buys a Ferrari 458, Examines it, then Cuts it up and Throws it Away

It wasn’t that long ago that I brought you news about Honda purchasing a Porsche 911 GT3 and the funny message Porsche left in its engine bay after a recall was performed. Now more news is surfacing via Autocar that says Acura also bought a Ferrari 458 Italia. You might think that the car’s successor, the 488 GTB, would be a better candidate for benchmarking purposes, but the 458 stayed at the top of the charts for a long time.

So, Acura must have felt it could learn something from the now discontinued supercar, but what Acura did after it was done with the 458 isn’t going to sit well with Ferrari. Apparently, a company inside has told Autocar that once Acura engineers were done, they cut the car into pieces and tossed it into the dumpsters at Acura’s research and development lab in Japan. Really?

So, a car as great as the 458 Italia, was cut up and thrown out for Otto the garbage man. Seems pretty wild, doesn’t it? The question is whether Acura just didn’t want to deal with auctioning the car off or whether the engineers thought the car was crap and gave it a suitable death. Either way, once Ferrari gets word of this, people in the upper offices are going to lose their minds – we all know how sensitive and arrogant Ferrari is about its cars.

PostHeaderIcon Lexus Drivers Get Their Own Parking Spots Now?

It seems more like a move you would expect from more overzealous manufacturers like Rolls-Royce or Bentley, who’s vehicles often serve as a status symbol for the greedy and overly wealthy. But as it turns out, even Lexus owners can have a little bit of status flare with the new parking spots at Edmonton’s International Airport. A total of 30 parking spots inside the parkade at EIA have been purchased by Lexus and are reserved for – you guessed it – those who drive Lexus vehicles. Does it sound crazy? Well, even if it does, it’s 100-percent true.

As it turns out, Lexus thought that its customers near EIA deserve special amenities and signed a contract for the short-term purchase of parking spots near pedways and elevators. For what it’s worth, the 30 parking spots are just a small percentage of the 2,200 spaces available inside the parkade and an even smaller chunk of the 13,000 available on EIA property, but some of the general public is already lashing out.

Twitter feeds have been blowing up over the new parking spots, with the general public claiming that these reserved parking spots are “elitist” and even reinforce the stereotypes about people who drive and market expensive cars. Be that as it may, Lexus of Edmonton said told the Global News that the purchase of these parking spots is “a way to offer a unique experience to Lexus owners in the city.”

Matt Miller – the General Manager of Lexus of Edmonton – said, “What we look to do is offer Lexus drivers a great ownership experience. So it is the amenities that we offer in the dealership and now finding ways to offer great amenities to them outside of the dealership as well.”

I know some of you are already about to jump on the complaint wagon and assume that parking spots for the handicapped have been used to create these spots, but EIA says that isn’t the case – claiming no handicapped parking stalls have been moved. The contract between Lexus and EIA is only valid until March of 2017, but there is an option to extend the contract should the dealership decide to do so. EIA also notes that it is open to contracts with other vehicle brands as well, should any other brand want to jump on board.

Is this the beginning of something new? If this idea takes off, what will it mean for those of us who don’t drive luxury vehicles? Keep reading to hear my thoughts. Come on – you know it will be entertaining.

PostHeaderIcon Are Some of the Male Actors in Fast 8 Candy Asses? The Rock Thinks So

The filming of Fast 8 is about to come to an end, and apparently, the Rock couldn’t be happier. In a recent Instagram post, he spoke about great Universal and his female co-stars have been during the filming of the latest installment of the franchise, but went on to blast his male co-stars saying:

“My male co-stars, however, are a different story. Some conduct themselves as stand-up men and true professionals, while others don’t.” and, it gets even better, as he went on to say, “The ones that don’t are too chicken shit to do anything about it anyway. Candy asses.”

Those are pretty big words from a pretty big guy, and it really leads you to wonder just what the hell someone did to piss him off so bad. He even claims that it will be evident in some of the scenes that his blood really is boiling, but goes on to say that it will play out great for the move anyway. Of course, working in close contact with a large group of people like the stars of this franchise would be enough to get under anyone’s skin after a while. I’m sure there’s nothing easy about filming a movie and, after a while, I’m sure everyone drives each other crazy with annoying habits.
