I Have An Idea: Let's Straight-Pipe All The Mercedes V12s I Have An Idea: Let's Straight-Pipe All The Mercedes V12s

V12 engines. Their numbers are dwindling, sadly. And I predict that, in the coming years, they might be phased out completely in favor of smaller but more efficient systems. So, I propose that they go out with a bang.

What's Your Strangest Car Superstition? What's Your Strangest Car Superstition?

Dirt Is Pretty Good For A 100-Minute Lucas Oil Commercial Dirt Is Pretty Good For A 100-Minute Lucas Oil Commercial

I thought Dirt was going to be another feel-good, coming-of-age sports movie. And in many ways it is. What I did not bank on was the fact that it kind of turned out to be a walking talking Lucas Oil ad. Which, if you watch the movie through that lens, makes things truly bizarre.

This Joke Is Not Funny Because The Car Should Be Real This Joke Is Not Funny Because The Car Should Be Real

April Fool’s Day is this weekend, which means that a few automakers will attempt to prank the world with silly jokes and press releases. Normally, I’d ignore such foolishness, but this one from Honda and concerning a fake CR-V Roadster concept really hit me where it hurts.

I Can't Get Over How Under-Designed Cadillac Rear Ends Are I Can't Get Over How Under-Designed Cadillac Rear Ends Are

Modern Cadillacs have some of the most aggressive and awesome front ends on any car today. They are angular and sharp and mean and wonderful. And then you get to the back of the car and it’s like all the designers just... quit work a little early.
