And if you could fashion these things out of your car on a desert island, you could definitely build the following things using your car in other (less isolated) settings.

10 Far-Out ’50s Concept Cars that Look Like They’re Ready for Take-Off

Inspired by the space race and radical rocket designs of the time, 1950s automakers dreamt up a series of boundary-pushing “cars of the future.” Today, these prototypes often look amusingly retro-futuristic, like something out of classic Hanna-Barbera cartoon The Jetsons or original ’60s sci-fi hit Star Trek. At the time, though, they were sleek, cutting-edge and ultra-modern.

These concept cars were sometimes presented as atomic energy-powered, engineless prototypes for, despite the now-obvious dangers, this was how designers envisaged the future of motoring. In some cases their creations featured designs and technologies subsequently taken for granted – mostly, though, these fascinating prototypes represent a mid-20th century, sci-fi-inspired view of a future that never materialized.

Ten Vehicles We’ve Been Waiting a Century For

Here’s a gem we should have never forgotten. In the year 1900, Jean-Marc Côté and a collection of other French artists created a series of postcards for the 1900 World Exhibition in Paris. The subject of the postcards: France in the year 2000. The idea caught on and Russian and German prints were released in the years that followed. The result, a number of incredibly awesome new modes of transportation. The world would be so much cooler if this is how we got around.

Baja Bugs

Out here in California we have all manner of off-road buggies and trucks. From modified Ford Raptors to full-on rock climbers, this state truly has it all. One of the more common vehicles we run across are Baja Bugs. These are modified VW Beetles that have the ability to go just about anywhere. They’re light, fun and a piece of cake to work on. The guys from Motor Trends “Dirt Every Day” recently grabbed two of these little buggers and decided to have a little fun.

The way Christmas should sound!

Christmas Stang

There are a few of us out there who think that Santa’s sleigh should be powered by a blown nitro-burning big-block, and that Rudolph’s nose should be replaced with a pair of angel-eyes from a BMW. Not only do I understand this mentality, but I totally agree with it. You see for us car guys Christmas is not so much a time of giving gifts, as it is a time too build, modify and create. Hot rods, imports and euro-sleds from around the world are enclosed in their garages for the winter just waiting for their owners to lay their hands upon them and upgrade, upgrade, upgrade. Some of us live in the land of snow and ice, which mean that our winters are long and harsh. Those in the sunshine belt however are blessed, as they truly can enjoy this holiday season. For those of us who are part of the chosen-frozen, I would like to present you with this Mustang fastback, as nothing says Merry Christmas like a well tuned V8.

Car Washing

What would you do if someone told you that it was against the law to actually wash your own car on the property of a house that you bought and paid for. Would you be upset, repulsed, what? Apparently that’s exactly what happened to this gentlemen after his neighbor (who apparently doesn’t like him) call the cops over to do one thing. Bust. His. Balls.
