On a trip to Virginia Beach with my high school's concert band, I witnessed a woman providing road head to the driver of a mid-2000s Merc. I wanted to tell everyone around me, but I was surrounded by faculty. The nurse was less than thrilled over my exuberance. » 10/24/14 12:57pm Yesterday 12:57pm

My dad just bought a used 2012 Kia Optima with less than 10K miles on it about 6 months ago. In September, he drove out to Ohio to visit his sister and got rear ended at a red light by a woman in an older minivan who just clearly wasn't paying attention. Straight up walloped him in the rear. Fast forward to about a… » 10/08/14 2:12pm 10/08/14 2:12pm

Rutgers University - I'm on the EE route from the New Brunswick Train Station to Biel Road on Cook campus to visit my girlfriend who was still in school (I graduated the year before). It was late on Friday and I was on a bus packed, especially by a group of 7-8 girls in their best party attire. I squeeze on the bus… » 9/03/14 1:13pm 9/03/14 1:13pm

The Gadgetmobile from Inspector Gadget was cool as hell in theory: a car that can change from a minivan to a sports car in the blink of an eye.

Any car that gives you an option to be conservative dad mobile over hoon… » 8/28/14 1:59pm 8/28/14 1:59pm

There is quite a perception that American cars are complete piles of shit and while they were right during the 80s and 90s, American cars have gotten infinitely times better than during the malaise era. I drive American and have no qualms about buying American again. » 8/01/14 12:25pm 8/01/14 12:25pm

I went to trade in my Cobalt at a dealership in PA for a Saab 9-3 Wagon with a manual. It was listed at $8,000 but the price had dropped to about $7,750. I went fully prepared to do business but it was my first time going to a dealership for myself and I was rather overwhelmed by the whole deal. I wanted to have… » 7/31/14 12:21pm 7/31/14 12:21pm

I had the pleasure of finding one of these assholes in a Cummins Diesel on my ride home from Virginia on Sunday. He had the most obnoxiously large stack and the worst part about it was that he was rolling coal in bumper to bumper traffic. The density of the smoke was almost impossible to see through and extremely… » 7/08/14 3:46pm 7/08/14 3:46pm
