Don't confuse commuting culture for car culture. Cars are great. Choosing to experience the country from a car, since it was largely designed for it, is a great experience. Obviously, living somewhere that forces you to get stuck in your Camry at 20 mph for hours a week isn't, but that's commuting culture. » 4/18/14 4:43pm Yesterday 4:43pm

What's even better is suburban spots like the Houston suburb of The Woodlands, where I grew up, which added a fake main street for a city entirely designed by a corporation that never had any kind of main street. There are even billboards for fake companies with bronze statues of fake kids. » 4/18/14 2:59pm Yesterday 2:59pm

How Ford Crammed A Mind-Blowing Movie Theater Into A Van

From the outside it looks like a normal Ford Transit van, but on the inside there's a private movie theater decked out with its own tablet-controlled media server, drop-down screen, high-def projector, and ridiculously nice seating.

Every Easter Egg On The 2015 Jeep Renegade

We've been all over the 2015 Jeep Renegade, heard how fuel efficient it's going to be and how many toys are going to be crammed into its tiny frame. But since Jeep loves to remind us about their seven-slatted off-road heritage, let's see if we can find every easter egg on their new mini SUV. » 4/17/14 3:37pm Thursday 3:37pm

The Scion FR-S Release 1.0 Is Yellow As Fuck

Why do we love the Scion FR-S? It's an affordable, RWD sports car with a flat-four engine that has a center of gravity somewhere near the Marianas Trench. How do you improve on that? Lower it, as Scion just did with their FR-S Release 1.0. It's also extremely yellow. » 4/16/14 2:20pm Wednesday 2:20pm

The real reason you care about this is they somehow…

It doesn't really bother me that people want to travel with or own firearms, but it cracks my shit up how forgetful people can be. Some of these aren't cheap guns and it's not like a bottle of water, you can't just chuck it before you get on a plane. » 4/15/14 2:51pm Tuesday 2:51pm

The difference between this recall, and say, the Jeep recall, is that this is happening sooooooooo slowly. It's not just the speed, but that each new revelation is fairly newsworthy. The congressional investigation is a large part of the reason why. » 4/14/14 7:42pm Monday 7:42pm
