Last Call: All the CUBES but not all of the juice…

car memes

I know there was a version that got down to 230 hp. But even if this image isn’t perfectly accurate, it’s still pretty damn funny. There is an entire era of large-ass engines that are choked to hell and back so the power outputs are far less than what someone might expect. Last Call indicates the […]

Last Call: It’s all about branding

@pielcanela was t-boned in their Nissan and shared a picture of the aftermath of their arm on Twitter. It ignited a thread of others sharing their arms being “branded” by their airbags deploying the auto manufacturer logos to their arms rapidly.

Last Call: Vacuum Cup Cord Tires

Vacuum Tube Tires

Sometimes I feel like there are so many innovations that were stopped before their benefits could be realized. Why shouldn’t we have tires built out of vacuum cups? Have you ever seen an octopus go sliding off the road? That’s right. You haven’t because they have vacuum cups for feet. How many more amazing ideas […]

Last Call: Missouri Highway Patrol looking for The Joker

In May of last year I wrote how now is a good time to custom order your new car. If you have the time to wait, you can get whatever you want, configured how you want it. Suddenly those on-line configurators make sense. This also allows one to confirm a buying price, avoiding bullshit dealer […]

Last Call: Peasant in a Jeep edition

Modern Jeeps are anything but cheap. It’s difficult not to spend over $50,000 on a new Wrangler or a Grand Cherokee. Over the last decade, if not more, Chrysler’s checkered reliability has been significantly improved. So now imagine driving three generations old Range Rover, which certainly has its issues, and thinking you’re somehow superior to… […]
